  • Bedrooms: 3
A charming 4 bedroom home with attached barn with planning permission for conversion to another substantial home. Courtyard setting with allocated parking. Enclosed gardens with countryside views. EPC Band D


Buzzards Mew the property forms part of a small, select courtyard adjacent to the as yet unfinished Tawny Owl Barn, giving the incoming purchaser a unique opportunity to acquire what can be made into two substantial, adjoining houses; an arrangement which would be ideal to allow extended families to live as closely or independently as desired. Having been converted to great effect in the late 20th century, Buzzards Mew is a marvellous family home which offers spacious and comfortable accommodation throughout, interlaced with elements of charming character. The spacious accommodation, which is arranged in a simple, classical layout over two floors, includes a farmhouse-style kitchen/breakfast room, two interlinking reception rooms and 4 generous bedrooms, the largest of which benefits from an ensuite bathroom. To the rear is a wonderful enclosed courtyard which is primarily laid to gravel and enjoys a sunny aspect, making this a superb place to relax or dine al fresco. The property also benefits from parking for two cars in the courtyard to the front.


Adjoining Buzzards Mew, Tawny Owl Barn offers wonderful scope to create another substantial home alongside the existing comfortable family home. Planning permission has been granted to convert this as yet undeveloped building which will offer spacious accommodation arranged over two floors. Measures have already been taken to commence the conversion project, thus protecting the planning permission for expiry and allowing a new owner to complete the project in their own time. The resulting property will benefit from a charming walled garden, and it is thought that the creation of a new, independent driveway from the access road might be possible.


The property is accessed via a right of way across the access road and central courtyard which are owned by a neighbouring property.


Planning Permission for the conversion of Tawny Owl Barn was granted historically and is therefore not visible on the Dorsetforyou planning portal.
