Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A charming 3 storey, Grade II Listed Georgian detached house set in gardens and grounds extending to over 0.4 of an acre in the heart of Canford Magna village, offered for sale with NO FORWARD CHAIN.

Dating back to circa 1780, this spacious 5 bedroom character family home boasts many original features and has been occupied by the present owners for about 25 years. During this time, The Brook has been renovated and restored to a very good standard by the owners' own building company.

In addition there is a detached former coach/groom house incorporating garaging, studio and workshop, which could be used as an independent relative's suite or, subject to planning permission, for holiday lets. The Brook and its coach house are set in beautifully maintained gardens which feature a free-flowing brook (with Victorian embankments and 2 timber bridges) which originates within Broadstone Golf Course and flows into the River Stour at Canford.

Canford Magna, a pretty village just 2 miles south of the market town of Wimborne Minster, is home to the renowned co-educational and independent Canford School. Wimborne offers an excellent range of retail and recreational facilities along its famous winding Norman streets, and the larger resort towns of Poole and Bournemouth are within about 20 minutes' drive.

The Brook has 3 attractive reception rooms with dado panelling, cornicing and carpeted floors. The kitchen/breakfast room (which has a gas fired Aga,) and the boot/laundry room have quarry tiled floors, and there is a larder.

On the first floor, the dual aspect master bedroom features a full range of custom-made, oak-lined wardrobes, and an en suite bathroom. There are 2 further spacious bedrooms, a study area and a family bathroom. The second floor has 2 further double bedrooms (with built-in wardrobes.)

The house is approached from the village road via a pavioured slipway which leads into a gravelled parking area for 4 or 5 vehicles. A gate then leads into a courtyard between the house and the detached former coach house, which incorporates garaging, a workshop, a studio and a toilet. On the first floor there is a superb area with exposed A-frame timbers - an ideal home working or play area. It may also be possible to obtain planning permission for holiday accommodation.

The gardens are a superb feature of the property, being well enclosed by high brick capped walling, a natural tree line, hedges and rhododendrons. 2 bridges cross the brook, which keeps water all year round.

The boundaries comprise large oak, sycamore, holly and pine trees, offering almost complete privacy, and the gardens feature a stone terrace, shingle pathways and several sitting areas.

The Brook and the coach house are connected by a covered walkway which crosses an enclosed courtyard. Attached to the coach house there is a Hartley Botanic aluminium-framed conservatory with brick walls and a limestone tiled floor. There is an arbour with wisteria and climbing roses.

DIRECTIONS: From Wimborne, proceed south along Poole Road, over Canford Bridge and up Oakley Hill. Just before the Willett Arms, turn left into Oakley Lane. Proceed into Canford Magna, following the road round the right hand bend at the entrance to Canford School. The Brook can be found on the right hand side before reaching the junction with Magna Road.

COUNCIL TAX: Band G.

EPC: Exempt due to Listed status.
