By the Way dates from the 1930's, one of a pair, designed to emulate a classic period house, with thatched roof and white washed elevations, but with the wonderful benefit of the spacious and light accommodation traditionally found in 30's houses.
Set within the popular village of Shrewton the house lies off the Rollestone Road, a sought after private road on the edge of the village. Consisting of a mix of period and individual modern houses, the area enjoys a good community and has easy access to village amenities and excellent walking country.
Beautifully presented, the house has been very carefully extended and modernised to create a fantastic large family house with an ideal layout, big rooms with excellent natural light and a pleasing open outlook across substantial gardens to the front and back of the property.
The plot is generous, the house set well back from the road behind a deep front garden and enjoys good privacy.
Oak flooring runs through the ground floor and there is carpet in the fabulous sitting room, a wonderful reception space, triple aspect and flooded with natural light and featuring traditional cast iron multi-fuel burning stove for colder days. Double doors open to the spacious Dining Room, making it ideal for entertaining, which in turn opens to a large Kitchen/Breakfast Room and additional seating area.
Well fitted, with a comprehensive range of units under granite worksurfaces, the Kitchen includes an integrated oven and hob with extractor over and has excellent built-in storage and a circular glass breakfast table and chairs. Opening to a further sitting or dining area, the space is perfect for family life and with sliding doors leading to the garden and patio area, it makes a wonderful summer reception and entertaining room. There is also a separate Utility Room, separate Cloakroom and a further reception space in the form of a large Study/Den with a Jetmaster fire.
On the first floor the master bedroom has far reaching views, has a large dressing room with walk-in wardrobe, built-in storage and an en-suite bathroom. The second bedroom also has built-in storage and en-suite shower room and there are two further bedrooms (one with plumbing in situ to create a further en-suite if required). The family bathroom is fitted with a roll top bath and separate double shower cubicle.
To the front of the property there is a spacious gated entrance drive with ample parking, leading to the detached Garage which has power connected and has a useful Den/Studio over. The front garden is bounded by clipped hedging, is on two levels with curved terrace and is very private, with a deep front lawn, bounded with well stock flower beds and rockeries.
The rear garden is equally as spacious, a large paved terrace bounded by a large fish pond, providing the perfect spot to entertain, leading up to large areas of lawn interspersed with shrubs and trees.
The property is situated in the village of Shrewton which is well served by local amenities including shops, doctors' surgery, school, garage, inns and churches. Amesbury offers more comprehensive facilities as does the Cathedral City of Salisbury which is the commercial and cultural focus for the area. Bus services run from the village and Salisbury has a mainline station to Waterloo (average travelling time about 1 hour 35 minutes). The A303 is conveniently close by, giving good road access via the M3 to London. As well as access to Grateley Station for even quicker access to London (average travelling time about 1 hr 20 minutes).
