Situated in a desirable central location is this substantial, versatile, Grade II listed town house with much character and a wealth of period features. Sympathetically updated and extended over the years, the property enjoys rooms of generous proportions and a flexible layout including three ground floor reception rooms. Well-presented throughout, there are many character features including wooden parquet floors, cast iron fireplaces and fitted storage, complemented by the property’s classic and timeless décor. Entered via an internal porch the property has a flowing ground floor layout beginning with a study/family room and adjacent drawing room ideal for formal entertaining. The 19ft drawing room features a log burner with decorative mantle and a dual aspect, while the family room has a marble fireplace with open fire and fitted shelves to either side. The further ground floor accommodation comprises a separate dining room also with fireplace and fitted storage, accessed via a charming, recently updated country-style kitchen/breakfast room with bespoke painted wooden floor cabinets topped with solid wood work surfaces. Appliances include an integrated fridge, dishwasher and space for a freestanding range cooker, with additional space available for appliances in the neighbouring utility room. A cloakroom completes the ground floor accommodation.
A sweeping staircase leads to the first floor landing with fitted bookcase and a large airing cupboard. The impressive master suite features a cast iron fireplace with wood mantle leading to a dressing area with hanging storage which also has open access from the landing. From here there is a door to a modern fitted bathroom. In addition, there are four further sizeable bedrooms on the first floor with an interconnecting door between bedrooms three and five, all of which are serviced by a well-appointed separate shower room. On the second floor there is a sixth bedroom/study which features charming wooden beams and views across the town’s rooftops, with three eaves cupboards.
The market town of Warminster has a good range of shopping and day-to-day facilities. Bath and Salisbury are both within easy driving distance offering a much wider selection of social and recreational amenities also with excellent shopping centres. This area has become particularly sough- after because of the exceptional number of good schools, both state and private, at all levels including Warminster School, Marlborough College, St Mary's Calne, Port Regis and Dauntseys as well as the schools in Salisbury and Bath. Communications are excellent with the A303/M3 providing good access to London and the west country. Mainline rail services run from Warminster to London Waterloo with more regular services from Westbury to London Paddington and from Salisbury to London Waterloo.
The property is located close to the heart of the town centre with access straight off Church Street to the detached garage and into an internal porch. A second door leads through a covered walkway to the rear garden, which is enclosed by a rustic brick wall on three sides. The garden is designed in an L-shape style with a stone patio adjacent to the house and steps leading up to a lawn area to the rear boundary, where there is a second paved seating area with a stone built barbecue, ideal for al-fresco dining and entertaining, enjoying a wonderful degree of privacy. The garden has a number of beds and mature shrubs including a climbing rose on the house, plus trees of various heights to provide a sense of seclusion.
