Built in 2007, Smoke Alley is constructed from a mixture of stone, brick and rendered elevations under a slate roof, and stands in delightful gardens and grounds. It is in an enviable position bordering the River Wylye and surrounded by undulating countryside. The house has been built to a high standard with real attention to detail, and has sensibly configured accommodation with nicely proportioned rooms. Attributes worthy of mention include the vaulted dining room, stone flooring in the hall, kitchen and cloakroom, an open fireplace in the drawing room and gas fired AGA. The property is approached from the road down an unadopted track leading through a five bar gate onto a tarmac drive, culminating in a gravelled car parking and turning area. The gardens lie to the side and to the rear of Smoke Alley and are principally to lawn with mature trees including copper beech and ash with a variety of colourful flower and shrub borders. There is separate fenced paddock to the south east of the drive with two stables, together with a small vegetable garden with raised beds. At the westerly end of the garden there is a heated swimming pool flanked by raised decking. In all approximately 1.4 acres. The Deverill Valley encompasses six villages on the Wiltshire Downs where the western edge of Salisbury Plain dips into Somerset.
