For sale: 19th Century Country House & Ho(in need of refurbishment and with development potential)
This property would make an impressive country home or is perfect for a variety of business uses. It has a lot of charm, character and period features. Our family is very sad to see this place go, however due to a recent bereavement, it is no longer sustainable for us to keep.
The ground floor of the house has a large reception hall, three main reception rooms, two smaller lounges, a large industrial kitchen area and a bar leading out onto a patio area. There are 10 en-suite letting bedrooms on the first floor and two staff accommodation areas on the second floor.
The old events room (ground floor) has recently been converted into a modern self-contained flat (2 bed / 2 bathrooms) which is currently used as the owners accommodation.
The entire plot is around 6 acres and includes a walled garden, swimming pool and cricket pitch, the latter of which the village team hosts their home matches on throughout the summer months.
There are two letting bungalows on the site (combined current rental income of around £1350 pcm) and two stable blocks which are currently used for storage. We have discussed with a planning consultant the possibility of replacing the existing four structures to create 4/5 two storey residential units which could be individually sold or let. There is also the possibility of reconfiguring the internal layout of the main house for refurbishment or subdivision.
The property is situated in the village of Milton-on-Stour in North Dorset. The village church is directly opposite the main drive to the Lodge which has proved a convenient aspect for hosting weddings. Gillingham is the nearest town (2 miles away) which has all the expected amenities and supermarkets. The train station (10 minute drive) offers a direct train to both Clapham Junction and Waterloo.
