THE PROPERTY

Completed in 2014, Tithe House has delightful views over unspoilt countryside, and has attractive stone and flint elevations under a clay tiled roof. Built to a high specification, Tithe House is thermally efficient with an electric heat pump and pressurized water system. The accommodation is expansive with nicely proportioned rooms with good ceiling heights. Attributes worthy of particular attention include the well equipped kitchen with stone worktops which leads into a magnificent vaulted dining room, the use of natural stone and wood stripped floors, oak panelled doors, and high quality bath and shower room fittings. In addition, there is a basement room accessed from a trap in the hall providing useful storage. It also has the benefit of a Premier Building Guarantee (expiring in July 2025) Tithe House is approached over a shared driveway leading to a gravelled car parking area adjoining a double garage with electric up and over doors. The gardens lie to the rear, side and front of the property and are flanked by hornbeam hedging. The garden is private, and mainly to lawn with colourful flower and shrub borders. There is a lovely outlook over the village cricket ground towards Hambledon Hill. Shroton lies midway between Shaftesbury and Blandford Forum. It is a pretty and popular village with highly regarded pub, The Cricketers, a large village green and a children's playground. The neighbouring village of Iwerne Minster has a good range of everyday facilities, including an excellent post office/village store, a pub, a children's playground and a sports centre at Clayesmore School. For a wider range of facilities there is the Saxon hilltop town of Shaftesbury to the north, and the Georgian town of Blandford Forum to the south. Both Blandford Forum and Shaftesbury have a wide range of shops including supermarkets, delicatessens, cafes, doctors and dental surgeries, libraries, an arts centre, veterinary surgeries, small hospitals and secondary schools. There are mainline railway stations in both Tisbury and Gillingham (London Waterloo) and the A303 lies some 13 miles to the north giving access to the south west and London, via the M3.
