Elham Court is a group of 11 cottages set in a most attractive enclave about half a mile from the centre of Farnham and within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It was originally a private farmhouse and, later, a school in the mid-19th century. The famous archaeologist, General Augustus Pitt-Rivers adopted the building in late Victorian times and it was used as his museum. In the 1980s, the main building was converted into 3 private houses, and the galleries, to the rear, were converted into further character homes. Rushmore Cottage has a most attractive appearance, with mainly rendered elevations under a tiled roof. It is connected to mains electricity and water and has a private drainage system and an LPG heating system.

A covered entrance porch leads to a lobby, a cloakroom and a reception hall. The lounge has 2 window seats, 2 arched alcoves and a wood burner. An open archway leads to a dining room, from which a double glazed patio door opens to a large rear conservatory with French doors to the garden. The kitchen has recently been re-fitted with an excellent range of units and worktops, Lamona gas hob, cooker hood above, Lamona electric double oven, integrated dishwasher and fridge-freezer. There is a separate utility room with under stairs cupboard, Belfast sink, appliance space, wall mounted Worcester LPG gas boiler, and full height shelved cupboards. The first floor landing has an airing cupboard, 3 bedrooms and a family bath/shower room with a modern white suite. A staircase leads to a large attic room with sloping ceiling, access to eaves storage cupboard, and outstanding rural views.

There is an allocated parking space and a nearby garage with an up-and-over door and a pitched roof providing attic storage space (with retractable ladder). The large rear garden adjoins open countryside and has a terrace, steps to a raised lawn, well stocked flower and shrub beds, a timber shed, a wood store and a rear gate to a grass access track.

Directions: From Wimborne, proceed north on the Wimborne to Cranborne Road (B3078) for about 5 miles. Turn left at the Horton Inn, signposted the Gussages. Proceed for about 4 miles.
