The Property

This interesting property was built in 1873 and has been locally listed as a heritage asset. Now newly refurbished and sympathetically modernised throughout to a high specification whilst retaining many period features and benefitting from a large rear extension creating an outstanding open plan living area.

The property is entered via the original arched front door leading to a reception hall with a built in under stairs storage cupboard and internal oak latch braced doors. The front reception room has an open fireplace and if required could be used as a fourth bedroom. There is an internal kitchen presenting a quality range of fitted units with fully integrated appliances and granite work surfaces.

Located to the rear of the property is a light and spacious open plan family/dining room with oak flooring and extensive bi-fold doors opening onto the garden. There are also three bedrooms all served by a luxuriously equipped family bath/shower room.

Outside there is a beautifully landscaped rear garden with a large patio area immediately adjoining the property and a further lawn with flowerbed borders all enclosed by timber fencing. The front brick block driveway provides parking for two vehicles and the front shingled garden provides an ideal bin storage area.

History

The so-called Lady Wimborne Cottages are distinctive buildings to be found all over the Wimborne family’s Canford Estate. 111 cottages were built for estate workers from 1867 onwards, mostly as semi-detached pairs but with a few variations, by Lady Charlotte Guest, whose husband, Sir John Guest (an iron foundry magnate), had bought the Canford Manor Estate in 1846. Their son, Ivor, was created Lord Wimborne in 1880 and his wife, Lady Cornelia Wimborne, continued the philanthropic project until 1904. They retain their original numbers, which do not equate to street addresses, above the doorways.

The Gothic revivalist design was drafted by Sir Charles Barry junior (son of the architect of the House of Parliament). Most were built by George Jennings, who adapted the design to local usage, using local bricks from his South Western pottery. The residential cottages all display a terracotta plaque bearing the coat of arms of the Wimborne family and a number denoting the chronological order of construction.
