About this property

  • Peace & Plenty is a charming, detached country property with brick and flint elevations under a slate roof, likely to have been built in the early 19th century. In recent years the house has been extended, now providing spacious, well laid out accommodation with character and charm and some good rooms, of particular note including the generous reception hall, large sitting room with vaulted ceiling and excellent dining room. Some of the rooms retain nice character features such as stripped wood floors and exposed beams and the sitting room and dining room share a large double sided fireplace and wood stove. The house is light and airy and most of the rooms on ground and first floor have views over the garden and beyond to the glorious, rolling Dorset countryside.

    The property is approached from the lane where a private drive sweeps round to a large area of parking in front of a recently built barn providing garaging or shelter for livestock, as well as an artist's studio and WC. To the south of the house is a paddock enclosed by attractive post and rail fencing and an avenue of trees slopes gently down through the middle of the field to the free flowing River Frome, perhaps the ideal spot for a Shepherds Hut (STP). The backdrop to the paddock is a patchwork quilt of fields and woodland and to the south east is the church tower in Cattistock. The gardens are to the south and west of the house with a large south facing terrace enjoying the view. The pretty garden is enclosed and host to a wealth of mature shrubs, plants and trees. To the north is a separate access to the lane.

How lovely to have the River Frome running through at the bottom of the paddock.
