A superbly presented rural Farmhouse.

Burstock Farmhouse is a fine example of a sympathetically restored farmhouse in the heart of glorious rural West Dorset. The detached property has traditional local stone walls under a recently constructed part slate and thatched roof. The property is said to date from around 1220 and was once the vicarage to St. Andrews church until around 1875. As a farmhouse it was split at one time, but now forms a spacious detached dwelling.

Following recent complete refurbishment the property has retained its period character:- flag stone floors, inglenook fireplaces, exposed brickwork and ceiling beams, but now has modern wiring, plumbing, heating, bathrooms and kitchen. The standard of finish is particularly high with features including oak floors and doors throughout.

Burstock Farmhouse is in an area of Outstanding natural Beauty and has lovely views of Pilsdon Pen and the farmland to the rear. There is oil central heating, FIVE bedrooms, family bathroom, shower room and ground floor W.C Three main reception rooms plus a country style kitchen/breakfast room, utility and conservatory.

All in all, a beautifully modernised piece of history, enjoyed as a family home.


The farmhouse is approached from a quiet lane via a five - bar gate leading to a large gravel parking area and timber framed garage. the landscaped rear gardens are laid mainly to lawn with patio, kitchen garden, herbaceous borders, backing onto fields and can get sun all day.

There is also a very useful outbuilding, which could provide further living accommodation, subject to the necessarily planning permissions.

The property stands in an idyllic country location with views: far from the maddening crowd.

Early viewing is advised and serious offers will be considered.
