Property Description

Full description

Lot 1 - Blackdown House, Stable flat and farm buildings

Blackdown House commands an extremely prominent position overlooking the main block of land. Surrounded by mature gardens, the
house has far-reaching views. The surrounding pastureland is currently farmed in hand and is interspersed by small woodland glades and large blocks of woodland. It gives an extremely attractive outlook.

Blackdown House Farm was originally built by the current owners’ ancestors in the 1920s in an elevated spot on the outskirts of Briantspuddle. The country house is constructed of Debenham block and has a private driveway. The house has been maintained but is now in need of updating in parts. The ground floor has wooden flooring in most rooms, impressive fireplaces and wooden panelling in several rooms. The house enjoys outstanding views over the natural valley. There are eight bedrooms and three bathrooms providing ample accommodation on the first floor.


Located in the heart of Dorset, Blackdown House Farm lies close to the nearby towns of Dorchester,
Bournemouth, Wareham and Poole provide an excellent variety of shopping and recreational facilities. There are good communications in the area with a mainline railway service available from Moreton (3.5 miles), Wool (5.9 miles), Dorchester (10 miles) and Poole to London Waterloo. The A35 joins the A31 and provides a route along the M27/M3 to London. The area is well served by established independent schools such as Canford, Clayesmore, Bryanston, Milton Abbey and the Sherborne Schools. Sporting facilities in the area include water sports along the outstanding Dorset Jurassic coastline, fishing (dependent on permit) on the Rivers Piddle & Frome, golf at Wareham, The Dorset Golf and Country Club and Broadstone and horse racing at Bath, Exeter, Taunton, Salisbury and Wincanton.


Next to the house is a large gravelled area which leads out into the orchard and rolling lawns. The terraced formal gardens sit to the south with a great aspect overlooking a fabulous bluebell glade in the mixed woodland opposite. The formal gardens and elevated position provide an excellent vantage point to enjoy the surrounding natural beauty. The views span the natural parkland looking north-east towards the river meadows of the Piddle Valley.

The large first floor office with its own separate entrance. On the ground floor there are three garages and three traditional stabling boxes and a workshop (former harness room).
