Farmhouse with outbuildings and nine acres

This gorgeous Dorset farmhouse with land and outbuildings is up for auction in a couple of weeks.
A tip off from reader Angus, the five-bedroom Grade II-listed house comes with masses of farm buildings, two paddocks, water meadow and over nine acres of land.

Hayden Farmhouse, is in lovely Charminster, about a mile from Dorchester.
The farm buildings need a lot of work (or demolition/rebuild), the house needs remodelling and renovating, but most rooms are big and light with lots of original features. And that land is a big plus.

On the not plus side, there's a public right-of-way across the drive and one of the paddocks; and a patch of Japanese Knotweed (treated) at the end of the garden.
There are reasons handsome properties like this end up at auction.

Up for auction on June 1st via Symonds and Sampson with a guide price of £575k. Details here and here.
