Toller Whelme, Beaminster DT8 3NU

Guide Price Of £2,100,000

Sold

An exquisite 16th Century Manor House in a magnificent secluded setting.

The Manor occupies a delightful setting in a small hamlet hidden away in the secluded downlands of West Dorset, yet only three miles from the attractive town of Beaminster. Toller Whelme is a charming hamlet comprising a church, The Manor and six other dwellings. It is approached from the Beaminster/Dorchester road (B3163) via a private road about a third of a mile in length. The Manor enjoys a delightful position facing due south, protected and sheltered lying in a slight hollow below the summit of the surrounding hills. There are colourful and well maintained gardens surrounding The Manor including lawns which run down to a lake fed by a spring which is the source of the River Toller. The surrounding countryside is beautifully unspoilt. Towns of note in the area include Beaminster (three miles), Crewkerne (eight miles) and Bridport (nine miles), all of which have an excellent variety of shopping, educational and cultural facilities with Crewkerne and Bridport both having Waitrose supermarkets. Communications in the area include a mainline railway station at Crewkerne with a regular service to London Waterloo and to Exeter.

The Manor which is Grade II* Listed as being of Architectural or Historic Importance, is constructed with mellowed stone elevations under a thatched roof of Norfolk Reed. Some areas of roof at the rear of the building are of slate. The front elevation was rethatched in water reed last Summer, with the rear elevation having been rethatched in 2005. The house offers most attractive accommodation of enormous charm with well proportioned rooms enjoying lovely views over the gardens. There are some fine stone mullioned windows, several attractive fireplaces and some beamed ceilings. At present the West Wing has a separate Council Tax banding and is let on an assured shorthold tenancy. The Wing is linked to the main house so these additional rooms could be incorporated into the main house if required. The house was rewired in 2005 and there is oil fired central heating. At the end of the West Wing is the Old Hall dating from the 15th Century which now comprises a magnificent studio with a high vaulted ceiling, a fireplace with woodburning stove and steps up to a mezzanine floor with WC and shower.
