FARCOMBE HALL is an attractive and highly individual four bedroom detached period stone house C1800, that has been extended in recent years to create a spacious and comfortable country residence set in approximately 10 acres of fields and woodland.
This property has undergone a programme of refurbishment works and remodelling possibly in the 1980’s/1990’s reflecting the mildly eccentric and imaginative tastes of the previous owner. The property now offers considerable scope and potential to update and improve with the possibility of further extending and enlarging the accommodation, subject to new planning permission and building regulations. Enjoying a pleasant semi-rural location on the edge of this popular and sought after North Dorset village of Bourton, with historic connections to the former mill and foundry.
