Description

An attractive detached period cottage situated on the edge of the renowned Donheads with character features & a spectacular contemporary
‘hub-of-the-house’ kitchen/living space

Property
A detached wisteria clad period cottage with later additions built with a mix of painted rendered external elevations under a thatched roof. The property has been extended and subject to a number of alterations and improvements over the years although the older parts still retain character features. In recent times a striking and spacious single storey extension overlooking the garden has been added which enjoys a lovely light and airy feel and is the focus of the cottage’s living space with its open plan stylish kitchen, dining and family areas.
The rest of the accommodation offers a good deal of versatility as to how it can be utilised and on the ground floor includes an entrance hall, charming sitting room with  an inglenook fireplace, study and a bedroom (formerly a reception room). There is also a shower room on this level as well as a lobby/storage area, larder cupboard and a utility/storeroom. Upstairs is a good-sized walk-through bedroom, two further bedrooms and a well-appointed bathroom.

Outside
The property is approached via a gravelled drive which provides ample parking and opens out to an area of garden and a wooden outbuilding with potential to be adapted for use as a studio, garden room or garage. The front garden leads to the main garden which is on the Southwest side of the cottage and has a generous timber decked seating area with raised beds and opens out to an area of lawn, flower & shrub borders, vegetable garden, ornamental and fruit trees and a garden shed.

Situation

The property is situated on the edge of the much sought-after village of Donhead St Mary where it meets the neighbouring village of Ludwell with an award-winning village shop, butchers, primary school and pub all close at hand whilst Donhead St Andrew has an excellent dining inn, The Forester. The larger village of Tisbury offers a range of independent shops and amenities including a sports/community centre, doctors’ and dental surgeries, garage, vets, a station with direct rail services to London (Waterloo) and is home to Messums Wiltshire, a contemporary arts centre housed in an ancient thatched tithe barn.
The Saxon hilltop market town of Shaftesbury is just 2.5 miles away and has a good choice of shops, supermarket, restaurants, secondary school, cottage hospital and is famous for the picturesque, steeply cobbled street of Gold Hill. The medieval cathedral city of Salisbury has more comprehensive shopping, arts & leisure facilities and a district hospital. The area’s other principal towns including Bath, Blandford, Gillingham, Sherborne and Warminster are all linked via the local road network as is the South Coast whilst the West Country, London and the motorway network are accessible via the A303/M3. Many families are drawn to South Wiltshire by the choice and quality of the area’s state and private schools.
Set close to where the Nadder Valley meets the Cranborne Chase in an attractive stretch of undulating countryside within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Donhead St Mary is an excellent base from which to explore 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 several excellent dining pubs in the vicinity as well as many places of interest such as the Longleat Estate, Old Wardour Castle, Stourhead Gardens, Wilton House and the Fovant Badges.
