An unfinished 5 double bedroom detached Dorset barn conversion standing on an impressive site of about 3.5 acres with some outstanding views over the surrounding countryside.

Meadow View Barn is located in a superb rural position at Wigbeth, a rural hamlet on the fringe of Horton village, about 7 miles north of Wimborne Minster, which offers excellent shopping and recreational facilities. The larger towns of Poole and Bournemouth are both within easy driving distance, with mainline railway stations to London Waterloo, and the A31 at Ashley Heath, gives access to the M27 and M3.

There are excellent first and middle schools and Queen Elizabeth School in Wimborne. Schools in the wider area include Canford, Bryanston, Dumpton and Castle Court. Local sporting facilities include the Remedy Oak golf course and there are other courses at Broadstone, Ferndown and Parkstone.

THE BARN REMAINS UNFINISHED

This substantial steel-framed barn extends in all to about 4120 square feet, and the accommodation is arranged over two floors. The building is highly insulated, with inset SIP panels. There is a state-of-the-art Cambrian slate roof system, and the wall construction is 200mm timber with 75mm insulation and a breathable exterior membrane.
