A spacious detached four bedroom house with an integral one bedroom annexe, set in approx. eight acres with stables, manege and paddocks in a beautiful location in the heart of the Pewsey Vale
We understand the house was built in the early 1970’s and it offers spacious and flexible accommodation over two floors. The majority of the rooms have a southerly aspect with lovely far reaching views over the property’s own land to the Pewsey Vale beyond.
Subject to the necessary permissions there is scope to modify and / or extend the house, as there are no immediate neighbours and it is a wonderful spot. There are lapsed planning permissions to extend the annexe to put a second floor on it, as well as to build a 60m x 30m arena, American barn stable block and horse walker in the area where the current arena is situated.
The property is ideally suited to private equestrian use and the surrounding area, which is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, offers plenty of good outriding, cycling and country walks. The Ridgeway, Salisbury Plain and Savernake Forest are all close-by.
The property is located between the villages of Manningford Bruce and Wilcot around two miles from Pewsey, which has a range of local shops and amenities as well as a mainline railway station with regular services to London Paddington, which takes about one hour. The beautiful market town of Marlborough is only seven miles and Andover, Devizes, Newbury, Salisbury and Swindon are all close by, as are the A303 / M3 and M4 motorways. There are many good local schools, including Marlborough College, St John's, St Mary's Calne, Dauntsey’s as well as a host of good local primary schools.
