Kingfishers was built in the 1970s and is beautifully presented with light, bright and spacious accommodation. The present owners have undertaken an extensive program of improvement which has included the reorganisation of the sitting room which is now spacious and opens on to a large terrace. The kitchen has been refitted with granite worktops, induction hob and double oven, and both the en-suite shower room and bathroom are well appointed. The living room, kitchen and utility room have stone flooring and the hall engineered oak. The three bedrooms all have fitted wardrobes and the fourth bedroom easily doubles up as a study. The property is approached from the lane over a small shared bridge over the River Nadder . The drive leads to a large parking and turning area with adjoining double garage. There is a large lawn with weeping willow. To the side of the property there is a large stone terrace edged with planting and to the rear stone steps lead to a lawn with colourful rose and shrub borders. There is a further lawned area with young saplings and the garden is bounded by hedging. Kingfishers is set well back in a quiet lane on the edge of the village of Donhead St Mary. The village has a church and there is an excellent pub in neighbouring Donhead St Andrew. The nearby village of Ludwell has a highly acclaimed shop/post office, together with a butchers, and for more extensive requirements there is the hilltop Saxon town of Shaftesbury which has a wide range of facilities including niche retailers, cafes and supermarket, together with a health centre, small hospital, a library and an arts centre. More comprehensive facilities can be found in Sherborne and the cathedral city of Salisbury. There is a mainline railway station at Tisbury (London Waterloo) and the A303 lies some six miles to the north giving access to the South West and London, via the M3.
