Guide price

Bedrooms: 5
An exquisite chain free four/five bedroom detached family home with river frontage, situated in approximately half an acre of grounds.

Built in 1924, West Lodge has been a loving family home for over 53 years. The idyllic village edge location coupled with a substantial river fronted garden provides a picturesque setting, pairing perfectly with this classic country house. Offering an enormous amount of potential for any buyer looking to tailor the home to their own specification, West Lodge amounts to circa. 1,953 sq ft of accommodation, set within approximately half and acre of grounds. A gated in-and-out driveway with two car ports is tucked behind a tall privet hedge, providing both privacy and ample off road parking.

Opening through to a sensational entrance hall, the eye is immediately drawn to the large feature chimney breast with a decorative wood burning stove inset. Although currently non-functional, the stove does have the option of being recommissioned should an incoming buyer wish to have the chimney re-lined, there is also a good-sized under stairs storage cupboard with lighting. Immediately off the hall is the 19 ft sitting room, glass and French doors occupy almost the entirety of the south facing wall, taking advantage of the spectacular view over the garden. Two further reception rooms occupy the ground floor, currently utilised as a breakfast room and separate dining room. The dining room also provides access through to the garden via French doors, whereas the breakfast room leads directly through to the kitchen. The kitchen has been immaculately maintained throughout its lifetime, and is home to the oil-fired AGA that heats water throughout the property. In 2022 a new condensing oil-fired boiler was fitted to heat the property. Completing the ground floor accommodation is the guest cloakroom, which also doubles up as the utility space with ample room for a washing machine and tumble dryer.

On the first floor of the property are four double bedrooms, three of which look out over the south facing garden. There is a further glass walled study on the first floor, which could be utilised as a fifth bedroom if required with some small adaptations. At the end of the first floor hallway is a substantial walk-in airing cupboard, which is also home to the water tank. The family bathroom completes the first floor accommodation. There is a large loft which has been partially boarded and fitted with lighting, which benefits from natural light from the east and west facing windows.

The superb and extensive south-facing gardens are a particular feature of this home. The rear garden is mature, well-manicured and largely laid to lawn. Planted trees, privet hedging and extensive flowerbeds border the property, which then leads directly to the river frontage with uninterrupted views of the River Nadder, Mill Stream and the land beyond. There is a number of outbuildings including two good sized stores and a large timber garden shed.

Barford St Martin is a thriving village which can be traced back to the 11th century, retaining a pub, an active parish church (itself dating back to the 13th century) and a fuel station with a small shop. The Anglo-Saxon town of Wilton (approximately 2 miles) has a good range of day to day facilities, with the Cathedral City of Salisbury and the city of Warminster both having an excellent range of further leisure, cultural, educational and shopping facilities. Salisbury also boasts a well-thought of Playhouse, twice-weekly charter market and a mainline station with trains to London Waterloo (journey time approximately 90 minutes).
