Greystones is located in an enviable position in the heart of the Woodford Valley. This substantial and attractive property offers an excellent array of generous family accommodation extending to over 3000 sq.ft, as well as just over 2.7 acres of gardens and grounds. The property was originally built just over three years ago by the renowned local developer Templeton Walker, who have a strong reputation for building homes to an exacting standard and to the highest specification. The property still has a full NHBC certificate in place. The property also has a fully integrated home networking system to facilitate entertainment, communication and audio throughout the whole home. The property is ideally suited to modern day living with an absolutely stunning 'heart of the home' dual aspect kitchen/dining/family room with bi-fold doors opening on to the rear terrace to maximise the southerly aspect and the views over the generous garden and grounds beyond. The kitchen area is beautifully appointed with a superb range of hand painted units, granite work surfaces and integrated appliances. Of particular note is the impressive drawing room with a dual aspect and double doors onto the garden with views over the grounds beyond. A further reception room is currently used as a second sitting room/study but could also be a formal dining room if required. A cloakroom and utility room complete the ground floor.
On the first floor there are five bedrooms, all with fitted wardrobes. Both the master bedroom and second bedroom benefit from en-suites whilst the three remaining bedrooms are served by the separate family bathroom. In addition to the main accommodation, the house also benefits from a superb, fully fitted home office or studio which is attached to the garage.
This offers further good sized space for those wishing to work from home or perhaps a teenage suite or games room.
The property is presented in immaculate order throughout and we thoroughly recommend an internal inspection to appreciate both the size of accommodation and the home’s position in this lovely 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 garage with shop, a church, a well regarded primary school (OFSTED Outstanding February 2009), a popular public house, bus stop and a number of societies. 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, Leaden Hall, 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 land extends in total to 2.73 acres, with formal grounds and then established pasture land.
A tremendous amount of thought and consideration has gone into the arrangement and presentation of the formal gardens. 'Garden rooms' have been created with abundant borders, numerous spring bulbs and mature trees.
The paved terrace and mature lawns adjacent to the house enjoy unrivalled, far reaching views to the south across undulating countryside, creating an ideal area to entertain and dine al fresco.
The house is approached from a quiet lane with a driveway offering access to fields and then to the double garage. The driveway continues to the front of the house with a contoured turning circle allowing generous further parking for guests. To the front of the house, mature hedging and tree planting has created a very secure space and offers a high degree of privacy.
The pasture land has been managed as a wild flower meadow, but could once again be used for equestrian purposes should you so wish.
Agents Note: The pasture land has a right of access across it to allow the neighbouring paddock animal movements.
