A superbly presented period home with character features situated in a Nadder Valley village setting with a wonderful South facing garden, lovely views & a garden studio

Property
A detached cottage style home thought to have been built in the late 19th Century, possibly as a pair of cottages. Originally thatched, the property has been comprehensively renovated and altered over the years and now has a mix of stone and rendered external elevations under a tiled roof. In recent times it has been further improved and modernised whilst retaining much of its intrinsic period character creating a really lovely, beautifully presented village home.
On the ground floor is a charming sitting room with an open inglenook fireplace and bread oven whilst the dining room also has an inglenook fireplace (not in use) and bread oven. The light & airy kitchen/breakfast room has attractive fitted units and built-in appliances, a walk-in utility/boiler area and doors leading out to the garden. Also on this level is a double aspect study/3rd bedroom, a hall and cloakroom. Upstairs is a good-sized master bedroom with an en-suite shower room and a smaller double bedroom. Both bedrooms have fitted cupboards and magnificent far-reaching views over the garden and rooftops to the countryside of the Nadder Valley beyond. There is also a well-appointed family bathroom.

Outside
The property is aptly named with its absolutely delightful South facing garden which has been superbly landscaped and stocked with an interesting selection of flowers, shrubs and roses. A paved suntrap of a terrace by the kitchen makes for an ideal al fresco dining area looking out over lawns, established borders, a pretty ornamental pond, seating areas, specimen trees, productive apple and pear trees. There are also fruit and vegetable beds whilst a gravelled drive to the side provides ample parking.

Outbuildings
These consist of a timber studio with power, sink, work tops & shelves and is currently being used as a potter’s workshop and would be suitable for use as an office or garden room. There is also a greenhouse, garden shed, garage and adjoining carport.

Situation
The property is situated on a pretty lane in the heart of the popular Nadder Valley village of Dinton, an active rural community with a primary school, recreation ground, village hall, pub and various clubs. The National Trust owned Dinton Park allows free public access to lovely parkland and woodland walks. The larger nearby village of Tisbury has a good range of amenities, shops, a station with rail services to London (Waterloo) and is home to Messums Wiltshire, a contemporary arts centre. The small town of Wilton, the ancient capital of Wessex and famous for the stately home and landscaped gardens of Wilton House, is around 5 miles distant whilst the medieval cathedral city of Salisbury is just beyond and offers more comprehensive shopping, leisure, cultural facilities, a district hospital and station.
The region’s other principal towns including Andover, Bath, Blandford, Shaftesbury, Sherborne and Warminster are all accessible via the local road network as is the South Coast whilst the A303 provides the motorist with links to London, the West Country and the motorway network. Many families are drawn to South Wiltshire by the quality of rural life and the excellent choice of state and private schools situated in Salisbury and the surrounding area. There are regional airports at Bournemouth, Bristol and Southampton. A highly rated country house hotel, Howard’s House can be found in nearby Teffont Evias and there are several excellent dining pubs in the vicinity.
Set amidst the particularly attractive undulating countryside of the Nadder Valley, part of the Cranborne Chase and West Wiltshire Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Dinton is an excellent base from which to explore the many miles of local footpaths and bridleways and there are a variety of rural pursuits available including walking, riding, cycling and field sports. Sailing can be found at Shearwater near Warminster, racing is at Salisbury, Bath and Wincanton and golf at Tollard Royal, Warminster and Salisbury. There are many places of interest in the area such as the Longleat Estate, Old Wardour Castle, Stourhead Gardens, Fovant Badges and Stonehenge.
