Wimborne combines a quintessential English market town with a 21st century lifestyle. Beneath the 12th century Minster, Wimborne’s picturesque market square and quaint streets offer a mix of quality independents and high street shops, regular markets and a selection of cafes, restaurants and Inns. Other facilities include the Art Deco Tivoli Theatre, community hospital, recreation grounds for a variety of activities, and golf courses at Canford Magna and Remedy Oak Golf Clubs. The larger coastal towns of Bournemouth and Poole with their beautiful beaches are approximately 10 miles south, whilst the easily accessible A31 links to Southampton (approximately 30 miles east via the M27), and London beyond (approximately a 2 hour drive via the M3/M25).
An impressive reception hall leads to the main living accommodation with open fireplaces in both the main living room and sitting room. There are two further reception rooms currently used as a dining room and family room, each with double doors opening on to the gardens. Adjacent is the kitchen/ breakfast room, fitted with a good range of units with all electric appliances, including double oven and hob and space for a dishwasher, and a recessed, built in wood burning stove. The large separate utility room has appliance space for washing machine and a fridge/ freezer with door giving access to the double garage. From the first floor landing are five bedrooms and two bathrooms suites (one en-suite to bedroom one). The majority of the bedrooms have a delightful aspect over the rear gardens, with bedrooms one, two and three also with access onto a good sized balcony. The adjoining two storey self-contained annexe comprises two reception rooms, cloakroom and kitchen/ breakfast room on the ground floor and two double bedrooms and bathroom on the first floor.
Outside the property is approached through two large pillars and electric gates along a sweeping drive to a paviour parking forecourt and access to the integral garages.
A five bar gate leads to a further drive, which then follows on to the outbuildings and paddocks.
There is a useful two storey brick built out building/garage complex, which was previously used as an office and lends itself to converting into additional or ancillary accommodation to the main house (subject to building regulation approval).
The formal gardens are well tended which are mainly laid to lawn interspersed with specimen trees and shrubs and a walkway leads to the swimming pool complex with indoor heated pool and changing rooms.
The paddocks are well kept with self-filling water supply and two stable blocks, totalling nine loose boxes plus two tack rooms.
