The small village of Hinton Martell (partially named after the Frenchman Eudo Martel who held the village at the time of the Magna Carta), is situated in unspoilt countryside approximately 4 miles north of the historic town of Wimborne Minster. The house is located within the conservation area near an attractive fountain and close to the pretty church of St John the Evangelist. Wimborne offers excellent amenities including both Waitrose and Co-operative supermarkets, many independent shops, numerous cafes, bars and restaurants and the Quarterjack doctors surgery. There is also the Tivoli cinema/ theatre and the Allendale community centre. The centres of both Bournemouth and Poole renowned for their shopping, entertainment and recreational amenities, excellent beaches and yacht clubs are within easy driving distance. Access to the M27 and M3 to London is via the A31 which can be joined just over a mile away at Merley and mainline trains to London Waterloo run from both Poole and Bournemouth stations. There are excellent state and independent schools in the wider area, including Canford, Bryanston, Clayesmore, Sandroyd, Milton Abbey, Sherborne, Port Regis, Dumpton and Castle Court, together with the recently rebuilt Queen Elizabeth School and the St John's CE First School. Sporting facilities in the area include fine golf courses at Broadstone, Ferndown, Parkstone and Remedy Oak and excellent sailing and water sports available at Poole Harbour and along the Dorset coast.
Old Manor Farm House is a delightful property which is believed to date from the 18th Century, although the front portion on the south side was rebuilt during the second part of the 19th Century. The property is constructed with attractive brick elevations under a tiled roof and offers superb accommodation on ground and first floor levels. The house has many period features including exposed beams, shuttered sash windows and attractive open fireplaces. The vendors, who have lived in the property for the last ten years but are now building a new house within the village, have carried out a number of improvements. The render to the front elevation was removed to reveal most attractive brickwork which has really transformed the appearance of the house. A magnificent conservatory has been added with under floor heating and there is also under floor heating in the drawing room and utility room with the rest of the house having radiators. The property was re-roofed and many of the attractive windows have been sympathetically replaced. A superb kitchen was fitted including an electric Aga. All the principal rooms are south facing, whilst the rooms at the rear of the house have an excellent open aspect across the garden to the countryside beyond.
Please see floor plans.
The property is approached off the village road by an in and out gravelled driveway skirting a semi circular lawn which stands behind a front boundary of dwarf wall and privet hedge. The drive continues through a five bar gate on the eastern side of the house up to the double garage beyond. Constructed with brick elevations under a tiled roof, this has two up and over doors, light, power, concrete floor and a personal door at the side. Wide wooden stairs lead up to a fully boarded storage area above. Behind the garage is the oil storage tank. The entrance drive also continues along the western side of the house to provide further parking space. Adjoining the conservatory at the rear of the house is an extensive paved terrace from where there are delightful views. The main garden lies to the rear of the house and is arranged as lovely wide level lawns with an assortment of flower beds, flower borders, trees and shrubs. Along the western boundary is an attractive former granary of mellowed brick under a tiled roof which is within the ownership of the adjoining property. There are lovely views over open farmland up to an ancient copse and also views across to the village church. The property extends in all to about half an acre.
