  The Detail...

Stylishly restored in 2017 this beautiful detached barn conversion is situated in the rural village of Melbury Abbas amid glorious Dorset countryside, boasting countryside views from the accommodation and gardens.

We are now delighted to welcome this fantastic home into our stylish and sought-after collection of Joules properties. The superb open-plan kitchen/diner will now have Joules quintessentially British crockery for mealtimes with other lovely accents peppered throughout the house.

Situated in the heart of Dorsets beautiful landscape of rolling hills and open farmland affording wonderful walking, there are a network of footpaths directly from the property. The area offers a wealth of pretty villages, sandy beaches and a coastline which has world heritage status. The pretty market town of Shaftesbury, which itself is home to Gold Hill, known to many as Hovis Hill as it was used in the 70s television adverts for Hovis bread, is 5 minutes away. The popular seaside resorts of Poole, Bournemouth and Weymouth are worth a visit. Other attractions include Hayes Motor Museum, Longleat House and Safari Park, the beautiful gardens at Stourhead House, Salisbury Cathedral, Yeovilton Air Arm Museum and Monkey World.

Entering the property from the enclosed terrace you are met by a beautiful lounge/kitchen/diner with an impressive apex ceiling, exposed beams, sliding doors and oak flooring. Here you can relax and enjoy the countryside views while snuggled up in front the wood burner. Enjoy watching your favourite programme on the Smart TV or take time to enjoy a DVD.

The impressive kitchen is very well equipped and is perfect to try out some new recipes or cook some old family favourites using the breakfast bar/island. The kitchen has an electric oven and hob, Lavassa coffee machine, microwave, fridge with ice compartment and dishwasher. The utility room has a fridge/freezer, washing machine and plenty of space for storing muddy boots.
