Located within walking distance of the popular village of Winfrith Newburgh, this imposing 17th century grade II listed converted barn, has more than generous accommodation plus superb American style equestrian facilities. This lovely family home is offered with land amounting to approximately 8 acres, with the option to purchase more. The owners have enjoyed living and keeping their own horses here since it was converted in 2008/9. A fully equipped yard, with 11 internal and 7 external boxes plus an all-weather ménage, the property lends itself to a variety of uses. Very much a family home with an existing equestrian home/business. This could be improved upon with the potential for redevelopment into a holiday complex, subject to planning.
This handsome barn has been sympathetically renovated by our vendors to retain traditional features, with vaulted ceilings, a galleried landing and huge oak beams throughout. The expansive KITCHEN/ FAMILY ROOM is the hub of the house and there is a UTILITY ROOM and CLOAKROOM. A more than generous, GALLERIED DRAWING ROOM is flooded with light from floor to ceiling windows that replaced the original barn doors. The addition of a more intimate SITTING ROOM with wood burner and a step up to a formal DINING ROOM as well as quiet GARDEN ROOM to the rear all perfectly compliment this lovely home. Underfloor heating services the entire ground floor and there are views from every window.
Accessed via two staircases from either side of the property, the FIRST FLOOR bedrooms are all generous doubles with fabulous views to the surrounding countryside. The MASTER BEDROOM has a beautiful vaulted ceiling, dressing room and the large EN-SUITE BATHROOM is resplendent with walk in shower, double spa bath, wash hand basin and WC. BEDROOMS 2 AND 3 have similar, high quality, EN-SUITE FACILITIES and BEDROOM 4 is situated next to the FAMILY BATHROOM. This versatile arrangement also allows for the possibility of annexe accommodation for additional income or extended family.
There is dual access to the property and its fabulous facilities via electronic gates. Gravelled driveways lead to generous, SEPARATE PARKING AREAS for both the stables and the house and a DOUBLE GARAGE adjoin the stables. The GARDENS surrounding the property are laid to lawn, enclosed by post and rail fencing and the courtyard to the front of the house has a striking water feature. Accessible from the stable block is an OFFICE and OUTBUILDING with wash area, WC and SHOWER ROOM. There are 11 INTERNAL BOXES within the barn plus storage and 7 front facing EXTERNAL BOXES with overhung roof and hardstanding, overlooking the ALL-WEATHER MANEGE. The property is lit externally for both aesthetic and practical purposes.
A short walk from the lovely village of Winfrith Newburgh, situated between the market town of Wareham and the county town of Dorchester and has an award-winning village shop and post office, popular public house and picturesque St Christopher's church.
