Village manor house in Dorset for sale

This enchanting manor house in Dorset has very good family accommodation surrounded by a pretty, and partly walled, garden.

Manor House is a Grade II listed village property in Dorset, some of which dates back to the 16th century with consequent rebuilding and extensions. The house is made of stone and brick under a predominantly tiled roof. The front porch has a cut stone gothic door surround and the entrance hall also has lots of charm.

Ecclesiastic arched oak doors feature throughout the house and the drawing room has attractive and impressive cut-and-faced open stone fireplace, five bay windows with stone mullions and working oak shutters.

Three further reception rooms have fireplaces, cornicing and arched oak doors.

The new extension included a large slated-floored kitchen/breakfast/family room which forms the central hub of the property. Upstairs are six bedrooms, all with working fireplaces, two with en-suite bath/shower rooms and a further family bathroom.

Principal gardens lie to the rear; a number of climbing roses, wisteria and clematis grow over the rear elevations and there is a large expanse of level lawn with a stone paved terrace. In addition a mature yew hedge creates rooms with a flight of steps to a productive kitchen garden. A number of flower borders are also complemented by an ornamental pond.
