Extensively re-modelled and extended in 2016, Riverside is a substantial contemporary house with expansive accommodation in a quiet elevated position in the heart of this popular village. Constructed of local green sandstone, with red cedar cladding and part rendered under a slate roof, the house has been built to an exacting standard and offers adaptable accommodation over two floors. High quality finishes have been used throughout with engineered oak floors and underfloor heating, open fireplaces in the sitting room and kitchen/dining room, bespoke windows built by Beehive joinery, and light and bright accommodation. The Guild Anderson kitchen is worthy of particular mention with painted wood cupboards, granite worktops, a large island and built in Bosch appliances. All the bedrooms have blackout curtains, (automatically operated in the master bedroom) and in the hall there is a rain sensitive velux rooflight. The property is approached off the lane through automatic gates onto a paved drive adjoining which is a double car port. The garden is laid to lawn with a post and rail fencing at the rear and tall hedging on both sides. There are two terraces, one accessed from the kitchen and the second from the sitting room at the rear of the property. There is a raised vegetable bed at the rear. Riverside is set well back from a quiet lane on the edge of the village of Donhead St Mary. The village has a church and there is an excellent pub in the neighbouring village of Donhead St Andrew. The nearby village of Ludwell has a highly acclaimed shop/post office, together with a butcher, while for more extensive requirements the hilltop Saxon town of Shaftesbury is within easy reach and has a wide range of facilities including niches retailers, cafes and supermarket, together with a health centre, small hospital, a library and an arts centre. More comprehensive facilities can be found in the cathedral city of Salisbury. There is a mainline railway station at Tisbury (London Waterloo) and the A303 lies some six miles to the north giving access to the south west and London, via the M3.
