Nuthills Farm, Sandy LaneAbout this home
Nuthills Farm is a handsome farmhouse which dates from the early 19th Century with later additions including a beautiful neo-Georgian Style door. The present owners have spent a great deal of time and care restoring and refurbishing Nuthills Farm to an exceptionally high standard whilst retaining many original features. There is a wealth of light with large stone mullions, sliding sash windows and well-proportioned accommodation with high ceilinged, double aspect rooms throughout. Standing in a commanding position, lying behind stone walls, the house is privately set within its own delightful gardens and grounds offering spectacular and uninterrupted views across the Wiltshire countryside.
The ground floor offers generous and elegant reception rooms comprising an entrance hall with large staircase rising to first floor landing. An impressive drawing room and dining room with large windows overlooking the gardens and countryside beyond. The kitchen/breakfast room, with vaulted ceiling and electric Aga with gas module, is a superb space for relaxed family living especially with the adjoining family room. There is a study, boot/utility room, cloakroom and cellar all located on the ground floor.
On the first floor a wide landing leads to an impressive principal bedroom and an en-suite bathroom with stunning views over the gardens and beyond. A further three generous double bedrooms (1 en-suite) lead off the landing as well as an airing cupboard and family shower room.
The gardens, which are framed by some magnificent mature trees, have been very well designed to provide wonderful colour and privacy. The gardens are a balance of the formal with individual corners contrasting well with the lawns and numerous doors from the main house lead directly out to the terraces. Wonderful views of the surrounding countryside can be enjoyed from almost every aspect of the garden.
The Byre is located opposite the house and provides versatile accommodation currently comprising of a large open plan sitting room with wood burning stove, cloakroom, large double bedroom with a mezzanine area and a bathroom.
