A fine opportunity to purchase this spacious and very individual barn / old dairy conversion believed to have been converted in 1980. Many period features from the original building have been retained including a number of lovely old arches and in the agent’s opinion, the property offers very flexible accommodation with scope for the creation of an annexe.
The property has been utilised by the vendors in the past for mainly private residential and private equestrian use with a very useful stable yard having a separate access onto the road.
To the rear there are lovely private gardens and grounds with superb views over The Blackmore Vale and to King Alfred’s Tower.
By crossing over the main road into Cherry Orchard Lane, there is good access to lane hacking in the area as well as Duncliffe Woods. The land we understand is currently tack grazed for horses (7 months of the year).
The property is situated just out of Shaftesbury which has a wide range of independent shops, supermarkets, health centre, etc. Gillingham to the north has a mainline station with services to London Waterloo and to the south west. There is a Waitrose supermarket and good schooling in the area including Port Regis School.

Just a quick thank you to you and your company for the help we received from you all. Every conversation with staff members was pleasant and caring. We will definitely recommend Rural Scene to others.
I really don’t know how to thank you for the last 2 months of your time you have been priceless and you are amazing at what you do and have helped to change my life 💝💝💝💝 Due to how amazing you clearly are we have so much trust and respect for you that we are going to be delighted to place our cottage on the market with Rural Scene once we have moved and we would recommend you without hesitation to anybody needing to sell a rural property x
We just wanted to pass on our enormous thanks for the hard work you and your company put into selling our property and helping with the purchase of this house. We also want to thank you for your unfailing support, encouragement and cheerfulness through what was, for us, a very stressful time
I just wanted to pass on my thanks for all your tremendous work during the sale of our property. It's been a bit of a rollercoaster at times but you did a great job in lining up the buyers for us. From the get-go I've felt we're in good hand with Rural Scene. Estate agents don't always get the best press but I wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to anyone selling their smallholding.
I felt I must write to you both to express my gratitude for the work Abi Rhodes has done on the sale of M......... From the initial meeting she has demonstrated expert knowledge in our type of property that had just been lacking from other agents and filled us with confidence. Throughout the marketing and sale she has been thoroughly professional yet friendly in dealing with the 77 viewings we had to undertake to get to the final sale. Some of the people as we have neared the sale have frankly been rude and in some cases unpleasant and Abi has dealt with them all and shielded us from it completely. She has worked tirelessly to get us finally to completion. I would not hesitate in recommending your company to anyone looking to market the properties you work with.
