THE PROPERTY

Built in 2005 by a local builder to a high standard and with real attention to detail, Sycamore House lies in a quiet position in a no through lane on the northern edge of the village. The accommodation, which extends over three floors, has been finished to a high standard throughout and provides light and spacious accommodation. Attributes worthy of mention include a well fitted kitchen with stone and wooden worktops, a water softener, an oil fired Aga, a locally carved stone fire place in the sitting room, and stone flooring. All the bedrooms and bathrooms have been fitted to a high standard. Recently planning consent has been given (application reference number 20/11197/FUL) to extend the property to create additional space off the kitchen and dining room. OUTSIDE The house is approached from the lane by a paved driveway which leads to a gravelled parking and turning area in front of the house. Near the entrance is a timber garage with a side store area, with a picket fence that divides the front area from the gardens at the rear. They are mainly laid to lawn and enclosed by a combination of hedge, wooden fencing and partly walled. There is a flower bed under the wall and stone paving that runs the full length of the rear faade. Berwick St John lies at the western end of the Chalke Valley, and on the northern fringe of the Cranborne Chase in an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It is a thriving and popular village with a church, village hall and a well regarded Public House. In addition there is a Post Office/shop and butchers in nearby Ludwell, and for a wider range of facilities, the Saxon Hilltop town of Shaftesbury is within easy striking distance. It has a good range of shops, a delicatessen, supermarkets, churches, a health centre, a dentist, a small hospital, a veterinary surgery, a library and a popular arts centre. For more sophisticated shopping and recreation facilities, there is the Cathedral City of Salisbury to the east and Bath to the north. Nearby Tisbury has a mainline railway station with services to London Waterloo. The A303, approximately 25 minutes to the north, gives access to the South West and London, via the M3, and there is a regular bus service from the village to both Salisbury and Shaftesbury.
