Property Summary

A beautifully restored barn set in a wonderful location with panoramic views and the opportunity to purchase additional land



DESCRIPTION

Grange Farm is a charming conversion of a former agricultural barn, which has been tastefully extended and restored. An undoubted feature of the property is it’s superb location with panoramic views. It is constructed of a mixture of mellow stone & brick elevations clad with wisteria under a tile roof and is not listed. Internally, it presents beautifully with a superb flow and layout for modern family living with tiled floors throughout the ground floor and underfloor heating. The kitchen / breakfast room has wonderful large windows & French doors to take advantage of the views. There are a range of marble topped cupboards and central island, fitted fridge, dishwasher, Neff double oven and induction hob. The Utility / boot room has a further range of cupboards / storage and an oil fired Aga.

On the first floor the master bedroom has the east facing wall completely taken up by large windows enjoying magnificent views and morning light, together with an en-suite shower room. There are a further two bedrooms, one with en-suite shower and a family bathroom.



OUTSIDE

Grange Farm is approached from the lane over a gravel driveway flanked by low dry stone wall and stone entrance piers to a gravel parking and turning circle beside the west elevation. The gardens are mainly laid to lawn with a variety of shrubs and specimen trees, bordered by mature hedging. A flagstone terrace surrounds the house, ideal for al-fresco dining and enjoying the views. A garage / carport has been recently built in keeping with the barn which has potential to create a room above (subject to planning). Included with the house is a good sized paddock which in all extends to about 3.82 acres. This has water and is partly bordered by hedging. The new owner will be required to fence the south east facing boundary. In the north west corner of the field is a useful 4 bay agricultural barn with an area of hard standing.



LOT 2

To the south is a further 17.5 acres of pasture which is available in addition. This comprises two fields one with a pond. A public footpath flanks the eastern boundary of the larger field and diagonally bisects the smaller field towards Martin’s copse.



SITUATION

Grange Farm is situated in superb rural location about ¾ mile west of Templecombe with panoramic views. Templecombe has many amenities to offer, including the mainline railway station (London Waterloo from 2 hours 6 minutes), post office, welcoming community café and forthcoming Co-op store. There is also village Church, primary school and doctor’s surgery with dispensary, and the village hall offers space for community clubs (bowls, youth, mums & toddlers), while the recreation ground has a tennis court and skate park. A big attraction of Templecombe is its accessibility, being situated close to both the A303 and the A30 with fast routes east and west towards the motorway network.

The mainline station is an obvious draw, while local comprehensive shopping, cultural and leisure amenities are found close by in the towns of Sherborne, Bruton, Shaftesbury and Yeovil. To the south, the World Heritage Jurassic coast is within easy striking distance. The area is renowned for its schools, both independent and state. The surrounding

countryside, much of which is an area of outstanding natural beauty, is a playground for sporting and leisure pursuits such as walking, riding, cycling, golf and field sports. There are village cricket clubs close by and sailing and other watersports are readily accessible on the south coast.
