The house was converted from an agricultural barn over a period of years and completed in 2009. the grounds were landscaped to create the wrap around gardens. There are a series of outbuildings which provide ample parking and covered storage as well as a separate Studio, ideal for home working or recreational use. Internally the property is well-presented with modern kitchen and bathrooms and a spacious conservatory which enjoys fantastic outlooks across the land.
Plans were drawn up to significantly extend the house and are available, though planning permission would need to be applied for by the new owners.
The land amounts to just over 10 acres and slopes upwards away from the house. Mostly pastureland, but with an area at the top which has been kept as a haven for wildlife. From the top of the hill on a clear day, the sea can just be seen in the distance. The views from the grounds are spectacular and despite being just a mile from Beaminster, there is a real feeling of seclusion and privacy.
Detached barn conversion situated within the grounds of Bowgrove. Two reception rooms (one with wood burner) and private raised terrace offering wonderful views.
A gated driveway provides parking for several vehicles. In addition there is a covered car port, an open fronted barn (with lockable side room) and a further garden store.
Oil Fired central heating (oil tank in corner of side garden)
Private drainage- there are two septic tanks, one for the main house and one for the studio.
Private water- there is a spring at the top of the land with a gravity fed pipe down to the garden where water is pumped into the house and treated via a UV water system. (a recent water quality test is available to view via the agent.) The water also supplies Bowgrove Farmhouse and another cottage down the lane.
Rights of way. There are no footpaths on the land. There is an unrestricted agricultural right of way from the lane across the lower paddock diagonally for the farmer to access fields beyond.
Our agents can point out the position of septic tanks, rights of way etc on your viewing.
The property is not listed, but sits in an AONB.
A small area at the bottom of the lower paddock will be retained by the current owner and they will shortly be submitting planning for an agricultural barn for storage. Trees will be planted in front to screen the area.
