Standing on its own in secluded surroundings on the edge of the pretty village of Coombe Bissett, The Garden Apartment at Shutts House has an instantly welcoming feel. The owners, who live in the upper part of the house with a completely separate entrance on the other side, have converted the lower level into an ultra-contemporary space with beautiful floors and furnishings and a very high level of luxury throughout. The large living area and the main bedroom both have huge sliding windows giving straight on to the very private terrace and the lawns beyond.

Although on the outskirts of the village, its slightly elevated position gives this house an air of rural tranquillity but it is in fact only two miles south of Salisbury with its famous cathedral, ancient buildings, wide range of shops and cafes and perhaps the finest Close in the country. Situated at the eastern end of the much sought after Chalke Valley, the house is also perfectly located for exploring this outstanding region. Nearby are several ‘green lanes’, once drove roads and now affording wonderful walks and rides, and only a little further afield is the Cranborne Chase, a former royal hunting ground consisting of magnificent stands of trees interspersed with fields and open land, with some tremendous views towards the coast in the far distance.

The New Forest is also easily reached, a favourite destination where ponies (and pigs in Autumn) roam freely. Classic car enthusiasts should not miss a visit to the National Motor Museum at Beaulieu. Not far beyond is the Jurassic Coast with spectacular cliff walks and fine beaches. The whole region also contains many superb stately homes, gardens and historic monuments such as Wilton House, Stourhead and Stonehenge; the Georgian city of Bath is an interesting destination for a day’s visit.

An important part of any outing will be returning at the end of the day to relax in the peaceful, secluded garden and enjoy the almost Mediterranean effect of the luxurious outdoor furniture and discreet lighting – a magical experience.


Entrance from parking area and terrace in front of the house to a small, stylish hall. Very large living room with lovely tiled floor (partly carpeted), ample comfortable seating and woodburner. Sliding windows open on to the terrace and lawn. The fitted luxury kitchen at the rear has built-in ovens (one a combination conventional/microwave) and induction hob. The ‘feature’ dining table seats 6. The largest of the three bedrooms is beyond the living room with zip & link beds offering a choice of super kingsize double or twin beds, smart television and sliding doors to the terrace, plus an en suite bathroom/wc with stand-alone bath and large separate shower. Two further bedrooms open from the hall, one with zip & link beds (super kingsize double or twin beds) and one with kingsize double bed. Both these bedrooms are luxuriously carpeted and have smart televisions, and both have a very contemporary ensuite shower room/wc. There is a utility room off the hall.

Outside, the large terrace has all-year furniture including a large table with built-in LED lighting and further comfortable seating on the lawn. A large tree can be gently illuminated. Charcoal barbecue.
