A magnificent Grade II* listed Palladian mansion with stunning far reaching views, Phythouse is ‘one of the finest privately-owned country houses in the South of England’, according to the agents. And while that’s a big claim, it’s hard not to agree.

The house, constructed of local Chilmark stone, and sits in an elevated position surrounded by immaculate lawns, below which delightful mature parkland and farmland slopes gently down into the valley below.

For sale with Knight Frank. See more pictures and details for this property.


Bedfordshire — £4,000,000

Wiltshire — £2,200,000

Malthouse Farm is an extremely well presented period Farmhouse with far reaching country views in desirable country location. Private grounds and stunning gardens surround the main house.
