Property details

Inside

Welcome to Rushmore Cottage, converted in the 1980s from the Pitt-Rivers Museum, originally owned by Lieutenant General Pitt-Rivers, and famous for showcasing anthropological and social history collections, as well as archaeological objects from Cranborne Chase. Rushmore Cottage originally formed part of the galleries that sit behind the main body of the museum building; a most enviable position enjoying privacy and stunning rural vistas.

The property is entered via the ENTRANCE LOBBY, the perfect space for coats and muddy boots. Off here is the CLOAKROOM complete with WC and hand-wash basin, and a glazed door opens into the HALLWAY. The characterful SITTING ROOM boasts fantastic, full height windows and a wood-burner with cast iron surround. This room, like the rest of the property, is tastefully finished, with décor that would complement an array of furniture styles. Double doors lead through to the DINING ROOM, another well-proportioned space with plenty of room for a generous dining table. Through an archway from the dining room is the KITCHEN, which is contemporary and light, and overlooking the rear garden. Integrated appliances include Lamona™ double oven and Lamona™ four-ring gas hob with extractor over, plus space for further white goods.

A door opens from the dining room into newly created SUMMER ROOM. This charming space is a delightful retreat in all weather, allowing an open outlook which takes in the beautiful garden and the wonderful views beyond. Accessible from the hallway, the UTILITY ROOM concludes the ground floor accommodation, and is a useful, well-equipped space. There is an under-stair storage space to one side, with worktop, storage cupboards, and space and plumbing for three white goods to the other. An exterior door opens from here to the rear garden.

Stairs rise and turn from the dining room to the FIRST FLOOR LANDING, where there is a useful storage cupboard. The PRINCIPAL BEDROOM is a beautiful space, enjoying lovely views over and beyond the long rear garden. BEDROOM TWO is a double room to the front of the property, and BEDROOM THREE is a single room currently used as an office/dressing room. The FAMILY BATHROOM includes a shower cubicle, WC, hand-wash basin and heated towel rail. From the landing, a further staircase rises to the SECOND FLOOR. This attic space has been divided into two rooms, but could be returned to one if so desired.

Outside

The communal space to the front of the property is a well maintained and planted space, filled with colour in the summer months. The GARAGE is accessible from here, complete with power and an electric up-and-over door. There is also plentiful storage in the eaves above.

The REAR GARDEN comprises three sections. The first is a low-maintenance space, with a PATIO abutting the property. The second is a gravelled area featuring a pergola and timber SHED. The last portion is a pleasant area of LAWN with an apple tree, and a further patio from which to enjoy the stunning sunsets. An area of lawn beyond this leads to a path that can be used as rear access from the front, and enjoys the most wonderful views of the surrounding rural scenery.

Location

A beautiful rural village on the borders of Cranborne Chase, Farnham was once famous as the original location of the Pitt-Rivers Museum, now converted into this beautiful development. Within the village is the popular Museum Inn public house, and the parish Church of St Lawrence, an attractive medieval building with additional Victorian remodelling. The village also boasts a network of footpaths and bridleways, some leading to nearby Chettle, home to a quaint and well-stocked village shop.

Nearby Larmer Tree Gardens hosts a long-standing yearly festival, and the local Rushmore Park Golf Club has a reputation for being a challenging course, with the unusual distinction of having nine holes in Dorset and nine in Wiltshire. Just seven miles away is the market town of Blandford Forum, and London is easily accessible via Salisbury station (12 miles away), from which a train service to London Waterloo takes just over one hour 30 minutes.
