Property Description

A superb example of a fine country house can be found at Southwood Farm, located on a magnificent six acres of secluded ground, along one of the county’s most prestigious roads. The original house was part of Lord Wimborne's Estate and was the dairy and bakery for Canford School. The grounds offer a fabulous mix of formal lawns, woodland and paddocks with extensive stabling, ideal for the equestrian enthusiast.


The Approach
The property is approached through electric, remote control gates and a long sweeping drive, to a turn around circle and parking area with a central willow tree. There is garaging and two car ports for several cars and a workshop and store. The drive continues to the side and rear of the property to further ample parking.

Main House
This stunning home offers accommodation in excess of 8000 sq. ft, firstly comprising of the idyllic country, hand painted kitchen by Chalon, with a large central island and comfortable breakfast room with exposed beams, brick walls and stone floors with quality Travertine flooring throughout. There is also a preparation kitchen area with walk in freezer and separate pantry.

An adjoining orangery creates a delightful breakfast area allowing light to flood the room creating a bright eating area. The triple French doors open onto the picturesque courtyard which features an open fireplace. The formal drawing room and dining room have double opening French doors to the South West facing terrace.

First Floor
The first floor landing can be accessed via two staircases. On the first floor there is a magnificent master bedroom encompassing a luxury en-suite and walk-in dressing area. A large balcony from the bedroom gives superb views over the grounds. Two double bedrooms and two bathrooms are accessed from the first floor landing.

On the second floor is a very spacious office and further double bedroom with adjoining dressing area.

Annexe & Swimming Pool
The property boasts an impressive indoor swimming pool complex, finished to a high standard with a range of double opening French doors to a further terrace area. The complex can be accessed from the main house.

There is also direct access to a separate, self-contained cottage providing excellent guest accommodation. The cottage comprises a large living room, Chalon kitchen and Aga, two double bedrooms - both with en-suite, and a separate cloakroom. This is very much in keeping with the style and decor of the main house.

Gardens and Grounds
The six acres of grounds have a main barn and stables providing direct access onto the extensive bridle ways which stretch as far as Bear Cross via Canford Heath. The garden is laid to lawn and interspersed with trees. Beyond the lawns lies approximately 2.9 acres of mature woodland with natural flora and fauna, and pathways to the North side of the main house lead to a paddock of approximately 1.7 acres. The paddock has post and rail fencing, is well drained and has the benefit of mains water and electricity.
