AN 18TH century home set in the Cranborne Chase that is "brimming with character" is on the market for £1,100,000.

The Old Foundry, which dates from 1725, is located at the heart of the village of Tollard Royal.

The four bedroom home offers spacious and well-presented accommodation as well as having its own detached, one bedroom annex.

The front door opens into a delightful sitting room/dining room, with wooden floor-boards and a charming inglenook fireplace and fitted wood-burning stove.
