AN ATTACHED GRADE II LISTED HOUSE WITH ELEGANT ACCOMMODATION AND PLENTY OF PERIOD CHARM, A PRETTY SOUTH FACING GARDEN AND CONVERTED BARN.
Dairy Farmhouse is an absolute gem. Constructed of local rubble stone elevations under a tiled roof, the Georgian double fronted façade brims with classical symmetry where large south facing sash windows with working shutters flank the front door with fanlight over.
The front rooms are all of a lovely proportion and the property becomes more cosy to the rear, with a well fitted farmhouse style kitchen and snug. Moulded doors, open fireplaces and an oil fired range provide the period and lifestyle detail, while the wide corridors on both ground and first floors offer plenty of elegant space.
An added dimension is the second floor, comprising a flexible landing room and ensuite loft bedroom, perfect for overflow accommodation or a teenage den.
A two-storey converted barn lies to the side of the driveway entrance, utilised as office space with a separately metered electricity supply, telecom and night storage heating, but easily adaptable as storage or ancillary accommodation, subject to the provision of further services and the necessary consents.
The pretty garden is a delight, well planted on two levels and south facing, with an arbor and summer house, while the kitchen opens on to a small rear area used for herb beds.
There is parking for several vehicles both within and outside double wrought iron gates leading to the road.
Dairy Farmhouse is conveniently situated in the centre of this rural village and is well placed for the many amenities on offer, including the mainline railway station (London Waterloo 2hrs), post office, welcoming community café and forthcoming Co-op convenience store. There is the 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, Wincanton, 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 and 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.
Services Mains water, electricity and drainage, oil fired central heating.
