Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Ashleigh is an impressive, late Victorian 10 bedroom detached house situated on the favoured St Johns Hill, on the fringe of Wimborne town centre, within walking distance of many of the town's schools and other amenities.

SET ON A SUPERB, SLIGHTLY ELEVATED, WEST FACING SITE WHICH EXTENDS TO OVER A THIRD OF AN ACRE, ASHLEIGH HAS SOME OUTSTANDING SOUTHERLY AND WESTERLY VIEWS TOWARDS THE POOLE COASTLINE.

The house was built circa 1890 as a family home and remained so until 1985 when planning permission was obtained to operate Ashleigh as a care home. The current owners ran such a business there between 1988 and 2014.

Ashleigh extends in total to over 4,700 square feet and offers great potential for development as a large family home, or for use as practice rooms or offices, subject to the necessary planning consents. There is a large detached single garage and a parking area for up to 10 vehicles.

The house has most impressive brick elevations, ornate box bay windows, standout brick quoins, and a high slate roof with clay ridge tiles and 2 tall brick chimneys. The house is also noted for its attractive porch entrance, and a large single storey extension (with 2 brick gables and matching slate roof) was completed in 1990.

The gardens are private and have been landscaped with a large area of lawn, a wealth of shrubs and an established palm tree.

Connected to all mains services including gas, electricity, water and drainage, the house has gas central heating (with 2 boilers,) UPVC double glazed sash windows almost throughout, and cavity wall insulation. Significant features include some ornate quarry tiled flooring, original doors, architraves and skirtings, ceiling cornicing and an impressive oak staircase. The principal rooms have original marble and cast iron fireplaces.

COUNCIL TAX: Band G

DIRECTIONS: From Wimborne town centre, proceed east along Leigh Road. At the junction with Avenue Road and St Johns Hill, turn left and proceed up St Johns Hill. Ashleigh can be found about half way up, on the left hand side.
