Price Guide: £825,000-£850,000 Freehold.

An imposing 3 bedroom, 3 reception room Victorian home on the favoured Rowlands Hill, within walking distance of Wimborne town centre. This impressive character home stands on a slightly elevated site extending to just under half an acre, with superb southerly views over Wimborne.

Langley is IN NEED OF COMPLETE RENOVATION AND RESTORATION, but offers great potential for extension or creation of a building plot, subject to planning consent. It will appeal to purchasers seeking to transform a character building (in a convenient location at the edge of the town centre) into a superb family home.

Although not detached, Langley forms the greater part of a large Victorian home which dates back to around 1871. It is traditionally built, with mellow brick elevations, an attractive stone bay, a high ridged natural slate roof and 2 tall large chimney stacks. Connected to mains electricity, water and drainage, the property has oil fired heating. Gas is available in the road. Features include a cellar and character features including fireplaces, ceiling cornicing and picture rails.

Wimborne town centre offers an excellent range of shops and leisure facilities, and there is easy access to the coastal towns of Poole and Bournemouth, both of which have mainline rail links to London Waterloo. The area has a wide selection of state and independent schools including Queen Elizabeth's at Pamphill, Dumpton Preparatory School at Furzehill, and the renowned Canford School at Canford Magna.

An open entrance vestibule with a coat hanging area and a quarry tiled floor leads to a large entrance hall with a door to a cellar.

The superb drawing room has a bay window overlooking the gardens, a tiled open fireplace and single glazed casement doors to outside. The dining room has a marble fireplace (presently sealed), fitted bookshelves and a bay window overlooking the front garden, and there is a breakfast room overlooking the rear garden, with an original (sealed) fireplace.

An inner hallway leads to a wet room and a small kitchen with fitted units. An impressive pine panelled staircase with a mahogany handrail leads to the landing, from which a pair of casement doors lead out onto a leaded roof.

The superb, dual aspect master bedroom has a fireplace and superb views, and there are 2 further bedrooms with (sealed) fireplaces. From the half landing a door leads to a bathroom and WC.

A 5-bar gate on brick piers leads into a large circular driveway with a central roundabout planted with birch trees and evergreens. The driveway continues to the side of the house where there is a detached triple garage block (with corrugated tin roof).

The main garden lies to the south side of the house and is partly walled with laurel hedges and a large lawn. There are established trees including chestnut, laurel, and there are rhododendrons. A grass bank is screened from the side garden by a belt of evergreens. Steps lead to a higher lawn with former rose garden and a magnolia. The gardens would benefit from landscaping.

DIRECTIONS: From Wimborne, proceed up Rowlands Hill, and Langley is the first Victorian house on the left hand side.
