The Apartment is within a Listed Historic (18th century) Town House. The restoration of the house and the Apartment was the subject of a 15 part TV documentary which followed the owners, Peter and Sandy's, initial restoration of the house in 1999. Over the 16 years they have lived in the house they have continued the restoration work and more recently the house won Period Living Magazine's Town House of the year 2011.
The Apartment has been totally up-dated and furnished with the same style and elegance as the main house.
There is an eclectic mix of antique and contemporary furniture throughout the Apartment which is elegant and very comfortable.
As the Apartment is on the top floor of the house, the large Sitting Room has great views out over the Market Square and roof tops of Wilton.
Both the bedrooms are a spacious and light and have large new double bed in one room and King/or twin beds in the master bedroom both with crisp white bed linen, cupboards for storage, bedside tables and so on.
The contemporary kitchen has also been updated, with a new oven, microwave, coffee machine, washing machine, plenty of shelving and storage etc and a larder cupboard stocked with most cooking essentials, such as tea, coffee, oil, etc.

The Apartment is ideally located within a pretty tree-lined square set in the quintessential English market town of Wilton. Once the ancient and historical Capital of Wessex, it has a wide range of family owned shops, cafes, pubs, and a great delicatessen as well as the Earl of Pembroke's Wilton House, described as England's most beautiful country house all with easy walking distance.

The enchanting Catherdral City of Salisbury is about 1.5 miles to the east and offers a more extensive range of both shopping and entertainment facilities.

Wilton is ideally located to explore the World Heritage site of Stonehenge, Avebury, Wardour Castle, the New Forest national park, lackock Abbey, City of Bath to name a few.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

About the owner: Sandy and Peter operate a Chartered Architect's Practice next to the property based in a converted church. www.classicarchitecture.co.uk

Why the Owner Chose Salisbury:
The Apartment is within a Listed Historic (18th century) Town House. The restoration of the house was the subject of a 15 part TV documentary which followed Peter and Sandy's initial restoration of the house back in 2000. More recently the house won the prestigious Period Living Magazine's Town House of the year 2011 Award.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Three miles west of Salisbury, right where the Wylye and Nadder rivers meet, lies pretty Wilton, an attractive market town with a rich historical heritage, one that stretches right back to the 8th century AD and the Anglo-Saxons. Wilton was once the county town of Wiltshire, and for a place of – what? Four thousand people? – it has some remarkable claims to fame: Alfred the Great once lost a major battle here to advancing Danes; carpet-weaving expertise allowed the town to give its name to perhaps Britain’s most celebrated floor covering; while over the years it’s been home to everything from a major smallpox epidemic to the scrambled egg and moustaches of Britain’s military top brass. The house sits in a particularly pretty tree-lined square and is believed to date from 1860 or thereabouts – the year that Abraham Lincoln became US president and Charles Dickens published his first chapters of Great Expectations
