THE PROPERTY

Quietly positioned in the centre of the village, Willowbank is a handsome attached village house with a red brick facade under a tiled roof with large sash windows. The house has been well maintained by the current owners and has sensibly configured accommodation with well-proportioned rooms with excellent ceiling heights. Attributes worthy of particular mention include painted timber flooring in the dining room, fine open fireplaces in the principal reception rooms and in all the first floor bedrooms. The kitchen is well fitted with an oil fired AGA providing hot water. There is a delightful breakfast room with french windows opening onto an attractive paved terrace at the rear. OUTSIDE Approached off the lane there is car parking for two cars to the east of the property with a gate leading to a rear garden. There is a low brick wall to the front of the house; the majority of the garden is to the rear flanked by close boarded fencing and partly walled. At the side there is an area of garden bordered by yew hedging with a magnolia. The garden has been well looked after in recent years with a large weeping ash, and silver birch and flanked on all sides by well stocked flower borders with a wide variety of flowering shrubs. Willowbank is quietly positioned in the centre of this pretty and popular village, which lies midway between Shaftesbury and Blandford Forum. Comprising mainly of period houses and cottages, Iwerne Minster has a good range of everyday facilities including a village post office and stores, pub and church. For a wider range of facilities there is the Saxon hilltop town of Shaftesbury to the north, and the Georgian town of Blandford Forum to the south. Both have a wide range of shops, cafes, doctors and dental surgeries, libraries, an arts centre, and secondary schools. The regional centres of Bournemouth, Poole, Bristol and Bath are within striking distance. There are mainline railway stations in both Tisbury and Gillingham (London Waterloo) and the A303 lies some 12 miles to the north giving access to the south west and London, via the M3.
