Beautiful Property in Chicklade, Salisbury


Boatwrights of Tisbury are delighted to market this stunning attached five bedroom period property with a wealth of sophisticated character and charm. Down House forms the main part of a large country house, set within private, well established gardens with the benefit of an additional fruit orchard.

The spacious accommodation is set over four storeys, which includes a large drawing room with original sash windows with shutters and an open fire place, a well-proportioned kitchen/dining room with Aga, family room, garden/boot room and downstairs WC all on the ground floor with a large cellar below which runs for the whole length of the house. On the second floor are two large double bedrooms one of which has its own en suite, a third smaller bedroom and a family bathroom. Stairs then lead to the third floor where two further bedrooms and a study can be found, with a further storage room.

The house is approached via a shared gravel driveway which swings around the property into its own private parking area with a timber garage. A beautiful, mature, south facing garden measuring approximately 0.2 of acre sweeps round in front and to the side of the house, offering privacy and a great space for entertaining. Laid mainly to lawn the garden is enclosed by a high brick wall with an abundance of flowers and shrubs. In addition, there is a lovely patio area perfect for alfresco dining. From the driveway and opposite the house is access to a beautiful, tranquil, fruit orchard/paddock measuring approximately 0.2 of an acre.

This attractive piece of land offers much scope to create a further garden, an area for animals or other uses. It adjoins neighbouring fields and has direct access into the surrounding countryside, with extensive off road walking across Great Ridge, in the Cranborne Chase Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with breathtaking views.

The property is being marketed at the asking price of £550,000. EPC: F.
