Black Horse House is a Grade II listed house built of local stone elevations under a red tile roof. Believed to have been built in the 1500's, the house was formerly a coaching inn. In later years the village post office was based at the house as was a Quaker meeting room. The current owners have created a wonderful home which is presented to a high standard throughout. Full of character features which include fireplaces and numerous window seats. All the principal reception rooms are well proportioned with excellent ceiling height.

The ground floor accommodation is extremely versatile with five good reception rooms. The drawing room is delightful with a large bay window, an open fireplace and is extremely light being dual aspect. There are two further sitting rooms, one with a large inglenook fireplace with wood burner. The kitchen is designed to catering standards with stainless steel work surfaces and a double sink. There is a 5 ring gas range cooker. Leading from the kitchen is a hard wood conservatory/garden room which is currently used as the dining room. Doors open out to the outside and onto the terrace and garden. Beyond the kitchen is a larder, boot and utility room.

On the first floor is the master bedroom with a pretty bay window and ensuite shower room. There are four further bedrooms and two bathrooms. Accessed from this floor is a wonderful studio which could easily be converted to create further accommodation. This room also has its own entrance to the garden.

Black Horse House is situated in the popular village of East Knoyle. There is a very active community and a variety of clubs, including a drama club and wine society, with a church, post office/store and the Fox and Hounds Inn all in close proximity. Nearby Tisbury has a number of independent shops and a mainline station to London Waterloo. Shaftesbury is within easy reach and caters for most daily requirements, while Salisbury offers a wider range of cultural, shopping and entertainment facilities.

The surrounding area is well known for its natural beauty and rolling countryside, yet is still extremely accessible, as the A303 is about two miles north of the village and provides access to the national motorway systems and airports via the M3. Access to the coast is via the A350.

The area is also very popular because of the excellent selection of schools at all levels. There are popular primary schools in the local villages and Salisbury has retained its grammar schools. Public schools in the area include Warminster, Dauntseys, St Mary's Shaftesbury, Port Regis, Marlborough, St Mary's Calne, Bryanston, Sandroyd, Hanford and Sherborne. Salisbury has the Cathedral School, Chafyn Grove, Leaden Hall and Godolphin.

The front of the house has a small garden mostly laid to gravel with box hedging. A path leads to the front door which has two magnolia trees on either side. Growing against the house are roses and a climbing hydrangea. The drive is at the side of the house leading to parking for several cars as well as two garages.
