Brog Street, Corfe Mullen, Wimborne, Dorset BH21 3HB

£1,275,000 via Christopher Batten, Wimborne: 020 3889 5964

A most unusual opportunity to acquire 2 beautiful Grade II detached Georgian buildings set in grounds of over 0.4 of an acre in a quiet country lane, with 5-car garaging, at the edge of the village of Corfe Mullen.

Dating back to between 1780 and 1815, The Coach House and The Granary began life as a keeper’s cottage and stables for the Glendon Estate, once owned by the Viceroy of India, which was sold and re-developed circa 2010.

The Coach House is connected to all mains services and has rendered and brick elevations, a slate roof (with 2 brick chimneys) and wrought iron railings to the front.

The ground floor comprises an entrance hall with oak floorboards, a delightful sitting room (with fireplace, dado panelling and farmland and courtyard views), a charming dining room with a floor-to-ceiling fireplace (with adjacent bread oven), a ground floor cloakroom, and a magnificent kitchen/living room with high vaulted ceiling, exposed A-framed timbers, and 2 delightful original semi-circular windows. There are 2 first floor bedrooms, an en suite shower room and a fully tiled bathroom.

The Granary has a ground floor kitchenette, bedroom and shower room, and a magnificent triple aspect first floor sitting room with a high vaulted ceiling and superb views over farmland. It has solid brick elevations, a natural slate roof, an impressive weathervane and a red postbox to the front. It is connected to mains electricity, water and gas, and has septic tank drainage (but could be connected to mains drainage.)

Both buildings are brimming with character and original features.

From Brog Street, brick piers provide an entrance to a walled shingle driveway leading to a 5-car garage block of brick construction with a slate roof, 2 double garages and an adjacent single garage. The grounds, which extend to over 0.4 of an acre, include a pretty cobbled courtyard, a largely walled formal rose garden area and a small grass paddock which has several original fruit trees (5 apple and 1 pear) and a superb open view over the surrounding countryside. There is access to the adjacent gravel lane.
