There is also a generous dual aspect dining room with wooden flooring and a feature stone-built inglenook fireplace with wood-burning stove and a well-proportioned front aspect study with neighbouring cloakroom. The ground floor accommodation

Located in the Cranborne Chase Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the small hamlet of Cann Common lies near to the Saxon hilltop town of Shaftesbury, which offers a good range of day-to-day amenities including High Street and boutique shopping, numerous restaurants and cafés, a community hospital and a library.

Gillingham also offers a wide range of shopping, services, recreational and leisure facilities and a more comprehensive range of shops and restaurants. A cinema and a theatre are available in the cathedral city of Salisbury.

The area is renowned for its excellent variety of field sports with racing at Salisbury, Wincanton and Newbury, golf at Rushmore and South West Wilts and a range of water sports on the nearby south coast. Communications in the area are excellent with the A30 providing a link to the national motorway network, London and the West Country and Gillingham station offering mainline services to London Waterloo in around two hours.

The area offers a good selection of state primary and secondary schools including Ludwell Primary School, Shaftesbury C of E Primary School and Shaftesbury School as well as a wide range of noted independent schools including Port Regis, Clayesmore, Sandroyd, Hanford, Knighton House and Bryanston.

The property is approached over a tarmacadam side driveway providing parking for multiple vehicles and giving access to a detached garage with neighbouring open-fronted store. The part-walled front garden is laid to lawn with a vegetable garden and a generous paved terrace off the sitting room, ideal for entertaining and al fresco dining, while the enclosed garden to the rear is laid mainly to gently-sloping lawn, the whole enjoying stunning elevated views over neighbouring countryside.
