Charming barn conversion in a glorious rural setting.
White Hill Barn was in fact constructed about 15 years ago although the original barn, probably dating to the 18th century, started its life in Hereford. The barn was transported to Dorset and re-constructed in this glorious rural location at the foot of Bulbarrow Hill and later further extended to provide what is now just over 3000 sq ft of charming, characterful accommodation. The barn has rustic brick and timber clad elevations under a clay tiled roof and is constructed on an east, west axis giving the main rooms a south facing aspect and the large windows on the south elevation not only provide solar gain, but stunning rural views. Inside the house has some wonderful character and some impressive spaces. The first impression is the spacious reception hall with double height, floor to ceiling rustic, exposed brick wall. From here stairs lead to the first floor and a ground floor studio or bedroom and a bathroom. The main reception room on the ground floor has some wonderful exposed timber beams, part stripped wood floor, part flag stone, white washed exposed brick walls and a wood burning stove. The adjoining kitchen and breakfast room are equally charming, awash with exposed timber and flooded with light from the double aspect windows. The first floor provides a principal bedroom with en suite, a further double bedroom and shower room and the piece de resistance is the magnificent studio or solar' with cathedral like exposed timber A-frame roof. Spiral steps from the studio lead up to a mezzanine level or snug.
The barn is approached from the north via a private drive that sweeps round to the property through a level paddock in permanent pasture and with some fine mature trees including Beech, Horse Chestnut and Oak. The drive splits to the west where there is access to an attractive oak framed double covered car port clad in timber with a tiled roof. The boundary of the plot which extends to just over 2 acres is enclosed with mature hedging and in part post and rail fencing. The plot is largely bordered by open farmland which provides the views which are such a major feature at White Hill Barn. To the south and east the ground rises towards Bulbarrow Hill, an impressive local land mark from where there a breathtaking views over the patchwork quilt of the Blackmore Vale. On the south side of the barn is a rustic flagstone terrace and decorative cobbled stone crescent. An old stone wall leads to the southern boundary.
