Melbury Bubb is a peaceful hamlet lying within an Area of
Outstanding Natural Beauty close to the village of Chetnole
which has a branch line (Weymouth to Cardiff) railway
station as well as an award winning pub. Yeovil, Dorchester
and Sherborne are all within easy motoring distance. All
have mainline rail connections as well as an excellent range
of cultural and sporting amenities. The area is well served
by a number of very good and well known state and
independent schools for boys and girls of all ages.
Melbury Bubb House has 18th century origins and was
significantly enlarged in the late 19th century. It displays a
wealth of features from both periods including, two
staircases, sash windows, shutters, panelled doors and some
original fireplaces.
The well proportioned drawing room and dining room have
fine bay windows with stunning views. The kitchen/family
room has recently been extended and is the natural heart of
the house with its electric Aga, seating area and LPG
wood-burning stove. Triple bi-fold doors open on to the
sunny south facing courtyard. The large adjoining boot
room has a tiled floor, vaulted ceiling, and its own
back entrance.
On the first floor is a landing with study area. The master
bedroom and guest bedroom both have en-suite bathrooms;
there are four further bedrooms and two bathrooms.
All bedrooms have built in wardrobes and wonderful views.


Two vehicular accesses serve the property; electric remote
operated gates lead to a gravelled drive with parking for
several vehicles close to the front door. The second drive
leads to a double garage and additional parking. Adjacent to
the kitchen/family room is an enclosed courtyard, partly
cobbled with a raised fishpond and flowerbed. In front of
the house is a former grass tennis court with spectacular
long range countryside views. There is a large pond with
landscaped gardens around it and a synthetic putting green.
The covered heated swimming pool has a changing area.
The timber outbuildings include a run of five stables and a
potting shed. Beside the garages is a further yard with a
large workshop/barn with two first floor offices, two stables
(one is used as an artists studio) and two kennels with
runs. There are two paddocks with a field shelter.
