Charming house with excellent equestrian facilities in about 8.75 acres

Whitehouse Farm occupies a private and secluded setting at the end of a long gravel no through road. The house and buildings benefit from beautiful views across the land and open countryside beyond towards The New Forest.

Whitehouse Farm was originally a pair of farm cottages which have been knocked together, to create a charming 3 bedroom family home full of character which has been extended and modernized over the years to meet the currents owner’s needs.

There is a gravel parking area at the front of the house. On the ground floor there is a useful Utility Room, open plan Kitchen and Dining Area, Garden Room, Snug and a ground floor Bedroom with an en suite Bathroom. On the first floor are two Bedrooms, Bathroom, Office and useful storage space, with potential to modernise and reconfigure.

At the rear of the house is a beautiful private garden with a red brick Studio, paved seating areas, ornamental pond and summer house.

Double garage used as a store with greenhouse and vegetable garden at the rear. The garage has the potential to be converted to an annex or office, subject to planning.

The equestrian facilities are first class and are centered around a large concrete yard with the benefit of mains water and electric. The facilities comprise:
1. Well maintained stable block with 6 large internal boxes and a stallion box plus feed room
2. 2 large red brick foaling boxes
3. Large hay barn with concrete floor and adjacent pole barn with hardcore floor

The land totals approximately 8.75 acres and is divided into manageable sized paddocks with post and rail fencing and mature hedgerows. This enables the paddocks to be rotated when used for grazing horses.

To the south of the buildings is a gently sloping paddock within which there is a charming spring fed pond.

There is a Pylon in the north east corner of the land for which a small annual payment is received.

Whitehouse Farm is located in a highly desirable and sought after area, close to the Cranborne Chase Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, between the villages of Cranborne and Alderholt.
