If location is a key factor when choosing a home, then Barkers Hill Cottage will not disappoint. Nestling in a small hamlet setting that forms part of the edge of the Donheads, the area and house are surrounded by verdant Wiltshire countryside. Its quiet location on a small country lane is shared with just a handful of large, individual country properties.
This fantastic home is approached across a generous driveway and landscaped front garden. Barkers Hill Cottage has been the subject of substantial improvements in recent years and the current owners have employed their considerable talent to produce a wonderful home, finished to a high standard and with superb attention to detail. The use of dual aspects in the majority of the main rooms along with high vaulted ceilings mean that the countryside is almost drawn into the living accommodation.
All this is complemented by outstanding rear gardens of just under quarter of an acre which border open fields, with paved terrace leading up to a wide deck that provides an absolutely stunning aspect across the valley and wonderful al fresco dining opportunities.
Donhead St Andrew lies just north-east of Shaftesbury, a Saxon hilltop town with commanding views over three counties. This part of south-west Wiltshire has always been regarded has having some of the regions most stunning countryside. The Donheads (St Mary and St Andrew) have a thriving community with many clubs and societies, two churches and an excellent pub, The Forester which has a Michelin Bib Gourmand award. An award winning village shop and a Post Office are nearby in Ludwell, while more extensive facilities are available in Shaftesbury with a range of shops, a delicatessen, supermarkets, together with a health centre, local hospital, library and arts centre. A more comprehensive range of facilities may be found in the Cathedral City of Salisbury to the east, while nearby Tisbury has a mainline railway station (London Waterloo). The A303, approximately 15 minutes to the north, gives access to the South West and London, via the M3. One of the major attractions is the proximity to some of the best independent schools in Southern England including Bryanston, Clayesmore, Hanford, Knighton House, Leweston, Millfield, Milton Abbey, Port Regis, Sandroyd, Sherborne Boys, Sherborne Girls and St Mary's Shaftesbury, to name few.
