Dating from 1896 the Firs is an imposing and substantial Victorian detached house situated in an elevated position set well back from the A30. Built principally of green sandstone with part rendered elevations under a slate roof, The Firs has sensibly configured accommodation with nicely proportioned rooms with good ceiling heights. Although in need of modernising, attributes worthy of particular mention include large sash windows, light and bright accommodation and a lovely outlook over the surrounding countryside. The property is approached off the A30 up a short tarmac drive culminating in a car port. The garden lies principally to the front, with an area of stone terracing running along the width of the facade which leads onto a lawned area flanked by well stocked flower and shrub borders. There is a further area of garden on the other side of the road which is principally to lawn with a separate vegetable garden with a timber shed and leads down to Cats Hill Lane. The Firs is situated in Ludwell within walking distance of the local village shop, butchers and pub. The Donhead's, (St Andrew and St Mary) are nearby with an active community with many clubs and societies, two churches and another excellent pub, The Forester. Otherwise for every day needs, the Saxon hilltop market town of Shaftesbury has a good range of shops, a boutique hotel, markets, churches, a health centre, dentist, a small hospital, veterinary surgery, library and arts centre. For more sophisticated shopping and recreational facilities there is the Cathedral city of Salisbury to the east and Bath to the north west. Nearby Tisbury has a mainline railway station with services to London Waterloo and the A303, approximately 6 miles to the north, gives access to the south west and London via the M3.
