Talks Farm is a very pretty Grade II listed farmhouse located on the edge of the hamlet of East Martin in Hampshire. The house is thatched and has lots of period features including large inglenook fireplaces and exposed beams. The dining room and drawing room are attractive spaces with sash windows with shutters, while the double aspect kitchen/breakfast room leads to the snug with its secondary staircase up to the first floor.
There are five bedrooms upstairs, and a modern family bathroom with a roll-top bath. Overall the property is in need of some updating but will make an extraordinarily charming family house.

Outside, adjoining the house is an L-shape of Grade II thatched barns with enormous potential. The front garden has a deep herbaceous border while the majority of the gardens are laid to lawn with mature trees and vegetable beds; there is ample space for a tennis court or swimming pool (the land comes to around 1.5 acres).
Talks Farm is situated on the edge of the hamlet of East Martin with views across Martin Down and the surrounding countryside. The village has a church and village hall while Damerham has a primary school, post office and a public house. Salisbury is just nine miles for further amenities.
