Full description

A superbly refurbished country home with beautifully presented versatile accommodation and a good-sized garden situated in a pretty village in the lovely Nadder Valley.

The property is thought to have originally been a chapel or religious meeting place, possibly once known as St John the Evangelist serving the local Roman Catholic residents until its closure in the early 1960’s. Built of stone external elevations under a tiled roof and extended twice in the 1970’s, the property has for some years been enjoyed as a good-sized domestic residence. Since 2009 this lovely house has been comprehensively modernised, carefully altered and refurbished to a particularly high standard so as to create a wonderful family home.

The beautifully presented accommodation is arranged over two floors and includes on the ground level; a double aspect drawing room, a fabulous kitchen/dining room fitted with a comprehensive range of units, granite work surfaces and equipped with mainly Siemens appliances, family/games room and a study/office with a conservatory/plant room off it that could be adapted as a garden room. There are also two halls, a cloakroom and utility/boiler room. The upstairs is arranged in two sections served by separate staircases, one leading to an excellent master suite comprising of a spacious bedroom with lovely rural views, luxuriously appointed bathroom and a dressing room which could be converted to a 5th bedroom. The other first floor level has three double bedrooms, one of which has an en-suite shower room, and a stylish family bathroom.

The extensive grounds amount to around 0.6 of an acre and are approached by a sweeping graveled drive to an area of parking adjoining a wide paved terrace with an ornamental pond and flower borders. Steps lead up to a large banked lawn interspersed with mature shrubs and a variety of deciduous trees and on to an area with raised vegetable beds, a petanque terrain and a good-sized garden shed/store. There is also a wood store and a fenced off bin/oil storage tank area.

The house is located off a lane running through the highly desirable and historic village of Ansty which was founded by the Order of Knights Hospitaller of St John of Jerusalem in the early 1200’s and is situated in the heart of the Nadder Valley, part of an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The village is known for its pretty pond, 50 foot high maypole, manor house and ‘Commandery’, an imposing stone barn thought to have originally been a banqueting house. Ansty has a 13th Century church and there is an award winning farm shop close by. The larger village of Tisbury is just two miles away and has excellent day-to-day shopping facilities, a post office, school, doctor’s and dental surgeries, sports centre, garage, tearooms and a station with direct rail services to London (Waterloo) and the West Country. There are several very good country pubs nearby as well as places of interest such as Old Wardour Castle, Wilton House and the Fovant Badges.

Ansty is located just off the A30 between the hilltop Saxon town of Shaftesbury and the medieval cathedral city of Salisbury, both of which offer a wide choice of amenities. The local road network gives ready access to the other main towns in the region including Bath, Blandford, Sherborne and Warminster as well as to the South Coast whilst the A303 trunk road linking with the M3 makes London accessible for the motorist. The region is well known for having a number of highly regarded schools in both the state and private sectors including Port Regis, Clayesmore, Sandroyd, Bryanston, Bruton and St Mary’s amongst others. The property is surrounded by the lovely rolling countryside of South Wiltshire which is ideal for a variety of rural pursuits such as walking, riding, cycling and fishing.
