Property of the Day: The Grange, Winterbourne Dauntsey, Salisbury

A fine Georgian country house set in 17 acres

THE PROPERTY: This Grade II-listed property comprises a seven-bedroom main house, two cottages and a further flat. In a separate building there is a large indoor swimming pool with changing rooms, shower rooms, a kitchen, pavilion and an attached conservatory. The property also features an outdoor tennis court and a spacious, thatched oak-framed party barn. The formal gardens which have been designed and landscaped over the past 37 years are exquisitely varied featuring sunken streams with bridges, woodland gardens, an orchard and a Japanese-style garden. 

THE LOCATION: Situated in the charming village of Winterbourne Dauntsey in Wiltshire, the Grange is a mere 15-minute drive from Salisbury. The cathedral city offers plenty of leisure and shopping facilities as well as regular rail services to London Waterloo. 

THE INTERIOR: The spacious reception rooms are finished in a typical Georgian style and are well-proportioned with generous windows. Three of the bedrooms in the main house are en-suite and there are four further double bedrooms and two family bathrooms. The Stable Block is a two-bedroom cottage attached to the garages, with a gas fire in the sitting room and French doors opening onto a terrace above the stream. The Courtyard Cottage adjoins the Pool House though it has separate access, parking and a small private garden. There is also a large one-bedroom flat above the garages, known as the Retreat.

WHY WE LOVE IT: The indoor swimming pool is set in a beautiful oak-timbered building, and with the additional features of an attached conservatory and kitchen, it is a wonderful space for summer entertaining.
