An attractive period cottage situated on the edge of a rural hamlet on the Wiltshire/Dorset border with pretty gardens & outbuildings

Property
A pretty, detached period cottage that is not Listed and is located in a pleasant, sheltered semi-rural setting. Built with local stone external elevations under a thatched roof, the property has been sympathetically improved, altered and extended in modern times with great care taken to retain, and indeed, enhance the original character. This includes the retention of features such as wooden ceilings beams, wooden window seats and inglenook fireplaces resulting in the creation of a charming country home.
The well-presented accommodation lends itself to be utilised in a variety of ways. On the ground floor the three reception rooms include a sitting room, a family room/library and a cosy dining room with a wood burner which is presently being enjoyed as a snug. The hub-of-the-house farmhouse style kitchen/breakfast room has attractive wooden units and an oil-fired Aga. There is also a utility/boot room, storeroom, rear hall and cloakroom on this level. Two staircases lead to the first floor with one opening out to a landing/reading area and accessing the charming principal bedroom, a well-appointed bathroom and a bedroom which could be used as a dressing room or study. There is also an elegant guest bedroom, two further bedrooms and a second bathroom.

Outbuildings
The cottage benefits from having a range of outbuildings which include a wooden chalet style garden room ideal for use as a studio, hobbies room or home office. The stable block comprises three loose boxes, a tack room and has power and water. There is also a double garage with twin doors, a green house and garden shed.

Outside
The grounds extend to just over half an acre and are arranged on different levels. These include delightful gardens bordered by a mix of mature trees, hedging and shrubs giving a degree of privacy and are mainly laid to lawn with flower and shrub borders with a sheltered paved courtyard to the rear of the cottage. A further area of garden by the stables includes a chicken run whilst to the front of the garage is an area of parking for 3-4 cars.

Situation
The property is situated off a quiet country lane on the edge of a small rural hamlet. The Green is located on a ridge to the north-west of the village of East Knoyle and consists of a community of houses and cottages with a popular pub, The Fox and Hounds from where there are splendid far-reaching views over the Blackmore Vale. East Knoyle is a vibrant village with good local facilities including a community run village shop/post office, village hall, parish church and playground.
The North Dorset Saxon hilltop market town of Shaftesbury has a range of independent shops, supermarkets, eateries, a secondary school, cottage hospital and is famous for the picturesque steep cobbled street of Gold Hill. Gillingham also offers a choice of supermarkets and stores as well as a respected secondary school, sports centre and railway station with direct rail services to London (Waterloo) and the West Country as does the nearby village of Tisbury. The local road network gives ready access to the other main towns in the area including Bath, Blandford, Salisbury, Sherborne, Warminster and Wincanton as well as to the South Coast whilst the A303 trunk road linking with the M3 motorway, makes London accessible for the motorist.
Located within the Cranborne Chase National Landscape where the Nadder Valley, West Wiltshire Downs and the Blackmore Vale all meet, the area is an ideal base from which to explore the beautiful surrounding countryside and for a variety of rural pursuits such as walking, riding and cycling as well as traditional field sports. There are golf courses at Salisbury, Sherborne, Tollard Royal, Warminster and Wincanton with racing at Bath, Salisbury and Wincanton and sailing at Shearwater near Warminster. There are many places of interest to visit in the locality such as Old Wardour Castle, the Longleat Estate, Sherborne Castle, Stourhead Gardens, Wilton House and the Fovant Badges
