Garstons is an attractive Arts & Crafts property, built in 1933 by Messrs Roles & Sons of Salisbury. The quintessential façade makes for a handsome house which has been in the same family for the last 35 years. Surprisingly unlisted, the property offers almost 4,600 sq. ft. of light-filled flexible accommodation arranged in a T-shaped configuration over two floors and has been sensitively modernised with retained features including leaded glazing, exposed wall and ceiling beams and original fireplaces.

Configured to provide an ideal family and entertaining space, the ground floor accommodation flows from a welcoming reception hall with feature stone fireplace and wood-burning stove to a large drawing room again with feature fireplace and woodburning stove; French doors open to the terrace. There is a generous panelled sitting room with feature fireplace and a door to the garden, along with a well-proportioned library and a spacious kitchen/breakfast room. The kitchen has a range of wall and base units, a four-oven AGA, modern integrated appliances, a walk-in larder and space for a large breakfast table. The ground floor accommodation is completed by an en-suite bedroom with an inter-connecting study with a door to the garden. This could be used as a self-contained annexe. There is also a Butler's pantry with useful W.C. and a separate store room with a door to the garden.

The first floor accommodation, accessible over two separate staircases, provides a substantial principal bedroom with a window seat, built-in storage and Jack & Jill en-suite bathroom. There are six further well-proportioned bedrooms, an airing cupboard, a large family bathroom and a useful separate W.C. Garstons Cottage is a detached redbrick single storey property, situated at the entrance to Garstons with a reception hall, sitting room, dining room, fitted kitchen, two bedrooms, a family bathroom and separate W.C.

The property is surrounded by its own land and sits within the stunning Wylye Valley countryside adjoining the Cranborne Chase Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and several sites of Special Scientific Interest. Bordering the River Wylye, the attractive village of Heytesbury lies broadly equidistant between Salisbury and Bath and has a good range of amenities including a church, shop/Post Office, two public houses, cricket club and popular primary school. The nearby village of Codford offers further facilities including a village hall, modern GP surgery, garage and petrol station. More extensive amenities can be found in Warminster town centre, which has a wide range of independent shops and a Waitrose supermarket. The cathedral cities of Salisbury and Bath both offer extensive shopping, leisure and cultural amenities.

Communication links are excellent: the A303 provides a link to the M3, M25, London and the West Country and Warminster station offers regular services to central London in around 2 hours and Westbury to London in 78 minutes. The area offers a wide range of state primary and secondary schooling together with noted independent schools including Bishopstrow College, Warminster, Dauntsey's, Appleford, Springmead, Port Regis, Emmaus, Sandroyd, Salisbury Cathedral School, Chafyn Grove and Godolphin.

Surrounded by its own land, extending to 34 acres, Garstons is approached along its own sweeping tree-lined driveway flanked on each side by areas of stock-fenced pasture leading to a gravelled drive and turning area with space for numerous cars. The formal gardens are bordered by well-stocked flower and shrub beds leading down to a water garden and the River Wyle.

A large terrace with central pond provides far reaching views over the river and the Wiltshire Downs beyond. The property is bordered by mature trees and the Wylye River runs along the western boundary with further acreage accessed via a footbridge. The pasture land benefits from agricultural covenants protecting its use to grazing and cropping. On the land there is a large outbuilding with three barns, a large L-shaped outbuilding with hardstanding incorporating a 37 ft. barn.
