Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A stunning, colonial style 5 bedroom detached house set in gardens of approximately 3/4 of an acre. Built in 1992, this stylish and distinctive home is reminiscent of a plantation mansion in the southern states of America, and offers spacious, flexible accommodation including 4 reception rooms, 3 bathrooms, a substantial garden studio and double garaging. The house was extended in 2000 and has subsequently undergone a programme of refurbishment including refitting of the bathrooms and kitchen/breakfast room.

The Dixies is set in an established residential area with easy access to the centre of Ferndown (which provides an excellent range of shops, doctors' surgery, library and schools for all age groups) and to the A31 and M27 connecting to the surrounding area. It is within easy driving distance of the coastal towns of Poole and Bournemouth, both of which have mainline rail links to London Waterloo.

Number 569 benefits from a security alarm system (with smart control), UPVC double glazing and gas central heating, the boiler for which was replaced about 7 years ago.

There is an impressive full height portico entrance with double doors to an entrance way with a gallery above, an under stairs storage cupboard and a cloakroom with WC and wash basin.

The dual aspect lounge features a limestone fireplace (with inset multifuel fire) and patio door to the rear conservatory, which has double doors to the garden. Double doors from the lounge lead to a spacious study with a tilt-and-slide patio door to the garden. There is also a spacious dining room.

There is a superb, triple aspect open plan kitchen/breakfast room with double doors to the garden. The kitchen has been refitted with contemporary style high gloss units, granite worktops, a Rangemaster range cooker (with 5-burner gas hob, electric hotplate and 2 electric ovens), cooker hood, integrated Bosch fridge-freezer and wine cooler.

The separate utility room has twin sinks, granite worktops, space and plumbing for washing machine and dishwasher, gas central heating boiler and broom cupboard.

The galleried first floor landing has access to the roof space, and an airing cupboard (containing a pressurised hot water cylinder).

An impressive feature is the large master bedroom suite. The dual aspect bedroom has a built-in double wardrobe, a recently refurbished, fully tiled en suite bath/shower room (with bath, shower cubicle, twin wash basins and WC) and a spacious dressing room (with range of built-in and fitted wardrobes) which can also be accessed from the landing.

Bedroom 2 has a built-in wardrobe and a refurbished, fully tiled en suite shower room (with walk-in shower, WC and wash basin). Bedrooms 3 and 4 are doubles, and there is a family bath/shower room with bath, shower cubicle, wash basin and WC.

From Wimborne, Road East, a pillared entrance way with electric gates leads to a gravel driveway serving the 3 properties. Number 569 is accessed via a further brick pillared entrance way leading to its private drive which is block paved and provides ample off road parking. There is a double garage (constructed in 2006) with up-and-over electric door, lighting and power points, side window and door, and pitched roof providing eaves storage space.

The landscaped grounds extend all around the property and include a substantial garden office/studio (measuring approximately 8m x 4m) with lighting and power points, and a timber gazebo which provides an attractive covered seating area. There is a kitchen garden, and paved terraces ideal for alfresco dining, along with shaped lawns and well stocked shrub beds. The garden extending to the side of the house affords a large degree of privacy. Number 569 also owns a natural woodland area to the far side of the shared driveway.

DIRECTIONS: From Wimborne, proceed east along Leigh Road and Wimborne Road West to the Canford Bottom gyratory. Take the third exit and follow Wimborne Road West and Wimborne Road East to Ferndown. At the junction with West Moors Road, continue ahead, passing the left hand turning to Badgers Walk. The Dixies 569 can be found on the left hand side before reaching the Sainsburys roundabout.
