  • Bedrooms: 4
A 4 BEDROOM DETACHED PERIOD FARMHOUSE ON A MAGNIFICENT SITE OF ABOUT 13 ACRES on high ground in the hamlet of Uppington, near Hinton Martell and Gaunts Common, and about 6 miles north of Wimborne Minster. The farmhouse, which we believe dates back to the late 19th century, is being offered for sale on the open market for the first time in over 60 years. A FURTHER 8 ACRES IS AVAILABLE BY SEPARATE NEGOTIATION. Uppington Farm is now in need of complete refurbishment and modernisation but offers great potential for extension, subject to planning consent. There may also be scope (subject to planning consent) to demolish the existing house and build a new family home.

Approached from the village road along a private, unmade track, Uppington Farm stands on an elevated site which offers one of the most stunning panoramic views in the area, stretching from the Isle of Wight in the east to Poole Harbour and the Purbeck Hills in the west. Wimborne Minster is within a 15 minute drive, and there is good access to the larger towns of Poole and Bournemouth, both of which have mainline rail links to London Waterloo.

The local 3-tier education system provides excellent schools, including First Schools in Gaunts Common and Witchampton, and Queen Elizabeth's School at Pamphill. The preparatory schools of Dumpton (at Furzehill) and Castle Court (at Corfe Mullen) are also close by, as are independent schools at Canford and Bryanston.

Uppington Farm represents an opportunity to acquire a period farmhouse which extends to nearly 2,500 square feet on a lovely, rolling site including a farmyard, gardens and paddocks with outstanding rural views.
