Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

An impressive country house set in established gardens and grounds of approximately 0.55 acre, enjoying some of the finest rural views over the popular Marshwood Vale.

A fine and rare opportunity to acquire an impressive country house which extends to over 3,000 sq ft built principally of an attractive natural stone construction under a tiled roof. Much care and consideration was taken during its construction to create an individual and imposing home which truly captivates the stunning rural views over the popular Marshwood Vale. The moment you arrive at the property, you are greeted by landscaped grounds and a sweeping driveway leading to various garages and a commanding porch with arched timber doors. Although the property benefits from an oil fired central heating system and double glazing to most openings, some general updating may now be appropriate. There are 3 principal reception rooms alongside a galleried landing and an impressive gracious hall which grants access to the kitchen with oil fired Aga and walk-in larder. Other benefits include an adjoining garage and useful utility area with en-suite facilities to both master and guest suites.

A particular feature is the 0.5 acre site which has been extensively landscaped, incorporating various terraces and paved patio areas alongside a timber pergola, all oriented towards captivating the stunning rural views. The grounds also adjoin open countryside. The beautiful Marshwood Vale is renowned for its setting and provides a variety of rural pursuits, including hunting, horse riding, water sports, sailing, fishing, walking and cycling, yet with reasonable access to a number of small towns. Historical connections abound in the local area, frequented by both Thomas Hardy and William Wordsworth. The area benefits from excellent communication being centrally located between the towns of Beaminster, Bridport, Axminster and Crewkerne. The whole is situated in an area designated as being one of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and a World Heritage Site for its magnificent Jurassic coastline, with much of the surrounding land owned by the National Trust.
