Urban & Country Homes. Holt Forest lies to the north of the popular market town of Wimborne. `Oaklands` is a custom built, and in our opinion spacious detached home nestling in grounds approaching 2.5 acres. The property has been lovingly designed and constructed to the current owners exacting standards. The versatile accommodation is set out over 2 floors and offers significant potential to increase the number of bedrooms to 7.
The accommodation currently includes 3 double bedrooms positioned on the ground floor and serviced by 2 family bathrooms. The principal rooms are thoughtfully located at the rear of the property and include a stunning dual aspect lounge/dining room with feature fireplace and functioning wood burner, further complemented by a generous fitted kitchen and utility room.
The first floor is one large studio style open space. Approximately 40ft x 40ft to its widest points this area was originally designed to accommodate 4 double bedrooms. For those wishing to increase the number of bedrooms from 4 to 7 this is eminently achievable with little modification. We would like to point out that whilst the potential is clear, any structural alterations would require the relevant planning and building regulation approvals.
`Oaklands` occupies beautiful grounds which extend to approximately 2.5 acres of garden with shrubbery, orchard, ponds, and wooded areas, `Oaklands` enjoys a secluded location on a bridle track in Holt Forest, an ancient oak forest owned by the National Trust. Holt Forest adjoins Holt Wood and Holt Heath and extensive meadow land. Despite having more than 1200 acres of nature reserve open to the public, Holt Forest is not well known and not extensively visited, a jewel in the crown of local heritage that few have the privilege of enjoying on a daily basis.
