Barn House is a handsome family home offering over 3,500 sqft. of flexible, light-filled accommodation arranged over two floors. This barn conversion cleverly combines the amenities of modern living with a wealth of retained period features including some exposed stone walls and ceiling beams.

The ground floor accommodation opens from a welcoming reception hall into an expansive central double-height drawing room with a galleried landing over. There are exposed stone walls, a central feature fireplace with wood burning stove and a large picture window overlooking the front garden with French doors to the rear terrace. Set back from the drawing room is a well-proportioned rear aspect study with double doors which lead to a spacious glazed conservatory with a vaulted ceiling, flagstone flooring and French doors to the rear terrace. The whole combining to create an ideal family and entertaining space.

The ground floor accommodation is completed to one side of the drawing room by a large triple aspect kitchen/dining room with a useful neighbouring fitted utility/boot room with a large double larder cupboard, further storage and a cloakroom/shower room with a door to the integral double carport with rear potting shed attached. The kitchen offers a range of bespoke units with a large freestanding central island, a gas-fired AGA, space for a good-sized table and a door to the front aspect terrace.

To the other side of the drawing room there is a bedroom wing with an inner hall with useful storage, two well-proportioned bedrooms, both with built-in storage and large feature arched sash windows, and a family bathroom. The first floor is accessible via two separate staircases at each end of the drawing room. The first of which opens into a spacious vaulted principal bedroom with dressing area with en-suite bathroom and vanity unit. The second area above the ground floor bedrooms is a flexible space and could be used as a further bedroom or as a large playroom or studio.

Located in the Cranborne Chase Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Ashmore is a lovely rural village set around a circular pond or “mere” which gave the village its original name of Ashmere. The highest village in the county, Ashmore features numerous thatched stone cottages and farms together with a church. The nearby village of Ludwell offers a village shop with Post Office, butcher and farm shop with more extensive shopping and leisure facilities available in Shaftesbury and Blandford Forum.

Slightly further afield, the cathedral city of Salisbury provides an excellent range of independent and High Street stores with a range of shopping centres together with extensive leisure and cultural facilities including a theatre, cinema, arts centre, library, leisure centre and numerous restaurants, cafés and public houses.
