A stunning four bedroom 17th century grade II listed house is situated in a secluded plot in the region of 7.23 acres with two stables, a tack room, 6 paddocks, an orchard, a private bridle path leading to Ashley Heath and Ringwood Forest which requires no roadwork and with fabulous views over neighbouring countryside. The property has been exquisitely presented in keeping with the age of the house, and offers approximately 2800 square feet with current planning permission to convert the cowsheds/outbuildings into two holiday cottages (one of which is in the process of being converted) and there is a listed barn with scope to create a games room to the side. The house offers immense character with an eclectic mix of modern and period features which include fabulous beams which we believe originally came from ships, latch doors, hardwood windows, limestone flooring and up to date underfloor heating and double glazing in certain rooms, all pulled together with the neutral tones of Farrow and Ball colours. There was planning permission (which might be able to be-reinstated) for the tack room to be converted into a shower/wc which might offer scope for additional revenue for the property from glamping or shepherd huts subject to checking with the local authority. All being offered with the benefit of no forward chain.
Internally: There is a storm porch which leads into a delightful and spacious sitting room which has limestone flooring, exposed beams, an inglenook fireplace with a log burner and priest’s hole which might have been utilised as a hiding place during the Reformation, there is also a cupboard with a hidden safe, led lighting and an Oak staircase. To the side there is a cosy snug with an open fireplace, lamp sockets for mood lighting and this room could be utilised as a nursery as it directly adjoins the fabulous master suite which boasts a pitched ceiling, solid Oak flooring, French doors and a boutique hotel style en-suite with spa bath, tv, travertine tiling, mood lighting, rain shower and ‘His’ and ‘Her’ basins with vanity cupboards.
The main hub of the house is the kitchen/family/dining room which is flooded with natural lighting from the bi-folding doors, bringing the outside in and there is a glass sloping roof to the side. The room is positioned to the side and rear of the property and comprises further limestone flooring, bespoke hand built base and wall units painted in Farrow and Ball with Oak worktops, display cabinets, wine fridge, red wine climate store unit, filtered boiling water tap, an ‘Aga’ with double oven with 6 electric hobs with extractor fan over and decorative Winchester tiles, island unit with granite worktop and breakfast bar, Rangemaster dishwasher and plumbing for an American style fridge/freezer. To the side there is a boot room/utility room with slate flooring, a Belfast sink, French doors, plumbing for a washing machine, space for a dryer and a shower/wc to the side which has a spa shower and tiling.
The first floor landing provides access to three bedrooms which appreciate the views, one of which benefits from lamp sockets and there is a family bathroom/wc with a roll top bath and claw feet with a shower attachment and engineered Oak flooring.
Outbuildings: To the side of the main house there is an exterior office with a cloakroom/wc to the side and boiler room which in turn leads onto the cow sheds which has planning permission to create two holiday cottages. One of the self-contained holiday cottage annex is being sympathetically converted, leaving traditional beams and features en-situ by the current owners. The annex will comprise of a lounge/dining area, double bedroom, shower room with walk in rain shower, kitchen with integrated appliances such as a cooker, dishwasher, fridge/freezer, plumbing for a washing machine and underfloor heating. There is also additional planning consent to create a second holiday cottage, in the same style as the first to create further holiday accommodation. There is also a listed barn which is said to be one of the best traditional barns in the South of England which could have scope for a games room and has immense character with a stunning pitched roof and beams, to the rear there is useful workshop with power and lighting.
Externally: The property is approached via a long driveway through a five bar gate onto gravel horseshoe courtyard one of only three remaining in Dorset offering parking for several cars with a charming low brick wall and raised patio. Directly to the right of the drive there are five post and railed fenced well-drained paddocks, a turn-out paddock and a chicken coup to one side, a vegetable garden with greenhouse and a yard with two stables, a tack room and an aluminum garage, to the other side there is a gated orchard and access to the bridle path. At the rear of the house there is a formal garden with a sleeper divide and slate patio which meanders to the side adjoining the kitchen bi-folding doors with stunning views over the paddock and beyond which has stock wire fencing, and an animal shelter.
Viewing highly recommended in order for a buyer to truly appreciate the potential, character and secluded plot this stunning 17th Century house offers, a rare gem indeed.
