Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A spacious detached house for modernisation and possible extension with outbuildings, paddock, stream and woodland in all about 2.13 acres

Palemead House is a detached house, formerly two cottages of brick elevations under a pitched tiled roof believed to have been built in 1928. It is positioned in open countryside with lovely views over neighbouring fields, yet a short distance from the village of Motcombe and the towns of Shaftesbury and Gillingham. The house has been well looked after but the accommodation could now be improved either with an extension STPP or by modernisation and there is scope to develop the outbuildings.

The property is approached from the road on to a drive with plenty of parking. There is a double garage with adjoining workshop and store, two further stores, a shed and a greenhouse. The land is contiguous with the house and garden and includes a paddock and mixed deciduous woodland, known as Fernbrook Brake, with mature trees including Ash and Hornbeam. The garden is laid to lawn and extends to about 0.6 acres. A stream runs through the land. In all about 2.13 acres.

The area is surrounded by the beautiful, gently rolling countryside of the Blackmore Vale. The North Dorset town of Gillingham is about 1 mile away and has a full range of everyday shops and services including Waitrose and mainline railway to London Waterloo. Shaftesbury is about 3 miles away and from the town the A30 gives access to Sherborne and Salisbury. The A303 is just to the north of Gillingham for access to London (via M3) and the West country. The area is well known for its abundance of excellent state and private schools and has some excellent walking and riding countryside.
