The Hollies is a handsome house which dates back to the 1840s and is charmingly typical of its period. Constructed of painted elevations under a partly slate and tiled roof it provides generous accommodation which is well planned and laid out. The property has undergone a programme of updating recently and is now presented for sale in excellent order throughout. Approached via a large entrance hall which affords access to all the reception rooms, there is a circular staircase rising to the first floor and down to the cellar. The kitchen/breakfast room is superb and boasts a range of painted wall and base units with granite worktops and a central island. There is an Aga and a limestone floor and French windows lead to the garden. The drawing room is double aspect and also has French windows to the terrace. Upstairs the bedrooms are all spacious and benefit from attractive far reaching views across the gardens and surrounding countryside. The house has high ceilings and generously proportioned rooms many of which are dual aspect. It is light throughout and retains many period features and panelling in the dining room. The extensive cellars house a bar area and a games room.
1 bedroom cottage
Sitting behind the house is a one bedroom cottage which provides ancillary accommodation and would be useful for a dependant relative or as staff accommodation. The cottage has an EPC Rating of G.
Garden and grounds
The Hollies is approached via gates which lead to a sweeping gravelled drive. A separate drive leads to the rear of the property and the large garaging/workshops. The house sits centrally within its land and the wonderful brick built orangery with stables, hot tub and gym room are adjacent to it. The gardens are mainly laid to lawn with hedging and specimen trees and include a wonderful sunken and walled garden beside the orangery. There is an equestrian paddock easily accessed from the stables. The gardens incorporate a pond which is lined with Dorset blue clay.
