The kitchen has an electric night storage Aga set in an inglenook fireplace, fitted wooden units with an integrated hob, oven and fridge and a butler sink. There is a window seat overlooking the walled garden and a door leads out to the paved south facing terrace, ideal for 'al fresco' dining. A useful utility room with fitted units and a cloakroom with a shower lie off the kitchen.

Upstairs the master bedroom suite has a dressing room, walk in wardrobe and an ensuite bathroom. There are three further good sized rooms and the family bathroom. The first floor has good ceiling heights for a property of this age and views out over the church and gardens.

Salisbury House is set in the popular village of Shepton Beauchamp. The village is surrounded by open farmland and is set in an Area of Outstanding Beauty. The village, itself in a conservation area, has a good range of local amenities which include a store/ post office, hairdresser, café, primary school, public house and parish church.
