Vine Cottage is a rare bird indeed – an unspoilt yet well cared for gem tucked away in the heart of a great village. The front approach to the front door is from a quiet and private garden, and draws you into a light hallway. The kitchen is warm and generous in size, with extensive work surfaces, and Aga, and ample space for a dining table. The double-aspect sitting room is the heart of this home, with an impressive Inglenook fireplace complete with bressumer beam, a wood-burning stove and a bread oven. Upstairs, a balanced range of bedrooms and bathrooms are well configured, and would work equally well for a family or perhaps a couple/individual. Other attributes include an excellent study, window seats, hardwood flooring, good ceiling heights in the main, and generally light and bright rooms. The master bathroom is worthy of particular mention. This house has a lovely “feel” about it, and must be viewed to be truly appreciated.

The separate studio makes an ideal office or library, with fitted bookcases, oak flooring, and a wood burner. Panoramic windows give the occupant a fabulous view of the walled garden and the rolling countryside beyond it.

Vine Cottage is ideally situated in centre of the village of Sixpenny Handley, in the heart of the unspoilt and beautiful Cranborne Chase.The village offers excellent facilities including an extremely popular butchers, W.S.Clarke & Sons. In addition to a Doctors' surgery, post office, grocery store and village pub. The property is near to good schools including Sandroyd, Port Regis, St Mary's Shaftesbury and those in the Chalke Valley and Salisbury. Two good public houses are both within 15 minutes' drive: The King John at Tollard Royal and The Museum Inn at Farnham. Vine Cottage is also approximately 25 minutes from Salisbury, Blandford Forum and Shaftesbury. There are two mainline stations to London, one from Salisbury (approximately 90 minutes to Waterloo) and the other from Tisbury a similar distance away. On the doorstep there is an abundance of excellent walks and bridleways and the area is a safe haven for young children to explore.

The house is approached by a gravelled drive leading past the gable end of the building and opening into a private driveway with an oak carport. A path crosses a small lawn to the front door, and it edged with a variety of flowering shrubs and roses. The main garden is walled down one side with an impressive cob wall which has recently been restored. This area is laid mainly to lawn with some planted flower beds and shrub boarders. To the front of the house there is a small lawn, which can provide additional parking should it be required.
