Marsh Farmhouse, Margaret Marsh, Shaftesbury, Dorset


A traditional Grade II Listed stone built farmhouse dating back to 1640 with later extensions giving the property character and charm. The Farmhouse has been completely refurbished over the last 5 years including new thatching and tiles, windows replaced where needed, plaster and render replaced where needed and decoration throughout.

The kitchen was replaced in 2019 and provides a cosy yet spacious area for the family or guests to be whilst the chef is at work! The farmhouse has been finished to a high standard and is ready for the next occupants to move straight in. The refurbishment has been carefully carried out to not take away the character and charm of the property. The rooms are nicely presented and unusually, for a farmhouse naturally light. This is helped by the majority of them being double aspect.

The gardens wrap around the Farmhouse with different areas of interest. The front garden is mainly laid to lawn with a path leading to the front door, to the side is a larger lawned garden with flower beds and mature trees and hedging. There is an ornamental pond with a brook and an area that has been managed as a wild garden to entice wildlife in and provide a safe haven for them.

The swimming pool is heated and there is a wooden pool house. Next to the house is a stone barn split into a workshop and carport/garaging area. There is electricity to the barn so would be perfect for a utility if required but works perfectly as a workshop. There are two large timber buildings providing great storage or 4 stables. They are level paddocks with post and rail fencing or hedging on the boundary. In total the property amounts to 3.6 acres.

The two bedroom stone cottage has been used for family and guests but has huge potential as a holiday let should an income be required.
