Set on a 0.3 acre plot in a superb location enjoying its own postcode, close to open country walks and bridleways, and yet only 5 minutes from Corfe Mullen village, the house is traditionally built with attractive michelmersh brick, a painted plinth, a plain tiled roof, shingle-clad gable walls, a dormer window and a brick chimney. There is mains electricity and water, private drainage, and oil fired heating.

A covered entrance way leads to an L-shaped entrance hall with an under stairs cupboard. The bathroom has a cast iron bath, wash basin and WC. The triple aspect living room has a brickette open fireplace, oak shelves, an exposed ceiling beam and fine views over the garden and beyond. The dining room has a dual aspect over the gardens. The kitchen/breakfast room has units, work surfaces, sink, oven, separate grill, 4-burner ceramic hob, extractor, integrated dishwasher, half tiled walls, floor standing oil boiler, hot water cylinder, and door to a walk-in tiled pantry. There is a porch/utility area with space for white goods and door to outside. On the first floor bedroom 1 overlooks the rear garden and Red Lane. Bedroom 2 has a stunning open view, a built-in double wardrobe and access to eaves space. Bedroom 3 has a double wardrobe and a fine view over adjacent farmland.

Stone stack pillars and a 5-bar gate lead to a wide tarmac driveway which provides space to park at least 3 vehicles. There is a detached brick and timber garage/workshop with a built-in store. The gardens, the major portion of which lie to the south side of the house, feature lawns, timber fencing, beech and mixed hedges, fruit trees, compost heap, trees, paved pathways and a timber shed. An area of rough pasture borders farmland to the west.

At Corfe Mullen, before reaching The Coventry Arms, turn left near St Huberts Church into Blandford Road, and take the first right into Knoll Lane. Follow the lane along, and take the first turning on the right into Red Lane. Old Court Cottage is the second property on the right.
