Gods View was reputedly built in 1948 on the site of a period stone cottage. Bought 15 years ago by the current owner, the property has been imaginatively extended and completely refurbished during their tenure. Constructed of brick under a tile roof, Gods View has light and bright accommodation with a spectacular outlook over the surrounding countryside. It has a well-proportioned sitting room and dining room and a recently added breakfast room has significantly enhanced the accommodation. Upstairs there are five bedrooms, four of which are doubles. Attributes worthy of mention include wood floors in the sitting room, drawing room, garden room and study, an oil fired AGA and rangemaster cooker in the kitchen, an open Jetmaster fireplace in the sitting room and a woodburner in the dining room; there are double glazed windows throughout. In recent years it has been successfully let. Gods View is approached off the lane onto a paved drive leading up to the front door with a single garage. The garden extends to the front, side and rear of the property. The front is bordered by tall beech hedging and principally to lawn. Steps lead up to the side of the garden with a paved terrace and brick and gravel paths running up to the rear garden, which is partly to lawn flanked by tall hedging to both sides with a picket gate to raised vegetable beds. Beyond this an attractive area of deciduous woodland with oak, sycamore and silver birch. Timber shed. In all about 0.4 acre. Underhill is a small hamlet lying on the western fringe of East Knoyle, a popular and pretty village which is also the birth place of Sir Christopher Wren. The village has a highly regarded community run post office/store, church, village hall and Inn, and is surrounded by some of the most attractive country in the area which includes some pretty villages, and some noteworthy houses. The neighbouring village of Hindon has a doctor's surgery while Shaftesbury has a wide range of everyday facilities including banks, shops both national and independent, supermarket, boutique hotel, small hospital and library. More sophisticated requirements are available in the cathedral city of Salisbury to the east. Nearby Tisbury has a mainline railway station (London Waterloo) and the A303 lies some 1.5 miles to the north giving access to the south-west and London, via the M3.
