Furlong House is a sympathetically restored, detached, period village home with a wonderful historic connection to Stonehenge. This charming home has been considerably enhanced by the high standard of renovation and refurbishment carried out by the current owners, which includes new windows throughout and a glorious garden room extension. Particular attention has been made to retaining many original period features whilst creating a light and airy ambience. There is an abundance of accommodation arranged over two floors along with a very sunny and private walled garden. The ample accommodation is spacious, with the ground floor comprising three reception rooms, including a sitting room, dining room, snug/study, a kitchen which opens into the most amazing space with a vaulted glass ceiling garden room, which could double as a breakfast/family room, and cloakroom. On the first floor there are four double bedrooms, as well as a family bathroom. Each room is well presented to remain in keeping with the home's intrinsic character and history.
Shrewton is a highly popular, friendly village in the heart of Salisbury Plain. The village itself offers an array of local amenities including two doctors, convenience store, butcher, hairdresser, recreation ground and a local pub. The nearby town of Amesbury offers further amenities including a choice of supermarkets, doctors, dentists, a library, restaurants and plenty of local shops, including a butcher, bakery and pubs. The Cathedral City of Salisbury is eleven miles to the south and provides a comprehensive choice of schooling, further shopping, restaurants, leisure facilities and a theatre. Local communications are excellent, the A303 is easily accessible (London/Exeter) and there is a main line train service from Salisbury (London Waterloo 85 mins).
The gardens of this fine home are a particular feature. To the front and side are well tended lawns with shrub borders. To the rear the garden is split into two distinct areas. Immediately adjacent to the house is an extremely private terraced area, ideal for entertaining and dining al fresco. There are areas of lawn and further shrub borders with a path leading to the double garage and then into the remainder of the garden which is mainly walled and laid to lawn with shrub borders, there is also a good sized garden shed/studio. The detached double garage is ideal for storage and benefits from power and light and offers additional off road parking to the front.
Furlong House has a blue plaque identifying it as the birthplace of Sir Cecil Chubb who gifted Stonehenge to the nation. He was the last private owner of the stones, having originally bought it for his wife as a birthday present. His incredible Deed of Gift has enabled millions of people to enjoy access to Stonehenge and still enables the residents of Shrewton to have free access to the site to this day.
