The house is constructed of local Chilmark stone and rendered, under a hipped slate roof with dormer windows. The classical design includes ashlar stone quoins and a delicate stone band wraps around the house providing aesthetic detail to the clean rendered façade. The large sash windows are also framed in cut Chilmark stone.

The layout of the house on the ground floor has been planned thoughtfully with family living in mind. The wide entrance hall leads into a fantastic, large, bespoke open-plan kitchen and dining room. There is a central island with a breakfast bar opposite the i150 Everhot. A large antique dresser compliments the kitchen and incorporates cleverly designed, integrated dog beds. There are many integrated appliances including a Perrin and Rowe boiling tap, Sub-Zero wine fridge, Gaggenau fridge and freezer, two Miele dishwashers and a Miele microwave. The fitted larder and range of built-in units provide ample storage space for a large family.

A pair of French windows lead directly from the kitchen into the garden, whilst double doors connect through to the family room or “pod”; the large Critall style windows provide a wonderful light space to relax. Further double doors lead onto the sitting room, which has an open fireplace and large fitted dresser, designed to house a large television with plenty of shelving and storage around. The sitting room connects directly back to the main entrance hall and also to the study, again fitted with ample builtin shelving and over-looking the rear garden and Willow tree. There is a large boot room connecting to the back garden with large butler sink, fitted units with integrated dog beds and a separate WC. The utility room has a further butlers sink and is fitted with Miele appliances. There is also space for a second washing machine or tumble dryer if desired and ample fitted cupboard space.

Upstairs, the principal bedroom suite includes a fantastic dressing room with extensive fitted wardrobes and hanging space. This leads onto the large master bedroom with lovely views from the front of the house and also to the sumptuous bathroom, with Versailles parquet floor, large bath and separate walk-in shower. A bespoke, walnut vanity unit designed to house two basins, storage drawers and cupboards with walnut framed mirrors above. There is a large guest bedroom suite with en suite bathroom, a large twin bedroom and further double bedroom which share the large family bathroom. All bathrooms have separate showers and baths.

The second floor is perfect for children, with a wide landing and two bedrooms that share a central bathroom. One bedroom has been set up, like the other bedrooms in the house, as a super king or twin but this room could easily hold three beds. The other bedroom has three large single built in beds in a dormitory style creating a fun and usable space for children or grownups. Both top floor bedrooms have extensive storage carpeting loft space which can also be a fun play den for children. The family bathroom has a separate shower and bath.

The re-positioned driveway enhances the privacy of the house and garden, sweeping up from the lane and past the new oak-framed double garage and machinery store. The garage has planning permission to extend, please contact Knight Frank for more details. There is plenty of parking with deep floral borders at the front of the house and a maturing hedge securely separates the garden and driveway. The gardens provide a lovely foil to this spectacular family home, and the owners have landscaped the grounds to create a large level lawn with plenty of lateral space to the front and side. The gardens rise up gently behind the house with a lovely Willow tree providing a focal point and stone steps leading down to a rear courtyard with planters and espaliered fruit trees have been planted to flank the lovely Chilmark stone walls.

Wandle House stands back from a village lane in a lovely position within its garden. The re-positioned driveway allows for a fantastic approach to the house, passing its garaging and arriving at a large gravelled parking area to the front of the house, with lawned areas of garden on both sides.

Chilmark is one of the most sought-after villages and communities on the Cranborne Chase Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with an attractive village centre, primary school, village hall and excellent links to important local hubs such as Salisbury, Tisbury, Shaftesbury and Blandford Forum. The highly regarded Black Dog public house is within easy walking distance.

Tisbury is 2.5 miles away with a post office, local supermarket and a range of shops, bars and delicatessens. The Beckford Arms is well regarded as one of the best pubs in the area whilst the train station also provides a direct link to London Waterloo, taking from 1 hour 48 minutes. The Cathedral City of Salisbury is 12 miles to the east with a comprehensive range of shopping, leisure and recreational amenities, including a large Waitrose supermarket. The A303 is 2.5 miles to the north which provides a quick link to the M3 going east towards London and the M5 heading southwest and north towards the Midlands.

Primary and secondary schooling in the area is exceptional with the Sherborne schools, the Salisbury schools, Sandroyd, Port Regis, St Mary's Shaftesbury, Hazelgrove and Bryanston, Hanford and Knighton House around Blandford Forum. There are also many very good local schools, including Chilmark, Wardour and Semley for Primary and Gillingham School for Secondary.
