If stunning views and location are key factors when choosing a home, then High Views will not disappoint. Commanding a glorious elevated position on the peripheries of the much sought after village of Donhead St Andrew, the area and house are surrounded by verdant Wiltshire countryside.
The property is located in Donhead St. Andrew and along with Donhead St Mary has 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.
Its quiet location on a small country lane is shared with just a handful of individual country properties.
High Views has been the subject of substantial improvements in recent years creating a wonderful, deceptively spacious home, finished to a high standard and with superb attention to detail.
The versatile, well-appointed accommodation is both light and neutral, the sunny elevated position allows natural light to flood every room. Internally the home offers a wealth of flexible living accommodation to include a formal sitting room with a feature open fireplace, a stylish comprehensively fitted kitchen, expansive ground floor shower room and a useful utility/boot room. A room of particular note is the dining room that then opens out on two sides to the spectacular wrap around conservatory/sun room. The dining room has a feature fireplace and offers ultimate versatility when opened out to the sun room. This wonderful space perfectly captures the uninterrupted views beyond, a perfect stop to enjoy the vista beyond in all weathers and offering plentiful additional entertaining space. Completing the ground floor is a sizeable shower room. On the first floor there are three bedrooms, two of which are generous doubles, the third a sizeable single. The bedrooms are serviced by a modern family bathroom.
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 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.
This substantial home is complemented by the outstanding gardens that border open fields. The home has a newly created recessed parking area that has parking for multiple vehicles. A path then leads up to the home. The home is in a raised position so the front gardens are at a lower level. The lower terrace is laid to lawn and would be ideal for a kitchen garden. The upper level has been landscaped with ease of maintenance in mind. There are two decked areas, perfect for outdoor entertaining and dining, with the staggering views beyond. The garden then wraps to the side where there are several storage sheds. The rear garden is predominantly laid to lawn and backs directly onto neighbouring grazing land. There are contoured shrub and herbaceous borders offering further privacy.
