A contemporary architect designed five bedroom detached family home, with stunning countryside views.

Originally a wooden single-storey dwelling that was demolished and rebuilt from the ground up in 2016, Holmlea is a stunning modern family home, situated within approximately a quarter of an acre of grounds. Each element within the home has been painstakingly designed by a local architect to create a welcoming and bright atmosphere, the design received a commendation award in 2017 from Salisbury Civic Society. Of particular note is the primary bedrooms and open plan dining and living areas, all of which have large south facing windows with breath-taking views.

The home is perfectly proportioned and cleverly arranged, providing a natural flow of space that is perfect for family living. The property extends to approximately 2,905 sq ft of accommodation, arranged over three floors. The home enters into a substantial entrance hallway, the large galleried landing on the first floor allows for floor to ceiling windows that open the space up further in addition to letting in a fantastic amount of natural light. Immediately off the hallway is stairs to the upper floors, with an under stairs storage cupboard and guest cloakroom below. To the front of the accommodation is the study, which has been fitted with a bespoke desk and filing/storage cupboards. To the other side is a 17ft sitting room, ideal for use as a more formal reception area. To the rear of the ground floor is a fabulous 31ft open plan kitchen / dining room / family room, with south facing windows and glass sliding doors that run the length of the full wall. In addition to the beautiful view over the rear garden, the uncomplicated layout allows for a natural flow between the different areas within the room. The kitchen has been fitted with integrated high-quality appliances, with an island counter creating a natural divide from the dining area whilst also providing further counterspace. There is underfloor heating throughout the ground floor of the accommodation.

On the first floor are four good sized bedrooms, three of which are doubles, a large airing cupboard and the family bathroom.

The garden is bordered by mature shrubs and hedges, with a row of tall trees at the far end of the lawn. Beyond the tree line is stunning Wiltshire countryside.
