As sole agents we are delighted to be able to offer for sale the freehold of Crumpets Farm at Lytchett Matravers. Constructed originally during Victorian times the property was two estate workers cottages which has since been merged together and is now sympathetically presented with a blend of modernism against some of the original features. Offering well appointed and immaculately presented accommodation Crumpets Farm sits in around three acres of the most beautiful Dorset countryside. Adjoining a working farm, and currently used as a home and business, the property renders itself open to a variety of uses (subject to the necessary consents). There is a detached Studio outbuilding which is in current use with light, power and heating and this building contains lower floor areas which could be converted into far larger working uses (subject to consents). Early viewings are advised in order to avoid disappointment and these should be arranged as soon as possible. Lytchett Matravers is a historic village that is well served by its own local amenities with the market towns of Wareham and Wimborne and Port of Poole all within six miles distance.
