Incombe Farm sits in an idyllic position overlooking its own small lake, entirely private, and giving a feeling of security that comes from the ownership of the surrounding fields. The house is approached via a long private drive from the road above, creating a feeling of rural privacy, seclusion, and yet with Shaftesbury only 2.5 miles distant. The original farmhouse is a typical period Dorset farmhouse, constructed of greensand stone under a pitched slate roof. It was substantially extended in the early 1990’s to create a much larger family home. The reception rooms are well proportioned, particularly the drawing room which makes the most of the fantastic views down the valley and over the lake.
The master bedroom suite has the best all round views imaginable. There is further scope to extend into the roof space, subject to the necessary consents.
The property benefits from a two/three bedroom annexe, converted from the farm stables. This has proven very lucrative as a holiday let. The roof space above the garage has been converted into a large office.
The grounds are beautifully tended, and give the house an excellent setting. Laid mainly to lawn, they include a lake which is fed by several springs and well stocked by the owners. A range of beds and borders make for a more formal area of garden, framing the views beyond.
The driveway opens onto a large parking area in front of a double garage which is integrated into the annexe/office building, thus creating a useful courtyard adjacent to the house.
The grazing is well fenced and has running water throughout. Following the conversion of the old stables, wooden stables have been built and together with other useful outbuildings they complete this excellent small-holding.
