Luxury Farmhouse For Sale | Milborne Wick | Sherborne | Dorset

Orbis & Papilio Creek

Milborne Wick, Sherborne, Dorset, UK


Positioned in the small hamlet of†Milborne Wick near Sherborne, the sale of this farmhouse, its separate cottage and magical gardens offers an unique opportunity to those seeking a rural retreat in Dorset.

This sale comprises two unique properties: Orbis and Papilio Creek. Originally built to house the workers from the village mill, carefully restored and extended by its current owners, Orbis is a spacious and light-filled family home. Built from Sherborne stone with leaded oak-mullioned windows and nestled into a hillside, the main house has five large bedrooms, an oak-framed conservatory, an open-plan kitchen with Aga, and sitting room with cinema projector. The smaller adjoining property, Papilio Creek, is ideal for housing visiting guests or grandparents; with its tranquil stone temple, it is part traditional and part modern sanctuary.

Tucked away from any thoughts of humdrum, the silence around Orbis and Papilio Creek is only broken by bleating sheep and the bubbling hot tub. With a small mill stream,†pillared grotto,†and bountiful lavender-wrapped herb garden, the outside of the property is just as compelling as the interior. The suntrap rooftop, handful of al fresco dining areas, and expansive grounds make this an enchanting family home thatís ideal for large group gatherings. Individually, the two properties have been successful rentals on the Unique Homestays portfolio since 2018, so the sale offers the opportunity for buyers to secure a lucrative income.
