With fabulous far-reaching views over the surrounding countryside and occupying a prominent position on the edge of this much loved Wiltshire village, Whitehill Farm House is a detached family home of immense character set in private mature gardens with a large open bay garage and a substantial detached outbuilding. Having been occupied until the mid-20th Century by generations of the same family, the property features (in print and pictures) within a published history of Pitton; The Lost Village by Ralph Whitlock.

Known to be one of the oldest properties in the village, the original (central portion) of the farm house dates to c.1702 with two later add-ons; the right hand extension was constructed in 1905 followed 100 years later (2005) with the addition of an impressive solid “Oak Framed” structure on the left. Internally, the farm house offers over 2800 sq.ft of living accommodation which includes a truly excellent country kitchen and an equally impressive living room with exposed oak beamed vaulted ceiling, full height picture window and free standing log burner. In addition, the ground floor offers a reception hall, study, family room, sitting room, a sizeable utility room, shower room and a separate cloakroom. Off the first floor landing you will find a large Principal bedroom with en-suite, three further double bedrooms and a large family bathroom.

Whitehill Farm House is approached off an un-adopted private lane via a 5 bar gated drive with parking and access to a large open bay garage. There is also a substantial outbuilding providing additional garaging/workshop space and a games room with adjoining shower room, the whole extends to a further 1093 sq.ft of internal space. Subject to obtaining the relevant consent, it may be possible to convert the outbuildings for use as a self-contained annexe.

Offering a high degree of privacy, the south facing gardens extends mainly to the front and side with lawns, flower beds, shrubs, trees and a sunny terrace off the sitting room. A wonderful feature of the garden is the outside entertaining space which covers an area of almost 700 sq.ft and consists of a large decked sitting/dining area, detached cabin, bar and kitchen/preparation area with pizza oven.
