    About this property

    • SUMMARY: Park Farm is an extremely attractive stone farmhouse and buildings sitting in a rural yet accessible location to the north of the market town of Shaftesbury and west of the village of Hindon. The present owners have carried out an extensive renovation of the farmhouse and conversion of a number of outbuildings to create the superb family home and business it is today. The farmhouse is Grade II listed and has a classical façade with beautifully presented and well-proportioned reception rooms and family accommodation.

      The property sits around two courtyards, with a large period barn dividing the family accommodation and outbuildings from the holiday cottages which sit in their own courtyard garden. The land includes areas of pasture and a large parcel of well managed deciduous woodland.

      PARK FARM:
      The farmhouse has been comprehensively restored and renovated by the current owners within the last 10 years to include re-wiring, re-plumbing, re-roofing and re-configuring the kitchen area as well as upgrading the interiors throughout the house whilst maintaining its wonderful period features and
      charm.

      The front door opens into a reception hall with a wonderful blue lias stone floor and staircase leading to the first floor. The drawing room and dining room sit at the front of the house and are both beautifully proportioned rooms with sash windows, working fireplaces and a southerly aspect over the formal
      gardens. The blue lias stone continues through the dining room and into the rear hall beyond. The kitchen/breakfast room is beautifully designed with handmade cabinets under marble worktops and an electric Aga. There is a cosy adjoining sitting room with a wood-burning stove. A utility room provides
      additional storage space and links to the secondary staircase. There is a boot room with an adjoining shower room and a back door to an enclosed courtyard garden.

      On the first floor there are three principal bedrooms, a family shower room and a study, which is linked via the secondary staircase to the ground and second floors. The principal bathroom is located on the second floor, directly above the main bedroom. There are two further bedrooms on this floor, sharing
      a ‘Jack and Jill' shower room, a second floor sitting room or study and a further landing study area.

      THE OLD STABLES:
      The Old Stables is a superb secondary property converted by the present owners with great care and attention to detail. The glazed front door opens directly into a fabulous open plan living space with a wood-burning stove and French windows giving open views over the pretty courtyard garden. The adjoining kitchen is beautifully designed with handmade cabinets, an induction hob and double oven and there is a utility room and cloakroom beyond. The first floor landing provides a useful study area and there are two double bedrooms, the larger with an en suite bathroom and dressing area and the other with an en suite shower room.

      COW DROVE AND BARN OWL:
      Cow Drove and Barn Owl are a pair of beautifully appointed cottages converted from former farm buildings and sitting within their own courtyard. They have their own driveway from the lane if required and have a dedicated parking area with an EV charger. To the front of the cottages the gardens have been beautifully landscaped with gravel paths and formal planting. Cow Drove has a charming covered veranda/dining area running the length of the courtyard. Internally both cottages have a spacious open plan living area with a well-appointed kitchen. Barn Owl has a double bedroom with en suite shower room and Cow Drove an en suite bathroom. Details on income can be obtained from the selling agent.

      OUTBUILDINGS:
      A large steel-framed open barn sits to the west of The Old Stables which currently contains two loose boxes, a secure tack room and the plant room containing the biomass boiler and there is further space for livestock pens or other storage as required. An adjacent stable block has recently been reroofed
      and contains a further two loose boxes and an adjoining machinery store. A large period stone barn sits on the east side of the main courtyard. Planning permission was previously in place to convert part of it into a further holiday cottage and it may have potential for a range of uses subject to the necessary planning consents. Further outbuildings include a range of former piggeries now used for garden storage and a former cider store.

      GARDENS, PASTURE AND WOODLAND:
      The formal gardens are found to the front of the farmhouse and are laid to lawn with beautifully stocked herbaceous borders and some particularly fine roses. There is a large formal courtyard garden to the front of ‘Cow Drove' and ‘Barn Owl' and ‘The Old Stables' also has an extremely pretty terrace with
      borders of lavender and perennials. A kitchen garden with raised beds and fruit cages sits at the south east of the property and there is a small orchard. There are two parcels of pasture to the south-east and southwest of the property, the larger of which is divided into two paddocks. Both are stock-fenced and have a water supply. To the far south-west an arboretum of native trees has been planted in recent years. Deciduous woodland covers the bank to the north of Park Farm and easily accessed via a choice of track, including in a 4x4 vehicle. It is well managed and provides a beautiful area of amenity land and a haven for wildlife.
