Full description

An exceptionally energy efficient home refurbished to extremely high standards and situated in an idyllic rural hamlet setting with lovely views, a large garden & separate office/studio.

An attractive country home that was originally a pair of estate workers’ cottages thought to date back to the 1850’s built in a mix of brick and local stone. Now with rendered external elevations under a clay tiled roof, in recent years it has been extended and comprehensively refurbished to an exacting standard by local craftsmen with particular emphasis on creating a well presented energy efficient home. This includes under floor heating to the ground floor, a high level of insulation, a heat recovery ventilation system, solar panels and an Extraflame programmable wood pellet fired boiler which is not only straight forward and inexpensive to run but under the Renewable Heat Incentive scheme, currently provides a quarterly income of around £350.

The beautifully presented accommodation on the ground floor comprises of a bright sitting room with folding glazed doors overlooking the garden and the countryside beyond, a dining hall with a study area and oak stairs to the first floor and a custom built kitchen/breakfast room with a Rangemaster cooker that includes an induction hob. There is also a utility room and shower/cloakroom. Upstairs there are four bedrooms including a master bedroom with lovely rural views and a well-appointed family bathroom. The property benefits from having access to super fast broadband and scope within permitted development to create an orangery style garden room extension.

A particular joy of the property are the lovely grounds of just over half an acre which have a South Easterly facing aspect. These consist of extensive areas of lawn, a stone paved terrace from which to enjoy views of fields and woods, established flower and shrub borders, a variety of fruit and ornamental trees, a willow screened fruit and vegetable garden, wooden shed, outside lighting, water and power and a wild flower area. There is also gravelled parking for several cars and an Outbuilding that includes a Garage with an automatic roller door and a sink and a large Office/Studio approached via an external spiral staircase ideal for use as a work facility, hobbies room or garden room.

The cottage is situated in an absolutely idyllic country location off a no-through lane in the small rural hamlet of Fonthill Gifford, once part of William Beckford’s Fonthill Abbey estate and home to the Beckford Arms, a highly rated dining pub. 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, Sherborne, Warminster and Wincanton as well as to the South Coast whilst the nearby A303 trunk road links with the M3 motorway making London accessible for the motorist.

The region is well known for having a wide choice of highly regarded schools in both the state and private sectors including Salisbury’s grammar schools, Port Regis, Clayesmore, Sandroyd, Bryanston, Bruton, Sherborne and St Mary’s amongst many others. The property is surrounded by the most attractive, gently undulating countryside of the Nadder valley, part of an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and perfect for a variety of rural pursuits such as walking, riding, cycling and fishing. There are golf courses at Tollard Royal, Salisbury and Warminster with racing at Bath, Salisbury and Wincanton and sailing at Shear Water near Warminster. There are many places of interest in the vicinity such as Old Wardour Castle, Stourhead Gardens, Salisbury Cathedral, Wilton House, the Longleat Estate, and the Fovant Badges.
