Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Bushmead is a delightful 3 double-bedroom Grade II listed Victorian cottage, formerly part of the Pitt-Rivers museum on the fringe of Farnham village. Elham Court is a group of eleven cottages set in a most attractive enclave about half a mile from the centre of Farnham, and within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB.)

Elham Court was originally a private farmhouse, then used as a school in the mid-19th Century; the famous archaeologist General Augustus Pitt-Rivers adapted the building in the late Victorian times and it was used as his museum. In the 1980's the main building was converted into three private houses and the galleries to the rear were converted into further character homes. Bushmead is a most attractive building with mainly rendered elevations, a high front gable with four prominent gables all under an ornate clay tiled roof and high brick chimneys. The property is connected to mains electricity and water, and has a private drainage system and LPG heating system. Also, quality timber double-glazed windows and doors with a factory finish were fitted by Newglaze in 2015. Bushmead is presented in truly excellent decorative condition throughout, with quality oak flooring in the drawing room and dining room, and the outside has been decorated just recently.

On the ground floor, there is a dining hall (with oak-boarded flooring,) cloakroom, superb drawing room (with oak-boarded flooring and double-door access to the garden,) kitchen (with beech work surfaces, excellent range of fitted cupboards and drawers, built-in appliances, and door to a delightful courtyard.) To the first floor, there are 3 good sized double bedrooms and a bathroom/shower room.

Outside, there is a single garage, and 3 designated parking spaces. The gardens and terracing are an outstanding feature of the cottage being private and well maintained. They are mainly laid to lawn and enclosed by laurel hedgerows, post-and-rail fencing and a mixed tree line. There is a large entertaining terrace to the side of the property, leading to a secluded courtyard to the rear of the property, ideal for a kitchen garden. Bushmead will attract purchasers seeking a sizeable house that extends to nearly 1400 square feet of living space and is set in a rural community, easy accessible to the towns of Salisbury, Blandford Forum and Wimborne Minster.

Directions: From Wimborne, proceed north on the Wimborne to Cranborne Road (B3078) for about 5 miles. Turn left at the Horton Inn, signposted the Gussages. Proceed through the valley for about 4 miles. On reaching the Blandford to Salisbury Road (A354), proceed straight across, signposted Farnham. Take the first turning on the left hand side and, after approximately half a mile, Elham Court can be seen on the right hand side. Enter Elham Court shortly after the 2 pillars on the right. Park by the hedge on the left, and walk down the (first) drive to the front door of Bushmead.
