Full description

An exceptional Country House which has been refurbished to the highest of standards set in a rural location close to Salisbury


The Moat House is situated within the charming village of Britford, surrounded by open countryside and water meadows, yet only 2 miles from the historic Cathedral City of Salisbury. Britford has a wonderful farm shop and a number of period houses and cottages which add considerably to its charm. The house is approached along a no-through lane which leads to a few other properties and a delightful church.

Salisbury is a short drive providing every day shopping facilities including Waitrose, local amenities and a direct mainline railway service to London Waterloo, taking from 85 minutes. Salisbury is renowned for its wide selection of both private and state schools and many others are within easy reach.

Sporting facilities in the area include fishing on the nearby chalk streams, golf at South West Wilts and Rushmore, racing at Salisbury, Newbury and Wincanton. Sailing along the south coast within 30 miles.


2 The Moat House has recently undergone an extensive restoration and refurbishment project delivered with great style by the acclaimed architect Ben Pentreath. The work has been carried out to the highest of standards using the best quality materials and finishes.

The house is built of mellow brick clad with wisteria and climbing roses under a slate roof, and forms part of an elegant Grade II Listed Georgian House. The pretty southern elevation has the hallmarks of the Georgian era with tall sash windows, but by contrast the northern elevation is partially castellated with Victorian Gothic windows.

The current owners have extensively reworked the layout which now works extremely well for modern family living and entertaining alike. They have created a new staircase hall with regency style staircase, restored and replaced fireplaces and fitted new cornicing and ceiling roses. In addition a superb new kitchen has been fitted with smeg gas oven and hob, 2 Meile dishwashers and 2 door oil fired Aga. All new bathrooms have been added with extremely high quality sanitary ware, largely Lefroy Brooks.

On the technical front, there has been a full mechanical engineering plan, including new oil fired boiler, central heating, hot water system and secondary glazing. Heating can be zoned on each floor.

The house has been re-wired and benefits from cat 5 cabling and high speed fibre optic broadband.

Please see the floor plans for room layout and dimensions.

Square Footage: 5,773 sq ft
