Full description

A stunning detached period style country house, enjoying rural views, set in gardens and paddock totalling approximately one acre in this unspoilt part of West Dorset. The spacious and beautifully presented accommodation extends to 3 reception rooms, 4 bedrooms, a conservatory and double garage with studio above. EPC band D.

The Old Byre which is detached, has elevations of coursed natural stone and flint, with leaded light double glazed windows, under a thatched main roof with slate over the garage. Built in the late 1990's to a period style, the house stands in a wonderful, secluded location with completely walled frontage, mature gardens and an area of paddock adjoining meadow land at the rear, with the mill leat running between the garden and paddock. The total plot extends to approximately ONE ACRE (0.4ha). There are uninterrupted views from all the principal rooms and gardens across the surrounding countryside. Internally the spacious and well planned accommodation has many features associated with this style of house including an inglenook style fireplace with woodburner, beamed ceilings, oak doors and oak staircase to the gallery style landing. Extending to 3 separate reception rooms, conservatory, kitchen/breakfast room, utility room, 4 bedrooms with 3 en suites, bathroom and studio above the double garage, the property is thought to appeal to both the family and active retired seeking a country home within easy travelling distance to Dorchester.

The property is located within the small hamlet of Southover close to Frampton and the larger village of Maiden Newton. Dorchester is located 6 miles to the east and Crewkerne is 15 miles to the west. Frampton is situated within the rolling Dorset chalk lands, highly sought after for its beautiful scenery and close proximity to the World Heritage Site of the Jurassic Coast. The area is renowned for its many bridleways, cycle paths and footpaths exploring the beautiful countryside and some of its historic places of interest.

Nearby is Frampton Park and the Peacock Bridge, which is made of Broadmayne brick and faced with Portland stone and dates from 1795. Frampton has a petrol station with a shop; however Maiden Newton just a few miles away has a much larger selection of educational facilities, local shops, public house, doctors' surgery and restaurant. A more extensive range of shops, entertainment facilities and schools can be found in the County Town of Dorchester.

Double entrance gates give access to a driveway with extensive parking/turning area and to the attached DOUBLE GARAGE with twin up and over electrically operated doors, personal door, electric light, power, oil fired boiler, and staircase up to the STUDIO room.

The very private stone and flint walled front garden is lawned, has planted beds and borders together with mature trees. Side pedestrian gate gives access to block paved path with timber garden shed, log store and compost bins.

The rear garden has block paved pathways, a block paved patio which is adjacent to the rear of the house leading to the main lawned garden, again with planted borders together with split level stone and a paved terrace. Adjacent to the side boundary, there is a rose clad trellis over a gravelled path. A rustic style fence and archway leads to a further lawn with steps leading to the lower terrace adjacent to the mill leat. From the garden, a bridge leads across the mill leat to the paddock. Within the paddock is a timber stable style outbuilding. The gardens supply a wonderful mature setting which enjoys countryside views. Total area of garden and paddock extends to approximately 1 acre (0.4ha).

Agents note: The present vendor has permitted a neighbour a right of access across the corner of the paddock to allow access to their land.
