Property This detached house dates originally from the late eighteenth century and was built within the boundary of William Beckford’s Fonthill Abbey Estate. The property was extended in the 1960’s and, while some modernising has been carried out, it still requires a fair deal of improvement and possible extension (subject to the necessary consents). Location aside, the main joy of this property are the large and light rooms. Both the drawing and dining rooms are generous spaces with french doors spilling out onto the garden and all the bedrooms are of good sizes. The bathrooms have new fittings, but the kitchen is dated and ideally should be moved to create a very good family space.
The property has mainly oak strip flooring, decoration is muted and there is plenty of storage and bookshelves. A rear lobby and boiler room provide space for muddy boots and dogs, while the attached garage gives way into a lean-to store. Plans exist to re-model this end of the property to create a two storey extension, reposition rooms in the main house and add a detached timber garage with potential for an office above.
The house is a rarity. There is always a scarcity of well positioned properties in this particular area and the real draw here is that there is enormous scope to improve to individual taste and priorities.
Outside The propertyis positioned on a slightly elevated plot in about 0.5 acre of lovely gardens which have been much improved over recent years. The property is approached from the lane to a good pull in drive and parking area taking up the west side of the poperty. The lawn stretches around on two gentle levels, dotted with fruit and birch trees and separated by stone walling. Deep beds have been dug and planted with perennial shrubs and specimen trees, while a beech hedge borders the plot and provides a degree of privacy. A terrace area is well positioned to take advantage of the morning and southerly sun and is accessed directly from the drawing room and dining room.
Situation The house is situated in a wonderful rural position just outside the hamlet of Newtown, with far reaching westerly views over organic farmland and having the historic Fonthill woods and Abbey to the east. The area is most sought after, being set away from main roads, but within easy reach of the A303 and the main Waterloo line at Tisbury (1hr 50 mins). Immediate amenities include Pythouse Walled Garden and The Beckford Arms, while the villages of Semley and Hindon are also nearby.Tisbury itself is the thriving unofficial capital of the Cranbourne Chase & West Wiltshire Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and has amenities for most everyday needs, including shops, boutiques and professionals. Also close at hand are Shaftesbury, Gillingham and Warminster, while Salisbury and Bath provide cultural centres further afield.
The area is renowned for its clutch of very good schools, both state and private, while sport and leisure pursuits in the area include miles of rights of way for walking and riding, Golf at Rushmore, Tennis at Pythouse Club, and Village cricket teams.
