Tenure: Freehold

An exceptional opportunity to purchase a substantial, idyllically positioned country home.

Alton Parva House has been subject to a comprehensive and thorough schedule of improvement, having been a much cherished family home for the last four decades. The sympathetic renovation has transformed this home into a light and elegant, comfortable family residence. Upon entering the home the quality and attention to detail is immediately apparent. Whilst the accommodation now balances style with functionality, many of the original hallmarks of the original home are still evident.

A welcoming entrance hall gives way to all principal reception rooms. Newly fitted solid oak flooring seamlessly flows into the re-imagined ‘heart of the home’ kitchen/dining room. Fitted in a modern farmhouse style, there is an array of wall and base units with contrasting work surfaces over, perfectly combined with the continued oak flooring. There is a useful island unit providing additional work space and quality fitted double oven, induction hob, fridge/freezer, washing machine and dishwasher. The refurbished fitted dresser units give a nod to the homes original age. Beyond the kitchen is the useful utility/boiler room, cloakroom and rear lobby with a side door to outside.

Across the entrance hall you then find two formal reception rooms. Both rooms lend themselves to either a formal sitting room, office, dining room or snug. Both boast charming characterful features such as cast iron fireplaces, high skirting boards and peplum lights. The rear reception room also has French doors leading to the side terrace.

On the first floor you find four generous double bedrooms that have been beautifully presented. The master bedroom has a stunning modern en-suite shower room with high gloss ceramic tiling and marble effect marine-ply panelling finish to the over sized walk in double shower. The remaining three bedrooms are then serviced by a beautifully appointed family bathroom. Every room is flooded by natural light, emphasised by the newly laid carpets and fresh neutral decoration.

In all this substantial rural family home leaves a long lasting impression, offering lovely character features with all the convenience of a modern home.

An internal inspection is highly recommended to appreciate the size and flexibility of the accommodation on offer.


Alton Parva House is situated on the periphery of the popular village of Figheldean which lies in the Avon Valley area of Salisbury Plain near Stonehenge. Figheldean is exceptionally well placed for schools with a highly regarded C of E primary school in the village together with a good choice of state, private, public and grammar schools within the area. A good selection of local shops are within 5 minutes at Durrington and Netheravon whilst more extensive facilities are on offer in Amesbury. There are leisure facilities in Durrington and Amesbury including swimming pool and a number of gyms. The area is surrounded by outstanding walking, riding, cycling and fishing opportunities. Further afield are the Cathedral city of Salisbury 12 miles to the South and Marlborough 15 miles to the North. There are stations within easy reach on the London Waterloo and West coast line and London Paddington. The nearby A303 offers direct access to the West Country and London and the M3 to the East. This part of Wiltshire is understandably popular for its beauty and accessibility.


The home is idyllically positioned within a secluded sylvan setting set back down a private road. The sweeping driveway provides ample parking for multiple vehicles to the front and side of the home.

The home surrounded by its grounds that extend to over an acre. The gardens offer a wonderful degree of privacy and create the ultimate tranquil setting. Tree lined boundaries meet a glorious original walled section that wraps around two boundaries. Woodland views then open up to stunning uninterrupted views across neighbouring pasture land and open countryside.

The majority of the gardens are laid to lawn interspersed with specimen trees and abundant floral and herbaceous contoured beds and borders. There is a mature orchard and garden shed. There are then paved seating areas abutting the home, ideal for outdoor entertaining and dining, perfectly positioned to best enjoy this homes stunning setting. There is a fenced off kitchen garden, ready and prepared for vegetable patched, herbs and fruit cages. To the very rear of the garden an archway provides access to the woodland beyond and the river bank of the River Avon.

Established, private, level gardens of this style are truly rare, and when added to all this home offers internally there result is a very special, aspirational family home.
