Situated in an attractive, elevated position, Home Farm comprises a versatile family home enjoying excellent views over its own land and beyond.

The house is currently arranged as a 3 bedroom farmhouse with a 2 bedroom annexe but could easily be turned back into 1, 5 bedroom house.

The property offers light and spacious living accommodation with all reception rooms being double aspect.

Home Farm subtly retains the character and charm of a traditional farmhouse with features such as flagstone flooring, wooden flooring and inglenook fireplaces. There is a barn that has been recently converted into another reception room, a perfect party barn.

Home Farm is set back off the lane with a graveled drive and front garden made especially private by mature trees and hedging. The front garden is mainly laid to lawn with immaculate flower borders, a pond and mature trees.

At the rear of the property is a large garden divided into a lawned area with patio for outside dining. There is a well stocked vegetable garden for the cook in the family. The rear garden overlooks the amazing view across the Dorset countryside.

To the side of the house is a set of barns currently used for storage, workshops and garaging. We believe subject to the relevant planning that these would make ideal holiday lets, offices or an annexe.

There is a paddock adjoining the property making the total plot size approx 4.6 acres.
