An attractive detached three bedroom stone bungalow (EOC), set in approx. 18 acres with extensive equestrian facilities and good quality pasture paddocks, in a highly desirable, accessible location.

We understand that the property was formerly part of a working farm and the bungalow has an occupancy condition that was amended in 1990 to allow occupation by persons engaged in the supervision of horses (planning ref. 90/01257/FUL). The current owners have run a successful horse stud from the property for over twenty years. 

The property occupies an enviable position, set up a private, tree-lined drive, surrounded by its own land and with a high degree of privacy and seclusion. It lies a short distance from the village of Horsington which has a highly rated primary school, pub and church. Nearby Templecombe has a Co-op Supermarket, doctor’s surgery and a mainline station on the London Waterloo line. The A303 dual carriageway is easily accessible at Wincanton, which has a variety of local shops and a health centre with sports complex. Wider ranges of amenities are provided locally at Sherborne and Shaftesbury.

The property is surrounded by beautiful rolling countryside and there is direct access from the property’s land onto a back lane which leads to good hacking along a network of local country lanes.
