The Firs is a period family home built of local stone under a tile and thatched roof. It has been sympathetically restored retaining its character provided by original features, as well as tasteful, modern touches throughout including woodburners. The front of the property is home to the drawing room with exposed beams and impressive fireplace, family room and sitting room. To the rear is the large open plan kitchen/dining room and utility. The classic country style kitchen features a range of base and wall units, with a Belfast sink and 4 oven electric Aga, as well as a central island with electric oven, hob and breakfast bar. There is a further sitting room with stone fireplace, a modern family room, utility and cloakroom.

The first floor has six good sized bedrooms. The dual aspect master bedroom has an en suite bathroom with separate shower. A further bedroom also has an ensuite bathroom, and there is also a family bathroom.

The Firs is situated in the heart in the village of Fovant, a pretty village surrounded by lovely countryside half way between Salisbury and Shaftesbury. Fovant has a good village shop and

post office, pub, village hall, doctor's surgery and garage while the larger village of Tisbury has numerous independent shops, pubs and mainline rail services direct to Waterloo and the West country. Both Salisbury and Shaftesbury provide a comprehensive range of educational, shopping and recreational facilities. The A303 is nearby which gives access to the south west and to London via the M3. Fovant lies in the heart of the Nadder Valley, forming part of Wiltshire's Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The countryside is particularly beautiful with rolling chalk down land and attractive villages. The area is renowned for its excellent schools with primary and secondary schools in Tisbury as well as local independent schools including St Mary's Shaftesbury, Port Regis, Sandroyd, Bryanston and Sherborne. Salisbury offers very good Grammar Schools for both girls and boys.

The house is situated on its own well behind the high street and is approached via a long gravelled driveway. The variety of mature trees and hedges providing a large degree of privacy and seclusion. The driveway provides off road parking for multiple vehicles, whilst an outside barn offers three separate storage rooms inside. Subject to necessary consents, this building would convert well into some ancillary accommodation for staff, a relative, or simply 'overflow'. To the side and rear of the family home are beautifully landscaped gardens. A vast area of lawn extends to the woodland and closer to the property itself is a spacious terrace which is separated from the rest of the garden by a modern stone wall, offering a large and sociable space for al fresco dining and entertaining. The 360 degree garden continues with a further gravelled area to the rear, leading to the rear entrance hall of the property.
