Woolland House in Dorset

Posted on Mon, 25 Jul 2022 by KiM

This beautiful seven-bedroom house, with artists’ studios, coach house and cottage, is set within approximately 17 acres of exquisite private gardens, meadows and lakes within the Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Once the home of the sculptor Dame Elisabeth Frink RA, it has recently been the subject of a restoration completed by acclaimed builders R. Moulding & Co. Woolland House can be approached via separate driveways and is entered through a beautiful cobbled courtyard, open at one side and with a fountain at its centre. A contemporary, glazed atrium, designed by architect Simon Morray-Jones, provides a walkway to the front entrance. The house beautifully combines classical and late-medieval elements with a traditional Dorset vernacular of stone, red brick and flint. At its centre is a double-height hall with vaulted cathedral ceilings and hardwood parquet flooring. There are two bedrooms on the ground floor, along with two bathrooms, and four further bedrooms on the first floor, with three bathrooms between them. The Coach House is positioned on the eastern side of the house and provides self-contained one-bedroom accommodation over two levels. Elisabeth Frink’s main studio is set apart from the house and offers an enormous amount of versatile space over two levels.
And on, and on, and on of just utter fabulousness. Perfect for horse lovers, anyone who loves the outdoors and gardening, and that artist studio….WHOA. For sale via The Modern House.
