Property Summary

A rare opportunity to purchase a fine example of a Victorian town house located close to Shaftesbury Town Centre, that has been extended in a contemporary and attractive fashion.

The North Dorset Saxon hilltop market town of Shaftesbury is famed for the steep cobbled street of Gold Hill, which remains a popular and historic attraction. The town’s rich history reaches back to King Alfred, who founded a nunnery there in 888. Shaftesbury is a delightful, community-oriented town with an attractive and bustling high street. Everyday requirements are catered for by a farmers market, cafés and various retail shops; there is a veterinary practice and good cottage hospital.

Shaftesbury is well connected by road to Gillingham, Salisbury, Sherborne, Warminster and Yeovil, as well as to the south coast. Its proximity to the A303 makes London accessible for the motorist.

Railway stations at Gillingham (4.5 miles) and Tisbury (8 miles) offer frequent, mainline services to London (Waterloo) and the west country. The area’s wide appeal to families is enhanced by the choice of excellent local state and independent schools, which include Shaftesbury, Port Regis, Sherborne, Gillingham and Bryanston. Shaftesbury offers tranquil, glorious countryside with miles of public footpaths and bridleways, and is nestled among a host of traditionally English villages to explore in Blackmore Vale, Cranborne Chase and Wiltshire Downs.

Two of the four bedrooms are located on the first floor with the modern sash windows bringing plentiful natural light into the rooms whilst the decorate fireplace in the front bedroom makes for a delightful feature.
