Ecologically significant home comes onto the market in Wareham with DOMVS

Tucked away in the Dorset countryside, Oak Tree Farm offers housebuyers complete seclusion and natural beauty. Surrounded by lush woodland and open heath, the farm sprawls across approximately 14.5 acres, with mature oak trees and a gentle brook.

Meticulously cared for over the years, Oak Tree Farm has been diligently maintained, cultivating a thriving ecosystem that supports diverse flora and fauna. Notably, the owners keep bees for pollination purposes, rather than producing honey.

The land’s ecological significance was recognised in 1985 by the Nature Conservancy Council, which surveyed the property and noted its exceptional conservation practices. The report highlighted the unusual “lack of inorganic fertiliser and weedkillers” and the “long history of freedom from disturbance,” praising the property’s “impressive list of higher plants.” According to the survey, “grassland such as this is now rare in Britain.” 

The current owner of Oak Tree Farm said, “Since the report in 1985, the farm has operated using the Permaculture philosophy, which means working with, rather than against nature, and without the use of chemicals or invasive methods, so we expect the wildlife is thriving as much today, as it was then.”

At the heart of the estate is the delightful period cottage, with a welcoming kitchen and dining area, complete with a traditional Rayburn range and views of the expansive gardens. Practical amenities including a utility room and storeroom offer convenience, while a gardener’s loo and the potential for additional living space enhance the cottage’s appeal.

A cosy snug is illuminated by natural light and a log burner, with French windows opening out to the beautiful grounds. The sitting room, with a wide fireplace and original oak beam, is at the heart of the home and a great space for entertaining. Upstairs, two double bedrooms are complemented by a versatile hobby space, ideal for creative pursuits or relaxation, while the sunlit bathroom has a deep bath and separate shower.

Oak Tree Farm is truly a hidden gem,” comments Alison Owens, Head of Sales at DOMVS estate agents in Wareham. “Homes surrounded by this much beauty rarely come onto the market, and we’re excited to introduce prospective buyers, who will undoubtedly fall in love with its serenity.

Oak Tree Farm is priced at £1,350,000. To book a viewing, contact DOMVS or click here to view the property details.
