A traditional 4 bedroom detached Dorset Longhouse with OUTSTANDING VIEWS TOWARDS THE PURBECK HILLS, set in a quiet country lane on the fringe of the popular village of Lytchett Matravers.
The original part of Holly Farm House is believed to date back over 300 years and, although it has been substantially extended and now amounts to over 2600 feet, the property retains much of its character and is presented in truly excellent decorative condition.
The house offers complete privacy from the road and stands in SUPERB GARDENS AND GROUNDS OF ABOUT 1.3 ACRES INCLUDING A PADDOCK.
All principal rooms overlook the gardens and countryside beyond, and the house benefits from modern A-rated flush sash windows.
Situated about 5 miles from Poole town centre, Lytchett Matravers has a primary school, a doctors’ surgery, a library, pubs, bus services, a parish church (believed to date back to around 1200,) and shops including a Tesco Express, a pharmacy and a butcher’s. The coastal resorts of Poole and Bournemouth have mainline railway stations to London Waterloo.
A spacious conservatory entrance leads into a square entrance hall and an inner hallway giving access to the main, dual aspect living room which has a stone open fireplace and sliding doors to the gardens and swimming pool terrace.
A separate sitting room (with wood burning stove) overlooks the garden, and the large kitchen/breakfast room has a comprehensive range of fitted units and appliances. There is also a small study and cloakroom on the ground floor.
The first floor landing has 2 large picture windows and leads to a large, triple aspect master bedroom, an en suite bath/shower room, 3 further double bedrooms and a family bath/shower room.
Outside there is an integral double garage with 2 doors and a hobbies/games room above. The gardens surround the property and are laid to lawn with flower and shrub beds and a (capped) fresh water well which used to supply water to the house.
The outdoor swimming pool is set in a spacious terrace and heated by an independent oil fired boiler (in a timber pump room.)
The driveway provides parking for several vehicles. The adjacent paddock benefits from a field shelter, a mains water supply and post-and-rail fencing, and can be accessed both from the garden and from Bartoms Lane.
Holly Farm House has private drainage and is connected to mains electricity and water.
