Property description

Tenure: Freehold

This much-loved family home offers a wealth of charm and character, with brick elevations under a partially thatched roof. The original thatched part of the home was built in the 17th century and later substantially extended twice, first in the 1950s and later in the 1980s to create a grand home of over 3800 sq. ft. The combination of modern and traditional are beautifully married internally to create a fabulous home with a number of characterful accents, including exposed beams, built-in cabinetry, picture rails and lead light windows, with more modern flooring, fixtures and fitting providing a contemporary twist. With its high ceilings, generous proportions and ample outside space, this is the perfect home for raising a family, with further space for guests and for at-home entertaining. The house has the added benefit of being well presented internally and, with its neutral décor, offers easy personalisation by the incoming purchaser.

The accommodation is arranged over two floors and has excellent flow, with the ground floor having a choice of reception spaces. The internal hallway leads to a larger entrance space and a useful cloakroom with w.c. and space for coats and shoes. There is also internal access to the garage, utility store and boiler room. The living accommodation comprises a snug with gas real flame fire, a kitchen/breakfast room, L-shaped sitting room and glazed conservatory overlooking the garden. Upstairs there is a study along with five double bedrooms, several with built-in storage, and three bath/shower rooms.

The property is situated on the southern fringes of the village and is surrounded by attractive countryside set in 0.6 acre grounds, with lovely mature gardens to the rear. The front of the house is set back from the road behind a good-size gravel driveway, which has off-street parking for several vehicles and access to an internal double garage. The rear garden is south-west facing and features a paved patio inset with a feature ‘well’, which is ideal for outdoor entertaining, with steps leading up to a lawn enclosed by mature hedges. The garden features a number of well-established plants including a 200-year-old oak tree, with views down to the river Nadder. These are best enjoyed from the elevated timber terrace.


The pretty village of Donhead St Mary is situated between Tisbury, which has independent shops and a mainline station to Waterloo (services in 100 minutes), and the historic Saxon hilltop town of Shaftesbury with its excellent shopping, health centre, library and a choice of restaurants, pubs and galleries. The area has a thriving community feel and offers many clubs and societies. This part of south-west Wiltshire has always been regarded has having some of the region’s most stunning countryside. The A303, approximately 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.
