Muston Manor has handsome Flemish bond brickwork under a thatched roof and a two storey porch probably built in imitation of nearby Anderson Manor. The property exudes charm and is mentioned by Pevsner in the Dorset edition of The Buildings of England who called it "a thatched cottage of unusual pretension". There are many interesting internal features of note with several rooms having fielded panelling with moulded dado rail. The sitting room has a moulded cornice and on the first floor two rooms have coved and segmental plastered ceilings. The house has accommodation which includes two reception rooms, kitchen/breakfast room, three bedrooms, dressing room, shower and bathroom and is surrounded by its own gardens which are in turn surrounded by open farmland.

Please see floor plans.

Muston Manor is surrounded by its own gardens which are predominantly laid to lawn and include a parking/turning area and open fronted garage. There are also many mature trees including fruit trees, well stocked beds and borders and a paved terrace. The gardens are surrounded by farmland and provide attractive rural views over the surrounding South Dorset countryside.
