THE HOUSE Set in a truly rural location with the principal rooms all enjoying a double aspect and countryside views, the farmhouse retains many period features with exposed red brickwork, oak beams and fireplaces.
The front door leads into the sitting room with inglenook fireplace and exposed beam above. An enclosed staircase leads upstairs. The dining room also has exposed beams and floorboards and has nice views of the gardens. The kitchen is fitted with a range of wooden units and has a Belfast sink and exposed beams. There is also a conservatory overlooking the garden, pantry and boot rooms. Accessed from the garden there is a large attached studio/office building and a further office and cloakroom/shower room. This space could provide further living space and would suit someone working from home. There are three bedrooms and two bathrooms on the first floor accessed via two staircases.
OUTSIDE The gardens are mature and well planted with shrubs and trees and border open countryside. There are a range of traditional farm buildings that provide stabling and work shop space. There is a metal framed 3 bay steel barn that has been used for machinery and hay storage but would suit a variety of uses. There is an array of solar panels on the barn roof that provide domestic energy and also an electric car charging point. Adjacent to the drive is an all-weather riding arena with a sand and rubber surface and there are some all-weather turn out pens suitable for horses and ponies in the winter months. The land is fairly level but slopes slightly towards the railway line in one corner. There is an excellent network of bridleways and hacking in the vicinity and excellent equestrian facilities close by. West Wilts Equestrian centre, Warminster Saddle Club, local pony clubs and riding clubs all have an extensive range of competitions for all ages and ability and are all on the doorstep.
LOCATION Set within open countryside just outside the village of Dilton Marsh and the hamlet of Brokerswood, just a few miles from the town of Westbury. Dilton Marsh is a well-equipped village which offers various shops, a pub and a primary school. The towns of Warminster and Westbury are all easily accessible, with nearby Westbury main line station for a direct service to London (Paddington). The cities of Bath and Bristol are both within commuting distance, and there are excellent private and state schools in Warminster, Frome and Salisbury.
Recreational facilities locally are good with golf, fishing, tennis, bowls and horse racing close by, with tourist attractions such as Bath, Longleat, Stourhead, Westbury White Horse and Cley Hill all on the doorstep. The nearby village of Beckington also has the added benefit of a Marks and Spencer mini-supermarket and 24 hour garage and the outstanding and award-winning White Row Farm shop with Scallop Shell fish and chip shop.
AGENTS NOTE The property is accessed via a long track that is uneven in places. A footpath follows the driveway and then crosses our land as shown on the map.
