Save for the wooden beams and the odd patch of exposed brickwork, guests would have no idea that this was a converted threshing barn dating back to 1820 if they were to just go by the interior. Subtle spotlights in the ceiling, wooden floors and an ultra-sleek kitchen mean this home would slot in rather seamlessly in any urban environment. However, the views out of the huge windows give the game away — guests in the mezzanine living room can enjoy a bucolic panorama of Chalke Valley and acres of working arable farmland on which this building sits. As you can well imagine, there's a whole host of walking routes in the Wiltshire countryside that start pretty much as you leave the front door and the nearest pub is about twenty-five minutes away in the village of Fovent if you need an incentive. The town of Salisbury can be reached in the same amount of time in the car, as well.
