Wilton Place is a strikingly beautiful Georgian House, which enjoys both the convenience of the town and the picturesque privacy and seclusion of the countryside. The house has been carefully and sympathetically restored by the current owners and provides generous family accommodation, with high ceilings and a wealth of natural light throughout. Constructed of mellow brick elevations under a tiled roof, with a central portico and two Doric columns, the rear elevation features an ornate Palladian Venetian window and delightful views over the stunning gardens.

The accommodation flows neatly from the very impressive marble entrance hall, with its fine central staircase rising to the first floor. The dining room is grand, yet comfortable. The drawing room and morning room have interconnecting wedding doors and create wonderfully inviting and practical entertaining space. The floor-to-ceiling windows in the drawing room allow for another charming view of the gardens and an enormous amount of light. The kitchen/breakfast room is beautifully appointed, with integrated appliances, granite worktops and gas fired Aga, and leads through to a pretty sitting room which is perfect for family life. The gardens are easily accessed from the kitchen, sitting room, hall and drawing room.

The first floor is equally impressive, with four good bedrooms, a library (additional bedroom), dressing room and four bathrooms. The ceiling height is again generous and the master bedroom enjoys a commanding view of the garden. The second floor offers two further en-suite bedrooms, as well as a study, sitting room, occasional bedroom, guest WC and kitchenette. This could easily form a separate staff/teenagers' flat.

The lower ground floor has been fully tanked to provide a wonderful office - away from the main house and with an independent entrance from outside, a perfect wine store and a gym/media area.

The Annexe
The separate annexe is situated to the western side of the house and has its own private access. The accommodation has been finished to the same high standard as the main house and offers an open plan sitting room and kitchen, wetroom and bedroom. This is ideal either for staff or as a granny flat.

Wilton is a very pretty and active market town situated to the west of Salisbury. Of the few significant houses in the town, Wilton Place is certainly one of the most striking. Wilton has a comprehensive range of shops and facilities, including a local market, deli, baker, convenience stores, pubs and restaurants, pharmacy, bank and post office, dentists and doctors' surgeries, a Community Centre and the Michael Herbert Hall. Both Bath and Salisbury offer a wider range of shopping and cultural activities.

Road and rail communications are excellent from Wilton Place. The A303 is approximately 7 miles to the north, providing quick access to the M3 to the east and to the West Country. Regular rail services operate from Salisbury, with mainline services to London Waterloo from 88 minutes.

The area is also renowned for its excellent schooling, all within easy reach. The Salisbury schools include Leaden Hall, Godolphin, Chafyn Grove and the boys' and girls' grammar schools. Further afield are Port Regis, Sandroyd, Hazelgrove, Clayesmore, Canford and Sherborne,
Bryanston and St Mary's Shaftesbury.

There are plenty of sporting facilities in the area, including racing at Salisbury and Wincanton and golf at Rushmore and South West Wilts. It also offers excellent shooting and fishing.

The gardens lie to the south of Wilton Place and have been beautifully landscaped, providing a wonderfully private space in the heart of a pretty market town. The formal garden is mainly laid to lawn and leads to a large, attractive pond and on to a carrier of the River Nadder.

The lawns are flanked by beautiful herbaceous borders which are manicured and well-stocked. One of the most striking aspects of the garden is the mature trees, including two cedars and a copper beech. To the eastern boundary of the garden is a most attractive terrace, covered by a pergola, with raised beds and a pretty fountain.

Beyond the main and side gardens is a walled secret garden, which is an ideal place for children or indeed as a kitchen garden. There are also a number of outbuildings for storage.
