Full description

An immaculately-presented, contemporary and well-designed, two bedroom, first floor apartment located on a purpose-built retirement development for the over 55s. Management services are provided by Cognatum Estates, a not-for-profit organisation and one of the UK's leading companies in retirement housing.

With beautiful views of the church spire and towards the Blackmore Vale, Home Farm is exactly as the name suggests and houses farm buildings that have been converted into spacious properties, each with a rich sense of character. Further cottages built in the grounds complement the architectural style of the older buildings, and all have conservatories and balconies. There are several acres of mature, landscaped gardens to enjoy.

It is a short walk to the shops of Iwerne Minster. There is a post office and general store, a pub and hotel and the village shop and cafe also bakes their own bread daily. With its winding lanes, the stream that runs through the village, the old pump, the popular cricket club and the parish church, the village has a quaint charm. Located near Cranborne Chase, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, it has its own river, the Iwerne, and St Mary’s has been rated one of England’s 1000 best churches. The lively market town of Blandford Forum is just seven miles down the road, the seaside towns of Weymouth, Bournemouth and Poole are all within an hour's drive and the coast at Sandbanks can be reached in around 20 minutes.

Cognatum Estates maintains, repairs and insures all the buildings, arranges the window cleaning and refuse collection and tends to the gardens and grounds thereby freeing owners and residents from these responsibilities. There is a personal alarm system in each property and resident estate managers make this an ideal 'lock up & leave'.  The cost of providing all the services is shared equally between all properties. There are no restrictions on owning a property except that one resident must be over 55 years of age.

999 year lease (from 1984). No ground rent.
