Full description

Tenure: Freehold

On the market for the first time in nearly 30 years, this period country house business sits within beautiful gardens and grounds in a highly sought after location. Change of use was granted in January 2015 to reinstate the property as a single dwelling house. About 10.4 acres. EPC rating: D

Stock Hill House sits well within its land, with an impressive tree-lined approach to the front of the house. The original part of the house dates from about 1860 and is constructed of stone elevations under a tiled roof. This fine country house is not listed and provides an incoming purchaser with a superb opportunity to create a wonderful private family home in an established and mature setting.

Whilst the property is in very good order and currently used by the owners as a country house hotel, there is plenty of scope to re-arrange the existing layout, if required, to provide modern-day family accommodation.

The coach house and flat offer flexible accommodation that could be incorporated into the main house or used as ancillary space for a business venture.

The gardens and grounds form a major part of this
wonderful property, with a balance of formal gardens, large areas of lawn, woodland, a productive vegetable garden, large pond and hard tennis court.

Stock Hill House is situated in a rural setting to the north west of the market town of Gillingham, located within the Blackmore Vale area of Dorset. Shopping, business and recreational facilities are available in Gillingham, Shaftesbury, Wincanton, the Abbey town of Sherborne and Bruton.

The area is served by excellent schools both in the public and private sectors. These include Hanford, the Sherborne Schools, St Mary's in Shaftesbury, Leweston,
Bryanston, Port Regis, Hazlegrove, Sandroyd and Canford.
