About this property

  • The delightful faded grandeur of The Chantry, with it's captivating gardens, lend this property a particular charm. The house offers huge potential to renovate and update, whilst still preserving the wealth of period detail it retains.

A handsome drawing room, with high ceilings and wooden floor-boards, has an open fire with a stone hearth and working shutters. The dining room opposite, also with high-ceilings, wooden floor-boards, fireplace and shutters, benefits from wood panelling. From the far end of the hall, a pretty glazed arched door leads into the library. This is a particularly impressive and stylish double-height room, with a large curved window on the west elevation and a circular feature window. A half-glazed stable-door opens onto the charming sheltered courtyard.

    The kitchen/breakfast room, with oil-fired Rayburn, has flagstone floors and fitted wooden cupboards. Completing the ground floor is a rear hall/boot room, with flagstone floor, leading from the kitchen out into the courtyard, and a cloakroom with quarry tiled floor. A spacious wine cellar sits below the dining room.

    The first floor comprises a principal bedroom of capacious proportions, with a fireplace, wooden floor-boards and far-reaching views, over the roof-tops of Tisbury, to the countryside beyond. It also has an en suite bathroom.

    The second bedroom, of equal proportions, has a grand fireplace. A family shower room completes this floor. The second flight of stairs leads up to a landing, from which one can access two double attic bedrooms of reasonable proportions and benefitting from long views over the village and beyond.

    Outside - Directly behind the house nestles a sheltered and utterly private cobbled stone courtyard with a wisteria covered loggia. Accessible from this courtyard are two traditional garden stores and a gardener's loo.

    Large double gates open from the road onto the gravel driveway, leading to parking for several cars in front of the double garage. An ornate wrought-iron gate takes you through to the enchanting gardens. Part-walled and laid primarily to lawn, stone pathways bordered with lavender, yew and box topiary take you through to a stone well/pond with a fountain, sheltered seating areas and through to a garden orangery. Mature trees offer dappled shade.
