DOMVS, in assoc with Fine & Country, invites you to view this fabulous, contemporised homestead with annexe and home office space. "…Our lifestyle has changed since living here, we spend so much time in the garden, now work from home and are loving life."


Sitting between the historic village of Corfe Castle, with its imposing castle ruins and rolling Purbeck hills, Harman's Cross is a small, popular, hamlet with its own heritage railway station, and station halt. South Instow is a cluster of homes on the Southerly side of the Valley Road. Lying close to the Jurassic Coast and surrounded by spectacular scenery across the Isle of Purbeck. The Village Hall doubles up as cinema and occasional pub, to the delight of the locals.


  • Home office and separate annexe
  • Contemporary living spaces
  • German designed kitchen/dining room
  • Master en-suite with sundowner balcony
  • Double garage
  • Established half-acre garden
  • Fabulous far-reaching views


Windy Hollow is nested down into South Instow with fabulous views over the Purbeck Hills. It offers an opportunity for you to work from home, with high speed broadband and home office. There is also an Annex for potential home income generation. But not only this, the gardens are established and the house offers lots of contemporary, flexible living spaces.

The PORCH leads through to a light and airy HALLWAY with a CLOAKROOM WC, and a separate walk-in cupboard for coats and boots. The DINING ROOM has double glass doors opening to reveal a generous room, with views out towards the hills. Double glass doors from the hallway lead to the KITCHEN/LIVING ROOM.
This is a homely living space, and a real hub of the home. With doors leading out to the veranda, garden, and the rest of the house. The kitchen is of German design and of high specification, it includes lots of very clever and useful storage spaces. There are two sinks, one with a waste disposal unit, and many integral appliances: Seimen's microwave, oven, induction hob, domino single gas ring. There is an integral full height fridge, separate freezer and cooker hood, all made by Seimens. This kitchen is for you, if you love food, love cooking or just love having people round! Up a couple of steps to a small landing, and there is the door to the SITTING ROOM, with large BI-FOLD doors opening onto the Purbeck stone constructed, south/west facing veranda. Inside, for chiller months, the Purbeck stone fireplace is a focal point and ready for you to install a log burner of your choice.

Another door leads off to the UTILITY ROOM, with a Belfast sink and space for a freezer, washing machine and drier. The door to the garden leads to a side access passage and could be used for potting and planting. There is a door to the large DOUBLE GARAGE, with an electric front door. There is plenty of space for workshop benches and storage.

Up a flight of stairs to the MASTER SUITE: This is a retreat, with lots of areas to relax and make the most of the views. Up steps to a quiet study area, there is plenty of space for a sofa here to curl up with a book. The DOUBLE BEDROOM has a DRESSING AREA and an EN-SUITE shower room. There is a cosy, relaxed SITTING AREA with lots of storage, which is kept tidy behind Hammonds built in cupboards. There are French doors to a private balcony. The glorious views make this a perfect place to watch the sun go down. From this master suite, there is a door to a huge storage area, which is insulated, boarded and has lighting and power.

From the kitchen, a door opens to a HALLWAY with lovingly restored parquet flooring, which leads to a SNUG, this delightful room has a decorative fireplace with a pine surround, also a door to the decked balcony – it has an electric sun canopy. The STUDY has lots of natural light and a door that leads out to join the decked balcony as well. The STUDIO, which has wooden floorboards, is spacious and could be a great space for hobbies or indeed working and Bi-fold doors opening to the CONSERVATORY. There are two DOUBLE BEDROOMS, both with large east facing bay windows, capturing the morning sun and views over the valley. There is a SHOWER ROOM and WC, which serves both the bedrooms.


The GARDEN is an integral part of the house and makes living in the Purbeck Hills irresistible. From the Purbeck stone-built veranda, to the far-reaching views. Windy Hollow has many spots to enjoy the garden and surrounds. For the gardener, there is a greenhouse, sheds, workshops, fruit trees and fruit bushes. There is a grapevine and wildflowers. For the non-gardeners, there are sunbathing patios and lawn, tree dappled shade for a cream tea perhaps.

The ANNEX to the house has its own entrance which opens into a small lobby. There is a large DOUBLE BEDROOM and a BATHROOM, with separate bath and shower. There are gardens to the front and rear. What an opportunity!
