THE PROPERTY

The Willows is a substantial modern house with colour washed rendered elevations under a tiled roof and stands in grounds of approximately an acre. The property has both versatile and adaptable accommodation, ideal for inter-generational living, with large well proportioned rooms throughout. Recent works within the last two years have included a new boiler, a new Range cooker, new oak flooring throughout the ground floor reception rooms, and a new wood burner in the sitting / living rooms. In addition, there is a separate annexe; recently a new Keops Log Cabin has been constructed which could provide a useful source of additional income. The property is approached from the lane onto a tarmac drive (providing shared access to a property behind). To the right there is a Keops Log Cabin with gravelled car parking and small area of lawn to the front. To the left of the tarmac drive, which is screened by evergreen trees, there is access to a large gravelled car parking and turning area adjoining the large integral double garage, with light and power and electrically operated up and over doors. The Willows stands in gardens of approximately 1 acre screened by tall evergreen hedging from the property behind and is principally laid to lawn with a variety of mature trees including willow. A gravelled track leads round to the side of the house providing separate car parking for the annexe. There is a large terrace to the rear of the property accessed from the garden room and the kitchen/breakfast room. Timber garden shed. The Willows sits in the hamlet of Rodgrove, approximately ½ mile to the west of Buckhorn Weston which is a delightful village on the edge of the Blackmore Vale, close to the Somerset/Dorset border. The village has a church, an active village hall, a popular pub (The Stapleton Arms) and an active cricket club. It lies some 3 miles from Gillingham which has a wide range of everyday facilities including banks, dentists, doctors, vets and supermarkets including Waitrose, and a main line railway station (London Waterloo). A wider range of facilities can be found in Shaftesbury and Sherborne and for more extensive facilities the centres of Salisbury and Bath are all within easy motoring distance. The A303 lies approximately 4.5 miles to the North giving access to the South West and London via the M3. There are airports in Bournemouth, Southampton, Bristol and Exeter.
