Tenure: Freehold

A handsome and charming detached modern house set in nearly six acres, enjoying an enviable and delightful location with fine views on the edge of this well-regarded village and directly fronting the River Ebble with double and single bank fishing

The property in recent years has been subject to substantial alterations and additions including a complete overhaul of the plumbing and heating systems and electrics, along with new kitchen and bathrooms. The current owners have spared no
expense to create an outstanding well presented family home and have paid particular attention to ensuring that the majority of the accommodation takes full advantage of the glorious views over
the gardens, river and grounds.

On the ground floor, which enjoys under floor heating throughout, a very light reception hall has doors leading to the drawing room, with dual aspect and roaring Jetmaster open fire and leading through to a study as well as a very spacious further reception also with a dual aspect and vaulted ceiling. This latter is currently used as a library but could have a myriad of uses. Off the reception hall is a stunning dining room with double doors onto the gardens at either end with views across the gardens and down to the river. A superbly appointed fully fitted kitchen with Aga and larder is off the dining room. The other essentials are well catered for with a gardener's cloakroom, boot room, utility room and door leading into the garage. From the garage, stairs lead down to a sizeable basement ideal for storage. Stairs lead from the reception hall to the first floor which has been remodelled to offer tremendous flexibility with a mastersuite having gorgeous views across the gardens and river as well as a sumptuous dressing room, which alternatively could be an additional bedroom; alongside this a guest suite with its own bathroom. From the guest suite there is a door into two stores which could be with further remodelling turned into additional accommodation. A family bathroom completes the first floor. Stairs then lead to the second floor with two further double bedrooms.


Stocks Bridge House is located on the edge of the lovely village of Coombe Bissett and fully benefits from having excellent local facilities whilst having a truly unspoilt rural outlook across its gardens, the river valley and its own grounds. Coombe Bissett
has a very strong local community with many local clubs andsocieties, a thriving local shop and post office, pub and primary school (rated 'Good' by Ofsted 2016). There is also a good network of local footpaths including the nearby Wiltshire Wildlife Trust Reserve on Coombe Bissett Down. The Cathedral City of Salisbury is only four miles to the north and has a good array of retail, cultural and educational establishments, as well as a range
of award winning restaurants and bars. Schooling in Salisbury is excellent and includes Bishops Wordsworth's & South Wiltshire Grammar Schools, and Salisbury Cathedral School, Leaden Hall, Chafyn Grove, Leehurst Swan, Godolphin School and it's Preparatory School. Salisbury train station offers direct links to London Waterloo in 83 minutes and can also be accessed by the A303 and then onto the M3 to London.


Stocks Bridge House enjoys an extremely secluded location in a prime situation near the end of a no through lane. The grounds are impressive and have been lovingly cared for and reimagined
by the current owners, who have spent considerable time creating and replanting much of the gardens to create very distinct areas.

The approach to the house from the lane is across a wide walled and gravelled parking area to the front of the garage. Double gates then lead into the front gardens which have been designed
for privacy and to take advantage of the sun with a lovely terrace and wonderful raised beds and several specimen trees. Further down the lane there is a second parking area and adjacent to this
is a shed and greenhouse, all of which are screened from the main gardens.

To the rear of the house, a terrace bordered by flowers and shrubs leads down to a lawn which slopes down to the river. A stunning flower and shrub bed which has been cleverly planted to take
advantage of all of the seasons runs alongside the lawn on its eastern boundary.

At the bottom of the formal grounds is the River Ebble with a footbridge across into the rest of the grounds. The river meanders through the grounds and the house enjoys single bank fishing rights for about 300yds with double bank rights alongside the lawn below the house. Once over the bridge there is a very productive vegetable area with prodigious asparagus beds. There is then access into two adjacent fields. On the northern boundary
of the larger field there is a separate access onto Shoe Lane should any livestock need moving. Stocks Bridge House's gardens, river and grounds offer a wonderful wildlife habitat, including wild
trout and grayling in the river.

In total the grounds approach 5.9 acres.
