The Hollies is an attractive period farmhouse believed to date from 1802 built of rendered elevations under a pitched slate roof and has been completely modernised throughout together with a substantial extension to the rear. The refurbishment includes a sympathetic blend of both traditional and modern day materials including oak flooring to the ground floor with attractive tiled kitchen breakfast room and a wonderful oak framed garden room with limestone flooring and doors leading to the fantastic south and west facing terrace.
The property is entered at the side leading to the entrance hall with understairs cupboard, attractive oak doors leading to the cloakroom and the kitchen breakfast room. The room has a wonderful outlook over the gardens with glazed double doors, excellent range of wall and floor units with wooden worktops incorporating white 1.5 bowl sink and island bar. There is plumbing and space for all appliances. Of particular note is the wonderful sitting room with attractive period fireplaces at either end including one with a wonderful oak beam, two sash windows looking over the front of the property with wooden window seats. Glazed double doors lead to the garden room with a fantastic outlook towards the garden and further glazed doors back to the family room with sash window and window seat overlooking the front of the property and door back to the sitting room.
An attractive oak staircase leads to the spacious landing with the five bedrooms leading off with a superb family bathroom with separate shower, tiled floor and Heritage sanitary ware. The master bedroom has a double aspect with en-suite bathroom with separate shower, again with Heritage sanitary ware, with a further bedroom having exposed timbers, two pairs of velux windows and an en-suite shower room. Overall the bright accommodation is extremely well arranged well suited to modern family day living.
The Hollies is set back from the road via a gravel parking and turning area with attractive brick wall and paving adjacent. The newly built oak barn style double garage has a room housing the boiler room with Grant oil fired boiler, Stelflow hot water cylinder and water softener. To the rear are the wonderful gardens gently sloping and open to the south and west and bordered on both sides by established hedging. At the far end are a number of fruit, deciduous and pine trees with the River Piddle on the western boundary.
The Hollies is situated on the northern side of the charming village of Piddletrenthide. The property is situated within a Conservation Area as well as an AONB. The village itself has a Church, two public houses, primary school and a shop. The village is conveniently placed midway between the historic Abbey town of Sherborne and the County town of Dorchester, both of which provide a comprehensive range of cultural, recreational, shopping and educational amenities. The surrounding countryside provides many walking and riding opportunities whilst the World Heritage Coast is within a comfortable motoring distance. Road links are along the A303 joined at Wincanton to the north, whilst there is a mainline railway station at Sherborne with a regular service to London/Waterloo and at Dorchester linking to London and Southampton via the South Coast Line and the Weymouth to Bristol line.
