A charming detached thatched cottage situated in the pretty village of Martin within the Cranborne Chase aonb, with three bedrooms, a bathroom, period features and wonderful mature gardens, and truly is the quintessential 'chocolate box' cottage. Situated within the conservation village of Martin, this attractive cottage has been beautifully updated by the vendor while retaining a wealth of period features. The Grade ii-listed cottage is believed to date from the 1700s and is built in a traditional style with brick and flint elevations under a charming thatch roof. Internally there are many exposed timbers, a deep inglenook fireplace with bread oven now fitted with a wood-burning stove, plus many original doors. The property is now presented to a very high standard, with a great level of care and attention afforded to the considerable history and character of the home. Highlights include the family kitchen/dining room, which has an aga range stove, ample storage and space for a table, with heritage-style kitchen units supporting a butler sink. Within the sitting room, there are many well preserved beams showcasing the age of the property, with a modern staircase arranged unobtrusively in the corner. The ground floor also comprises a boot room, a utility room with shower and a separate w.c. On the first floor there are three double bedrooms, with two having built-in storage, and a separate family bathroom.

Behind a mature hedgerow the property is approached over a good size gravel driveway leading to a parking area and a good sized single detached garage. There are lawned areas to the front and rear, with the rear gardens being particularly notable for its selection of mature trees and shrubs. There is a secluded terrace behind the house. At the rear of the gardens is a super summer house/home office (currently used as a den with a small log burner), which is fully set up for home-working.

Located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Martin is a lovely countryside village surrounded by the rolling landscape of the Cranborne Chase, perfect for enjoying rural pursuits. The Martin Down National Reserve provides a network of paths and bridleways, while the local community offers a church, village hall and community store. There is a primary school in Damerham, while Fordingbridge has ample amenities to satisfy daily needs and the cathedral City of Salisbury is 10 miles north east with its regionally renowned facilities and excellent schooling. There are great road links with the A303 giving access to the M3 and London. Salisbury train station offers direct links to London Waterloo (83 minutes).
