Bedrooms: 7
Old Stonecourt is an impressive property, with light and immaculately presented accommodation arranged over four floors, featuring elegant rooms with generous proportions. The property was built in 2016 and the owners have achieved a perfect blend of period design features, along with the convenience and understanding of contemporary living.

The stone portico entrance opens into a reception hall with a splendid central staircase that rises continuously to the first and second floors. On the ground floor, the large drawing room offers views onto the garden from two aspects and has an open fireplace with elegant stone surround. The heart of the home is the west facing stretch from the dining room, though the stunning kitchen/breakfast room and through large pocket sliding doors into the library/sitting room. The views from this side of the house through large sash windows overlook the garden and onto open countryside beyond.

The dining room, which is open to the kitchen, has French doors opening onto a south-west facing stone terrace. The kitchen/breakfast room is filled with natural light and features an electric Everhot along with a separate gas ring, large double Belfast sink and hot water tap. The cabinetry in the kitchen is hand-made and provides ample storage and workspace. There is a large central island with limestone top and extra seating. A breakfast nook with built-in bench, window seat and shelving provides a cosy corner. There is also a door out of the kitchen onto the garden and terrace. Auxiliary space on this floor is provided with a fully fitted larder with slate tops, a boot room, cloakroom and a butlers bar.

Off the hall, a staircase leads down to a tanked and dry-lined basement which has a sizeable playroom/gym. There is also a large laundry/utility area serviced by a laundry chute from the first floor landing, the plant room and a wine cellar/gun room.

The seven bedrooms on the first and second floors all benefit from incredible views from multiple aspects over the surrounding rolling countryside. On the first floor is the principal bedroom with en-suite bathroom and dressing room. There are three further double bedrooms, one with an en-suite bathroom, and the other two share a family bathroom. On the second floor are three further bedrooms and a sitting room/home office. A large double bedroom with en-suite bathroom, a twin bedroom and a cabin room with four built-in beds. These two bedrooms share a shower/steam room.

An un-developed old stone cottage provides a number of opportunities; ancillary accommodation, potential income stream, party barn or extensive office space.

The property is situated in an idyllic rural setting, with Tisbury within easy reach offering an array of independent retailers, including a selection of artisan producers and provides commuters with a direct train line to London Waterloo (1hr 48mins). The nearby Saxon hilltop town of Shaftesbury provides more comprehensive amenities including High Street and boutique shopping, a delicatessen, Tesco and Lidl superstores, numerous restaurants and cafés, a health centre, community hospital, library and an Arts Centre. Gillingham also offers a wide range of shopping including a Waitrose and Aldi, together with recreational and leisure facilities. A more extensive range of shops and restaurants together with a cinema and theatre are available in the cathedral city of Salisbury.

Communications in the area are excellent with the A303 providing links to the national motorway network, London and the West Country. The area offers a wide range of independent schools including Port Regis, Sandroyd, Hazelgrove, Handford, Clayesmore, Bryanston, Leweston, Godolphin, Kings Bruton, Sherborne, Marlborough and Downside. There are also a range of highly-regarded Grammar Schools in Salisbury and fantastic local primary schools at Wardour, Semley, Hindon, Tisbury and Chilmark.

A gravelled driveway, lined with young lime trees leads to the front of the property with generous parking. The garden is mainly laid to lawn but with mature shrubs, trees and borders. Although the house is just six years old, parts of the garden are very well established. The views from both house and garden are spectacular.

A large stone terrace runs along the west side of the house with ample room for outside living. The garden features low stone walls, flower beds edged with stone and filled with attractive varieties of perennial plants and shrubs, and specimen trees are interspersed throughout the grounds. A newly created vegetable garden edged with stone walls offers the opportunity to grow fruit, vegetables and flowers.
