5 St James is a delightful Grade II listed thatched end of terrace property built of painted brick elevations and timber framed windows. Full of charm and period features including exposed beams and flagstone flooring throughout the ground floor, the house has been sympathetically upgraded including under floor heating. The property has been finished with meticulous attention to detail.

The sitting room is delightful with a large inglenook fireplace and window seats. The kitchen/dining room has a good range of bespoke fitted cupboards, built in fridge/freezer and double oven.

The exceptionally light garden room has French doors opening onto the terrace, which is a perfect space for alfresco dining. There is also a utility and cloakroom.

On the first floor is a good sized master bedroom with fitted wardrobes and ensuite bathroom. On the second floor is a further double bedroom with ensuite bathroom.

5 St James is situated on a quiet road close to the centre of the historic Saxon hilltop town of Shaftesbury. Shaftesbury has a thriving high street with an excellent range of day to day facilities including a delicatessen, restaurants and a wide array of independent retailers. Further amenities can be found in nearby Gillingham where there is also a main line station to London Waterloo. For a wider selection of shops and cultural facilities, Salisbury is within easy reach. The A303 lies about 9 miles to the north which gives access to the south west and London via the M3. The area is renowned for extremely good schools, private and state at both junior and senior levels.

There is a very pretty garden to the rear of the house and is mainly laid to lawn interspersed with trees including a magnolia, and is bordered by flower beds with mature shrubs. At the far end of the garden is a pergola with vines growing against it and a potting shed. Adjacent to the house is a paved terrace.
