DESCRIPTION A traditional Grade II listed stone built farmhouse dating back to the 17th Century set on a quiet country lane in the heart of the Wiltshire countryside. To the rear is a classic English country garden with an abundance of shrubs, trees, plants and orchard all enclosed within red brick walls and a stream with a tennis court. There is a traditional courtyard of period outbuildings that could suit a variety of uses. The house is in need of updating but this is an exciting opportunity to renovate this lovely farmhouse whilst retaining exposed beams, floorboards, fireplaces and panelling that will make this a stunning family home. There is a further outbuilding/workshop with a 1 acre paddock, and a small copse of about 1 acre across the lane from the house. Note: The seller will consider selling the house and garden separately from the workspace and paddock and the copse.
