Property Description

Tenure: Freehold

Deer Leap Farm is set in a prime hilltop position enjoying panoramic views across its 52 acres of gardens and grassland fields. The contemporary farmhouse is positioned to take advantage of these views and natural light and is set at the end of a sweeping driveway.

The farmhouse is laid out over two floors with open plan living to the ground floor making an ideal opportunity for both family life and entertaining. There is further planning permission to extend the ground floor footprint with an orangery to the side of the kitchen. The first floor offers three well-proportioned bedrooms and two bathrooms.

There is a separate annex/log cabin with two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a kitchen and sitting room.

Three barns are currently utilised as farm buildings, but have planning consent (class Q) to convert to a four bedroom and three bedroom dwelling respectively making them an exciting business prospect for an incoming purchaser.

NB: An agricultural occupancy condition and planning permission conditions apply.

Situation
Deer Leap Farm is situated in stunning countryside 2 miles outside the town of Gillingham. Dorset's historic hilltop town of Shaftesbury is 6.5 miles to the south east whilst the fashionable town of Bruton lies 12 miles away. Gillingham offers a wide range of shops and supermarkets including a Waitrose.

There is a direct train service to London Waterloo from Gillingham (2 miles away) which takes approximately two hours. There are superb road links with the A303 lying four miles to the north.

The area is renowned for its excellent schools which include a superb mixed comprehensive and sixth form college in Gillingham. Private schools in the area include Port Regis, St Mary's Shaftesbury, Sandroyd, Clayesmore, Bryanston, Sherborne Boys and Girls schools, Leweston, Bruton schools and Millfield.

Sporting facilities in the area include horse racing at Wincanton, golf at Shaftesbury, Sherborne and Yeovil, and the region’s water sports are within easy access along the Dorset coastline at either Poole Harbour or Weymouth Bay.

Outside
Approached via a sweeping driveway with fenced, clay fields to both sides as you drive up to the farmhouse, perfect for animals to graze. The current owners have historically had 100 sucker cow herd and horses in the paddocks. In more recent years the paddocks have also been mowed to produce hay. There is a separate water system that provides water to the troughs in all fields. There is ample hard standing for a number of vehicles and the house itself is surrounded to three sides by lawned gardens with a pretty rockery area. The gardens enjoy panoramic views out towards the 50 + acres of farmland. The three barns and stables are all set to one side of the property and the area has been well maintained with a central concrete base.
