A HOUSE on the Dorset/Wiltshire border with uninterrupted, far-reaching views over the Blackmore Vale is on the market for nearly £2m.

Thanes House was built in 1930 and retains many original features including fireplaces and leaded windows.

The property sits in an elevated setting close to Shaftesbury, with spectacular views from all the principal rooms.

The gardens are laid out in terraces and include areas of lawn as well as a wide variety of beds, borders, trees and shrubs.

Next to the house is a large, south west facing stone terrace, designed to make the most of the views.

Extending to about 14.5 acres in total, the gardens and grounds include four acres of mature woodland and ten acres of pastureland with a water supply and field shelter.

Thanes House is approached by a long, tree-lined drive leading to a parking and turning area at the front of the house.

There is a large, detached double garage with a store room above and the drive continues around to access a substantial wood store.

James McKillop of Savills Salisbury said: “Thanes House is a lovely, light house with beautifully maintained, large rooms and far-reaching views which are undoubtedly among the best I have seen.”

Available by separate negotiation is Thanes Lodge, which sits at the entrance to the property and is a well presented cottage with two reception rooms, a kitchen, conservatory and bathroom on the ground floor and three bedrooms on the first floor.
