Download Floor Plan

This charming home was re-wired and re-plumbed in 2009 and offers deceptively spacious 2-storey accommodation extending to over 1800 square feet. It benefits from an LPG (Calor) central heating system, timber double glazed windows (some secondary glazed) and doors, and latched oak internal doors.

Horton is a popular Dorset setting with a church, a pub, a village hall and easy access by road to the market towns of Wimborne Minster and Ringwood, and the city of Salisbury. The coastal towns of Poole and Bournemouth are also within easy reach.

An entrance porch leads to a reception hall with panelled walls concealing 2 built-in cupboards. There is a shower room, and 2 ground floor bedrooms, one of which has casement doors to the garden and a staircase to a mezzanine floor which could be used as a study, bedroom or studio.

A pair of 100-year old Indian teak half glazed casement doors open onto a magnificent living/dining room with a brick open fireplace (with inset wood burning stove), wide oak boarded flooring, and 2 pairs of casement doors to the garden terrace.

There is a superb, spacious kitchen/breakfast room with a Travertine tiled floor, space for a table and a sofa, an excellent range of polished granite work surfaces, upstands, a double butler’s sink, a comprehensive range of base cupboards and drawers, a full height 4-door food storage cupboard, space for an American style fridge-freezer, and appliances including a Rangemaster range cooker (with 6 LPG burners, 2 electric ovens and a grill) and an integrated dishwasher. The separate utility room has space and plumbing for washing machine, broom cupboard and stable door to the garden.

From the living room, a staircase with an oak handrail leads to a semi-galleried landing with a range of built-in cupboards and a boiler cupboard (with fitted light, wall mounted gas condensing boiler and pressurised hot water cylinder).

The master bedroom has an exposed A-frame, ceiling timbers, Heritage style Velux rooflights, a built-in double wardrobe and an en suite shower room.

Bedroom 2 has exposed ceiling timbers, Heritage style Velux rooflights, a built-in double wardrobe, access to eaves storage space, and a luxury en suite bath/shower room (with twin-ended spa bath, shower cubicle, vanity wash basin and WC).

The south facing rear garden is enclosed mainly by brick walling and features lawns, well stocked, wide flower and shrub borders, and timber sleeper steps leading down to an Indian sandstone terrace with exterior water tap, wall light points and electric sockets. A side gate leads to the front of the property. To the rear there is a gated access to the adjacent church grounds, with lovely views of the 18th century parish church of St Wolfrida. There is on-street parking nearby.

DIRECTIONS: From Wimborne, proceed north on the B3078 towards Cranborne for about 5 miles, turning right at the Horton Inn towards Horton. Drop down into the village and, just past the right hand turning to Chalbury, The Old Hall can be found on the right hand side.
