This property character home will be built by www.stourhomes.co.uk to the highest specifications, using local stone and cedar timber, with oak features, it will make best use of the natural light available with uninterrupted views of the beautiful surrounding countryside. Inside, the rural aesthetic will be combined with contemporary open-plan living that allows you to enjoy this unique space to its full potential.


Limpers Hill Farmhouse, one mile south of the village centre of Mere is located in quiet picturesque, gently undulating countryside on the border of North Dorset and Wiltshire, with close proximity to the ancient hilltop town of Shaftesbury, and the National Trust site of Stourhead.

The location has the added advantage of excellent transport links to London and the West Country, viw the A303. Four miles south, Gillingham station offers a regular service to London Waterloo, as well as Exeter and other destinations in the West Country. The City of Salisbury is within approximately 45 minutes driving distance to the east and Bath is a similar distance to the north.

Mere has a good range of local shops and amenities, including library, museum, post office, dentist and doctors. The nearby towns of Gillingham and Shaftesbury have several major supermarkets, including Waitrose, Tesco and Asda.


Access to the property is from Limpers Hill Lane, with the house in the centre of the 0.23ha (over ½ acre) plot and set back from the quiet rural lane. The garden extends to the west and north of the house, with no immediate adjoining neighbours to the site.

Surrounding the site on all sides is farmland and a mixture of trees and hedgerows. Between the trees there are impressive views of the Mere Downs.


Stourhomes create oak framed homes for modern living. Internally, the home will have a modern architectural style - free flowing spaces, more relaxed open-plan kitchen/diner and lounge rooms with oak beams, and four bedrooms, all with ensuites, one on the ground floor.

The external view of the dwelling from the roadway would be:

a largely oak frame structure, central glazed gable with floor to ceiling glazing, incorporating traditional features such as cottage dormer style windows and local natural stone, covered by a plain clay tile roof, with a separate large car port.

The house, with a distinct external design, will provide an opportunity for greater individuality inside. The aim will be to achieve a B EPC rating using high insulation and pioneering energy efficient products.
