Range Of Outbuildings
Rural Setting


THE AGENT SAYS... Standing in a plot of approximately 2.5 acres, with paddocks, greenhouse and outbuildings, Holywell Farm is a lovely size for a smallholding. With its wide bargeboards, lime render and gable nials, the property is a very pretty example of a Victorian farmhouse. Inside, rich colours, picture rails, original flagstone floors and elegant fireplaces add to the period charm. The accommodation comprises: four double bedrooms, large family bathroom, shower room, small study, two receptions, farmhouse kitchen and utility. Outside, part of the original brick farm buildings have been converted into a spacious, one bedroom, self-contained annexe which offers flexible, additional accommodation. There is also a garage, workshop and outbuilding, with a vast amount of attic storage above. Situated in the rural Dorset hamlet of Holywell, surrounded by beautiful, verdant pastures, the property offers quiet country living but with easy access to the A37 and A303.

THE PROPERTY
Ground Floor

An attractively weathered, solid wooden door leads into the lobby which protects the entrance hallway from the elements. From the hallway, doors open to the sitting room on the left and dining room on the right. Stairs rise ahead to the first oor.

The inviting sitting room, with its large feature fireplace and log burner, is perfect for cosy winter evenings. On warmer days, French doors open out to a lovely patio area overlooking the large, well maintained lawn to the side of the property.

The dining room is a really good size, being almost square, and lovely and bright thanks to its large windows and double aspect. There is an attractive period fireplace and a picture rail runs around the room.

At the end of the hallway a door leads through into a light and spacious rear hall. Ahead is a door out to the annexe and outbuildings, to the left is the kitchen and to the right the utility.

The kitchen has modern fitted units but retains its farmhouse feel with a Rayburn stove, chunky wooden worktops, ceramic sink, original flagstone floors and an informal dining table. A Victorian style ceiling clothes drying rack adds further character.

The large utility is well-appointed with a Belfast sink, worktop space and plenty of built-in storage.

First Floor

Upstairs there are four double bedrooms, large family bathroom, shower room and a small study/craft room. An original fireplace adds character to bedroom 4.

Self-Contained Annexe

To the rear of the property, part of the original farm buildings have been converted to provide a self-contained annexe, workshop, garage and storage space. Immediately next to the house is a gardeners toilet and the boiler room. The one bedroom annexe is a generous size with a sitting/dining room, separate kitchen, shower room and double bedroom. In front of the annexe is a charming brick well and old hand pump. Paved paths lead across the gravel to the gardeners toilet and annexe.

Next to the annexe is a good size single garage, a similar size workshop, and a large outbuilding. Above and running the length of these three spaces is a huge attic storage room, nearly 50ft long, which is accessed via interior stairs in the outbuilding.

GARDENS AND GROUNDS
The property sits surrounded by its grounds of circa 2.5 acres. The front of the property is separated from the road by a stone wall on one side of the entrance gate and estate fencing to the other. Entry to the driveway is via a timber 5-bar gate which has a small pull-in area in front of it. The sweeping gravel driveway runs up the side of the house and there is a turning circle in front of the annexe/outbuildings. Beyond this the driveway leads away from the property, parallel to the road and is anked by large expanses of lawn. At the end is a parking area and two paddocks, one of which has a barn.

Behind the annexe and outbuildings is a large area of hardstanding, with a greenhouse, sheds and beehives. Post and wire fencing separates this area and the rest of the property from the open farmland beyond. Near the greenhouse is a productive vegetable plot and around the grounds are apple, pear, cherry, plum and cider apple trees.

To the left hand side of the property, is a large, well-maintained lawn and patio area. At the rear of this lawn, just behind the property, is a freestanding swimming/plunge pool.

SURROUNDING AREAS
The hamlet of Holywell is located approximately midway between Yeovil and Dorchester on the A37 and is within easy commuting distance of both. Local amenities are available in the nearby village of Evershot, which has a pub, village shop/post ofce, bakery, doctors’ surgery, primary school, church and hotel with spa. Dorchester, Yeovil and nearby Sherborne all have mainline rail stations and the A303 can be joined to the North at Sparkford, giving good access back to London and the Home Counties along the A303/M3 route. The local area boasts a number of highly regarded independent and state schools. To the South lies the open countryside of the Dorset Downs, which is for the most part designated an AONB, and beyond is the famous Jurassic coast.

DIRECTIONS
Travelling from Yeovil to Dorchester on the A37, take the right hand turning to Evershot/Holywell and the property will be found on the right hand side just over the bridge.

SERVICES
Oil fired central heating. Mains electricity and water. Cesspit drainage. The main house and annexe run off the same services.
