The picturesque market town of Wimborne Minster is about 1.5 miles away.

Originally built in 1976, Danescourt has been occupied by the present owners since 1996 and has well maintained throughout. It is of traditional construction, with facing brick, tile hung and stone elevations under a concrete tiled roof, and the spacious accommodation is arranged over 4 different levels.

There is a paddock, ample off road parking, and a triple garage block.

A split level reception hall leads to the living room, which has a stone fireplace and doors opening onto an entertaining terrace. The impressive kitchen/family/breakfast area has oak flooring and sliding doors to the front garden and also opens up into a large conservatory, which has 2 pairs of doors to the swimming pool terrace.

From the reception hall, 2 steps lead down to a lower hall which gives access to a dining room and a study. There is an additional living room with an oak boarded ceiling, a stone open fireplace (with wood burner) and 2 bay windows. Double doors lead to a games room with oak flooring, a vaulted ceiling and double doors to the garden terrace. There is also a gymnasium with a pine clad ceiling and double doors to the garden.

The large laundry/boot room has a butler's sink, granite worktops and space for a fridge and freezer, and there is a useful gardener's WC.

From the hall, steps lead to an upper landing off of which there are four spacious double bedrooms, ALL OF WHICH HAVE VIEWS OVER THE GARDEN, and a family bathroom. Bedroom 2 has a large en suite shower room.

From the upper landing, a short flight of stairs leads to the superb master bedroom suite. The impressive bedroom has sliding doors to the terrace and balcony, and an outstanding outlook. There is a dressing room and an en suite bath/shower room.

Danescourt is approached from Queen Anne Drive via a private driveway, which is enclosed by a wealth of rhododendrons, mature trees and established heathers. A cattle grid leads to a large tarmac courtyard and turning area providing space for a number of vehicles. There is an attached triple garage with 2 up-and-over doors, and one of the garages has been converted into an office.

The front garden area is totally secluded and has 2 separate lawns, well planted, raised stone borders and trees including palm, fir and silver birch.

The gardens, to the south and east, are mainly arranged as lawn, interspersed with high conifers screening the main paddock. There are several entertaining terraces with raised stone planters. To the rear of the house, there is a lovely lawn area that leads to a raised deck.

To the west side of the house, there is a circular heated swimming pool inset in a stone surround. The pool has a sand filter and a separate gas boiler.

A pathway leads to a purpose-built pool house with a bar, sauna area with changing rooms and a fully tiled shower/cloakroom. The bar area has a tiled worktop with an inset ceramic sink.

The main paddock, which is almost triangular in shape, is laid to grass and enclosed by an established treeline.
