Type of project and use of building: Residential new build farmhouse, barn conversion garaging, stables and lake in 130acres
Wellwood Farm, Beaminster, West Dorset, is a new house, but it is believed that there has been a farm on the site for over a thousand years, and is mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086. The setting is outstanding; the house is approached down a long private drive, which sweeps up and over the hill, offering panoramic views across the land and the surrounding unspoiled countryside. Sitting in the middle of 129 acres, with no public rights of access, Wellwood Farm provides an enviable level of privacy. Meticulous attention to detail and bespoke design features are notable throughout the main house and local building materials have been used where possible. Sherborne stone floors feature throughout the ground floor, with under-floor heating in in every room.
