Of period origins, Crowlands is an attractive green sandstone cottage under a slate roof that has been imaginatively extended by the current owners within the last fifteen years. Situated in a quiet position with outstanding views, Crowlands has a nicely proportioned drawing room and a later extension providing a dining room and garden room taking full advantage of the outlook. On the first floor there are currently five bedrooms one of which could be converted into a bathroom which would enhance the accommodation. Attributes worthy of particular mention include attractive quarry tile flooring, three open fireplaces (two with wood burners) and the delightful garden. Accessed off Foots Hill, there is concrete hard standing providing car parking, adjoining which is a timber garage. Stone and brick steps lead through the front garden with an attractive terrace on the left and a series of tiered levels, the majority of which are laid to lawn with a wide variety of colourful flower and shrub beds. There is an ornamental pond, greenhouse and garden shed. There are a wide variety of plants including roses, acers, and ferns. Cann is a small hamlet lying just to the south of Shaftesbury. Shaftesbury has an excellent range of facilities including a delicatessen, cafes, restaurants, niche retailers, a boutique hotel, banks, a small hospital, library, health centre and an arts centre. In nearby Gillingham there is a Waitrose as well as a mainline railway station (London Waterloo) A wider range of facilities can be found in Sherborne, Bath and Salisbury, all within easy motoring distance. The A303 lies some nine miles to the north giving access to the south-west and London, via the M3.
