A stunning family home with equestrian facilities, standing in West Dorset's glorious countryside
Caroline Childs-Chaffey of Symonds & Sampson in Beaminster is understandably excited to be instructed to sell Higher Farm at Stoke Abbott. “Properties of this quality rarely come to the market in West Dorset. It’s a superb family home in a sought-after location, complete with glorious grounds, pool, stabling and outbuilding. We anticipate a high level of interest so early viewing is advised”
From the minute you approach the house via the sweeping driveway, and park in front of the Tuscan columned portico, you know you have arrived somewhere special. You can see for miles across the surrounding Area of Outstanding Natural, you’re on the edge of one of West Dorset’s many picturesque villages, and you’re a stone’s throw from Beaminster’s local amenities and the Jurassic Coast.
The Grade II Listed mellow Ashlar stone house is classically Georgian, with well-proportioned rooms with high ceilings and large windows flowing effortlessly towards a beautifully crafted orangery overlooking the garden, presenting the perfect property for entertaining. The 5-bedroom home has been sympathetically updated by the vendors whilst retaining the elegant features.
Outside, attractive gardens surround the property, with productive fruit and vegetable gardens. Relax after hard toil in the swimming pool, or stroll through the paddocks to the stream. The equine enthusiast is spoilt with 4 loose-boxes, an arena, barn and garaging.
