Superb contemporary country house set in the Tarrant Valley


Virage is set in a quiet country lane, well away from main roads and traffic noise in the beautiful Tarrant Valley. The hamlet of Stubhampton is located about a mile from the village of Tarrant Gunville which has a farm shop, a village hall and a parish church. The market town of Blandford Forum, the City of Salisbury and coastal towns of Poole and Bournemouth are all easily accessible by road, with the towns of Blandford Forum, Wimborne Minster and Salisbury providing a superb variety of shopping, educational and recreational facilities. Communications in the area include a mainline railway service from Salisbury or Tisbury to London Waterloo and the A303 can be joined to the north of Shaftesbury. There are a number of good independent schools in the area including Bryanston, Clayesmore, Sandroyd, Canford, Knighton House and Hanford with sporting facilities including horse racing at Salisbury and Bath, golf at Rushmore and water sports can be enjoyed along the Dorset coastline to the south at Weymouth Bay and Poole Harbour.


Virage is an outstanding, contemporary, five bedroom detached country house in a delightful rural location, with fabulous views. It has been built to a particularly high specification, with great attention to detail. Virage offers spacious living accommodation over 3800 square feet, arranged over two floors, with numerous full height glass screens taking advantage of the stunning views over the surrounding countryside. The house is traditionally built of cavity construction, with rendered Purbeck stone and cedar elevations, grey powder-coated aluminium double glazed
windows and exterior doors, a natural slate roof and a stone chimney.

Features include Calor gas under floor heating (with sunken tanks,) LED downlighters throughout, oak internal doors with stainless steel fittings and wide oak boarded flooring to principal areas of the ground floor. A particular feature is the magnificent kitchen/family room which has a walk-in larder, high gloss units, quartz work surfaces and a range of built-in appliances. A solid oak and stainless steel staircase leads to a semi-galleried landing with full height glass screens. The spacious master bedroom has a large dressing room which leads to an en suite bath/shower room with twin basins.

Virage is approached via hardwood double gates and a tarmac driveway which leads into a stoned courtyard. The gardens, which surround the house, are enclosed by post-and-rail, post-and-wire and close boarded fencing. There are extensive sandstone terraces and pathways and a retaining wall with beds ideal for planting.
