Gap House was constructed in 1986 to a pleasing, traditional design with a well planned layout and generously proportioned accommodation. Extended in 1990, the house offers good family living space, balanced by four bedrooms and two bathrooms.
Backing on to farmland at the rear and overlooking open countryside to the front, the property occupies a lovely edge of village location and stands within a large, beautifully tended garden. With ample parking, plus a garage, there is also an extremely useful detached Workshop.
Well presented, the house has a warm, welcoming feel with exposed brick and stripped pine doors adding character to the accommodation. From the central entrance hall there is a Cloakroom and built in storage cupboard. The spacious Drawing Room is a fine space for entertaining. Running the depth of the house and featuring a Jetmaster fireplace and built-in display and storage, the room is light and airy, with a bay window overlooking the pretty front garden and glass sliding doors opening to the Conservatory.
There is a good size, separate Dining Room, that could also be used as a large office or family room, as the Kitchen/Breakfast Room offers more than enough room for a large table and chairs. Fitted with a range of units, the Kitchen is a sociable space with a country feel, enhanced by colourful tiling and has a wide window looking out to the rear garden.
The adjoining Utility Room offers further appliance and storage space, houses the boiler and water softener and leads onto a very useful Boot Room with access to the garage.
On the first floor the Master Bedroom has fitted wardrobes and dressing table and has with the benefit of an en suite bathroom including a separate shower cubicle. There are three further, generous bedrooms and a family bathroom again including a shower cubicle.
To the front of the property there is plenty of private parking and a large Garage, with light and power connected. To the rear of the garage there is a useful area of covered storage, ideal for logs and a detached workshop with power.
The house is set back and slightly elevated from the lane, with the front garden having been carefully planned to provide an attractive and interesting entrance. Roses and clematis are trained to the front elevations, whilst mature hedging surrounds an area of lawn with well established herbaceous borders, and an attractive pond with waterfall feature.
The Conservatory opens to the lovely and very secluded courtyard at the rear of the house. Paved and surrounded by colourfully planted raised beds, the area provides the perfect spot to relax or entertain outside. To either end, steps and a ramp rise to the upper terrace. Almost a 'secret garden,' with carefully tended lawns and box parterre, mature flower borders, shrubs, ornamental and fruiting trees, combining to create a wonderfully verdant space.
Further steps lead to a charming seating area, shaded by a Tulip tree and enjoying distant views.
With two further sheds, providing all the storage that any avid gardener could need, chicken housing, vegetable beds and a greenhouse, the garden is as productive as it is beautiful, a perfect country garden that backs onto open farmlands.
The property is situated in a quiet location on the edge of the popular village of Stapleford, which enjoys an active community spirit and amenities including a church and inn and local garage and shop.
The nearby market town of Wilton offers a wider range of amenities whilst the Cathedral City of Salisbury has excellent
shopping, entertainment and recreational amenities.
Schooling within the area is excellent with highly regarded schools in both the private and state sector.
