DESCRIPTION
Newlands Farm is a handsome Dorset Longhouse of Georgian
origins, believed to originally date from the 1750’s with later
additions. It is built of local stone under a slate roof with pretty Lattice front porch and is Listed Grade II. The house is currently arranged in two living parts with a 2 bed annex on the western end which has provided useful income from Airbnb. In 2014 the owners gained planning permission to build single story garden room to the east of the current utility / boot room (2/2014/0156/PLNG). This area has great potential to become a larger kitchen if required. Internally the house has real charm with an abundance of period features, including oak floors, exposed stonework and beams, open fireplaces and a bread oven. There are currently 5 bedrooms and 3 bath/shower rooms in total. Please see floor plans for room dimensions and layouts.

When the current owners originally purchased the property in
1983 they created what became a well-known plant nursery.
There is the potential and space to run a small holding or
make further changes to the variety of outbuildings (subject to planning). It has been a wonderful family home since the 1980’s and a great place for the owner to have her artist’s studio which is located opposite the house adjoining the northern boundary.

OUTSIDE
The property is approached from the lane through 5 bar gates
to a large gravelled parking and turning area. The extensive
gardens & grounds that extend to about 3.72 acres are an
undoubted feature of Newlands Farm.

At the front of the house is a pretty area of lawn flanked by
herbaceous borders and pleached limes. Beyond is a range of
outbuildings along the northern boundary which include the
studio and gallery with adjoining barn/cart shed and workshop. An attractive building with mellow stone elevations under a tile roof with potential for a variety of uses, subject to the necessary consents. To the east is an office building and further storage barn.

From the parking area lawns border the Blackwater Stream
(which runs all the way along the north & east boundary)
eventually joining the River Stour. The gardens contain a curated collection of over 70 types of mature specimen trees and shrubs. To the south is an orchard with trained apples and pears as well as a rhubarb patch, vegetable beds and greenhouse. Beyond is an area formerly used for nursery production which had a range of polytunnels, but now has a variety of sheds and wood stores, including a large area which could be turned back into an additional paddock. Further to the east is an establish area of woodland bordering a good sized paddock with field shelter. The whole is full of wild flowers and has become a haven for wildlife.
