DESCRIPTION: This offers a rare opportunity to purchase a most impressive large house built around 1919 of brick, stone and part rendered elevations under a slate roof. The original house has been extended to both side and rear and now offers extensive accommodation with great potential for further improvement if required. The house has the benefit of partial oil fired central heating with radiators to the ground floor as well as double glazing. One of the most impressive aspects of this property is the exceptionally large rooms, especially on the ground floor and much of the original character of the property has been retained. The house is set in a large garden with a former tennis court to one side and drive leading up to the excellent range of outbuildings including a double garage, further single garage and carport with turning space to the front. There is also an attractive ornamental area of garden with central pond, greenhouse and vegetable garden and small orchard area and fruit garden.

Inspection is strongly recommended to fully appreciate the qualities of this property.

LOCATION: The property is located just on the edge of Amesbury with all its good local facilities including shops, bank, schools, cafes, public houses and bus services. The A303 trunk road is within easy reach giving access to Andover, Basingstoke, London and the west country and the nearest railway station would be at Grateley or Andover with connections to London Waterloo.

The cathedral city of Salisbury is some eight miles to the south with its further good facilities and the property is located on the edge of the River Avon with many lovely walks and rides in the immediate vicinity. The famous English Heritage site of Stonehenge is also nearby.
