Hinton Martell, Wimborne BH21 7HF

£850,000 via Woolley & Wallis, Ringwood: 01425 209342

HOUSE & PLOT . Character three bedroom cottage in the beautiful, quiet rural location of Hinton Martell, ideally suited to walking routes as many bye ways and footpaths are in the area. The cottage has been renovated to a high standard over the years, including re-wiring and plumbing, but still maintains numerous original features in parts of the property, including cobbled flooring which dates back to the 1700’s. The property was extended in the 1980’s and has been with the same owner for the past 23 years. Included in the sale is a separate one bedroomed annexe, which could be demolished as the property is being sold with planning permission for a three bedroom detached cottage. There is also potential for a further extension on the rear of the cottage due to the extensive gardens. Subject to planning permission.

An original wooden door leads into a spacious sitting room, with a surprisingly high beamed ceiling and features a cosy wood burner. The room has been acoustically treated for home entertainment and has its own hi-fi mains supply. The dining room has quarry tile flooring and original beamed ceiling, with stairs leading to first floor.

A further door leads to the dual aspect kitchen/breakfast room, which feature brick walls and tongue and grove panelling. Integrated appliances including dishwasher, fridge, oven and gas hob compliment the featured wood burner with a heating plate.

There are stunning views over the extensive garden and surrounding countryside from the kitchen window and rear door to the garden. The cloakroom features panelling and brickwork with W.C and wash hand basin. There is a loft hatch with ladder above the kitchen, fully boarded out for storage with power and lighting.

The first floor landing has a useful storage cupboard and leads to two double and one single bedroom, which look over the front of the property. Bedroom one is a double with a hanging area and shelving and several quirky hidden storage areas.

Bedroom two is a single. Bedroom three is another double with a storage cupboard.
The family bathroom has a bath, W.C and wash hand basin, which would benefit from modernisation, so has been left for prospective buyers to put their stamp on: it currently provides an airing cupboard and walk in wardrobe area.

The heating system has had a new oil tank fitted and the hot water also benefits from a solar array on the roof.
