Of period origins and subsequently extended, Summer Pool Cottage is a stone cottage which is predominantly thatched in a quiet rural position with the benefit of a paddock of just under one acre. In total the gardens and land extend to about 1.2 acres. The accommodation is sensibly configured with a nicely proportioned sitting room, with French windows opening out onto a paved terrace. In addition, there is a study and separate dining room on the ground floor, while on the first floor there are two double bedrooms, one single and a family bathroom. Given that the property is not listed, (and subject to planning consent) there could be scope to open up the kitchen into the dining room and further extend the cottage both at ground and first floor levels. The property is approached off a small lane onto an area of hard standing flanked on one side by a single garage. The garden lies to the rear and is principally laid to lawn and slopes gently down to the brook. The rear garden has a paved terrace extending the lengthy of the rear elevation, and in part flanked by a raised flower border. The garden is flanked by tall hedging on all sides with a variety of mature trees leading down to the brook. There is a recently built summer house with a veranda with light and power. Summer Pool Cottage is quietly situated within this popular village which has a thriving community with many clubs and societies, two churches and an excellent pub, The Forester. For everyday needs, the Saxon hilltop market town of Shaftesbury has a good range of shops, a boutique hotel, markets, churches, a health centre, a dentist, a small hospital, a veterinary surgery and a 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.
