4 bedroom detached house for sale

Long Lane, Wimborne, Dorset, BH21


Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

The Warren is a delightful, 4 bedroom detached 17th century thatched cottage SITUATED ON A MAGNIFICENT SITE OF JUST UNDER 2 ACRES, in a rural position at the junction of Long Lane and Deans Drove, and yet only half a mile from Wimborne town centre.

The Warren was built around 1650 by the Bankes Estate as a small, 2 bedroom farm cottage, but has been substantially extended in recent years, now providing nearly 1800 square feet of living accommodation on 2 floors, which are accessible by 2 separate staircases. The cottage offers great potential for further extension, subject to the necessary planning consent.

Burts Hill runs from Walford, on the north side of Wimborne town centre, to Smugglers Lane, which continues into Colehill. Wimborne offers an excellent range of shopping facilities (including a Waitrose store) and schools and churches of various denominations are close by. The popular preparatory school, Dumpton, is within 100 yards' walk.

The Warren will appeal to purchasers with an equestrian interest, having a large paddock of well over an acre, with a separate access onto Deans Drove. There are also 2 stables and a tack room.

The cottage has many interesting features including a large living room and a sitting room (with secondary staircase to a first floor bedroom.) An inner hallway leads to a large kitchen/breakfast room with access to the garden, and a gas Rayburn range (set in a brick recess) which serves as a cooker and provides central heating and hot water. Off the main staircase there are 3 further bedrooms, a bathroom and a shower room.

Outside, there is a large triple garage block over which there is a one bedroom flat.

The Warren is approached through an electric 5-bar gate which leads into a large gravelled courtyard with parking for numerous vehicles. There is an attached office with an external, self-contained entrance.

The oldest part of the cottage is cob. The extension to the right is brick under a tiled roof, and the extension at the back is rendered block under a thatch roof.The garage is timber clad with a steep plain tiled roof.

DIRECTIONS: From the traffic lights at the bottom of Stone Lane, proceed towards Cranborne, going over Walford Bridge. Take the third turning on the right into Burts Hill. Having passed Giddylake (on the right,) proceed past the first left hand turning to Deans Grove, and past The Horns Inn, at which point Burts Hill becomes Long Lane. Immediately after the second left hand turning to Deans Grove, turn left into a driveway which leads to The Warren.
