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 region’s 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 including a range of shops, a delicatessen, supermarkets, 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 in about 1 hour 50 minutes). 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.
The property is situated at the heart of the village, opposite the renowned thatched inn The Forester. The house is set back from the road behind a tarmac driveway with parking for several vehicles, with additional parking available within a double garage. A side door gives access to the rear garden which amounts to just over 2/3 of an acre and mostly laid to lawn, with a variety of mature borders and a selection of fruit trees arranged as a small orchard. Keen gardeners will also appreciate the well-established vegetable gardens and two greenhouses. The very end of the garden overlooks the River Nadder and countryside beyond. A useful garden shed is located nearby.
