Batrims Hay has attractive Hamstone elevations under a double hipped slate roof which was renewed in 2012 and included new roof insulation material. The house is believed to have been built around 1820. The house is situated in an elevated position at the top of a sweeping gravelled driveway and occupies a splendid secluded location. There is spacious accommodation with good ceiling heights which comprises four reception rooms, kitchen, cellarage, five bedrooms and three bathrooms and benefits from oil fired central heating with under floor heating in the kitchen. The house has a good deal of period charm with features including marble fireplaces in the sitting room and dining room as well as sash windows with internal shutters to many rooms. There are cellars, an elegant staircase in the reception hall and excellent views overlooking the part walled gardens and grounds towards the Dorset and Somerset countryside beyond. The gardens are a particular feature with lawns (including a croquet lawn), a good variety of mature trees, paved terrace, outdoor swimming pool and paddock to the front.
Please see floor plans.
Bartrims Hay is approached via a long gravelled driveway leading to an extensive gravelled parking/turning area to the front of the house which in turn provides access to a paved and walled courtyard with outbuildings comprising three store rooms and a former Coach House which currently provides garaging. The part walled gardens are an attractive feature and include paved terrace and lawns leading up to an area of established woodland with a variety of fine mature trees as well as bluebells and snowdrops. There is also a croquet lawn, beyond which is an outdoor swimming pool, partly walled with a paved surround. To the front of the property is an area of paddock which has a water supply. The gardens are primarily bounded by open farmland and provide some excellent views across the surrounding countryside towards Dorset hills and Wynyard's Gap.
The village school currently rent a small piece of ground adjoining the paddock with a yearly rent of approximately £25.
