Haystones is an attached house with rendered elevations under a slate roof. In the past the property has been successfully extended and now offers spacious accommodation in an elevated position with far reaching views. The accommodation is currently arranged with a drawing room at first floor level which opens out onto a balcony. Downstairs there is a dining hall, kitchen and sitting room together with a bedroom and bathroom. The property is now in need of updating, which could include the incorporation of the garage into the accommodation and the erection of a carport within the grounds (subject to the necessary planning consents). The property is approached from Lower Wincombe Lane up a tarmac drive culminating in a car parking and turning area, adjoining which is the large garage. In front of the property there is an attractive stone terrace and raised flower and shrub border. The majority of the garden is to the rear and is laid to lawn and flanked by rhododendrons. Haystones sits in a glorious rural position within the parish boundary of Donhead St Mary. The Donheads, St Mary and St Andrew have a thriving community with many clubs and societies, two churches and an excellent pub, The Forester. The highly acclaimed Ludwell stores is approximately two miles away while for most every day needs the Saxon hilltop market town of Shaftesbury has a good range shops, a boutique hotel, cafes, restaurants, niche retailers, banks, supermarket, a small hospital, library, health centre and an arts centre. More comprehensive 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 (London Waterloo) and the A303 lies some 8 miles to the North, giving access to the South West Country and London, via the M3.
