Farrs Cottage is a very spacious and attractive home set in beautiful, mature grounds with large, well-proportioned rooms. Peacefully tucked down a private driveway off a quiet lane, the home has a very serene feeling, whilst being in the heart of the village.


Farrs Cottage has evolved over the years. A period feature wall echoes back to the cottages that were once here but then replaced with a bungalow which has since been sympathetically extended by the current owners to create the lovely, spacious and accommodating home it is today.

The feeling of space is apparent upon entering the bright porchway which opens to a hallway leading to a large sitting room to the left overlooking the attractive garden, a comfortable conservatory ahead and to the right a well-equipped kitchen, large dining room, study, utility room and a large bedroom which together with its spacious ensuite shower room and dressing room span the depth of the home. This bedroom suite offers great annex potential.

Upstairs are two more large bedrooms with a family bathroom and finally, a spanning one entire end of the property is a fantastic main bedroom and stunning ensuite bathroom with freestanding bath and large separate shower.


A private drive opens to a generous parking area, single garage and a wonderfully versatile workshop. To the rear, a large and delightful mature SE facing garden has an array of mature shrubbery, water feature, vegetable patch, fruit cage, assorted fruit trees, shed and small lean-to greenhouse.


From the A350 north of Blandford, turn left onto the A357 at Durweston Bridge and continue 2.5 miles through Durweston and into Shillingstone past the pub and village hall. Turn right on Church Road and right onto Hine Town Lane and continue past homes to the first driveway on the right which is Farrs Cottage.


The home benefits from double glazed windows, gas fired central heating, mains gas, electric, water and drainage.
