Aughton is an attractive hamlet set at the edge of the village of Collingbourne Kingston and at the edge of Salisbury Plain.  The hamlet lies 9 miles south of the popular market town of Marlborough, 10 miles east of Andover and 10 miles from Hungerford.   These towns provide a wide range of retail and leisure facilities.  There are a range of schools in the area with a primary school at Collingbourne Ducis, Pinewood and St Francis prep schools, St Johns Marlborough, Marlborough College, Dauntseys and St Margaret and St Mary’s Calne.  The A303 lies 8 miles to the south linking with the M3 and Junction 14 of the M4 lies 17 miles to the northeast.  Stations at Hungerford, Pewsey and Andover provide rail services to London Paddington and Waterloo respectively.

This Grade II Listed period farmhouse, believed to date from the late 1700's, is of brick and flint elevations under a pitched tiled roof and arranged over two storeys.  The accommodation is beautifully presented and provides ideal family living in a Country House style.  The property, subject to the relevant consents could well lend itself to extension.

The property is approached by way of its own drive leading to a parking area in front of the house which is set behind a bank of mature Yew and other trees creating a woodland garden.  The gardens, bordered in part by walls, lie behind and to the side of the house and are principally laid to lawn.  Set at the edge of the garden overlooking the fields is a heated swimming pool with a low profile retractable glazed cover allowing for its use either open or closed.  There is a changing room/pool house attached to the Barn.

Barn

The barn represents an amazing opportunity to a purchaser to create space to suit their own requirements subject to the relevant consents.  Currently it is used for storage and stabling and is of oak framed construction on a brick plinth and extending to some 3,700 sq ft.

Planning

Consent was granted to build an Artists Studio with Mezzanine level extending to about 1000 sq ft (ref:17/06615/FUL)

Land

The land lies to the west of the house and has its own access from the road.  Extending to some 7.5 acres, it is  used as permanent pasture with a picturesque winterbourne, its own water supply and a mixture of post and rail and electric wire and post fencing.
