Description

A most attractive period home refurbished & extended to a particularly high standard situated in the highly sought-after Donheads with beautifully presented versatile accommodation & a delightful streamside garden.

Property
Originally built as an estate workers cottage, possibly dating back to the 18th Century, for the neighbouring Donhead Hall, Lillies Green Cottage is a very pretty property with stone fronted external elevations to the front under a clay tiled roof. Over the last 30 years or so it has been comprehensively refurbished and extended to a very high standard to create a comfortable home with a sympathetic blend of period character and modern fittings.
The beautifully presented accommodation is arranged over two levels and offers versatility as to how it can be enjoyed. On the ground floor this includes a charming sitting room that leads to the spacious drawing/music room, part of which was originally a barn with a high vaulted ceiling whilst the remainder of the room forms part of an extension with a lovely outlook over the garden and parkland beyond.
The dining room has a wooden beamed ceiling, a traditional inglenook fireplace and accesses the superbly fitted, contemporary style kitchen/breakfast room by Country Kitchens which is equipped with top name appliances. There is also a luxuriously fitted shower/cloakroom on this level and a utility room. Upstairs there are four bedrooms including a master bedroom suite with a vaulted ceiling and a floor-to-ceiling window with lovely views to the rear. The family bathroom is well-appointed and there is a lobby area with a laundry cupboard.

Outside
The property has delightful gardens which at the front comprises a walled lawn with flower borders, a stone paved area and a gravelled drive providing off street parking and leading to the detached garage. The rear garden has been beautifully landscaped and is an absolute delight with its well-kept lawn gently sloping down to a stream, well stocked flower and shrub borders and views from the stone paved terrace towards the parkland of Donhead Hall. There is also a variety of ornamental trees, gravelled paths, attractively designed paved seating area and a pretty summer house that could be adapted for use as a studio or work room.

Situation
The property is pleasantly situated in the pretty and much sought-after village of Donhead St Mary which is surrounded by beautiful undulating countryside. The neighbouring village of Donhead St Andrew has an excellent dining inn, The Forester whilst Ludwell has an award-winning village shop, butchers, primary school and pub. 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 has a good choice of shops, a supermarket, restaurants, a 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 by the A303/M3. Many families are drawn to South Wiltshire by the choice and quality of the area’s state and private schools.
Set amidst the famously pretty countryside of the Nadder Valley, part of the Cranborne Chase and West Wiltshire Downs 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 is 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.
