DESCRIPTION: Elm Farm House is a charming Grade II listed property built originally, we understand, in the 17th century of flint and lime plus some brick, with a rendered front, all under a tiled roof. The property was formerly owned by the MOD and was purchased by our clients in the early 1980s who have maintained and improved the property to a very high standard. The house has the benefit of an oil fired central heating system as well as partial double glazing and has many of the original features including lovely shutters to the sitting room front windows, original fireplaces, exposed oak beams, internal panelled doors, the property's own post box and own well. Full modernisation has also been carried out with refurbishment of the kitchen in recent years as well as provision of an en-suite shower room in the main bedroom and the addition of a conservatory to the rear of the property.
The property has an interesting range of outbuildings including a double tandem garage, formerly the creamery, a large courtyard area to the side with circular parking area adjacent to the former byre or stable. At the rear of the house there is a large former wash house/storage room adjacent to the coal hole and workshop and on the northern side of the property there is also a further office building. There is a long thin area of lawn to the rear of the house beyond which there is a vegetable garden ideal for chickens or fruit beds.
LOCATION: The property is located near to the centre of Chitterne overlooking the village cricket ground. The village has local facilities including a hall, public house and church whilst the nearest primary school is available either in Shrewton, Tilshead or Codford nearby.
