The Parsonage is a beautiful four bedroom Grade II Listed cottage which is believed to date back to around 1900-1910. Interestingly, the size of the rooms and the ceiling heights are greater than one would expect in a traditional thatched cottage. We believe that the thatch was replaced in about 2004 and the ridge is scheduled and booked in to be renewed by the current owners shortly. The current owners have been in residence since 2007 and have extended and improved the property whilst maintaining the all important character and charm. Timber framed, double glazed windows have been installed throughout the property. We highly recommend an internal viewing to appreciate the size and layout of this lovely cottage.
The main entrance is accessed via a beautiful thatched porch way with natural stone flooring with the main door leading into the hallway.
Stairs rising to the first floor and a door leading to the sitting room. There is also useful understairs storage.
Two windows to the front overlooking the garden and to the fields beyond. Open working fireplace and exposed beams. Radiator with decorative covering. Door leads through to the kitchen.
A wonderful entertaining space with natural stone floor, under floor heating and bi-folding doors opening up the kitchen into the garden providing superb alfresco dining.

The Parsonage is set back from the lane with an attractive front, mainly lawned garden with garden gate, steps and a stone pathway leading to the front door. The garden wraps around the side of the house and to the rear where there is a gravel driveway which opens out offering ample parking. There is an annex which has been converted from the garage and has a side store room. The garden has been well looked after and there are a number of stocked flower and shrub borders and fruit trees.
The Woodford Valley is a highly regarded and sought after area to the north of Salisbury. The surrounding countryside is beautiful and interspersed with picturesque villages. The Parsonage is situated in the small parish of Wilsford cum Lake where there is a Church. The market town of Amesbury is nearby (2.5 miles) and provides most day to day requirements and the Woodford Valley has a good number of public houses. The Cathedral City of Salisbury is about 8 miles away and provides a comprehensive range of shopping, dining and cultural facilities. The area is renowned for its first class schooling, both private and state. Around Salisbury these include: Chafyn Grove, Leaden Hall, Godolphin, South Wilts Grammar School and Bishop Wordsworth’s. Further afield there are Farleigh, Port Regis, Sandroyd, St Mary’s Shaftesbury, Bryanston and Marlborough. The area is very popular for the country sporting enthusiast with fishing on the River Avon and its tributaries, good shoots and an abundance of walking, cycling and riding over the network of lanes, footpaths and bridleways. There is horse racing at Salisbury, Newbury and Wincanton. There is golf at the High Post Golf Club.
