Westward is a delightful, double fronted cottage situated along a quiet country lane just a short distance from the market town of Shaftesbury. Arranged over two floors the cottage boasts character features and well-appointed accommodation throughout. The ground floor comprises entrance hall, inner hall with stairs, double aspect sitting room with feature fireplace and wood-burning stove, an open plan kitchen/dining room with quarry tile flooring, a Belfast sink and granite worktops and wonderful views of the countryside. A utility and cloakroom are located to the rear of the kitchen while a charming garden room sits to the front overlooking the front garden. Underneath the main staircase is a secondary staircase leading down into the cellar. The landing provides access to the three well-proportioned bedrooms along with the main bathroom.

East Melbury is a small hamlet located in the Dorset countryside, close to the National Trust area at Win Green. The property is located near the market town of Shaftesbury where you will find many facilities to meet most everyday requirements including two supermarkets, a doctors surgery, farmers market, boutique shops, restaurants and cafes. The area benefits from excellent communication links with the nearby villages of Tisbury and Gillingham providing mainline railway stations to London Waterloo and the south west, whilst the nearby A303 provides access to the M3, and the A350 leads to the South Coast. There are a number of good state and independent primary and secondary schools in the area.

Westward sits in a large plot enclosed by a mature mixed hedge and is predominantly laid out to the front with paved seating areas to the back and side. To the right is a parking space for one vehicle in addition to the gated driveway further down the garden with space for a further three vehicles. To the left of the property is a sunken seating/entertaining area with outstanding countryside views. Enclosed with stone walls and low fencing it also houses a vegetable and herb garden and small potting shed. The garden to the front is laid to lawn and surrounded by borders of mature shrubs and trees. It leads through to a small fruit orchard and wildlife pond with free standing pergola and greenhouse. A timber former garage next to the driveway has been converted to a studio and storage space.
