Constructed in the late 1940s 1 The Headlands is a former farm workers cottage set within wonderful mature gardens located within the hugely popular village of Bowerchalke.

The property is a 3 bedroom semi-detached family home with a excellent accommodation including a double aspect through sitting room with an attractive brick-built open fire and French doors leading to the garden. The dining room is also a good size with a working fireplace housing a log burning stove and is open plan to a well fitted and well equipped farmhouse-style kitchen. Off the kitchen is a large rear lobby which gives access to a sizeable utility room, separate cloakroom and a large walk-in storeroom; from the lobby access is also gained into the garden.

The first floor benefits from two double bedrooms, a large single bedroom and a large family bathroom. Offered for sale in excellent order throughout, 1 The Headlands is fully double glazed and centrally heated via an oil fired boiler to radiators.

A particular feature of this village home is undoubtedly the lovely gardens which have to be seen to be fully appreciated and to enjoy the variety of flora and fauna. The garden is beautifully planned and includes a productive vegetable garden with a greenhouse, a wild meadow garden located in one corner, a pond and bog garden, and several seating areas. There is a well manicured lawn to both the front and rear with vibrant flower beds and shrubs. There is also a timber garden shed and summerhouse. To the front immediately off Church Street is a private drive with parking for several vehicles.

The neighbouring village of Broad Chalke has an award-winning community store and post office and the hugely popular Queens Head Inn. Bowerchalke itself is surrounded by the Chalke Valley, lies on the River Ebble and has access to a great many country and rural walks. The village lies equidistant between Shaftesbury and Salisbury, (circa ten miles either way), where an extensive range of everyday shopping, leisure and education facilities can be found together with mainline railway stations.
