Press Release | DOMVS launches stunning 17th century country house with equestrian facilities, on behalf of local author

Rectory Farm is a beautiful country estate with almost 3,500 square feet of 17th Century charm, not including the vast outbuildings. The Grade II listed farmhouse and converted barn is complemented by approximately 20 acres of land and a fully equipped equestrian yard with 11 internal and seven external boxes, as well as an all-weather menage.

The property, which is located in Winfrith Newburgh, a popular Dorset village close to the Jurassic Coast, is being sold by DOMVS on behalf of Dilara Patudi, an Equine Craniosacral Therapist and author. Dilara’s passion is to spiritually connect horses with humans and, up until recently, the Rectory Farm estate has facilitated this vision. Her book ‘The Healing Language of Horses’ is a message of unity, highlighting the inter-connective experience that’s possible with our equestrian counterparts. Dilara is now moving, with her horses, to another equestrian centre in the New Forest, making way for another investor to reap the rewards of a home with significant income potential.

Trish Ashby-Rudd from DOMVS commentsRectory Farm offers an exceptional opportunity to own a beautiful home that is ripe for a variety of different uses. The estate was previously used as an organic dairy farm, which could easily be revived, and the equestrian facilities are hot to trot, so to speak. The new owners could utilise the estate as a stud farm for breeding or retain as a livery and the home itself is in impeccable condition, ready to move straight in.”

The four-bedroom house retains many traditional and modern features. Vaulted ceilings, a galleried landing, oak beams, a wood burner within an inglenook fireplace, underfloor heating throughout and floor-to-ceiling windows in the drawing room make this a very special home. Every room has a different, yet stunning view across the grounds and the two separate staircases add a sense of grandeur to the property.

A quiet country lane, which passes over a bridge crossing the River Win, leads to a gravel driveway, where there is plenty of parking and a double garage adjoining the stables. A courtyard to the front of has a striking water feature and the enclosed gardens have a west-facing terrace at the rear of the home, accessed from the garden room, dining room, and sitting room. A covered Cow Byre is used for external storage, and there is also a sheep house and converted office in the stable block, with adjacent WC and shower facilities.

This property is available to either buy or rent.
