1 Well Lane is a robust and handsome three bedroom detached period property built in 1869 of predominantly Gillingham red brick with buff brick diamont decorations and decorative brickwork to window arches  under a slate tiled roof.  The house has been much improved, updated and extended to an exceptionally high standard by the present owners to provide a comfortable and practical family home whilst retaining many of the original cottage features.  The extensions and refurbishments have been carried out in a  sympathetic manner which enhance the overall charm of the property and provide a generous kitchen/dining room with separate utility, lounge and small study, three good sized bedrooms, family bathroom and contemporary downstairs shower room all presented in immaculate order throughout.  There is also full planning permission for an additional downstairs room which could double as a garden room come guest room with French doors out to the garden.
The property enjoys a wonderful location in the much sought after Enmore Green area of Shaftesbury which is part of the conservation area and is a short walk to Shaftesbury town centre with its range of  independent shops, supermarkets, doctors and dentists.  The house sits in a private and tranquil enclosed garden and has a driveway and parking for two cars.  An early viewing is highly recommended to secure this fabulous period home.
