Bought in 1995 as a new property and constructed of stone some of which came from the former building on the site, under a thatched and part tiled roof. Spilsbury Cottage is a delightful thatched cottage in a lovely position with spectacular views over the surrounding countryside. The property has clearly been built to a high standard with excellent ceiling heights and nicely proportioned accommodation. Great care has gone into the design of the property which has lightly timbered rooms, attractive open fireplace in the sitting room and large garage which could be integrated into the accommodation should a purchaser wish it. Other attributes worthy of mentioning include light and bright accommodation, a combination of stone, oak and clay tile flooring, oak doors and excellent ceiling heights. Spilsbury Cottage is approached from the lane up a gravelled drive leading to a car parking and turning area in front of the large double garage. The garden is principally to lawn with some mature trees including oak, willow, silver birch and conifers and has colourful flower and shrub borders on either side of the drive approaching the property. At the rear there is an area of wild garden and flower and shrub borders with roses, geraniums, ferns and hostas amongst others. There is a timber garden shed and near the entrance a timber office with power and light. Spilsbury Cottage occupies a quiet position on the northern fringe of the Nadder Valley village of Ansty. The village consists mainly of pretty period houses and cottages and is centered around the ''The Commandery', once the headquarters of the Knights of St John, which was re-built as a banqueting hall by Thomas Arundel in 1596. Also of interest is the Maypole once one of the highest in the country at 70ft, now somewhat reduced since the storm of 1993. Nearby Tisbury offers a wide range of facilities including shops, a bank, hotel, public houses, a leisure centre, a library, Messums, a new art space situated in the historic tithe barn, doctor and dentist's surgeries and a mainline railway station (London Waterloo). For more facilities there is Shaftesbury to the west and the Cathedral city of Salisbury to the east. The A303 lies some seven miles to the north, giving access to the South West and London, via the M3.
