Property details

Inside

Welcome to Chestnut Hill, a delightful, 18th-century detached cottage on the edge of the desirable village of Donhead St. Andrew. Full of warmth and character, with roses around the door, Chestnut Hill is set in mature and beautiful grounds of over a third of an acre.

This Grade II listed property has been extended in the past, however it retains its intrinsic period charm and there is scope to improve further with the correct permissions.

As you enter, you are welcomed by a characterful interior, where exposed beams and an original inglenook fireplace create a warm and inviting atmosphere. An entrance lobby leads to the KTICHEN in the extended part of the cottage. The kitchen offers ample storage and space for a fridge/freezer, washing machine, and a Belling™ stove. Off the lobby area is a downstairs BATHROOM which has a bath, W.C, separate shower cubicle and hand basin. The SITTING ROOM is a charming space featuring a large inglenook fireplace, perfect for relaxing and cozy evenings. The windows provide views across the gardens, and a small lobby area offers direct access to the garden. This was the original front door and porch of the cottage. A second RECEPTION ROOM is ideal for dining, or it could serve as a library or additional snug. A GARDEN ROOM completes the reception areas, which is currently used as an office and a dining area for enjoying sunny lunches with stunning countryside views.

On the first floor the PRINCIPAL BEDROOM, has built-in wardrobes and views over the garden. BEDROOM 2 is a further double room, and BEDROOM 3 is a spacious single bedroom.

THE ANNEX is a substantial, traditionally thatched building, separate from the main house. This versatile space is perfect for working from home, hosting guests or as a potential annex for relatives. On the ground floor you’ll find a TWIN CAR PORT, a spacious WORKROOM, and an OFFICE/STORE ROOM. On the first floor there is a large BEDROOM with an EN-SUITE BATHROOM, and a spacious STUDIO/HOME OFFICE with stunning views across to Melbury Down and Win Green.

Outside

The grounds amount to approximately 0.36 of an acre (STMS). The property is approached via a gated, private, gravel DRIVEWAY that offers plenty of parking and leads to the annex. Next to the driveway is a lawned garden area with access to the garden room which also has beautiful views across the surrounding farmland. This area also features the ancient Chestnut tree that inspired the cottage's name.

A pathway from the driveway leads to the front door of the cottage and continues around to the beautiful, mature main gardens at the rear of the property. These gardens, a testament to years of care and devotion, are designed as ‘garden rooms’ divided by attractive brick walls and yew hedging. Immediately outside the cottage is a well-tended lawn, perfect for summer picnics and entertaining. Pathways reveal new delights at every turn, including vibrant flower beds, rose bushes, and ornamental and fruit trees. Towards the end of the garden, you'll find a vegetable garden, greenhouse, fruit cage, and a quaint summer house, perfect for enjoying the evening sun. The property has a well (which may have potential for a private water source).
