Myrtle Cottage is a charming period cottage built of Shaftesbury green sandstone with a slate roof which is very light and full of period features. The current owners substantially extended the property about 10 years ago creating a large kitchen/dining room and boot room.

To the front of the house are the two reception rooms in the original part of the house. Both rooms have window seats, exposed beams and large fireplaces (one with an open fire and the other with a wood burner). To the rear of the house is the kitchen/dining room which overlooks the pretty gardens and fields beyond. There is a good range of bespoke wood units, a butler sink and underfloor heating. Bi-folding doors open to a terrace. There is also a study, boot room/utility and cloakroom.

On the first floor are four good size bedrooms and a family bathroom with separate shower.

Myrtle Cottage is situated towards the edge of the village of Semley with rural views to both the front and rear of the house. Semley is a pretty and sought after village and has a good pub, shop, church and a highly regarded C of E primary school. Tisbury high street has a number of independent shops and a mainline station to London Waterloo. Shaftesbury is within easy reach and caters for most daily requirements while Salisbury offers a wider range of cultural, shopping and entertainment facilities.

While Semley is peacefully tucked away, the A303 is 5 miles to the north and provides access to the national motorway systems and airports via the M3. Access to the coast is via the A350, some a mile to the west.

Several well regarded schools are within close proximity, including Port Regis, St. Marys Shaftesbury, Sandroyd, Clayesmore and Bryanston whilst Bishop Wordsworth for Boys, South Wilts Grammar School for Girl, Godolphin and Chafyn Grove are located in Salisbury.

To the front of the house is a gravel path leading to the front door with parking for two cars and an attached single garage. To the rear of the house is a pretty garden, mostly laid to lawn with established flower beds. There is a terrace adjacent to the house. A bridge over the small brook leads to the remainder of the garden which was recently purchased and is laid to lawn.
