A beautifully renovated and extended home overlooking it's grounds and lake, close to Sherborne
The village of Over Compton lies in an often forgotten but particularly attractive corner of Dorset, between Sherborne and the Somerset border. Tucked away on the outskirts of the village, behind the 15th Century church lies The Manor House.
Unrestrained by existing structures or listing limitations, the current owners of the Manor House have enjoyed the luxury of a relatively free hand during the renovation and extension of the original building. The stunning home they have designed therefore takes full advantage of the glorious vista across the grounds to the lake and glorious countryside beyond.
Extensive ground floor living areas are light, spacious and effortlessly stylish, perfectly blending traditional oak and local Hamstone with contemporary features and fittings. There’s over 5000 sq ft of accommodation including a ground floor self-contained annexe, every room with the ‘wow’ factor, and most with that stunning view. There’s a beautifully designed kitchen, with the gourmet Aladdin’s cave that is Trencherman’s just a short walk away for a ready supply of fine food and wine. The house is efficient too, with an EPC rating of C, solar panels and a ground source heat pump fuelling underfloor heating throughout.
The 7.44 acres of grounds are equally spectacular as they gradually undulating from a lawn to a wild flower meadow surrounding the lake with its two island and a boathouse. A productive orchard also lies within the grounds, which are bordered by mature trees for privacy. It’s a stunning property, a party pad to impress, a hideaway to savour, but most of all, a sumptuous home to cherish.
