A wonderful renovation opportunity in the form of a pretty farmhouse in Wilshire which is being auctioned for the first time in 100 years
This Grade II listed farmhouse will delight seasoned developers and budding DIY enthusiasts.
Poles Farm was purchased on the Winton Estate in 1924 by the grandfather of the current owners and is being auctioned for the first time in almost 100 years via Symonds & Sampson at a guide price of £ 500,000.
Located in the Nadder Valley in the heart of Cranborne Chase in an area of outstanding natural beauty, the farm offers a wonderful opportunity to create a comfortable home in picturesque surroundings. Although the property “needs to be modernized and improved” it is fully functional and habitable, and therefore offers flexibility in how it is developed.
The property is made up of limestone under a slate roof and is approached by the pretty front garden enclosed by a gate with lawn edging. Located to the side of the property are a number of large outbuildings including some of the original farm dairy units all of which offer plenty of storage and refurbishment possibilities.
Towards the rear of the house is a stone summer house, beds of mature shrubs and a magnolia tree.
Inside, flagstone floors, an inglenook fireplace, and exposed beams are telltale signs of the property era, with the rest of the accommodation consisting of a kitchen – with an AGA, a dining room, a Victorian style living room, bathroom and skullcap. Upstairs, three bedrooms which overlook the surrounding countryside.
Poles Farm is being auctioned through Symonds & Sampson at a indicative price of £ 500,000 – see more photos, or inquire with agent for details.
