A detailed planning consent has been granted for a spacious detached 4-bedroom contemporary eco-house within the Dorset AONB and in a picturesque village setting within the Conservation Area. The house is approximately 2150sq.ft on one level and is designed to fully integrate within the existing landscape. The house will have a lounge, dining area, kitchen, storeroom, larder, utility and cloakroom with 4-bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, 2 en-suites and a covered terrace. Three of the four exterior walls are built into the chalk bank with a glazed wall to the west with views out across the valley. The house will also have a grass roof with 3 roof-lights for additional light. Up to 22 Solar panels can be fitted onto an existing barn on site to provide heating and lighting for the development. The house will be constructed of local stone and timber and is in a secluded spot with a large south-west facing garden and views across the valley. The plot is on a no-through lane. In addition to the plot, included in the sale are the existing barn and double garage as described more fully below.

The Site

The plot extends to approximately a third of an acre and the plot has been excavated and is level. The plot is set against a backdrop of mature trees and is obscured from the village by a mature hedge and further trees. The plot has a large gravelled parking area at the entrance leading to an existing double garage of around 362sq.ft and a large barn on two levels with around 840sq.ft of floor space, currently used to house a boat. This area sits at a lower level than the house and is at the foot of the site.

The Area

The village is in the Dorset Downs AONB some 4 miles from Blandford Forum. The village has a population of over 500 people. Amenities include a 17th century inn, post office, shop, pub, village hall, church and school. To the north of the village is a sports club for cricket and football and a play area. There are many other local clubs and social events within the village. The market town of Blandford Forum has been described by The Guardian as A Little Bath, as it is noted for its Georgian Architecture. As well as the Saturday market, the town has numerous shops, restaurants and supermarkets and has a population of around 11,500. The Blandford School has been rated as Good by Ofsted whilst independent education is offered at Bryanston School and Canford School amongst others.


The plot has access to electricity and water but will require a septic tank or similar arrangement as there is no mains drainage. We would advise potential purchasers to check with suppliers before exchange of contracts.
