Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Squareys is a wonderful family home that is thought to have been built in 1850 and was originally two farmer's cottages. The current owners have lovingly cared for the property during their 37 year tenure. A large extension has helped to create a home perfect for modern day living with flexible and extensive accommodation, including an integrated double garage.

The front door opens on to the light and airy entrance hall from which there is access to the garage, the dual aspect dining room and the kitchen/breakfast room. The dining room is a good size, fitting a table seating eight easily and with an adjoining downstairs shower room. Through the conservatory is a practical and functional kitchen with a two door oil fired AGA. A large sitting room, with a pretty bay window and working fireplace, along with a cosy study completes the accommodation on the ground floor.

On the first floor there is a master bedroom with large walk in wardrobe which provides the opportunity to convert to an ensuite shower room subject to the necessary planning consents. In addition there are four further bedrooms, a family bathroom and family shower room. Most of the bedrooms benefit from wonderful views over the rolling Cranborne Chase countryside beyond.

The Cottage

Squareys Cottage, is a self-contained Grade II listed cottage with access from Drove Lane. The cottage has a cosy sitting room and kitchen downstairs, with a back door opening on to the separate garden. Upstairs there is a large double bedroom and a smaller single bedroom, which could be used as a study, along with a bathroom. The cottage adjoins the current workshop at Squareys and subject to the necessary planning consents, the workshop could be incorporated into the cottage to increase the extent of the accommodation.

Squareys is situated in the desirable village of Coombe Bissett, an extremely popular village in the Chalke Valley. Coombe Bissett has an active village community with a busy social calendar of events. Squareys is within walking distance of the centre of the village where there is a wonderful community run shop with post office, a church, pub, village hall and a primary school. A wider variety of entertainment and cultural amenities can be found in the nearby cathedral city of Salisbury. There is also a twice weekly market, a cinema, several theatres and a wide selection of restaurants and eateries. Salisbury also has a mainline railway station with regular services to London Waterloo (journey time approximately 90 minutes).

The Chalke Valley is an extremely attractive stretch of countryside which forms part of the Cranborne Chase Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. This beautiful countryside provides extensive walking, cycling and horse riding opportunities, a large number of which are directly accessible from Squareys.

The property is ideally located for families and commuters alike with access to the A303 and the south coast via either the A354 or A338
via Downton.

There is a good selection of private and state schools in the area including a well-regarded primary school in the village. Salisbury has retained its grammar schools; Bishop Wordsworth for boys and South Wilts for girls.

Squareys is approached up a short drive to the integrated double garage. The curtilage is approximately one acre and the garden is predominantly laid to lawn with well-established flower beds and mature trees. There is also a productive vegetable garden. A heated outdoor swimming pool is a feature of this garden and there is an adjoining pool house.

In addition there are two greenhouses, two sheds, a summerhouse and large traditional workshop.
