Mount Sorrel Farm is a charming house with parts dating back to the 17th Century. The house retains many of its original features and yet is not Listed. Many of the rooms are dual aspect and has good ceiling height throughout.

The delightful drawing room has a large fireplace with wood burner and French doors opening out onto the garden. The sitting room has a large bay window and a double sided wood burner with the dining room. The dining room over looks the pretty front garden and is the original part of the house. The kitchen/breakfast room has recently been replaced with bespoke wood cupboards and an electric Aga. There is also a conservatory, utility and cloakroom. An adjoining garage provides further storage.

On the first floor there are five bedrooms, a family bathroom, an en-suite bathroom to the master bedroom and an en-suite shower room off bedroom 2. There is also a secondary staircase which leads to a sixth bedroom/study which is above the garage.

Mount Sorrel Farm is nicely positioned on the edge of the village of Broad Chalke and is well set back from the village lane with the house surrounded by its gardens.

Broad Chalke is a particularly attractive village in the ever popular Chalke Valley and has a shop with a butcher and post office, primary school, sports centre and pub. Salisbury is within easy reach and offers a wide range of facilities as well as direct trains to London Waterloo every half hour.

The area is well served by a range of schools including Port Regis, Hanford, St Mary's Shaftesbury, Sandroyd and Bryanston. There are also a wide range of prep, private and grammar schools in Salisbury.

The Chalke Valley is a particularly beautiful and unspoilt stretch of countryside which forms part of the West Wiltshire Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. A wide range of foot and bridle paths run from Mount Sorrel across the surrounding countryside.

Mount Sorrel is approached over a gravel drive which leads to a turning and parking area adjacent to the detached double garage which has a loft room above which could be converted to an office or studio subject to the necessary consents.

The gardens wrap around the house and the front door is approached via a brick path, flanked by flower beds and lawn. The formal gardens lie mostly to the rear of the house with a large area of level lawn which then slopes upward to an elevated area of garden. On the right of the house is a more informal area of garden which is planted with a variety of fruit trees. Beyond lies the paddock which measures approximately 2 acres and which is held on a long lease from Wiltshire Council and has approximately 100 years left to run.
