About the property

A character cottage situated in a desirable village location offering spacious accommodation and countryside views with 3 bedrooms, 2 bath/shower rooms, garage and gardens.

Manor Cottage is a charming, character home believed to date back to 1770 originally forming part of the Shaftesbury Estate as a dairyman's house. In subsequent years the property was extended and more recently improved by the current owners. The property enjoys an enviable location backing onto The Church of St Wolfrida.

The property is located in Horton, on the edge of Cranborne Chase. The village is known for two historical buildings; Horton Tower and the Church of St Wolfrida. It is surrounded by open countryside and lies approx. 5.5 miles north of Wimborne Minster and has easy access links to surrounding towns such as Ringwood, Blandford and Salisbury.

The accommodation briefly comprises;

An entrance hall with a tiled floor. The spacious sitting room has dual aspect windows, a feature Inglenook and separate fire place with a wood burner. The dining room has a window to the front aspect and fire surround with an open fire.

From the inner hall there are stairs rising to the first floor, a back door, and cloakroom with wc and wash basin. The kitchen/breakfast room offers a modern range of fitted base and eye level units with integrated appliances including a double eye level oven, induction hob with canopy over, plus fridge and dishwasher. There is a pantry cupboard offering further storage.

Upstairs is a spacious first floor landing with lovely views towards the church. There are 3 double bedrooms. Bedroom 1 has fitted wardrobes and an en suite shower room with a modern 3 piece suite. Bedroom 2 has a fitted wardrobe, and vanity wash basin. Bedroom 3 also has a wash basin.

The main family bathroom has a 3 piece suite with wc, wash basin and bath with shower over.

Outside to the front of the property is a small planted garden. There are two main gardens, behind the property is an attractive secluded courtyard garden with well stocked planted borders and a loggia along the rear of the property. Between the house and garage is an access lane leading to the church which we are advised is only occasionally used for pedestrian access.

There is a detached garage in need of refurbishment/replacement with parking in front. Adjacent the garage is a lawned garden.

Finally at the rear of the property is a utility room and store.

Services: Septic tank drainage, oil fired central heating.

Directional note; Traveling north out of Wimborne take the B3078 towards Cranborne. After approx. 5 miles turn right at the Horton Inn Pub. Manor Cottage can be found on the right hand side after a further mile.
