Povert Bridge Farmhouse is believed to have originally been built in the 19th century and has been substantially extended in the last ten years to create some outstanding well rounded accommodation that takes full advantage of its position. The extension of the property has been particularly successful with the older part of the house blending seemlessly into the new while the original parts of the property have been completely refurbished retaining the character features but installing all those features deemed necessary for 21st century living. The key however to this property is its position which sits in a generously proportioned gardens overlooking the adjoining countryside.

On the ground floor on one side of the house there is an attractive sitting room centred around a fireplace equipped with a wood burning stove with a sitting area to one end, a study area to the other and two sets of double door on one side overlooking the gardens. The feeling of space within the room is enhanced by the triple aspect while much of the ground floor including the sitting room is laid to plank floor with the exception of the kitchen area, the utility and the downstairs cloakroom which are laid to tiles. On the other side of the house there is an attractive farmhouse kitchen with an eating area to one end and a sitting area to the other. In the eating area there is a brick fireplace while the kitchen is equipped with a comprehensive range of floor and wall mounted units and cupboards with space for a range cooker to one end. To one side of the kitchen area a door leads through to a utility room beyond which there is a cloakroom while there is a back porch which makes an ideal place to store both coats and boots. Upstairs there are three good bedrooms the principal of which mirrors the sitting room below and is vaulted with to one end a door through to an en-suite shower room with a walk-in shower. The two remaining bedrooms are served by a large family bathroom fitted with an extraordinary large bath. The property has oil fired central heating, is fully double glazed and has gas bottles providing gas for the range cooker.

Povert Bridge Farmhouse sits in the glorious Dorset countryside mid way between Hazelbury Bryan and Mappowder with views over local countryside in all directions. There is a shop and a public house in Hazelbury Bryan while the property is conveniently placed to the centre of a triangle between Dorchester, Sherborne and Sturminster Newton providing between them a range of cultural , recreational and shopping facilities. Sporting, walking and riding opportunities abound within the area with many walks to be had nearby while the region is well known for both its private and publically funded schooling. Communication links are good with main line stations at Gillingham and Dorchester while road links are along the A303 joined at Mere giving swift access to London and the Home Counties along the M3, M25 route

Immediately to the side of the house there are two sets of double doors leading out to an attractive paved terrace enclosed by a low brick wall which makes an ideal entertaining area during the summer months. The grounds spread out on two sides of the house and are for the most part laid to lawn and enclosed by mature hedges and post & rail fencing. To one side there is a substantial log cabin that could be used in any number of ways including a summer house or an office beyond which there are raised vegetable beds enclosed by sleepers. To one side there is a substantial area of parking.
