Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Planning permission for a stunning new house in a rural location.

Whitings Farm has been in the same family for many years as a dairy farm. The main farmhouse has fallen into disrepair and planning permission has been granted for a stunning new house in a rural location facing south and east overlooking the stream that bounds the property, subject to demolition of the existing dwelling. In all about 1.25 acre.

Outline planning permission was granted by North Dorset District Council on 23 December 2015 Application number: 2/2015/1543/OUT for the erection of a new dwelling. A copy of the planning permission is available from Symonds & Sampson.

The new dwelling has gross external measurement of about 470sq.m. (5000 sq.ft.) over three floors and the buyer will then need to submit detailed plans to the district council.

Twyford is a hamlet containing a number of stone period farmhouses with lovely open countryside. Local facilities are nearby at Fontmell Magna (1 mile) including a public house, village shop and primary school. More extensive facilities are in Shaftesbury (3 miles) and there is a railway station in Gillingham with a regular service to London (Waterloo) taking about 2¼ hours. The A303 is accessed north of Shaftesbury providing direct east/west link and joins the M3 to London.
