Property details

Inside

WELCOME... to the English dream. Nothing says ‘home’ like a walled garden, the quintessentially British highlight of this magnificent country residence.

The Walled Garden is nestled within the small community of 25 families within and surrounding Clyffe House. Redolent of a bygone age, but utterly contemporary (built in 1986), this is a magical five-bedroom house in a delightful, private setting. The quality and attention to detail is apparent as soon as you turn onto the gravel drive, through imposing, electric double gates.

The entrance hall connects to all the main rooms on the ground floor.

The light and airy kitchen/breakfast room is a particular feature, flooded with light and space. This room is built for modern living, with a large island dividing the two spaces and room for a large table, while charming French windows offer access to the garden; the perfect everyday room for family as well as a generous, versatile area for entertaining.

A handy, discreet utility room leads off the kitchen and there is ample storage. The house further benefits from sealed-unit double glazing and propane gas-fired central heating throughout.

This is a house built with beauty and style, but also practicality in mind, with generous, adaptable room for visitors or relatives. There is a sitting room, a cosy snug, a formal dining room and a private study.

There are also three double bedrooms on the ground floor, all en-suite, ideal if stairs are an issue, but also affording wonderful access to the garden.

The two remaining bedrooms are on the first floor, with glorious views across the garden and the green fields and woodland of Tincleton beyond. The largest would make a fabulous master, enjoying triple-aspect views and a connecting dressing room. The family bathroom next door could easily be turned into an en-suite if required.

The fifth bedroom lies at the end of the hall and comes with its own bathroom and storage. It occupies the same floor space as the master bedroom and could be considerably enlarged to create a room of the same size if the adjacent roof space were converted.

Outside

Tucked away behind Clyffe House – the property was once the estate’s kitchen garden – this house offers a grand rural idyll.

Unique and utterly private, the 1.75-acre garden is surrounded by a high brick wall, with broad, sweeping lawns edged by a handsome variety of mature evergreen and deciduous trees. There is a picturesque ornamental pond and fountain; well-stocked borders and beds; a small wood; and two paved terraces allowing you to chase the sun whatever the time of day.

The garden is the perfect size for a swimming pool in addition to the existing all-weather tennis court. There is also outside storage, a double garage, and ample parking.

Location

Tincleton is one of Dorset’s prettiest, most unspoilt villages, surrounded by lush countryside and conveniently set in the heart of the county, surrounded by impressive transport links.

Puddletown, just five minutes drive away, offers a strong community hub and a wealth of facilities, including schools, shops, pubs, a surgery and a vet. There is a mainline rail station at Moreton, just six minutes away, with free parking, as well as glorious river and hill walks and horse riding.

The local walks are glorious from the door, and the area is especially well-served by independent schools, being in close proximity to Bryanston, Clayesmore, Sherborne, Castle Court, Dumpton and Canford.

There are excellent sporting facilities, including watersports, on the nearby coast; Ringstead Bay is just 22 minutes drive away. Moreover, there is first-rate fishing to be found on the rivers Piddle and Frome; golf at Wareham, Dorchester, Parkstone and Broadstone; and horse racing at Wincanton, Exeter, Salisbury and Bath.
