The Old Stables occupies a magnificent location in a peaceful environment within a parkland setting with views across the Stour Valley and just ten minutes from nearby town of Blandford Forum. Number 5 has undergone an extensive refurbishment programme and now boasts bright modern rooms, yet retains a huge amount of character and style.
The kitchen has been refitted with modern high gloss white units with integrated appliances and ample space for dining table and chairs. In the sitting room there is a high vaulted ceiling with exposed beams, and subtle lighting, two semi circular windows to the side allow the light to flood in and give far reaching views across the valley. A stair case leads up to a galleried study area which has been used as a guest bedroom in the past, 2 large walk in cupboards - one with plumbing in place for conversion to a shower room if desired.
On the ground floor there is a large reception hall, 3 double bedrooms, one with en-suite facilities, family bathroom and a traditional conservatory which gives access to the courtyard garden.
Immediately outside the conservatory is a secluded walled courtyard garden, this private area is ideal for barbeques and alfresco dining in the summer month. A door then leads through to the communal parkland gardens.
The Old Stables were built in 1832 and formed part of the original Langton Long Estate, the country seat of James Farquharson; a Regency mansion with impressive stable buildings.
Purchased in 1987 by a specialist developer who transformed the neglected buildings into ten individual and unique mews houses.The workmanship was of a high and exacting standard with great attention being paid to detail, the stables are Grade II Listed.
The hamlet comprises a cluster of houses and the church, conveniently located to Blandford town, just a mile away, while Wimborne is 9 miles distant.
