The gardens are partly walled and offer an extremely high degree of privacy, as they back onto the Moot. The property enjoys a superb position at the heart of the centre of Downton and offers fabulous accommodation for a family as well as easy access to all the village has to offer, including the very highly regarded Downton Primary School which was in recent years featured as one of the best primary schools in the UK by The Tatler.


30 High Street stands in the heart of Downton which is a thriving and long-standing community with a strong sense of identity. There are good local facilities in the village which include shops, doctors, dentist, tennis club, the Borough Cafe', churches, schools, and public houses, as well as the famous Cuckoo Fair held each May.

Communication links are excellent, with strong rail links to London Waterloo via Salisbury (around 83 minutes) or Southampton Airport Parkway (68 minutes). There is easy access to the main regional centres of Salisbury and the B3078 gives access to the M27 and thus opening up Southampton and the M3 corridor. The wide ranging opportunities of the New Forest National Park are only two miles from the village.

There is first class schooling in the village with its own primary (OFSTED Outstanding) and secondary school, indeed the primary school has in recent years been recommended by The Tatler as one of the top ten best schools in the UK. There are also nearby independent preparatory schools such as Forres Sandle Manor, Chafyn Grove, Godolphin, the Salisbury Cathedral School and Leaden Hall. At senior level there is Canford, Godolphin, Winchester College, St Swithun's, Sherborne, Bryanston and Clayesmore. In the state sector, Salisbury has retained the grammar school model and these score very highly in the national league tables.


The rear gardens are south facing and back onto the Moot, and thus offer a high degree of privacy. There is a paved terrace adjacent to the property which affords excellent entertaining space, the remainder of the gardens are mainly laid to lawn with pretty flower and shrub borders, with the whole being partly walled. In addition there is a garden shed.
