There is also a dining room with large fireplace and sash window overlooking the rose garden and lawns beyond.

The property’s sitting room enjoys balcony views overlooking a secluded walled garden.

A wide and shallow rising staircase leads to the first floor where there are seven bedrooms, five bathrooms, a cloakroom and a laundry room.

Four of the bedrooms have en suite bathrooms.

A top floor attic has a series of rooms suitable as either storage or further bedrooms if needed.

The Wiltshire Gazette and Herald:

James McKillop, head of residential sales at Savills in Salisbury, said: “I think this must be one of the best opportunities on the market to put your own mark on such a significant country house.

"There is such a sense of 'faded grandeur' that is crying out for a sympathetic new owner to restore.”
