Built by a reputable local builder of natural stone under a clay tiled roof, Trade Winds occupies a fine site with splendid southerly views over the Blackmore Vale. The accommodation is sensibly configured with large well-proportioned rooms throughout and a high standard of finish which is self-evident. The kitchen is particularly well fitted with light base units, a Miele dishwasher, Miele integrated coffee machine, electric Aga and granite worktops. There is an emphasis on thermal efficiency with a ground source heat pump and photovoltaics situated on the triple garage (fitted in 2011/12) and which provide an income for the foreseeable future. Other attributes include an oak framed porch and oak floors throughout the majority of the ground floor. The property is approached from the lane through double timber gates onto a gravelled car parking and turning area with a single timber garage with store. Through a second set of gates, a gravelled drive leads to the rear of the property with a set of triple garages and a lean-to greenhouse. The garden at the rear is principally to lawn and is flanked by a well-stocked flower and shrub border, with a raised terrace adjoining the garden room with a lavender border. A timber gate leads from the gravelled driveway into the paddock with an area of orchard, planted with soft fruit trees including apple, plum and pear, and which is bordered by hedging on three sides and post and rail fencing. Stour Row is a small village lying just to the west of Shaftesbury on the edge of the Blackmore Vale. Shaftesbury has an excellent range of facilities including cafes, restaurants, niche retailers, a boutique hotel, banks, a small hospital, a library, a health centre and an arts centre.. In nearby Gillingham there is a Waitrose as well as a mainline railway station (London Waterloo); there are a wider range of facilities in Sherborne, Bath and Salisbury, all within easy motoring distance. The A303 lies some eleven miles to the north giving access to the south west and London, via the M3.
