Sturminster Marshall, Dorset
DOMVS in assoc. with Fine & Country are delighted to offer this superb BARN CONVERION. Stunningly set in RURAL DORSET. SPACIOUS AND LIGHT. Contemporary living with rustic charm. 4 DOUBLE BEDROOMS - GENEROUS VAULTED RECEPTION ROOMS and almost an acre of GARDEN.
.... Rural chic at its best. This is a truly amazing house, set in utterly captivating old Dorset countryside, and sympathetically styled to sit in harmony with its surroundings.
A superb barn conversion, light and airy with four double bedrooms, it perfectly integrates the inside with the outside, seamlessly blending with its surroundings and creating a wonderful sense of space and light.
It sits in a lush acre or so of very private gardens, secluded yet not isolated. A perfect location offering peace and quiet.
The unassuming frontage belies the size, space and light that engulfs you as you walk under the veranda and through the front door. The use of the original rustic features, such as high vaulted ceilings and farmhouse style kitchen, with the contemporary - modern Scandi-style log burners and high-tech range and induction hob mounted in granite, complement each other perfectly; the theme running throughout, making this a most remarkable and unique home.
There is everything you need here, and more; the magnificent dining room which flows into the kitchen are, perfect for those gourmet cooks who also love to still be able to entertain their guest.
The sitting room is the real 'wow' factor, not only large and filled with light but opening onto a patio and large veranda allowing you to enjoy the space and garden - even on the chilliest winter night, snug in front of the log burner.
An incredibly useful and large utility/boot room sits to one side where you will find the fourth bedroom/children’s room/study. Along a stunningly light hallway are two further lovely large double bedrooms, both with superb en-suite facilities, one being a perfect guest room with French doors onto a private patio area. There is a further shower room, useful for the fourth bedroom.
In keeping with the wonderful style of the house, timber and glass stairs rise to the master suite, a stunning space, the bedroom overlooking the enchanting garden. A large open plan wet room beautifully tiled and very stylish and a separate WC.
Coming off the private lane onto the drive, through a five-bar timber gate, and under a small avenue of crab apple (Malus Hupehensis) trees, there is an area of parking in front of you which then opens out into the wonderful garden. To the side, a further five-bar timber gate opens onto the main driveway leading to the house and double garage.
The main veranda offers a wonderfully large space for entertaining outside and spills onto the patio to the side. The lawned and elevated garden is glorious, simply planted with natural meadow flowers in parts with paths mowed through and up to the woodlands at the rear. A large pond, artfully sits in an elevated spot, overlooking the attractive barn and the superb views beyond. A more delightful and peaceful spot would be hard to find!
The barn sits off a quiet lane just outside the village of Sturminster Marshall. An historic village in Dorset and situated on the River Stour - between Blandford Forum, Wimborne and Poole, which are all within easy reach by road.
There are many walks around the village including the Stour Valley Way, which follows the Stour right from the source to the sea. Just outside of the village a medieval, eight-arched, bridge crosses the River Stour at White Mill (National Trust). Incidentally, the bridge is believed to be the oldest in Dorset, dating from 1170. The village also has shops, post office, village primary school, church and local pubs.
