*VIDEO TOUR AVAILABLE* A hidden gem of a house, quietly tucked away to the side of a 'one way' lane just off the centre of the village. The house has been beautifully refurbished and is now a very beautiful, very comfortable and very spacious family home. There are lovely gardens all around the house and far reaching views up to Salisbury Plain
The Old House is Grade I Listed and is a former 14th Century Manor House, believed to have been the home to one of Anne Boleyns ladies-in-waiting. Extensively added to and refurbished
during the last three Centuries, this is now a substantial village house which has been further updated by the current owner, who has worked closely with the listed buildings officer throughout.
The house is full of period features including leaded windows, an early medieval double aisled open hall structure, exposed beams, panelling in the reception rooms, wooden window shutters and
open fireplaces. The extensive accommodation is arranged over two floors and provides plenty of flexible space for family living, with all the modern needs provided by the recent refurbishments. There is also scope to create a self-contained annexe on the ground floor, making it a very viable option for those looking for multigenerational living.
Set in fabulous, private gardens, there are lots of mature shrubs and trees, including a fabulous Cedar of LebanonTree. A gravel drive leads you to the back door with a further path round to the
front. There are vistas and seating areas on all sides from where the views over the rooftops to Salisbury Plain can be enjoyed. A large terrace area is ideal for entertaining and gravelled paths
lead you to a pond and fountain surrounded by arched roses and a par-terre box garden to the north. Of course, a keen gardener has much scope to enhance the existing garden further should they

The bustling village of Market Lavington sits just below Salisbury Plain; chalk grassland which affords wonderful walking and riding opportunities. There is a church (with private access from the garden) and pub in the well served village which has everything from a doctor's surgery to a library, hairdresser, post office, supermarket and butcher.
There is excellent schooling nearby for all ages in both the private and state sectors including Dauntseys, St Margaret's and St Mary's, Calne, Marlborough College and St Francis School in Pewsey. The comprehensive school in Lavington is very well regarded as are the primary schools in West Lavington and Great Cheverell.
Communications are good, with both the M3 and M4 motorways easily accessed and mainline stations within reach at both Pewsey and Chippenham (London Paddington just over an hour) or Westbury if heading west. The historic cities of Bath and Salisbury are around 20 miles away and the market towns of Devizes and Marlborough are close enough for everyday shopping, with weekly produce markets, supermarkets, boutiques, entertainment and plenty of restaurants and bars.
