Traditionally constructed around 1954, as a 2 bedroom detached house, the property was substantially extended by the present owners in 2000, and now provides good family accommodation extending to about 1400 square feet.
Sarum House also has the benefit of a current planning permission to create a garden room on the ground floor.
It is presented in excellent decorative condition, with the benefit of oil fired central heating, UPVC double glazed windows and quality floor coverings throughout, including beech flooring in the entrance hall. Other features include a solid oak front door (with side screens,) a dual aspect sitting room with a fireplace and an inset wood burning stove, 2 well presented first floor bathrooms, and a superb kitchen/breakfast room (with butlers sink, electric Aga and black granite surfaces.)
There is ample space to erect a garage, subject to planning permission, and the large, lawned gardens are a particular feature. There are views from the first floor towards the nearby iconic landmark, Horton Tower.
Chalbury nestles between the villages of Gaunts Common, Hinton Martell and Horton, on high ground about 10 minutes' drive from Wimborne. The nearby village of Furzehill has a thriving post office/stores and other facilities are available in Colehill. There are First Schools in the neighbouring villages of Gaunts Common and Witchampton.
