"110 minutes into Waterloo from a properly rural area".

The Cross is an attractive period property in a prominent position at the top of Tisbury High Street. Originally built in the second half of the sixteenth century, The Cross was extended in the eighteenth century, the late nineteenth century and twice in the middle quarters of the twentieth century. Carved stone heads, said to represent local characters are a feature of the village, with some lovely examples on the elevation along The Quarry. It was converted from The Cross Inn in the last three years, creating a well-planned contemporary home which combines contemporary function with traditional materials and character form. The accommodation is set out in the floor plans, centring on a wonderful kitchen and breakfast room, designed so the cook can connect with their guests. Rooms flow well from this large central space, perfect for entertaining and family life alike. The use of wooden floors in the principal reception rooms and first floor landing continues the practical, contemporary feel. A large sitting room with a woodburner has windows opening onto a terrace. The dining room retains the heart of the old inn and a fifth bedroom or third reception room to the front provides flexibility. There are some lovely views from the bedrooms. The main bedroom has an adjoining shower room, the bathroom is a large impressive room. The garden is also ideal for entertaining and relatively low maintenance. To the rear is a wood shed and to the side, off street parking. There is potential to create a garage, subject to consents. Tisbury, steeped in history, is the largest village in Nadder Valley to the west to Salisbury. Most of the older houses in the village are built with locally quarried Chilmark stone, contrasting with the Victorian red brick found on the High Street. The railway arrived in Tisbury in 1859 and is ideal for travelling to and from Salisbury, London and Exeter. It is set in a secret area amid beautiful scenery, and although a village, Tisbury has many of the aspects of a small town. Tisbury is slightly unusual for a large Wiltshire parish, with early settlement, in that no main road crosses the parish, and no road in it was turnpiked. The only road through the village was that from Chilmark to Fovant, which was joined at Tisbury by a minor road from the west. It is in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, on the north edge of ancient Cranborne Chase. Many of the villagers take pride in the lovely countryside, and the local footpaths offering varied vistas, and are much used. The High Street has around twenty shops, along with surgeries for doctors and for dentists and a twice-weekly veterinary attendance. There are also four pubs; three churches and four halls used for village events. Schools comprise Wardour Primary School, Tisbury First School, and Tisbury Preschool. The surrounding countryside, including the Cranborne Chase and West Wiltshire Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty provides wonderful opportunities for sport and rural pursuits. The A303 is around four miles away, allowing access towards London or the West Country. Tisbury has a sports centre and gym, as well as Wiltshire's only open air heated swimming pool.
