Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A stunning, Grade II Listed 5 bedroom semi-detached period town house, which has been restored and refurbished to a high standard in recent years, within walking distance of The Square and many of Wimborne's town centre amenities.


Dating back to the 19th century, this impressive property is presented in excellent decorative condition and retains much of its period character and charm. The house was extended during the 19th and 20th centuries and now amounts to just over 3300 square feet of accommodation.

Dewlish is situated at the edge of Wimborne town centre, at the junction of Lewens and Park Lanes, within the conservation area, and has colour-washed, rendered elevations under a high slate roof with tall brick chimneys.

Since the current residents took ownership in 2011, major works have been undertaken including re-wiring, an overhaul of the roof, installation of a new gas heating boiler, and replacement of the sub-floors to the majority of the ground floor. All four bathrooms have been re-fitted, and there is wide oak boarding through the majority of the ground floor.

Character features include the original winding staircase, 3 open fireplaces and stripped pine doors throughout.

There is a large, almost square reception hall, a spacious living room, and a characterful sitting room with 2 windows to the front elevation. There is a family room and a utility room, and a superb contemporary style kitchen with curved high gloss units, quartz work surfaces, a large island unit and a range of built-in appliances including double oven, integrated fridge, freezer and dishwasher. Off the kitchen, the dining room has superb, full width bi-folding doors to the terrace and garden.

The master bedroom boasts a magnificent en suite bathroom with a contemporary free-standing bath tub and a double shower.

Dewlish is connected to all mains services and has gas central heating and original sash windows with secondary double glazing to the front. The house has been re-decorated throughout.

Vehicular access is off Lewens Close to the rear of the property. Access across a gravelled driveway leads through substantial ledged and braced timber gates to a large, pavioured courtyard. There is excellent parking, and ample space to erect a garage or carport (subject to planning consent.)

The garden is mainly walled and offers privacy. It has been beautifully landscaped with lawn, an Indian sandstone terrace and pathways, and colourful flower and shrub beds including a wealth of plants and a yew tree. There are 2 water butts.

EPC: Exempt due to Grade II Listed status.
