Handsome Victorian farmhouse in Dorset for sale

Lawn Farm is a charming, substantial Victorian farmhouse on the Dorset/Wiltshire border. The house dates back to 1887 and was formerly part of the Duchy of Cornwall Estate. It was bought by the present owners some five years ago and has since been the subject of a considerable refurbishment.

The accommodation is bright and spacious throughout with good proportions and the new kitchen/breakfast room is a good example of the recent work, with its custom-built units, oak and Zodiac work surfaces and a Traventine floor.

Accommodation in total comprises: drawing room, sitting room, dining room, snug, study, kitchen/breakfast room, boot room, master bedroom suite with bedroom, bathroom and dressing room and four further bedrooms (two en suite) and a family bathroom.
