An exceptional Grade II listed farmhouse with annexe, garaging and far-reaching views over the Cranborne Chase.
Jervoise Farm is a wonderful Grade II listed farmhouse, believed to date from the 1700s with later additions. It was substantially extended and sympathetically refurbished by the current owners in 2014, creating the perfect combination of a characterful period house with modern services, including underfloor heating in the extension. From its elevated position, the property enjoys stunning south facing views over the beautiful Cranborne Chase.
The house is extremely light throughout with large windows, especially noticeable in the kitchen/dining room, which has full floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors. Jervoise Farm is full of period features typical of a house of this age, including high ceilings, exposed beams, fireplaces, elm floor boards and a wide wooden staircase.
The downstairs accommodation is accessed from the central hallway. To the rear of house is the fabulous kitchen/dining room, with a sitting room on the far side of the two-way Stuv wood burner. Large full-height sliding doors open out from the dining area onto the south-facing terrace and garden. The kitchen has an excellent number of cupboards, a large central island with breakfast bar and integrated appliances. There is also a 3-oven Total Control Aga with a 2-oven electric module.
Accessed from the kitchen is the elegant drawing room, which has a very impressive inglenook fireplace with bread oven and a deep storage cupboard to the right of the fireplace. A further reception room is currently used as a large study, again with a fireplace and bespoke
bookshelves. There is also a fitted boot room, two cloakrooms, utility room with a safe cupboard and there are two cellar rooms below.
On the first floor is the principal bedroom, with an A-framed vaulted ceiling and stunning views. There is a walk-in dressing room with lots of storage and an en suite bathroom with separate shower. There are three further bedrooms, one with an en suite bathroom, a family bathroom, the laundry room and a large linen cupboard. On the second floor are two further bedrooms and a bathroom.
The drive leads through electric gates to the front and side of the house, where there is extensive gravelled parking and a three bay timber garage, with a room above which is currently being used as a gym. There is an electric charging station to one side. There is also a workshop and wood store. An area of hard standing provides some useful space for machinery and storage.
To the left of the property is The Bothy, which provides a separate one bedroom annexe, comprising a living area with kitchenette, mezzanine sitting room, double bedroom and bathroom. The Bothy has been successfully let as a holiday rental.
The main garden is to the rear of the house with a wide swathe of lawn and a stand of mature beech trees. Adjacent to the house is a large terrace and well stocked flower beds. There is also an excellent kitchen garden with fruit cages and several fruit trees. A belt of woodland also houses a large treehouse.
The timber-framed barn has a solid concrete floor and provides ample garden and machinery storage, whilst there is also a field shelter within the nearest of the three paddocks. The paddocks interlink and have water troughs. In total the land extends to about seven acres.
