Nestled at the end of a private track surrounded by open fields and woodland looking out towards the Purbecks, Holly Hedge Farm is a unique and individual opportunity for Equestrian hobbies and home and income. The substantial family home built in approximately 1890 has very large and accommodating rooms in the main house offering 5 double bedrooms, 4 of which are en-suites, 2 reception rooms, country style kitchen/breakfast room, boot room and large utility. The acreage in total is approximately 11 acres, made up of paddocks, woodland and landscaped garden and within the grounds are 6 stables, outbuildings and 4 individual holiday cottages varying from 1 to 4 bedrooms.
The large entrance hall runs the depth of the ground floor and has access out on to both the front and rear landscaped gardens. An attractive feature is the vibrant and unique art deco tiled flooring which really suits the style of the property and adds a splash of colour. Both reception rooms feature large wood burners with brick feature surrounds and the sitting room is light and very generous in size offering dual aspect and several windows.
The kitchen/breakfast room has country style units with tiled worktops, a large central island, propane gas range with extractor over, space for a dishwasher and fridge/freezer. The Kitchen floor is tiled and the breakfast area which has enough space for a 12-seater table is carpeted with a separate door back out on to the hall if someone was wishing to separate the rooms.
The utility room has space for a range of fitted machines, several cupboards and plenty of worktop available including a sink which is positioned with a window looking out on to the garden. The boot room has a stable door with access from the front of the property and links back through via a large WC.
The principal bedroom looks out towards the Purbecks and has views towards the paddocks and rear garden. There is an ensuite in this room as well as three out of four of the further double bedrooms. The landing towards the front of the property is very spacious and offers enough room if someone was wishing to have a desk or a reading area, and further potential would be for someone to put in another staircase to create another two/three room’s in the large loft space.
Stables and Outbuildings
There are 6 stables which open out on to a gated courtyard. The courtyard is surrounded by outbuildings including wood stores, machinery stores and opportunities subject to planning for further development.
Holly Hedge Farm has 4 fabulous holiday cottages which can be sold fully furnished if required. The holiday cottages are all fully equipped and finished to high standards including wood burners, open beams and country style décor.
Garden & Grounds
Over the last 30 years the current owners have created a beautiful, landscaped rear gardens with a variety of mature shrubs and flowers, a substantial rockery, fabulous pergola for eating out on those sunny evenings, large coy pond and a variety of open lawn areas. When they purchased the property the almost derelict house was lifeless with no landscaping and the owners have documented the changes through pictures showing the journey and the work that was put in to making the gardens as established as they now are. The property is approached down a gravel track past the golf club which is approximately 150 yards and has an electric gate leading towards a large parking area. There are approximately 4 acres of paddocks, and a further 6 acres of approximate woodland which Is fenced and includes a ¾ acre man-made lake which we understand has a natural stock of fish.
Mains water, electricity, oil fired central heating, propane gas tank for range, private drainage.
