Estate Agent Description

Lot 1. A charming small-holding located in an enviable position with far reaching views and a range out outbuildings and barns. The whole property sits in nearly 10 acres.

Wilkins Farm comprises a traditional Grade II Listed stone farmhouse under a slate roof with a range of farm buildings set in approximately 10 acres of attractive pastureland. Wilkins Farm is being sold by Dorset Council, with the previous tenant having occupied the holding since 1968.
The farmhouse is a typical chocolate box design with a symmetrical front facade with front porch. The front door opens into a wide hallway with wooden stair and banister. Doors lead to the sitting room and drawing room located on either side of the hall. Both feature stone fireplaces and front and side windows. There are spectacular views across to Compton Abbas .
Along the corridor is an archway where there is a door to an under stairs cupboard and the cellar. Beyond this is the dining room to the left, kitchen to the right and a back door to the courtyard.
There are four good size bedrooms all accessed off the landing as well as a small bathroom. The southerly views from the first floor are far-reaching.

Cann is a hamlet located a short distance south of Shaftesbury. The historic, hilltop, Saxon town of Shaftesbury offers a vibrant High Street with a variety of national and independent retailers for your everyday needs including opticians, dentist, doctors and a cottage hospital. There are a selection of supermarkets nearby including Tesco, Asda and Waitrose. Communications are excellent with the A350 running from north to the south coast through the town and the A303 to London can be reached in around 10 minutes by car. The nearby towns of Gillingham and Tisbury include a mainline railway station with services from London Waterloo to the West Country. The area is well known for the large choice of good State and Independent primary and secondary schools and a variety of outdoor and countryside activities including golf, cycling, shooting and horse riding.

To the front of the property is a small garden mostly laid to lawn, partly enclosed by a beautiful stone wall and partly by post and wire fence. The garden sweeps around one side to the main drive. An area of tarmac lies to the other side adjacent to more lawn.

At the rear of the property, adjoining the house is a traditional, old stone bakery with brick floor and original bread oven. Adjacent to this is the old dairy room. These buildings, together with a stone outhouse form an enclosed courtyard that leads to the rear parking area via an iron gate. The stone outhouses are joined to the rear of the house by a covered walkway.
Farm buildings

The farm buildings have the benefit of their own separate entrance and lie to the north of the farmhouse. The majority of the buildings are centred around a concrete yard and are generally in a poor state of repair, giving an incoming purchaser the opportunity to develop and create a farmstead suitable for their own proposed use of the farm. The buildings comprise:
1. Two bay timber framed open fronted building with two stone sides under a corrugated roof.
2. Open fronted timber framed store under a corrugated roof with remains of adjoining store to one side.
3. Concrete block and brick stables and livestock pens under a fibre cement roof.
4. 3 bay open fronted pole barn under a corrugated roof and part corrugated sides.
5. Concrete block building under a corrugated roof,
6. 3 bay open fronted timber framed building under a corrugate roof with adjoining 2 bay store
7. 3 bay concrete framed Atcost barn with fibre cement roof and adjoining former lean to in a state of disrepair.
To the rear of the farm buildings is a slurry pit.

Lot 1 comprises 9.69 acres. The main parcel of land within Lot 1 lies to the west of the farmstead and comprises approximately 8 acres down to grass. The Grade 3 land slopes away from the road in a south westerly direction.
There is a separate paddock adjacent to the road of approximately half an acre.

Lot 2 ( Available seperately ) comprises a 2.17 acre paddock which benefits from its own separate access directly on to the A350. The paddock is down to grass with a small area of woodland at the western end of the parcel. A right of way is claimed by a neighbouring landowner to use the path running along the southern boundary of Lot 2 to access their land to the west. Further details are available from the vendor’s agents.

Wilkins Farm is sold subject to and with the benefit of all existing rights of way whether public or private, including wayleaves, easements, covenants, restrictions and obligations whether referred to specifically in these sale particulars or not.
