Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A very rare opportunity to create a contemporary four/six bedroom, five bathroom, detached property standing in grounds circa 1.7 acres (0.7ha) and enjoying some of West Dorset’s finest views .The property is named after ‘The Pinnacles’, an impressive pair of flint towers built c.1850 which marked the entrance to the tree-lined carriageway drive to the Manor House, and although not listed, are important historical landmarks. The site also takes in an historic bluebell woodland and a wonderful display of many varieties of daffodils in the springtime. There is also a substantial separate timber outbuilding which is in need of repair or replacement.”

The Pinnacles has detailed planning permission for three barn shaped buildings on level access which is mostly single storey. The proposed house has been carefully designed to be flexible with potential for generous family living, occasional accommodation for extended family and guests, bed & breakfast or self-catering holiday let with owner's accommodation.

The design includes a wonderful open plan kitchen/living area with vaulted ceilings which will enjoy glorious views over the town and surrounding countryside to the sea, taking in the local landmarks of Golden Cap, Colmers Hill and Gerrards Hill. One of the three barns contains four generous en-suite bedrooms with the potential for two further double bedrooms in another barn, along with family bathroom and kitchen facilities affording annex potential. All three barns are joined by a large orangery/sitting area which has access to the rear courtyard garden. The property will be approximately 3,400sq. ft. gross internal area. Planning approval also includes permission for a double garage. Planning No. WD/D/15/000884
