Full description

Tenure: Freehold


On the market for the first time in over thirty years this delightful, idyllically situated country property with lovely views towards the Purbeck Hills provides a vast amount of interior space within a pretty, private garden. Built of brick under a tiled roof with generous accommodation over two floors and great reception space the house is ideal as a large family home or well situated bed and breakfast. Huge potential still exists in the loft room over the integral garage and the garage itself for further accommodation subject to the necessary consents. The south facing roof has photovoltaic solar panels providing free electricity.
Permission was sought and gained in 1988 and 1989 to the extend the house and this provided initially, a garage, store and utility room and then a lovely single storey extension on the west side with a further bedroom with ease of access for guests with disabilities This room could also be a further sitting room overlooking the south facing garden.

The existing accommodation provided a Formal Reception Hall, Dining Room, Sitting Room and lovely Kitchen/Breakfast Room all steeped in many features belying both its it Victorian roots and later additions including terracotta tiled floors, open fireplaces with wood burning stoves, a stripped pine staircase and doors, William Morris print wall papers to mention but a few.

The first floor provides three good double rooms with an en suite and a main, recently refitted, bathroom.
West Holme Farmhouse has a lovely feel and is a property much loved for many years by the current owners.


In 2009 consent was granted to provide a superb oak framed barn containing garaging and workshops together with first floor storage space. The planning complimented the large courtyard which already provided ample parking for a number of vehicles and also provides plenty of space for caravans, trailers or horseboxes.

The grounds of the house extend predominantly southwards, are laid mainly to lawn with mature hedges and extend to approximately 1 acre (0.4 ha). At the southern end of the garden there are variety of mature trees, storage sheds and a growing and wildfowl area.
There is also an aviary, substantial kennels and a bio sphere working in a similar, yet more effective than, a greenhouse.

The property is also sold with the benefit of a further 6.181 acres (2.51ha) which adjoins and lies to the south east of the farmhouse. The adjoining land is currently let on a Farm Business tenancy to the neighbour which expires in the latter part of 2016. The ground has been in an arable rotation with maize sown last year.

The House and Land have good access with a field gate on the southern boundary, main access to the house and a further gate to the west side at the lower end of the garden.
