A former Wiltshire coaching inn has been converted into a stunning ornate home and is now up for sale.

Arundell Farmhouse, situated midway between the villages of Donhead St. Andrew and Ludwell, has been listed on the property market with Knight Frank for £1,800,000.

The house began as a 19th century coaching inn named The Glove Inn serving travellers on the principal route between Salisbury and Shaftesbury.

It was then used as a farmhouse in the Victorian era, belonging to the Wardour Estate before it was at the centre of a 700-acre beef and sheep farm.

Finally, it was bought by the resident tenant farmer when the estate was sold off in 1946 and has been occupied by the same family ever since.

The home captures Georgian architecture well with a classic square plan design of two storeys above a suite of cellars.

Built of green sandstone and red brick with a pedimented front porch supported on stone columns, the home also has sash windows.

Arundell Farmhouse is Grade II-listed and has retained many original fittings including six-panel doors, timber and flagstone floors, fireplaces, working shutters and picture rails.

The original kitchen comes complete with a cooking range, a laundry room equipped with a double copper and bread oven plus a brewhouse and timber store.

There are four reception rooms, one of which is used as an office, along with a suite of very impressive cellars beneath.

The first floor contains seven bedrooms with four further double rooms in the attic.
About 80 yards from the house are buildings comprising an L-shaped range of period, stone-built farm buildings, a former grain dryer and a timber granary with a lean-to shelter.

One side of the L-shaped range comprises a central coach house flanked on one side by a farm worker's cottage and on the other by a store and hayloft.

Attached on one side of the cottage is a large stone-built workshop while the other side of the range incorporates a barn.

Adjacent to the barn is a timber-built grain store, that served as Land Girl accommodation during WWII, with a lean-to store and a further modern barn used for drying grain.

Behind the house and associated buildings are about 30 acres of land divided into three enclosures, known as Home Meadow, Lushes Ground and Barn Ground.

The property is in the council tax band of G and has an energy performance certificate rating of F.
