This Grade II listed Georgian farmhouse, which is believed to date from the 18th century, is located within the conservation area of Sydling St Nicholas. It lies in an unspoilt, rural Dorset chocolate-box village near Dorchester, surrounded by some beautiful rolling countryside. There are some great footpaths and bridleways, so ideal for exploring the local area on foot. This semi-detached property offers a thatched roof and a pretty, small stream running through the front garden with a little wooden footbridge to cross to enter the property. It really is the ideal Dorset countryside retreat. The owners have carefully refurbished the property to a modern standard, whilst maintaining some of the original features to create a luxurious and comfortable living environment ideal for families and couples.
There is so much to do in this popular area of Dorset. Be sure to take advantage of the property's close proximity to the UNESCO World Heritage Jurassic Coast. Cerne Abbas and the famous Cerne Abbas Giant are just 2 miles from Rock Farmhouse, whilst Maiden Newton is 4 miles away and has a train station. The county town of Dorchester, known as Thomas Hardy town, is 8 miles and is home to some Roman relics and the pioneering architectural royal development of Poundbury. There are also many museums, restaurants, shops and Brewery Square. Why not visit Weymouth with its golden sandy beach and Georgian harbour front, or the Isle of Portland, home to the sailing at the 2012 London Olympics and water sports venue? You can visit Sherborne with its two castles, or further afield, perhaps enjoy a day out at Monkey World, the Tank Museum, Lulworth Cove or Durdle Door. Beach 12 miles. Shop 2 miles, pub and restaurant 500 yards.|
