Listed Grade II, Number 37 is a pretty green sandstone terraced cottage on two floors, with a further attic room and reputedly dating from the early to mid-19th Century. It has recently been refurbished; attributes worthy of particular mention include a well fitted kitchen with tiled floors, a nicely proportioned sitting room and at first floor level a double bedroom with shower room. In addition, there is a vaulted attic room (accessed from the bedroom) which could be put to a variety of uses. The cottage is approached off St James through a wrought iron gate with railings on either side which separate The Pump Yard from the street. The property is situated on the right of this pretty grass and gravelled courtyard. There is a private south facing landscaped garden which is accessed from the end of the Pump Yard via a small path. 37 St James Street is to be found in a pretty courtyard on the north side of St James Street, which itself runs east - west on the southern slopes of Shaftesbury. The gated ''Pump Yard' is a very popular enclave on this much sought-after street. The Saxon hilltop town of Shaftesbury has an excellent range of facilities, including cafes, restaurants, niche retailers, hotels, banks, a small hospital, a library, a health centre and an arts centre. A more comprehensive range of facilities can be found in the Cathedral city of Salisbury to the east, the Georgian spa town of Bath to the north and Sherborne to the west. There are mainline railway stations at both Gillingham and Tisbury offering a direct service to London Waterloo. The A303 lies some 7 miles to the North, giving access to the West Country and London, via the M3.
