Charming ring fenced West Dorset farm at the foot of Beaminster Down.
Chantry Hall which is not listed, is a most charming stone house and barn situated in a wonderful elevated position with views over the glorious West Dorset countryside towards the historic town of Beaminster and surrounded by its own land. The original house is thought to have been built in the 18th century but was later extended and now provides spacious quirky' accommodation over two floors with most notably a spacious drawing room with flagstone floor, double height ceiling, galleried walkway and a fine Hamstone fireplace, a second reception room with high ceiling and fireplace with wood burning stove and a Turret staircase leading to an impressive master suite with glorious views over the land belonging to the farm and countryside beyond that. There are three further bedrooms on the first floor and a study / bedroom five on the ground floor. Adjoining the house on the western boundary is an old stone barn which provides a boot room with WC and further spacious storage space which would undoubtedly be suitable for additional accommodation subject to the necessary consents.
The house is situated at the end of a quiet no through' road leading from the town, with the house and farmstead straddling the track and the land providing a ring fence. The house faces south with a large terrace and impressive water garden being the main feature to the front. The remainder of the garden wraps around the property and is mostly laid to lawn. Across the track there is a range of traditional and modern buildings suitable for a variety of uses (subject to planning where necessary). The land extends to approximately 66.52 acres of productive farmland, some of which rises to the rear of the house providing long range views and is interspersed with mature and newly planted woodland providing recreational and sporting interest.

I love the fact that the farm is just a mile from town and yet you feel like you are in the middle of the countrysideAshley Rawlings
