Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A well presented, 3 double bedroom detached country house standing in a slightly elevated position, adjoining open countryside, on the edge of this picturesque village, with views across the Tarrant Valley.

Barn Cottage was formerly a barn which was converted in 1949, with later extensions, and, in more recent years, has had a programme of refurbishment.

The property is situated in the heart of this sought after Tarrant Valley village, about 5 miles from Wimborne Minster and 4 miles from Blandford Forum. The village has a parish church, a village hall and the True Lovers Knot Inn. The nearest primary school is located in the nearby villages of Spetisbury or Pamphill, and Dumpton Preparatory School can be found just outside of Wimborne.

There is an arched entrance porch, with a front door to the main reception hall (with built-in cloaks cupboard,) and a cloakroom.

There is a spacious 'L' shaped lounge/dining room enjoying a dual aspect, and a main feature of the room is a brickette fireplace (with a log burner.)

Double glazed doors lead out to the rear conservatory which enjoys a south facing aspect, with fitted blinds, two radiators, and double glazed French doors lead out to the garden.

The modern fitted kitchen has an excellent range of units incorporating a gas hob (which is propane gas,) cooker hood, electric AEG double oven, integrated dishwasher, drawer freezer and separate fridge. There is a large walk-in pantry, and separate laundry cupboard providing appliance space and plumbing for washing machine and tumble dryer. A door leads to a side conservatory/boot room housing an oil fired Grant combination central heating boiler (replaced in approx 2016,) and storage cupboards containing the propane gas bottle for the gas hob.

From the main reception hall, a staircase leads to the first floor where there is a galleried landing (with cupboard.)

There are 3 double bedrooms. The master bedroom has a large walk-in wardrobe, and enjoys a dual aspect with open views (to the front and rear elevations,) and an en suite shower room.

The family bathroom has a modern suite (with low cistern W.C., bidet, pedestal wash hand basin, bath, and wall mounted shower fitment.)

Outside, Barn Cottage is set nicely back from the road and is accessed off a small, private lane. A blocked paved driveway provides ample off road parking, where there is a reinforced parking area for a motorhome/caravan leads to a double garage (with electrically operated up-and-over door, lighting and power points.)

The delightful cottage style gardens are beautifully maintained, and the gravelled front garden is bound by an established hedgerow, and is arranged for ease of maintenance, with a seating area.

The gardens extend to the side of the property where there are lawns interspersed with a wide selection of shrub beds. The rear garden adjoins open countryside, and immediately adjacent to the property there is a paved garden terrace, with steps leading to a raised lawn punctuated with well stocked flower beds and fruit trees.

DIRECTIONS: From Wimborne, proceed towards Blandford on the B3082, past Kingston Lacy House and through the avenue of beech trees at Badbury Rings. Proceed down the hill into Tarrant Keyneston, and Barn Cottage is the second property on the left hand side (accessed off a small, private lane fronting onto Wimborne Road.)
