Wantsley Farm is a wonderful Grade II listed former farmhouse which dates from the early 17th century. Character features include mullioned windows, carved fireplaces, window shutters and flagstone floors.

The present owners have completely restored the property to an extremely high standard and the large farmhouse kitchen is of particular note.

Accommodation comprises: halls, drawing room, dining room, sitting room, farmhouse kitchen with Aga, and upstairs five bedrooms, including the master suite, and three bathrooms. There are also three attic rooms on the floor above.

Outside is a superb range of outbuildings including a stone barn which could easily be converted into an annexe or office, and extensive stabling. To the south of the house is a terrace with fine views out over the countryside, and a lawned area of garden – the grounds come to around 17 acres.

Wantsley Farm is located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty just over a mile from the pretty market town of Beaminster, and Bridport has more extensive facilities. The property also offers easy access to miles of beaches and walks along the World Heritage Coastline.

The guide price is £1.4m. For further information please contact Jackston-Stops & Staff on 01935 810 141 or visit www.jackson-stops.co.uk.
