Property description

Tenure: Freehold

Merriott House is unlisted and has been owned by the same family since 1964. Considerable investment has recently brought it thoroughly into the 21st Century. There is an ancillary apartment in the coach house and a flat above the stable block. Mature gardens and grounds. Paddock. EPC rating: E

Merriott House is a large Georgian ham stone village house with extensive brick built stabling and coach house constructed at the same time. The house has been lived in by two successive generations of the same family since 1964 and is a much loved home well maintained and updated over time with extensive and adaptable accommodation.

Considerable investment has brought it thoroughly into the 21st Century while preserving and restoring its many original period features to a high standard internally. These include original cornices, flagstones, tile and parquet floors, open fireplaces and sash windows.

Adjacent to the house is a stable block incorporating a stable room with three loose boxes, an internal tack room and an adjacent carriage house, with a 2-bedroom flat above. Attached at the rear is a coach house incorporating substantial, well-presented living space and further updated garaging. This building as a whole has considerable potential as a standalone house or providing a very considerable amount of extra space to the stable flat.

The property is set in about 3 acres of garden, which is walled on three sides with the fourth side open towards a paddock. The gardens are primarily laid to lawn with some wonderful trees including a magnificent copper beech. There is a Victorian summer house overlooking the front garden and a sunken rose garden to one side of the main lawn at the rear with a secondary lawn beyond. In all the grounds extend to about 6 acres.

Owing to our commitment to keep both our colleagues and clients safe during this period of recommended isolation, we also have many self-serve viewing options available to you. Please contact the office to see which self-serve options this property has to offer. These may include video guided walkthroughs, 360 virtual reality viewings and enhanced comprehensive photography.

Merriott House is situated off a peaceful road on the edge of the large village of Merriott, set in beautiful countryside about 16½ miles from the Dorset coast.
