Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A substantial five bedroom character property located in a no-through road on the Milton side of Gillingham. The property includes a self contained annexe, a variety of outbuildings, and workshops which have the potential to be developed for either commercial or residential use (subject to permission)

Northmoor House is a substantial cottage built of stone elevations beneath a slate roof that has been sympathetically extended over time. The cottage boasts a wealth of character throughout including flagstone flooring, inglenook fireplace and exposed
beams. The accommodation is spread out over three floors with the heart of the home situated in the 30ft kitchen/family room which includes a Rayburn at one end and a walk in pantry at the other. The dining room enjoys double doors leading out to the large conservatory/ entrance hall, and on through to the sitting room which enjoys a lovely garden view and a wood burning stove set in the former inglenook fireplace. The cottage has the luxury of a utility room, study and cloakroom on the ground floor as well as a fully fitted bar/library room.
The first floor provides a master suite with walk in dressing room and en-suite bathroom, three further double bedrooms and a family bathroom with both a shower and a roll top bath. The second floor has been converted into a large attic room with exposed beams and velux roof lights. Attached to the office space is a 37ft studio offering a variety of possible commercial, residential or leisure uses, or the potential to extend the living accommodation subject to gaining the necessary consents.

Northmoor House is located on a no through road on the edge of the popular town of Gillingham. The Town offers services to cater for most everyday requirements with a Waitrose and Asda supermarket, pharmacy, bank, post office, doctors surgery, pubs, cafes and gift shops, along with the well regarded state school.

Gillingham also enjoys a mainline railway station serving London Waterloo (2 Hours) and the South West. Northmoor House is located just 3 miles from the A303 giving access to the South West and London via the M3, whilst the A350 provides access to the coast.

The Cottage
The Studio and Annexe:
The Studio has a useful separate entrance but can be accessed through the utility room from the main cottage. The possible uses for this room are only limited by your imagination. The annexe is attached to the studio on the east of the horse shoe shaped courtyard and comprises an entrance hall, living room with wood burning stove, fully fitted kitchen/breakfast room, double bedroom and bathroom. The loft space is partially plumbed and could potentially be converted into two bedrooms and a second bathroom, subject to gaining the necessary consent, and the property benefits from a private rear courtyard.

Adjoining the annexe is a converted barn with wine store, shower room and games room. There is storage above and a large first floor office. The rest of the barn has been converted into a large gallery with specialist lighting and a workshop/garage with mezzanine storage above.

A wooden five bar gate leads into the horseshoe shaped courtyard which provides copious amounts of parking and access to the four bay car port and workshop. A grand brick water feature sits centrally in the courtyard. Access to the goo size garden is found through the conservatory and the car port. It enjoys a southerly aspect and is enclosed by an attractive brick wall one side. A paved patio borders the house and the garden enjoys mature trees, an area of lawn and feature staddle stones. A path from the living room provides easy pedestrian access out onto the lane and into the town centre.

From Shaftesbury take the B3081 to Gillingham. Continue through Gillingham towards Milton on Stour. After passing the Fire station on the left, continue straight over at the mini roundabout. Take the first right turn, follow the road to the left and onto Purns Mill Lane and Northmoor will be found shortly on the left hand side.

Mains water and electricity, private drainage, oil fired central heating.
