Barton Farm is a very special home in an outstanding location of real historical significance. Built in the 15th century it was the grange farm of the Abbey of Shaftesbury's estate of Bradford. It was developed in the middle ages around a central square with a huge barn, granary, smaller barns and a farmhouse. Together they form one of the most complete medieval farm complexes in the country. It remained a working farm into the 1960s, so there have been many additions and alterations throughout the six centuries of its life.
Barton Farm house would have been the house and offices of the Steward or Bailiff of Shaftesbury Abbey's estate, his family and retainers. Most of the building was rebuilt, or at least highly modified, in the Georgian period and is now divided into two separate homes.
Externally is a magical south facing walled garden with paved seating areas looking onto the lawn, flower beds & well stocked borders. The property has three private allocated parking spaces in front of the entrance to the Tithe Barn.
