An elegant period house with huge potential, situated in an elevated position, in the sought-after village of Donhead St Mary.
A Handsome stone and brick village house under a clay tile roof, with origins dating back to the 17th century and the benefit of Victorian additions.
The house is approached via a gravel driveway, directly opposite the ancient St Mary's Church.
The entrance hall, with tongue and groove panelling, leads to the sitting room which has the benefit of an open fireplace. On the opposite side of the hall is the kitchen, boasting a range of bespoke painted wooden units, wooden worktops and a fitted double oven and hob. There is a well-proportioned dining room with a glass door into the existing wooden lean-to, which looks out over the pretty rear garden.
Opposite the top of the stairs is the bathroom. The triple-aspect principal bedroom includes beautiful views over the south facing garden and, to the north, over the church and beyond towards Wardour. This room has a large walk-in cupboard, with a window, that has the potential to be converted into an en suite WC and basin. Opposite is a second double bedroom, again with views over both the garden and the church. There are two additional bedrooms, one with far-reaching views over the surrounding countryside.
Unusually, there is a substantial cellar. This was integral to the property when it was originally built as a farmhouse. The cattle were kept in the cellar, their body heat being used to warm up the house above. There is a door to the garden from the cellar that, in the past, gave the cattle access to the fields.
Internally the cellar is approached via wooden stairs from the entrance hall.
