Marnhull is one of the largest villages in England and has a thriving community life with a primary school, three churches, an inn and doctors'surgery and dispensary. There are numerous clubs and societies which are based in the village and the nearby town of Sturminster Newton also boasts an active Community Centre providing a range of cultural and educational facilities. Marnhull is celebrated in Thomas Hardy’s Tess of the D’Urbevilles as Marlot and the views from Barns Brow will leave you in no doubt as to why the Blackmore Vale was so close to his heart.
Communication: There is a mainline train service to London Waterloo and the West Country approximately 6 miles away in Gillingham. London can be reached by car via the A303/M3 link. There are also good road links to the larger conurbations of Poole, Bournemouth and the Jurassic coastline. The county towns of Sherborne, Blandford, Shaftesbury and Gillingham are within easy driving distance.
Surrounded by glorious countryside, walking and riding are high on the agenda for some; whilst there are golf courses at Sherborne, Tollard Royal and Blandford. Numerous clubs and societies are available within the village and surrounding area with all tastes being catered for.
This impressive Barn conversion has Marnhull stone elevations under a slate roof. The conversion was carried out to exacting standards in 2008 by a local builder for his own occupation and enjoys full Buildmark Insurance Cover with 17 months still remaining. The Drawing Room affords glorious views over the landscaped gardens to the front and the surrounding countryside. It has a vaulted ceiling, with exposed oak beam-work, floor-to-ceiling glazed panelling to the front elevation and a wood-burning stove, with Marnhull stone inset and flagstone hearth. All external windows are of hardwood construction and quality fittings have been used in the Family Bath and Shower Room and En-suite Shower Room to the Master Bedroom Suite. The impressive Kitchen/Breakfast/Dining Room is well fitted and here again enjoys a vaulted ceiling, together with an extensive range of hand-made units. There is ample storage throughout the property, with Coat Cupboard in the Inner Hall, Airing Cupboard and Storage Cupboard: the Loft Space is also boarded out for storage. Outside, there is an extensive gravelled driveway, a large Carport and Garage. The gardens have been landscaped, with those to the front of the property affording glorious views of the surrounding countryside. To the rear of the property is a Courtyard Garden that has been well planted and to one end has a neat Terraced Area, accessed from the Dining Area of the Kitchen – perfect for enjoying a quiet moment at the end of the day or for alfresco dining.
The original barn was part of a working farmyard and the farmhouse and other more modern farm buildings still remain.
