The Granary is a carefully designed and beautifully presented house in one of the most glorious positions that this part of Wiltshire has to offer.
The house and gardens have been the subject of comprehensive redesign in recent years and the key focus has been to create a house that works in complete harmony with its fabulous setting. Sections of the panoramic views are framed by large windows in the principal reception rooms. Nowhere is this more apparent than in the drawing room which has views on two aspects, one provided by an expansive bay window facing east down the valley.
On the southern side are glazed doors which as well as providing further views, also fold back creating an intimate connection between the living space and terrace that overlooks the garden to the view beyond. All the main rooms enjoy the sun throughout the day.
The house extends into a further wing providing additional accommodation. The Cottage has its own entrance from the lane and could be used as either additional bedrooms to the house, staff accommodation or as a letting.
There is further potential to create additional room in the storage area and in the loft above.
The Chalke Valley is part of the Cranborne Chase and West Wiltshire Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is one of the most sought after addresses in the area.
The shape and character of the village is irrevocably linked to the River Ebble and the undulating chalk downland that immediately surrounds it. It is over this glorious valley that The Granary commands its sensational views towards Salisbury. On a clear day the spire of Salisbury Cathedral is visible 12 miles away.
Salisbury and Shaftesbury (9.5 miles) have an extensive range of convenient shops, boutiques and supermarkets. Ludwell Stores is 5 miles.
The area is also renowned for its excellent prep schools including Claysmore, Port Regis and Sandroyd, and public schools St Maryís Shaftesbury, Bryanston, Milton Abbey and Sherborne. There are also very good grammar schools in Salisbury.

Incredible is the most appropriate word that can possibly describe The Granary; a one-off property located in an elevated position in Wiltshire overlooking the beautiful countryside of the Dorset / Wiltshire borders.
A rare opportunity of buying something remote, yet easily accessible to the outside world.The house has to be visited to appreciate its unique nature.
The Granary is approached through electrically operated gates which lead to a large parking area and access to the garage barn and stable block.
To the south of the house lies a sheltered and beautifully landscaped formal garden designed by John Brookes, one of the most influential garden designers of the late twentieth century, which is mostly laid to lawn but interspersed with carefully chosen planting. This area overlooks a more informal area of the property which has a parkland feel. There is a pond and the current owners have planted new trees which will, in time, add further interest and maturity to the outlook.
There is a heated swimming pool surrounded by a secluded terrace.
There is also an L-shaped brick and flint stable block. There are 5 stables, a tack room and store which have power, light and mains water connected. These stables are currently used as a workshop, log store, furniture store, car wash room and small kitchen and outside lavatory.
