THE PROPERTY

Built approximately 26 years ago primarily of stone under a tiled roof, Longbridge House stands in landscaped gardens set back from the road. The accommodation, which has been designed with real attention to detail with nicely proportioned rooms, is sensibly configured with a magnificent double height drawing room with french windows opening onto the terrace. There are three bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms at first floor level with the opportunity to extend over the kitchen/breakfast room or to convert the garaging into a useful annexe or further ancillary accommodation (subject to planning). Other attributes include wood strip floors in the drawing room and hall, cornicing in the principal reception rooms, sash windows, and open fireplaces in the drawing and sitting rooms. The property is approached off the road through timber gates onto a gravelled car parking and turning area, adjoining which is the timber clad garage under a slate roof with an adjoining store. The garden lies principally to the rear of the property and is laid to lawn, with a delightful terrace accessed from the kitchen, drawing room and sitting room, and flanked by colourful flower, shrub and lavender borders. The garden has been carefully landscaped with attractive flower and shrub borders, a greenhouse (screened by a timber trellis) and a wide variety of mature and specimen trees interspersed with box balls and hedging. There is an attractive flower border which extends around the side of the house with a colourful array of flowers and shrubs. To the front of the house there is an area accessed through a timber gate from the drive, to a small orchard with apple trees and flanked by tall hedging. Longbridge House is situated on the edge of Broad Chalke, a popular village in the heart of the Chalke valley. The village has a good range of amenities including a church, pub (The Queens Head), community run village shop and post office, doctors surgery, an excellent primary school, sports centre and cricket club together with a number of societies. The village is in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and approximately 8.5 miles west of the cathedral city of Salisbury which offers a wide selection of shops, restaurants, arts and recreational facilities. There is a mainline railway station from Salisbury to Exeter or London Waterloo with connections to Bristol and Southampton. The A303 is 16 miles to the North giving access to the South West and London via the M3. There are airports at Bournemouth and Southampton and ferries to the continent from Poole and Portsmouth.
