Tenure: Freehold

An elegant Grade II Listed former farmhouse with late Georgian or early Victorian origins, beautifully presented accommodation, studio and fine views on the edge of the town.

Long Cross Farmhouse is a detached Grade II Listed house of stone elevations under a pitched slate roof. The front elevation faces south with attractive round headed doorway with panelled door and fanlight above.

Internally the accommodation is extremely well-presented and flows very well with hall having staircase to first floor and doors leading to principal rooms. All rooms have excellent proportions and good ceiling heights which is a characteristic of the era. The sitting room is over 22', light and bright with windows in the south and west elevations and stone fireplace with wood burning stove. The dining room also has a fireplace, cupboards and shelved alcove. Beyond the dining room is a study and cloakroom. At the rear of the house is a family kitchen/breakfast room with stone tiled floor, range of oak fronted wall mounted and floor standing units, breakfast bar, space for Range cooker and double doors to outside. Further double doors open into an extremely good sized utility room with sink, work surfaces and cupboard housing the boiler. There is underfloor heating throughout the ground floor.

The stairs lead up to a light landing with south-facing window and four double bedrooms and one en suite bathroom. The main bathroom is a stunning tiled room with oversized shower and bath.

Outside there is a detached studio with garaging below and oak framed summerhouse making the most of the lovely far-reaching views.


The property is situated in Long Cross on the western edge of the town with some super views over the Blackmore Vale.

Shaftesbury has an excellent range of shop and amenities including cafes, pubs, restaurant, niche retailers, a newly re-opened boutique hotel, banks, supermarkets, small hospital, library, health centre and an arts centre.

The area has good communication links with the A303 and the nearby town of Gillingham offers a Waitrose and mainline railway station to London Waterloo and the Southwest.

The area is renowned for its schools, both state and private and the town has primary schools and a secondary school. There are plenty of opportunities for walking and riding over the lovely nearby countryside.
