Of period origins and subsequently extended in the 1980s, Swainscombe is a delightful attractive green sandstone property under a thatched roof, standing in gardens and grounds of approximately 0.6 acre. The property has been re-thatched within the past three years and offers expansive family accommodation. Attributes worthy of particular mention include oak flooring in the hall and dining room, quarry tiling in the kitchen, an oil fired AGA, inglenook fireplaces in the dining room and sitting room together with some attractive beamed ceilings. In addition, the property has attractive leaded light windows with oak lintels over. Subject to the usual consents, there could be scope to convert the looseboxes into an office/ancillary accommodation which would certainly add value and enhance the accommodation. Swainscombe is approached off the lane to a large car parking area which adjoins the garaging. The property is approached through a tall metal gate onto a path leading to the porch. The gardens extend around the property and are principally to lawn with a wide variety of mature trees including hazel, sycamore, weeping cherry, chestnut and mature oaks, together with a wide variety of flowering shrubs. There is an attractive terrace to the rear and timber garden office with power. A track leads to a further terraced area with loose boxes (which subject to planning could be put to a variety of different uses). Beyond the looseboxes, a path leads to the large car parking area with garaging, which is in need of attention. The Green is a peaceful hamlet on the north-western fringe of the popular village of East Knoyle, which lies close to the Wiltshire/Dorset borders, just to the north of the Saxon market town of Shaftesbury. The Green has a popular pub, The Fox and Hounds, while East Knoyle has an excellent and highly acclaimed village shop/post office and a church. 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.
