Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A beautifully situated residential and stock farm with detached period farmhouse (subject to Agricultural Occupancy Condition), range of modern farm buildings and 4 holiday cottages, enjoying a lovely rural and coastal setting surrounded by its own farmland. The land in total extends to about 100.02 acres.

Manor Farm was formerly a dairy farm but, in recent years, has been a mixed stock farm. The property comprises a period farmhouse with stone elevations under a slate roof that offers a family sized home and enjoys fine views over its own farmland towards the coastline and beyond.

The very useful range of modern farm buildings lies adjacent to the farmhouse and have, in recent years, been used for storage and alternative enterprises to include butchery and workshop, along with housing of livestock.

Adjacent to the farmhouse is a converted traditional farm building comprising four holiday cottages, of stone elevations with slate roof and UPVC double glazed windows. The buildings were converted to the current use approximately 10 years ago and provide a substantial and useful additional income.

The gently sloping to level productive pasture land is split into two main blocks and has been further sub-divided as per our lotting.

The land in total extends to about 100.02 acres (40.48 hectares).

Manor Farm, Shipton Gorge is located in a rural position at the southern edge of the village of Shipton Gorge and close to the coastal village of Burton Bradstock. Both villages offer public houses and general stores. Nearby West Bay and the coastal town of Bridport offer a wider selection of facilities to include supermarkets, Post Office and well regarded schools. The nearby towns of Axminster and Dorchester offer mainline rail connections to London Waterloo (2h 40m) and the larger centres of Taunton and Exeter, with its regional airport and connection to the M5 motorway, are within easy reach.

Lot 1 - The Farmhouse, modern farm buildings, holiday let units and 42.69 acres (17.28 hectares)

Built of local stone under a slate roof, the house has retained some original features such as fireplaces and exposed timber beams. The house enjoys good sized rooms with good ceiling heights and views to the front towards its own farmland. Outside to the front of the main house is a walled garden with lawn, roses and shrubs. To the side is a kitchen garden with vegetable beds and greenhouse.

Connected to the main house is the traditional farm building converted to four holiday units, a single storey building of traditional local stone construction under pitched slate roof. Each unit comprises 2 double bedrooms, kitchen and combined dining and living area, with en-suite shower room and separate bathroom. To the front of each is an enclosed garden with communal area and car parking to the rear. Adjacent to the farmhouse is a detached outbuilding converted at the same time, which is used as a games room and laundry for holiday let occupiers. The buildings were converted to the current use approximately 10 years ago and provide a substantial and useful additional income.
