THE AGENT SAYS...
Weaveland is a substantial family home built in the 1950s, offering spacious and versatile accommodation arranged over three floors. Situated in the pretty village of Coombe Bissett, it is just a short drive to Salisbury with its mainline station to London Waterloo, District Hospital and a vast range of shopping and leisure amenities. The property has been in the same ownership for 35 years and having been a loving family home, it now offers the next buyer the potential to come in and carry out a programme of refurbishment to really put their stamp on it. The rear extension/annexe offers great potential to be self contained accommodation for additional income or home working space.
Entrance to the property is via a porch. To the right of the front door is a cloakroom. Stairs rise to the first floor and doors from the hallway lead to the office, kitchen, dining room and sitting room. The conservatory interconnects the dining and sitting room, and both the dining room and conservatory open out to the garden. The dining room has solid oak flooring and a traditional fireplace provides a lovely focal point in the dual-aspect sitting room.
In the kitchen/breakfast room there is space for a traditional range/aga in addition to a modern hob (bottled gas supply). An exposed ceiling and wall beam add to the charming country style. The kitchen/breakfast room leads through to the utility area, which has a small larder, and access to the garden and rear extension. The extension houses bedroom 5, an office, and a shower room. Stairs lead down to the lower ground floor where there is a spacious games room with plenty of natural light and double doors to the outbuildings. There is also a cellar.
On the first floor, there are four generous sized bedrooms and two bathrooms. Directly at the top of the stairs is bedroom 3. To the left are bedroom 2, a bathroom and adjoining W/C which offer potential for reconfiguration into a lovely, dual-aspect master bedroom with en-suite. Turning right at the top of the stairs leads to bedrooms 1 and 4, with the family bathroom between them, again offering potential for layout change/en-suite addition.
There is plenty of storage upstairs, with built-in cupboards in two of the bedrooms and two further cupboards on the landing. The loft is mainly boarded and has 2 Velux skylights.
GARDEN AND GROUNDS
The property sits within its own grounds extending to approximately 0.44 of an acre, enjoying a private and secluded aspect with lovely areas to sit, including a large lawned area, which was formerly a tennis court. In the lower garden, there is a wonderful space for a large vegetable plot and even room for chickens! From here there is access to the outbuildings - a covered store area with two workshops and a wood store - and pedestrian access at the rear to a lovely walk along the Ebble River.
Coombe Bissett, in the Chalke Valley, has excellent village facilities, with a very good primary school and a bus service for senior schools (Salisbury has two acclaimed Grammar schools and several prep. and senior private schools). The village has a superb shop/post office, pub, 2 hard tennis courts and clubhouse, cricket pitch with pavilion, large village hall (serving various clubs) and an attractive medieval church. The Chalke valley hosts a very popular annual History Festival. Wilton House also has several interesting annual events, a fun adventure playground and is a great place to visit. There are lovely countryside walks in the area including the beautiful chalk downland of Coombe Bissett Down Wildlife Reserve. Just 6 miles away is Martin Down National Nature Reserve and there is a wealth of other wildlife areas and National Trust properties locally. The beautiful medieval city of Salisbury with its Cathedral and music, array of shopping and leisure facilities, and excellent transport links is only a short drive away. Further a?eld, but within an hours drive lie the New Forest, South Coast, Westquay Shopping Centre, and international airports at Southampton and Bournemouth.
