Full description

Fine and Country Homes from Edwards are pleased to present a highly individual detached thatched cottage combining traditional character and charm with exceptional internal light and vibrancy. It is set within professionally-landscaped gardens featuring innovative prairie-style planting with an exceptional range of grasses and choice perennials. Although on the edge of farmland, the cottage is just four or five minutes' drive from Wimborne town centre. Offering two/three double bedrooms and three/four reception rooms, it is bursting with imaginative features and in immaculate order. Viewing is a must to appreciate all it offers - especially for the garden lover.

This charming home has a wealth of character features with rendered elevations beneath a thatched water reed roof, leaded light windows and appealing 'Oriel' style (cantilevered) windows at first floor level. Internally the property exudes a cosy ambience befitting its era and offers well proportioned living space. The main entrance door to the property is set within a glazed, hardwood timber porch with thatched roof and opens to a generous entrance hall with quarry tile floor and open-plan study area with dual-aspect windows overlooking the garden.

A few steps rise to a triple aspect lounge with a feature stone fireplace. Opening glazed doors lead to the garden.

From the hall, door opens to a ground floor bathroom fitted with shower, basin and low level WC.

A further door opens to a well proportioned kitchen/breakfast room. The kitchen, with window overlooking the front of the property, is fitted with cream fronted, shaker style base and wall units with wooden worktop over. Range style cooker. Quarry tiled floor. Space for under counter free standing white goods. Inset 1.5 bowl stainless steel sink with mixer tap. Part tiled walls. The breakfast room has windows to front and rear as well as separate entrance porch with ledge and brace door. Woodburning stove set in inglenook with feature bread oven and bressumer beam above.

Steps from the breakfast area lead down to a well proportioned dining room, with leaded light windows on three aspects. Further features include parquet flooring and feature ceiling timber beams as well as a brick built open fireplace with hearth.

From the kitchen, stairs rise to the first floor landing where there is a bathroom fitted with a roll top, claw foot bath, vanity wash hand basin and low level WC. Throughout the first floor there are feature ceiling timber beams.

A door from the landing leads to the master bedroom with a feature Oriel window overlooking the garden plus a Velux window offering extensive natural light. A door with restricted height gives access to a snug room - currently used as a home office - which features an exceptional degree of light thanks to two Velux windows and a window to the end elevation.

Returning to the landing, door leads to bedroom two with airing cupboard and window overlooking the front garden. Two steps lead to a separate dressing room with dual built-in wardrobes - which is flooded with light from triple-aspect windows. This room could alternatively be used as a third double bedroom.

The extensive grounds are bounded by natural hedging and landscaping providing a haven for birds and wildlife. There are wide gravelled, stepped paths, two feature ponds, and a large and secluded paved patio ideal for outdoor entertaining. Prairie-style plantings lead to a ‘woodland walk’ through mature shrubs and trees, opening onto a lawned area surrounded by specimen grasses and perennials.

The property includes a very large oak-clad garage/workshop with feature mullion window. It currently provides car parking, a workshop area with fitted bench, and utility area with washing machine, dryer, and freezer. Extensive loft storage is accessed by a built-in ladder.
