Elegant former carriage house having recently undergone a stunning high specification refurbishment, in a glorious rural setting.
Castle Hill which was believed to have been built around 1870, was formerly the coach house and stables to Duntish Court and is a most attractive building arranged in a courtyard with distinctive red brick elevations under a slate roof. Duntish Court was understood to have been built around 1760 and created by Sir William Chambers, but was demolished along with many other notable properties in the last century. Castle Hill forms part of the original grounds of Duntish Court and is situated in a glorious elevated position with fine views over its own paddock to the undulating West Dorset countryside beyond.
Over the last 2 years the property has undergone complete renovation and now provides an outstanding, high specification, contemporary conversion within this handsome period building.
The accommodation is principally arranged over two floors, the central portion being a magnificent double height living space incorporating kitchen, dining and living areas. The two storey wings on either side provide bedroom, work, storage and recreational space and the layout has been cleverly designed to provide flexible accommodation, suitable for sub diving into independent spaces if required, the north east corner having an independent access point.
The property is approached through lodge gates from the lane where there is a gate lodge in separate ownership. The long private drive which also serves the replacement dwelling to Duntish Court bears left to Castle Hill where there is gated access to an extensive, private gravelled area of parking around a planted turning circle. The gardens extend to the side and rear of the property and there are wonderful views towards Dungeon Hill and the surrounding countryside from a large terrace on south western flank of the building. The field, which is enclosed with elegant estate fencing extends to approximately 3.44 acres and on the northern boundary there is a small stable block with 3 loose boxes accessed if required via a second separate vehicular access further down the lane.
