Built in 1970 of stone under a slate roof with attractive sash windows, Langlands stands in gardens and grounds of approximately 2.6 acres in a quiet position with outstanding views. In recent years the property has been let and is now in need of refurbishment and offers scope for extension. Subject to the usual consents, there is an opportunity to extend at ground and first floors and possibly into the roof space should further accommodation be required; in addition, the annexe also offers scope for conversion into a cottage (subject to planning) which would create useful ancillary accommodation. The existing accommodation within the house is light and bright with good ceiling heights and nicely proportioned rooms but would benefit from further extension particularly at first floor level where there are currently three bedrooms and two bathrooms. There are lovely views to both north and south particularly at first floor level. Langlands is approached off the lane through close boarded timber gates onto a tarmac drive which forks towards the house and the annexe. The gardens lie to the side and rear of the property and are principally to lawn interspersed with mature trees including oak and willow. To the side of the house there is a former gravelled terrace from where there are splendid views. There are areas of lawn to both sides of the annexe, with an orchard and narrow area of woodland running up along the lane and adjoining the paddock to the rear. The paddock is fenced; there is a field gate immediately to the west of the garaging. In all about 2.6 acres Hugglers Hole is a small hamlet of mainly period farms and cottages lying to the north east of Motcombe and due west of Semley, which has a popular primary school, an excellent community run village shop and café, a public house and a church. The Saxon hilltop town of Shaftesbury has a wide range of facilities including a good variety of shops, churches, boutique hotel, doctors and dentist surgeries, a library, primary and secondary schools, a small hospital and an arts centre. For more sophisticated requirements there is the cathedral city of Salisbury, with its theatre and renowned annual festival to the east and the Georgian spa town of Bath to the north. There is a mainline railway station at nearby Tisbury (London Waterloo - approx 1hr 50 min) and the A303 lies about six miles to the north, giving access to the south west and London, via the M3.
