Full description

10 Bedrooms - 7 Bathrooms - 7 Living Rooms - Rural Privacy - The Spinney is a stunning and secluded property with additional self contained accommodation and games room set in five acres of beautiful and well manicured grounds at the end of a private driveway that services three properties alone in what is highly regarded as one of the premier postcodes within Dorset with the added benefit of being offered with vacant possession. The main residence was initially the woodman's dwelling on the historic 'Lord Wimborne Estate'. Arrowsmith Road backs on to Canford Heath nature reserve SSSI Site and is a winding semi rural country lane just a short drive from the market town of Wimborne Minster and the historic port town of Poole. With access to the heathland the property would suit equestrian needs ideally. Just a bit further out is the New Forest National Park in one direction and the award winning Sandbanks beaches and Jurassic Coast in the other. Local independent schools include Canford, Bryanstone, Castle Court and Dumpton, all of which boast excellent credentials.
Parts of the original dwelling date back to the nineteenth century and the current owners who have resided in this magnificent residence for over a quarter of a century have overseen extensive additions and renovations to create the stunning residence that it is today. With a background as a builder focusing on listed buildings it is easy to see why all modern alterations are in keeping with a picture postcard age beyond its years. On entry the reception hall sets the scene for what is in the agent's opinion a perfect example of a large Dorset rural home. This delightful room has protruding ceiling beams with the inglenook fireplace and log burner taking centre stage.
The formal dining room fits a large dining room table and multiple seating for extended family and guests, again with a stunning fireplace and in keeping with its bygone environment. The dining room is currently used as a study with multiple aspects and access to the lawn with lovely views across the lake and fountain. The L - shaped character and beamed fitted kitchen boasts a range of limed oak base and eye level units with a Franco Belge range oven set into a brick alcove with space for breakfast table and chairs with further access to the utility room. A further oak panelled study and large Victorian style, pitch roofed conservatory with multiple aspects over the grounds complete the ground floor.
The first floor accommodation consists of five bedrooms with solid broad plank oak and elm flooring and wrought iron fittings characterising its beauty. The master bedroom is impressive with stunning views across the gardens, complete with en suite bathroom. The guest bedroom, with en suite facilities, and a large family bathroom of a similar specification are also present on the first floor.
Externally there is a large games room with vaulted ceiling that was originally planned as a feature swimming pool. This could easily be reinstated if so desired whilst still retaining its character.
If more space for guests or additional family members is required there are plentiful options. With additional self contained accommodation there is room for live in staff such as a nanny, gardener or housekeeper and for children or parents who want a bit more independence. A double garage, oak framed car port and large workshops complete this vast array of accommodation that extends to approximately 6902 sq ft.
The picturesque grounds incorporate a stone terrace with wisteria covered walkway and pergola. There is a feature raised gazebo with barbecue area, private lawns, Lake and Tennis Court. A secluded arboretum with specimen trees and further gazebo completes the grounds. The entirety of the grounds hosts a large array of flora and fauna and must be viewed to be fully appreciated. Please contact your selling agents The St Quintin Property Group for more details.
