Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

An individual 4 double bedroom detached family home situated in the sought after Whiteways, a small cul-de-sac off Beaucroft Lane, on the fringe of Wimborne town centre. Built in 1952, The Hebrides has been occupied by the present owners since 1982 and is now being offered for sale with NO FORWARD CHAIN.

The Hebrides has an interesting, non-standard layout, including a useful lined loft accessed via a formal staircase from the first floor landing. The house was extended in 1989 and 1997 and now offers excellent accommodation of over 2500 square feet, arranged on 2 floors.

The house has 8 solar panels which produce a total energy saving of between 1300 and 1500 per year.

Wimborne town centre is within walking distance and offers an excellent range of amenities. Schools and churches are close by, including St Johns First School, St Michael's Middle School and Dumpton Preparatory School at Furzehill.

On the ground floor, a large, L-shaped entrance hall has double doors to an impressive sitting room (with open fireplace, wood burning stove and double doors to the gardens.) There are also double doors leading to the separate dining room, and a large study.

An archway from the hall leads to the impressive kitchen/breakfast room, which was designed to a high specification by the present owners, including an excellent range of Lansdowne natural oak base cupboards, drawers and wall cupboards, and feature olive granite work surfaces with inset garnets and semi-precious stones, and matching upstands.

There is a Franke stainless steel sink unit and an island unit with a solid walnut top.

The comprehensive range of built-in appliances includes a Bosch double fan oven, Neff microwave, Fisher & Paykel American style fridge-freezer, Bosch integrated dishwasher, Neff 4-plate ceramic hob, gas wok burner and state-of-the-art Stoves extractor. The kitchen also benefits from full height food storage cupboards, downlighters and an integrated recycling bin.

On the first floor there are 4 spacious double bedrooms, a bathroom and 2 shower rooms (one of which is en suite.) The galleried landing has a workstation area and a staircase leading to the attic rooms.

Outside, a 5-bar gate gives access to a large pavioured driveway/courtyard with space for numerous vehicles, and a large attached single garage (with up-and-over doors to the front and rear), and solar panels to the garage roof.

The rear garden, which enjoys a southerly aspect, is enclosed by close boarded fencing and walling and there is an established tree line on the boundary. A large, circular lawn is set in a pavioured surround, and the garden is planted with a wealth of trees and shrubs including palms and camellias. There are 2 goldfish ponds, a rockery, paved terracing, raised beds, 2 substantial studio/workshops with light and power, and a garden shed.
