A very well presented four bedroom chalet property situated in a wonderful rural location just outside Sixpenny Handley with uninterrupted panoramic views. The property also has a separate annexe/studio with gardens and paddocks of almost two acres plus the benefit of direct access to the bridleway.

Agents note: We have been advised that an additional 2-4 acres are available to rent/buy under separate negotiation.

Sixpenny Handley is positioned on the edge of the Cranborne Chase, just over the hill from the Chalke Valley and surrounded by some of the most picturesque countryside on the Wiltshire/Dorset border. A busy and thriving village with a good range of local amenities including a post office, village store, butchers shop, doctor's surgery, primary school, public house. The village is within an easy drive to the Cathedral City of Salisbury, which has a more comprehensive range of Shops restaurants and weekly market. Recreational amenities include a theatre, cinema and arts centre. There is excellent walking, cycling and riding all around, whilst there is racing at Salisbury and Wincanton, as well as golf, rugby, tennis and football clubs. The coast is just under an hour's drive to the south. There is also an excellent range of primary schools and pre-schools in the nearby area, with excellent secondary and grammar schools in Salisbury.

The property sits well back from the road along a private driveway leading to the gated driveway giving ample space for parking plus a three bay carport. The front garden has decorative borders and flower beds with mature trees creating a very private and tranquil setting.

Upon entering the home you are greeted by a spacious entrance hallway with stairs to the first floor and wooden doors provide access to the ground floor rooms. The sitting room lies to the front of the property with a feature inglenook style fireplace with inset wood burner and return door to the dining room. Being dual aspect there are very pretty views toward the front and side elevation. The dining room opens through to the kitchen which is very much in a country style and enjoys a fabulous range of floor and wall mounted units with solid wood worktops, a traditional pantry and double opening doors into the conservatory. The adjacent utility / boot room has ample space for laundry appliances, gives access to the cloakroom/ wc and a door to the outside. Bedroom two and three are located on the ground floor and are serviced by the family bathroom which has a lovely modern suite including a corner shower cubicle. The first floor has two further bedrooms which have the most fabulous countryside views and are both generous in size.

Outside the garage has been converted and is now fully insulated providing ancillary accommodation and could be a self-contained annexe (subject to any planning consents required). Internally this comprises one large L-shaped room with store cupboard, patio doors to the garden and an en-suite shower room. It also would be an home office/studio. The rear gardens are carefully planted and many specimen mature trees and shrubs interspersed with patio and seating areas, perfect for enjoying informal gatherings with family and friends and enjoying the delightful setting. The paddocks are rich Downland chalk divided using post and rail fencing to provide three areas and include two hay stores, two field shelters and a loose box. The property is surrounded by neighbouring fields giving open and far reaching views and a lovely feeling of space.
