There is a well appointed utility room adjacent to the kitchen with a door leading out to the garden. A room of particular note is the stunning sitting room that has a warming focal point fireplace with elegant Regency surround and polished marble hearth, French doors then open out to the gardens beyond. The ground floor accommodation is completed by the additional formal dining room, study and cloakroom.

The annexe has its own private entrance, separate to the main home.
The property is presented in excellent order throughout and we thoroughly recommend an internal inspection to appreciate both the size of accommodation and the home's position within this superb village.
The Woodford Valley is a highly regarded and sought after area to the north of Salisbury and encompasses three small villages; Upper, Middle and Lower Woodford. The east of the parish is marked by the River Avon and to the west by an old road linking Salisbury to Devizes. The surrounding countryside is beautiful and interspersed with picturesque villages and a number of excellent walks and cycle rides as well as byways for horse riding. Middle Woodford lies at the heart of the Valley and is a quintessential village with an active community and ample facilities including a church, a well regarded primary school (OFSTED Outstanding February 2009), bus stop and a number of societies. There are popular Public Houses in both Lower and Upper Woodford. The Cathedral City of Salisbury is about 4 miles away offering a variety of regionally recognised retail, cultural and educational establishments all within easy reach as well as a range of award winning restaurants, bars and a lively twice weekly farmers market. An outstanding variety of leisure facilities are available nearby including golf, fishing, walking and riding.
The property is in a prime position to reach both Bishop Wordsworth’s School & South Wilts Grammar Schools, and Salisbury Cathedral School, Chafyn Grove, Leehurst Swan, Godolphin School and Preparatory School.
The communication to/from the area is superb and there is a regular train service to London Waterloo from Salisbury which takes about 86 minutes and from Grateley (11.5 miles) which takes about 80 minutes. To the north is the A303 which provides convenient access to the South West and London (via the M3).
The home is well positioned in its plot with a gated sweeping gravelled driveway leading to the home and providing ample parking and access to the garage. Next to the garage is a useful workshop and garden storage lobby with light, power and doors leading from the front garden to the rear.
The front gardens are predominantly laid to mature lawn with floral borders. There is an individual courtyard garden through a side gate for the annexe. A further side gate then leads through to the rear garden. Swathes of mature lawn are flanked and interspersed with established, colourful floral and herbaceous beds and borders. There is paved seating area, perfectly positioned to best enjoy the south westerly aspect, thus enjoying much sunshine. The gardens offer a high degree of privacy with walled and hedged boundaries.
