Corton House is a detached family home, with five bedrooms and more than 5,000 square feet of beautifully presented accommodation, set in the picturesque village of Corton in the beautiful Wylye Valley. The property features seven reception rooms, providing a wealth of living space and flexibility, plus a further two bedroom annexe, which can be used as guest accommodation or as a holiday let.

The 30ft triple aspect drawing room has timber beams overhead and a fine inglenook fireplace. There are also several other comfortable and highly attractive reception rooms for relaxing or entertaining, including the more contemporary sitting room, with its woodburning stove and French doors opening onto the rear gardens, the comfortable music room and the light and airy conservatory. There is a formal dining room, while the kitchen and breakfast room has a large Aga, and is fitted with plenty of storage, space for all of the necessary appliances, and space for a breakfast table for informal dining.

On the first floor there are five generous double bedrooms, including a very large master, with fitted wardrobes and an en suite bathroom. Each of the other bedrooms also has fitted storage, while the second bedroom also benefits from an en suite bathroom. There is also a family bathroom.

The property provides further accommodation in the shape of a two-bedroom annexe, situated above the garage. The annexe offers two double

bedrooms, a comfortable sitting room and a fully fitted kitchen and bathroom, and is ideal for guests, or for use as a holiday let.

The village of Corton lies in a peaceful location in the heart of the Wylye Valley. The village has a local pub, while nearby Heytesbury offers a range of useful amenities, which include a church, shop/post office, primary school and two public houses. A similar distance away, Codford provides a further range of facilities - a modern doctors surgery, garage and filling station, supermarket, theatre, village hall and sports field. A short drive away lies the town of Warminster, which meets most everyday needs. Both Bath and Salisbury are almost equidistant away and offer an excellent range of shopping, leisure and cultural facilities. There are fast road links to the A303, which is approximately five miles away and joins the M3 to London. Train services are provided at Warminster and Salisbury (London Waterloo) and also nearby

Westbury (London Paddington). The local area provides many opportunities for walking, riding and cycling, including walks along the River Wylye.

The area is also very popular because of the

excellent selection of schools at all levels. There

are popular primary schools in other local villages and Salisbury retains grammar schools for both boys and girls. Public schools in the area include Warminster, Dauntseys, St Mary's Shaftsbury, Port Regis and in Salisbury the Cathedral School, Godolphin and Chafyn Grove.

The property is set in an impressive 3.83 acres of grounds, including delightful gardens, an all-weather tennis court and an outdoor heated swimming pool. To the front of the property there is a large gravel driveway and parking area, while there is access to the triple garage at the side. The extensive gardens are a thoroughly pleasant setting to be enjoyed, and include immaculate lawns, paved terrace areas, well-stocked flowerbeds, a wealth of established shrubs and mature trees, an orchard and beautiful meadows. On the opposite side of the road is a paddock of about 1 acre.
