A fantastic and cleverly extended family house with superb outbuildings and a delightful garden in the heart of the village. Tucked away near the heart of the pretty village of South Perrott first glimpses of Sarum are most impressive, with its attractive faade a clever juxtaposition of old and new, constructed of local stone under a pretty slate roof. Dating back to the 16th century, and justifiably Grade II Listed of architectural and historical importance, on first entering the property there is a real sense of space and charm. The property was cleverly and sympathetically extended in 2001 and is now a truly fantastic family home with well-proportioned and light rooms. There are many rooms in the house worth a special mention including the superb drawing room which forms part of the extension and fastidious program of works that took place in 2001. This wonderful room has an attractive central stone fireplace and double doors leading out onto a secluded terrace and delightful garden. The original part of the house is totally untainted by inappropriate modernisation and offers any purchaser a chance to modernise with a sizeable family kitchen which is rare for a property of this type and age. Alongside the kitchen is a study, dining room and a fantastic sitting/TV/snug room with a woodburning stove. The principal bedrooms are situated on the first floor, two with en suite bath/shower rooms. The real surprise however is the delightful and very good size garden which is a 'utopia' for children and animals, with a large lawned area and backing onto open countryside. There are two garden sheds and a greenhouse. The other outbuildings include a quadruple garage with superb office/storeroom above and planning permission to convert the two garages with an upper floor area into a residence. All in all, this is a wonderful family home in a very popular and convenient location.
