Built in 1999, 16 Heytesbury Park is one of four houses set in a quadrangle within a walled garden, formerly the kitchen gardens of Heytesbury House, which was owned by Siegfried Sassoon until his death in 1967. Heytesbury House is set in about 8 acres of beautiful parkland and is an important Grade II* Listed mansion designed by James Wyatt in 1782 and remodelled in 1920 by Sir John Sloane.

The property is exceptionally light, with generous accommodation and all the principle rooms overlook the stunning gardens.

A hallway accesses all the downstairs accommodation. The sitting room is dual aspect with a Victorian style fireplace with marble surround and inset gas fire. The dining room again is dual aspect with French doors opening out to the terrace. The kitchen/family room has an excellent range of floor and wall cupboards with granite work surfaces and double sink and space for a table and chairs. The family area has doors opening out to the garden. There is also a study, utility room and cloakroom. An internal door opens into the double garage that has substantial attic storage.

Heytesbury Park is located on the edge of the village of Heytesbury in the heart of the Wylye Valley. Heytesbury offers a range of useful amenities which include a church, shop/post office, primary school and two public houses. The nearby village of 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 to the north 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 5 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 and access to Salisbury Plain from the end of the lane.

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. Marlborough, St Mary's Calne, Bryanston, Sherborne and Bath are all accessible.

To the front of the house there is parking for three cars in front of the double garage. There are small areas of lawn to the front and side with double gates to the rear garden. The rear gardens are delightful, maintained to an exceptional standard and extend to about 0.51 of an acre. A large terrace runs the length of the property surrounded by raised flower beds full of roses. The garden is a wonderful mixture of lawns, established flower beds, mature trees and a variety of hedging which help create a feeling of different rooms within the garden. There is a wood Pergola with a slate roof and paved floor and has power connected. There is also an established Kitchen Garden with productive beds, soft fruits and fruit trees. The garden is surrounded by part of the original heated wall with brick patterning, similar to that found in

Heligan, Cornwall. There is also a substantial shed with power.
