Toller Porcorum

Under Offer
Offers over £450,000


DOMVS, in assoc. with Fine & Country, is delighted to offer this charming, character, three-double bedroom former byre, nestling in unspoilt, gently undulating countryside. Vendor says, 'We knew it as soon as we saw it, it was a home for us!'


In an unspoilt valley in the heart of West Dorset, The Byre lies about two miles from the sought-after village of Toller Pocorum, with its sub post office, active village hall and medieval church. The bustling nearby village of Maiden Newton is some three miles distant, and is well-served by local facilities including a selection of shops, primary school, public house and railway station. Bridport and the county town of Dorchester are a short drive away, and there are a variety of sporting and leisure pursuits in the area, including golf at West Bay and Came Down, fishing on the River Frome, water sports along the Jurassic Coast, and racing at Wincanton and Taunton.


  • Outstanding and sympathetically converted Byre
  • Single storey rural residence enjoying far reaching views
  • Three double bedrooms, en-suite bathroom and separate shower room
  • South westerly gardens and courtyard parking
  • Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty


Nestling in unspoilt, gently undulating Dorset countryside, this former cow stall has been sympathetically and imaginatively converted into a light and airy, truly well-presented, single storey, country residence. Completed to an exacting standard with predominately solid oak flooring, vaulted ceilings, exposed beam and stonework, together with part underfloor heating and a woodburning stove, this adorable home enjoys considerable character, which entices you the minute you arrive.

A solid timber front door opens into the welcoming and spacious ENTRANCE HALL, with a generous ceiling height, exposed stonework to one wall, and oak flooring. The SITTING ROOM is as cosy as you would expect, with a woodburner on the flagstone hearth, a vaulted ceiling with exposed beams, oak flooring and a magnificent, exposed stone wall. French doors frame views of the rear garden, flanked either side by windows. The sitting room is particularly light and airy, with additional twin windows to the front aspect.

The pleasing oak flooring continues through to the KITCHEN/DINING ROOM, which also enjoys plentiful light from dual-aspect windows, and far reaching countryside views. The kitchen area has an array of fitted units, both eye- and base-level, with a bespoke, solid wood worktop providing generous preparation surfaces. There is a stainless steel, five-burner gas (Calor) hob with matching splash back, and oven and fitted dishwasher. With vaulted ceiling and exposed timber beams, the dining area exudes character, and offers plenty of room for a sizeable table and chairs. Just off the kitchen is the UTILITY/BOOT ROOM, with exposed, painted timber floor, and timber doors opening to both the front and rear of the property – ideal for dog walks and family rambles through the countryside. There is also a sink, along with space and plumbing for a washing machine and tumble dryer, and fitted storage cupboards, one of which houses the boiler. The separate CLOAKROOM comprises a wash-hand basin, WC, heated towel rail, oak flooring and window to rear.

The well-configured accommodation separates the living areas from the bedrooms. The INNER HALL – with oak flooring, feature exposed stone wall, and stable door to the front courtyard – leads to the THREE BEDROOMS and shower room. The MASTER BEDROOM features a built-in double wardrobe with wooden latch doors, and a vaulted ceiling with exposed timber beams, and enjoys a rural dual aspect. The luxurious EN-SUITE BATHROOM comprises a bath with both a hand-held and a wall-mounted shower over, a WC with concealed cistern, and a wash-hand basin with large, integral mirror over. There is a Velux window in the vaulted ceiling.

BEDROOMS TWO and THREE are both doubles with vaulted ceilings, exposed timber beams and built-in wardrobes with wooden latch doors. The SHOWER ROOM, also with vaulted ceiling, exposed beams and Velux window, offers a notably generous walk-in shower, WC with concealed cistern, and a wall-mounted wash-hand basin.


To the front of the property is a gravelled courtyard providing PARKING for four cars, with shaped, well-stocked borders providing an abundance of colour. The enclosed southwest-facing rear GARDEN is a most appealing feature of The Byre, largely laid to lawn. Outside the French doors of the sitting room, a flagstone PATIO provides the ideal spot for entertaining or simply sitting and enjoying the garden and far-reaching views over the adjoining farmland. There is also a timber GARDEN CHALET, and, to the side of the property, is another gravelled seating area.
