18th Century House, Dorset

18th Century House, Dorset

Located in the quiet hamlet of Blandford St Mary, the house is sited in a prominent position opposite the parish church and once formed the nucleus of a prosperous manor farm. The site originally formed part of the estates of Priory of St Mary Clerkenwell, a house of Augustinian canonesses. Although the building dates from the first half of the 18th century, it almost certainly replaced an earlier building on the site.

The instruction comprised a full building survey of the house and the various outbuildings on the site, accompanied by a costed schedule of recommendations.
