Constructed of green sandstone under a thatched roof, Still Meadows is a delightful period cottage in a spectacular position with far reaching views. The accommodation is sensibly configured with good ceiling heights and is light and bright; there is an open fireplace with inset woodburner in the sitting room, while upstairs there are two good sized double bedrooms and a further study/occasional bedroom. At the rear there is an integral garage; planning consent (now lapsed) has in the past been given to convert this into further accommodation at ground floor level, which would undoubtably enhance the accommodation. More recent improvements have included re- thatching in 2015, and all the windows have been replaced during the current owner's tenure. Other attributes include new bathroom fittings and a direct pressure water system. Still Meadows is approached off the lane through metal gates onto hard standing, adjoining which is the integral garage. The garden lies to both sides while the rear backs onto fields. The garden to the north east is principally to lawn with small vegetable garden. There are attractive raised green sandstone borders flanking the lane and a larger area of garden to the south east. This is principally to lawn flanked by tall hedging on both sides, bordered on one side by a most attractive raised flower and shrub border. Still Meadows lies on the fringe of Donhead St Andrew which has a thriving community with many clubs and societies, two churches and an excellent pub, The Forester. For everyday needs, the Saxon hilltop market town of Shaftesbury has a good range of shops, a boutique hotel, markets, churches, a health centre, a dentist, a small hospital, a veterinary surgery and a library and arts centre. For more sophisticated shopping and recreational facilities there is the Cathedral city of Salisbury to the east and Bath to the north west. Nearby Tisbury has a mainline railway station with services to London Waterloo and the A303, approximately 8 miles to the north, gives access to the south west and London via the M3.
