A rare opportunity to purchase this substantial and most impressive property boasting 3471 sq. ft. of accommodation and attractive façade with castellated turrets constructed of brick and stone. The property has recently been used as a guest house and therefore is currently arranged with nine bedrooms and seven bath/shower-rooms. The reception rooms are decorated in a classical style and include an elegant 23ft sitting room featuring decorative cornicing, ornate plasterwork and attractive fireplace. There is a second sitting room/snug and, to the rear with lovely vistas over the garden, is the current breakfast room with patio doors. This connects with the snug and with some configuration would enable a substantial family kitchen/family room to be created (subject to the necessary consents).
Currently arranged in two parts with two bedrooms on the ground floor sharing a bathroom with interconnecting study and staircase access to the two bedrooms above which share a bathroom. The other bedrooms are reached via the original hallway where there are five well-presented bedrooms of a good size with attractive décor and each of which benefits from an en-suite bath or shower room.
Located on the western side of Amesbury close in a desirable and pretty area near to Bonnymead Park with a stunning rural setting but with excellent communication links. The River Avon runs close by and there is easy access to open countryside with nearby Stonehenge. Amesbury town centre is approx. 1.5 miles which is a well-established town with easy access to the A303 located just to the north of the town with supermarkets, public houses, hotels, fitness centre, post office, cafes, doctors’ surgery, dentist, hairdressers and a variety of shops.
There is a primary school and The Stonehenge School in Amesbury, Bishops & South Wilts Grammar School within reach and in Salisbury The Cathedral School, Leaden Hall, Chafyn Grove, Leehurst Swan, Godolphin School and Preparatory School.
Salisbury 8 miles to the south also offers further shopping, restaurants, leisure facilities, a theatre and a thriving market.
Local communications are excellent, with a mainline train station at Salisbury serving London Waterloo in approx. 85 minutes.
With grounds totalling 0.28 acres, the property has a wide frontage and private drive providing ample parking for a number of vehicles in marked bays which culminates at a grand porticoed front door. With a favourable southerly aspect, the rear garden is delightful offering mature and landscaped grounds with sweeping lawns, well-stocked flower beds and an attractive rockery surrounding a pond which is a charming focal point. The garden offers a high degree of seclusion being enclosed by mature evergreen hedgerows with several seating areas including a stone patio by the house. Other features include a variety of outbuildings including a substantial 20ft shed, a wooden shed and a classical style folly draws the eye right down the garden and is a lovely place to sit and enjoy long vistas back towards the attractive rear façade.
The property still enjoys its designation as a Guest House, and can be used as such with residential. To be purely used as a residential property wholly would require changing its planning designation.
