  • Flexible Accommodation (Scope Annexe)

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.
