THE AGENT SAYS...
Grade II listed Brettingham Court is a quadrangle of 18 residential properties, formed from what were originally ancillary buildings to Hinton House. The dressed hamstone faced houses overlook a circular lawn and are approached via a majestic archway. Number 15 was once the Bachelors Wing to the main house, where unattached male guests were accommodated, with easy access to the billiards rooms, riding school and stable courtyard.
On the ground floor the entrance door leads into an impressive hall with staircase and a small ante room and cloakroom leading off. There are three floors with flexible accommodation, high ceilings, sash windows, fireplaces and the modern convenience of gas-fired central heating. The drawing room and study both have ornate ceilings and marble fireplaces. On the lower ground floor there is
an attractive kitchen with dual fuel AGA Masterchef cooker, French windows leading out to two small courtyards, and a dining room to the rear. From the dining room there is access into the sitting room which also has double doors to the courtyard and the delightful feature of an old stone spiral staircase.
On the first floor are four good sized bedrooms. The master bedroom has an en-suite shower room and there is also a spacious family bathroom.
GARDENS AND GROUNDS
The property is approached via a well maintained private road which leads to visitors parking and spurs off to the garages. There are attractive lawned and herbaceous gardens and from the visitors parking area a hamstone archway leads through to the quadrangle, with Bachelors House on the far side. A short walk from the property, on the other side of the visitors car park, is a large walled former kitchen garden of which approximately a third is owned by Bachelors House. This area is laid to lawn with a vegetable plot and a superb Mediterranean influenced raised seating area, ideal for alfresco dining.

There is easy road access to the A30, A303 and M5, and the Jurassic Coast is within about a 30 minute drive.
