About this property

TENURE: Freehold

A truly glorious detached cottage on a no-through country lane within the delightful hamlet of Pentridge, idyllically nestled in the heart of Cranborne Chase. The cottage has been extensively updated in recent years and provides in excess of 1600 sq. ft. of light and airy accommodation with stunning character features throughout. The setting provides the ideal lifestyle compromise between rural country living and having access to nearby amenities.

On the ground floor there is a welcoming entrance hall opening to a formal sitting room with wood-burning stove. The snug provides a flexible space for a second reception room. Beyond is the 'heart of the home' kitchen/dining room. The room is particularly notable for its striking AGA within a brick chimney breast and attractive wall and base units under butcher block work surfaces. There is space for a sizeable dining set with French doors leading to the garden. Completing the ground floor accommodation is a useful utility room and family shower room. On the first floor there are four double bedrooms, with one of the larger rooms accessed by a smaller room, making a great option for a dressing area, nursery or study. A family bathroom concludes the accommodation.

Located in an Area of Outstanding Beauty, Pentridge is a lovely countryside hamlet surrounded by the rolling open landscape of the Cranborne Chase perfect for enjoying rural pursuits such as walking, riding, cycling and fishing, and recently granted International Dark Skies status. The cottage is particularly well situated for country walks, with a public footpath opposite leading up to Penbury Knoll. The Dorset Cursus runs parallel to the village. The historic cathedral city of Salisbury is found 11 miles to the north east and has a variety of regionally recognised retail, cultural and educational establishments, as well as a range of award-winning restaurants and bars. There is a great selection of schools in the area including both Bishops & South Wilts Grammar Schools, Salisbury Cathedral School, Chafyn Grove, Leehurst Swan, Godolphin School, Port Regis and Sandroyd. There are great road links with the A303 giving access to the M3 and London. Salisbury train station also offers direct links to London Waterloo (83 minutes).

The property is accessed from the no-through lane via a block-paved driveway and through a wooden five-bar gate leading to a generous area providing parking for numerous vehicles. Further parking is available within a detached double garage. The gardens are a particular feature being of a good size and surrounding the house on all sides. The gardens are mainly laid to lawn and enclosed by wooden panel fencing, bordered by specimen trees and mature shrubs whilst boasting lovely grassland views to the front. To the rear there is a patio, raised border and a wooden shed.
