This historic grade II listed building dates back to 1840 - and retains many
original features that enhance the modern improvements inside.- the Dolmen or "Druids Alter" that stands at the front of the dwelling and gives the house its name, is believed to date back to the Neolithic period (4000 - 3600 BC) when the first farming communities were being established in the area. Now though, this exceptionally spacious detached house offers a wealth of both well planned and adaptable living accommodation as well as a range of outbuildings, all of which afford prospective purchasers a variety of options - from family home with granny annex to Air B&B - and would equally suit those involved in equestrian pursuits or needing space to work from home.
On the ground floor there are 2 principle recreation rooms - both with feature period fireplaces whilst the well appointed kitchen (with utility room off) is fitted with a good range high and low level beech units, island breakfast bar with granite work surfaces and original servant calling system. There is also a connecting door to the annex, a "servants" stairway and a most useful shower room and separate wet room leading to the yard. On the first floor the continuity is maintained with 5 bedrooms, study and family bathroom whilst externally the large and mature gardens are augmented by patios, pond and barbeque areas.
The annex, which can be accessed both internally and externally, provides a further
reception room with brick built fireplace, large bright sun room with sea views, kitchen, bathroom and 2 beds plus study. Both bedroom 2 and the study are approached by an ornate cast iron spiral staircase.
We cannot possibly begin to fully describe the quality and calibre of accommodation on offer in this exceptional family home and instead would strongly urge early personal appraisal.
