Woolland House represents a wonderful opportunity to buy a special and completely unique country house, formerly the home of Elizabeth Frink. It has all the component parts of a small estate but has the feel of a warm family home, standing in magnificent gardens and grounds. About 17.4 acres. EPC: F

Woolland House lies within a 'Site of Nature Conservation Interest' and the Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The house enjoys stunning uninterrupted views across North Dorset into Somerset and cannot be seen from any public land.

The current owners oversaw a total restoration and refurbishment project of Woolland House by renowned family firm of builders and craftsmen, R Moulding & Co, creating a stylish seven bedroom house with modern services.

The house is approached via a winding drive, passing the six box stable yard and an Olympic size riding ménage. To access the house, you pass under a lovely archway with the clock tower above and into a beautiful cobbled courtyard with an ornate Provencal limestone fountain. On one side of the archway is the one bedroom coach house. A detached two-storey house is currently divided into two apartments, each with a kitchen, sitting room, bedroom and bath / shower room.

Formerly the home of the celebrated artist Dame Elisabeth Frink, still standing in the grounds are two studios, built for her, where she created some of her most famous works.

Woolland House has an exquisite collection of mature trees including three Redwoods, Cedar of Lebanon and a large Handkerchief Tree. The gardens, ponds and lake have been restored to an exceptionally high standard by the current owners with fabulous Azalea gardens and woodland walks. The lake is stocked with rainbow and brown trout, so ideal for fishing enthusiasts.
