SITUATION AND AMENITIES
Frogmore Farm is an idyllic traditional Dorset farmstead which sits in its own private valley at the heart of the Jurassic Coast. In an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and enjoying simply glorious views across the surrounding countryside, Lyme Bay and Golden Cap. The farmhouse, believed to date back to the 1700s, cottage and buildings sit at the heart of the land and therefore offer a high degree of privacy. The southern boundary is adjacent to National Trust land which goes to the coast at Eype and Seatown.DESCRIPTION
The property comprises; the main farmhouse (stone elevations beneath a slate roof), adjacent to which is a separate cottage currently run as a successful holiday let but which could also be suitable for a relative. It would also be possible to convert the property back to one residence should one wish (STRC). The main house offers charming accommodation including; a large farmhouse kitchen with gas Rayburn, a dining room and a sitting room with fireplace housing a wood burner with back boiler. There is also a large utility/ boot room and ground floor shower room. On the first floor of the main house are four double bedrooms, two with en suite, and a family bathroom. In addition there is a stunning upstairs sitting room (with small bedroom to side) ideally positioned to enjoy the views.
The attached cottage comprises; sitting room, farmhouse kitchen, two double bedrooms (one with en suite) and a family bathroom. There are also double doors on the landing which lead to the view room which enjoys stunning vistas. Opposite the main house is a detached stone barn with workshop and stairs to the first floor where there is a large office with shower room. Attached to the main barn is a two room studio with shower room. Further outbuildings include a timber stable block with three loose boxes and a tack room, a large stone barn/ former diary (which is at the top of the drive) a further detached barn, two storage rooms and a summer house with separate WC. The property is positioned so that the main living accommodation enjoys the simply stunning views. The outbuildings lend themselves to a variety of uses, subject to relevant consents and imagination.OUTSIDE
Frogmore Farm is approached from the A35 via the private driveway. This sweeps down the hill, through the private land, giving one the first taste of Frogmores stunning position. The driveway leads to a parking area at the property where there is space and parking for a large number of vehicles. Various outbuildings are set out along the driveway including the former dairy at the top (potential to convert STRC),then the timber stable block on the left, followed by a three bay stone open garage and a three bay wooden closed garage halfway down the drive and the main barn opposite the house, almost creating your own hamlet. Formal gardens sit to the West of the main house and buildings and are laid to terraced lawns; in addition there is a large productive vegetable garden. The land totals 80.35 acres comprising predominantly of pasture land, with two large areas of woodland (see the land plan).
There are two footpaths, one leading down the drive, which the vendors have been led to believe can be diverted and one crossing the top field and top of the drive, well away from the house.DIRECTIONS
