Looke Farmhouse
Looke Farmhouse
It was quite heartbreaking trying to show this gem of a house in its proper context, as it was completely surrounded by a sea of junk and abandoned cars, in a farmyard that looked more like Steptoe's yard! A great shame as it has some unusual and distinctive features. The farmhouse was built at the turn of the C18, and has a date stone on the door lintel inscribed 'R and M H 1700'. Other features such as the semi circular stone pediments to the windows and door, the latter having carved bunches of fruit overhead, and the four eccentric chimney stacks, make this a most unusual Dorset farmhouse. Grade II* Listed. SY5488 : Looke Farmhouse (2)
