About The Apple House

We think you will fall in love with this property! Set in the heart of a picturesque Wiltshire village with panoramic views of the surrounding countryside, this fabulous house is close to the historic market town of Salisbury and the World Heritage site at Stonehenge. The Apple House is an award winning built property, designed to be similar to the apple barn that once stood on the site. It has been created with wood cladding and black corrugated steel, a perfect blend of 'Grand Designs' appearance and warm old fashioned comfort.

This L shaped house has very generous contemporary living space. The Apple House has beautiful pale oak floors throughout comprising of a kitchen with range, an island, dining table and sofa with wide screen TV. The space is perfect for entertaining, eating or just washing away the stress of 21st century urban life. The hall floor created from reclaimed brick, leads into a pantry and boot room. The main bedroom has a four poster bed and an en suite dressing room and bathroom with an old style roll top bath and walk in shower. The upstairs bedroom has its own bathroom also with roll top bath. The owners can arrange for a child's bed (up to 9 years old) to be assembled here. There are multiple full length window and doors downstairs, allowing light to flood in and opening onto a south facing terrace with far-reaching views of the Nadder Valley and the 'Shaftesbury Drove'.

A perfect weekend getaway for couples or a short break for a family and an excellent base for the many attractions Wiltshire has to offer.
