Full description

Tenure: Freehold

An exceptional and versatile house with superb accommodation, separate annexe and pool complex.


Brooklands is a fine property set well back off Arrowsmith Road, approached by a long drive through pillared electric gates.

Situated in a very sought after area between Wimborne and Poole where planning has traditionally been strictly controlled to preclude over-development.

Set in about 6 acres of grounds, the property is approximately 3 miles south of Wimborne Minster which offers good local shopping facilities (including Waitrose) with Poole about 4 miles and Bournemouth 7 miles. London (Waterloo) is about 1 hour 45 minutes from Bournemouth.

The area is well known for its excellent sporting and recreational facilities including a championship golf course at Ferndown, Broadstone and Parkstone, a variety of water-sports in Poole Harbour and good riding and walking country on the adjacent Canford Heath.

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.


Brooklands is a magnificent house offering superb open plan living areas ideal for entertaining with the main reception rooms and hall some 70' in length plus an adjoining sitting room. The large well fitted kitchen/breakfast room and the recently built garden/sun room complement the ground floor accommodation well. Below are the excellent cellars comprising large snooker room (2 full size tables), wine store and 2 further useful store rooms. There are 5 bedrooms all with en suite facilities with the 5th bedroom on the ground floor ideal for staff or elderly relative.

A recent addition is the self-contained 2 bedroom annexe with large conference/games room some 28' in length. There is a well fitted kitchen and bathroom. The accommodation is light, well designed and exceptionally spacious offering adaptable rooms on 2 floors with large cellar below. At the rear of the house is the heated swimming pool with cloakroom and changing room.

The grounds are an attractive feature of the property laid out with wide lawns interspersed by woodland and a local stream running through the gardens. There are stands of mature trees and wide terraces adjoining the house.
