An impressive late Victorian character residence, offering a wealth of accommodation in a very convenient central location. The property was, we understand, built in the late 19th Century and considerably extended in the late 1980's for use as a residential care home.
The imposing elevations are mainly of red brick with yellow brick quoins and bay windows, under a slate roof. The exterior is enhanced by original features including the conservatory entrance porch, decorative barge boards, terracotta ridge tiles, and a stained glass sash window on the landing. Internally the house retains many original features including the impressive staircase, superb fire surrounds, decorative tiled floors, ceiling cornices, architraves and skirting boards.
The flexible accommodation, which is on three floors, could be arranged in many different permutations to suit a purchaser's own needs. There is huge scope for re-modelling or annexe potential subject, of course, to any necessary permissions being obtained.
The house has the benefit of gas fired central heating via twin boilers, and most of the non-original windows are UPVC double glazed sash windows. In addition, far reaching open views can be obtained from some of the upper floor windows.

Wrought iron gates and a wide shingle driveway to the side of the house lead to the detached single Garage. In addition to parking for numerous cars along the driveway, there is a tarmacadam parking area at the front. The front garden is lawned with established shrubs along the boundary wall. The private rear garden has a paved terrace running across the back of the house, and is mainly lawned with surrounding well stocked shrub and flower borders, providing an attractive setting.

Square Footage: 4,997 sq ft


From Wimborne centre, proceed east along the B3703 Leigh Road. At the first set of traffic lights turn left into St Johns Hill and Ashleigh, number 7 can be found after about 200m on the left hand side.
