Property Summary

A pretty semi-detached former estate worker’s cottage with a good-sized garden, & attractive countryside views situated in a small rural hamlet.


136 Stop Street is a semi-detached former estate worker’s cottage thought to have been built in the mid 1850’s with mellow red brick external elevations and stone quoins under a tiled roof. The accommodation is arranged over two floors and includes on the ground level a sitting room with a fireplace and two store cupboards and a kitchen with access to both the front and rear. Upstairs are two bedrooms, a small 3rd bedroom/study and a bathroom.


A picket fenced paved area at the front leads to the particularly long southeast facing garden which backs onto fields and is mainly laid to lawn with flower and shrub borders, a variety of fruit, mature and ornamental trees, a copse and two garden stores.


The cottage is situated in an absolutely idyllic rural location off a no-through lane in the small hamlet of Fonthill Gifford, once part of William Beckford’s Fonthill Abbey estate and home to the Beckford Arms, a highly rated dining inn. Located between the villages of Hindon and Tisbury, there are many excellent day-to-day amenities close at hand including local shops, schools, doctors’ surgeries, churches, sports facilities and several good pubs as well as a station providing direct rail services to London (Waterloo). The hilltop Saxon town of Shaftesbury is around nine miles away and has a wider choice of shops as well as being home to the famous steeply cobbled street of Gold Hill whilst the medieval cathedral city of Salisbury is fifteen miles distant. The local road network gives ready access to the other main towns in the region including Bath, Blandford, Warminster and Wincanton as well as to the South Coast and the nearby A303 trunk road which links with the M3 motorway making London accessible for the motorist.
