THE PROPERTY

Standing in an elevated position, East Lynn is an end of terrace green sandstone property under a tiled roof with a spectacular outlook over the surrounding countryside. The accommodation is sensibly configured with nicely proportioned rooms all of which make the most of its wonderful outlook. The dining room/conservatory was added in the 1990's and has sufficient footings to enable extending at first floor level which would significantly enhance the accommodation. Over the years East Lynn has been carefully modernised and now offers versatile and adaptable accommodation. East Lynn is accessed off the lane onto the drive with large car parking and turning area. There is a small gravelled front garden while the majority lies to the rear and is principally to lawn with a paved terrace, productive vegetable garden with raised beds, and a wide variety of fruit trees including figs, apricots, peaches and blueberries. There is a detached summerhouse, fully insulated with light and power, a sauna and garden store together with a variety of mature shrubs and trees. Gutch Common lies in an elevated position above the village of Semley, some three miles to the north east of Shaftesbury. The common land is designated S.S.S.I. and is currently managed by English Nature. Semley has a popular primary school, an excellent community run village shop and café, a public house and a church. The Saxon hilltop town of Shaftesbury has a wide range of facilities including a good variety of shops, churches, a newly refurbished boutique hotel, doctors and dentist surgeries, a library, primary and secondary schools, a small hospital and an arts centre. For more sophisticated requirements there is the cathedral city of Salisbury, with its theatre and renowned annual festival to the east and the Georgian spa town of Bath to the north. There is a mainline railway station at nearby Tisbury (London Waterloo - approx 1hr 50 min) and the A303 lies about six miles to the north, giving access to the south west and London, via the M3.
