A great opportunity to purchase a fabulous detached family home with three double bedrooms, three reception rooms and sitting on half an acre of land with its own magical woodland. The property is located where town and country start to merge on the fringe of the hilltop town of Shaftesbury. The town has a wonderful range of independent shops and chain stores, doctor and dentist surgeries, schooling for all ages and is well known for its arts and crafts and entertainment venues. Five miles away in Gillingham, there is a mainline train station that serves London Waterloo and Exeter St. David's.

The property dates to the early 1930s, with the land being originally purchased from Lord Stalbridge in 1932 and the house being completed in around 1934. This is only the second time that the property has been brought to the market, having been the much loved and enjoyed home of our sellers for the last forty years. During this time it has been very well maintained and kept in line with changing trends. A garden room has been added to take full advantage of views over the grounds and in recent years, both the kitchen and bathroom have been replaced with stylish contemporary fixtures. The property offers ample space for comfortable living with the option to extend creating additional living space to suit your needs. There is also the potential for open fires or wood burners, adding to the character and warmth of this delightful home. (Chimneys are currently capped).

Outside, the beautifully landscaped garden provide a peaceful retreat or secure play area for children and pets and a perfect spot for outdoor gatherings with family and friends. The enchanting woodland is a great place for dens and being one with nature.

It is vital to view this home to truly appreciate everything that it offers - a unique property that won't be available for long. Don't miss out on the chance to be the next owner.
