Manor Farmhouse is a very attractive property of enormous character. It stands in an elevated position with far-reaching views over the surrounding countryside. The original house is thought to have been built in the early 18th Century with a fine Queen Anne frontage with the remaining extensions carried out tastefully over the last Century and more recently. The house is generously proportioned and noticeably filled with light. One of its most impressive features is the large kitchen with extended dining area, the most recent extension of the house, with high ceilings and large windows overlooking the walled garden. Doors also lead out onto a secluded and sun-trapped south facing terrace making a perfect spot for sunbathing and al fresco dining. A galleried office makes clever use of the vaulted ceiling. Behind the kitchen is a laundry/utility room with access to the garden.

The elegant drawing room is well-proportioned with exposed beams and a large fireplace makingfor perfect entertaining, with doors leading out to the garden. There is also a seperate dual aspect family/sitting room with a wood-burning stove. The study is open plan also with a wood-burning stove and lined with floor to ceiling bookshelves. An inner hallway has a useful back staircase and a door to the garden. There is a downstairs boiler room/cloakroom.

The accommodation is arranged over the first floor and offers flexible configuration with a double aspect master bedroom with an original fireplace, walk-in robe and a newly refurbishedand well-appointed en-suite bathroom with a walk-in shower. There are four further double bedrooms and a single bedroom which interconnects to the master bedroom. This could be used as a study, dressing room or would make an ideal nursery. The second floor leads to a large attic area with one end providing good storage space under the eaves and at the other a large space for a bedroom/study.

West Grimstead lies to the south of Salisbury off the A36 on the Wiltshire/Hampshire border and is one of a cluster of small villages. It has a 12th Century church and a community hub village hall. Bentley Wood provides 1700 acres of woodland for walking and riding. One of its biggest advantages is the close proximity to Salisbury and train stations and at the same time its solitude. Salisbury provides a number of good schools – South Wilts Grammar, Godolphin, Chafyn Grove, Salisbury Cathedral School and Bishops Wordsworth for boys.

Manor Farmhouse is located on the edge of the village of West Grimstead and situated very close to the 12th Century village church. The house is approached down a gravel drive with front lawn and stands in approximately 3.8 acres with glorious aspects. It boasts a particularly lovely walled south and east-facing garden with mature beds. Fields and woodland beyond provide uninterrupted views.

There is a small orchard with damson, apple and mulberry trees and a well-established vegetable patch and greenhouse. A gate leads to a paddock which may provide development opportunities for a swimming pool. There is also a smaller paddock to the side used for grazing.

To the side of the house is a block of three stables and tack room. At the front of the house is a garage/old barn which could be converted. There are also three small fields suitable for grazing within the land boundary.
