Hinton Martell is a picturesque setting between the villages of Witchampton, Gaunts Common (both of which have First Schools) and Horton and about 10 minutes' drive from the market town of Wimborne Minster which offers an excellent range of schools and amenities. The wider area is well served by independent schools including Queen Elizabeth's, Dumpton, Castle Court and Canford, and there is good access by road to the coastal resorts of Poole and Bournemouth, both of which have mainline rail links to London Waterloo.

Traditionally built circa 1760 with a brick plinth, lime-rendered cob walls, exposed brick features, and a high ridged thatched roof with 2 brick chimneys, St Mary Magdalene Cottage benefits from mains water and electricity, private drainage and oil fired central heating.

This charming country homes has many outstanding features including a wealth of exposed beams and timbers, oak boarded floors, 2 impressive brick open fireplaces (one of which has a wood burning stove) and generous ceiling heights with at least 7ft clearance in most rooms.

There is a large living room with a full height brick open fireplace, exposed ceiling beams and timbers, attractive views onto the front garden, and glazed double doors to a garden/play room.

A particular feature of the cottage is the superb kitchen/dining/family room which has glazed timber casement doors giving superb views of the garden, a skylight, an oak boarded floor, an inglenook fireplace with bressummer beam, wood burning stove and bread oven, a dresser, a curved wall, a Victorian style cylinder radiator and a bespoke handmade kitchen. There is an excellent range of units (with cup handles), a Rangemaster Classic range cooker set in a tiled recess (with extractor), and an integrated fridge, freezer and dishwasher.

There is a long split level first floor landing. The dual aspect master bedroom overlooks the gardens and boasts a dressing area (with fitted dressing table and wardrobes) and an en suite shower room.

There are 2 further double bedrooms, both of which have cupboards, and a family bathroom (which would benefit from refurbishment).
