Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Whitefriars is a superb 5/6 bedroom modern family house with triple garaging, SET ON A LARGE, SOUTH WEST FACING GARDEN PLOT OF ABOUT 0.37 OF AN ACRE, in the popular Queens Copse Lane in Holtwood.

Constructed in 1995 by a well known local development company, and owned by our clients since then, the house offers excellent accommodation including 5 first floor double bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, 2 of which are en suite, and a walk-in airing cupboard.

Whitefriars offers a spacious reception hallway and 3 separate reception rooms (one of which could easily be used as a sixth bedroom with an en suite shower room). There is a large kitchen/breakfast room, a utility room and a ground floor cloakroom.

Situated about 6 miles north of Wimborne Minster, Queens Copse Lane is tucked well away from the village road and backs directly onto Forestry Commission land partly owned by the National Trust. Holtwood is a hamlet between the villages of Holt, Gaunts Common and Horton, about 10 minutes' drive from Wimborne town centre and within easy reach of the Bournemouth/Poole conurbation. There is a First School at Gaunts Common, and the preparatory school at Dumpton is within a few minutes' drive.

There are excellent private schools in the area including Canford School, Castle Court, Dumpton, Clayesmore and Bryanston together with the well known Poole and Parkstone Grammar Schools.

Whitefriars benefits from an integral double garage, a separate single garage and superb, lawned, south west facing gardens enclosed by high close boarded fencing and hedges. The house has an LPG heating system, mainly timber double glazed windows and a mains drainage system.

An open-fronted entrance porch with a quarry tiled floor and double entrance doors leads into the wide reception hallway, which has under stairs storage space. A feature of the sitting room, which has sliding doors to outside, is an open fireplace with attractive oak and marble surround, and inset coal effect gas fire. Sliding doors from the dining room give a fine outlook onto the garden.

The kitchen/breakfast room, which is light and airy and overlooks the garden, has a comprehensive range of pine cupboards and drawers, space for a table and 6 chairs, and various appliances. The large utility room has doors to the outside and the garage.

From Queens Copse, a 5-bar gate leads into a gravelled courtyard and to the integral double garage (with up-and-over doors.) A driveway at the side leads to a detached single garage which was built by the present owners in 1996. At the rear there is a substantial workshop/garden store.

The front garden, which is enclosed by mixed hedgerows, provides off road parking and has a lawn and a blue Norwegian Pine tree.

The rear garden is a particular feature, being enclosed by close boarded fencing and mixed hedgerows, with a large lawn and colourful flower and shrub borders, and fruit trees. There is a large paved terrace, a water butt, a rose garden, and a large fruit garden area with a greenhouse.
