Pine Tree Farm is thought to originate from the early to mid-1940s and sits under an impressive water reed thatch roof. The original dwelling has been significantly extended and reconfigured by the present owners, who currently have it laid out as two separate living units; whilst the current layout offers great flexibility, the option remains to amalgamate the two sections and enhance an already wonderful family home. The accommodation is well presented and generously proportioned, and all principle living rooms are orientated towards or open onto a lovely terrace that overlooks the magnificent gardens, which have been a labour of love for the owners, who have worked meticulously to create the 'parkland' style lawns and grassland that graciously sweep away from the house in a south and west direction. There is a collection of useful outbuildings within the grounds, which extend in total to approximately 7 acres and abut adjoining farmland.
Pine Tree Farm occupies a quiet, private position close to the sought after village of Cranborne, deep in the heart of the rolling countryside of the Cranborne Chase. The village (approximately 1 mile) provides an excellent Estate managed shop that sells predominantly local produce, Post Office, public houses, a church and restaurants and is home to Cranborne Manor, home of Lord Salisbury. Further village facilities include primary and middle schools, a garden centre and tea rooms. There is also the Cranborne cricket club with a clubhouse and bar. The local road network ensures good access to the larger town of Fordingbridge (approx. 5 miles), the Cathedral City of Salisbury, Blandford and Wimborne and there is mainline rail services to London Waterloo at Salisbury. The surrounding countryside provides myriad opportunities for exploration by wheel or on foot and there is a selection of golf clubs in the area.

Pine Tree Farm is approached through a 5 bar wooden gate and over a gravelled driveway that opens to the front of the house into a generous parking and turning area. The driveway continues to the side of the house, where there is alternate vehicular access from the lane, again via a 5 bar wooden gate. Beyond this point the drive continues to a detached single garage and separate detached 4 bay garage/outbuilding with attached covered log store.
The garden and main body of land is predominantly located to the side and rear of the house, being south and west facing respectively. Adjoining the rear of the house are two linked terraces, one of which is accessed from the Drawing and Dining Rooms, the other from the Sitting and Music Rooms. An expanse of well maintained lawn runs away from the house to a lightly populated tree line of evergreens, beyond which lies a large open tract of grassland, which is also sporadically interspersed by a line of fir trees, and the enclosed tennis court. A further section of open grassland then runs to the far western boundary of the property, where it abuts neighbouring farmland. A water supply is connected in the lower section of land and in the far corner stands a line of mature apple trees. The grounds offer a secure level of privacy and extend to approximately 7 acres.
Leave Fordingbridge and proceed to Damerham. Upon entering the village pass the Compasses Inn on left hand side and cross the small bridge. Follow this road as it bears right out of the village (signposted Cranborne) into Browns Lane and ascend the hill. Continue on this road in the direction of Cranborne for approximately 1 1/2 miles, passing the Philip Green Memorial School on the right hand side. After a short distance the entrance to Pine Tree Farm will be located on the right hand side.
