Full description

Tenure: Freehold

An immaculately presented country house and separate cottage with stunning panoramic views over rolling countryside to the Purbecks, on the outskirts of this historic village.

Wyndthorpe House was designed by a local architect and constructed in 1990 to a high specification. The current owners have since undertaken sympathetic improvements upon those works to an impeccable standard. The house is discreetly situated behind electric gates, well
positioned within its grounds and enjoys stunning views over rolling countryside to the Purbecks, and even boasts glimpses of Poole Harbour to the south-east, and the Hardy’s Monument to the southwest.
Improvements include (but are not limited to) refurbishment and modernisation of rooms throughout, a purpose built Games Room/Gym with cavity wall insulation and double glazing, and a Biomass heating system (currently returning approximately £4,000 per annum) for all the buildings.

The timber floors in the entrance hall run through to the comfortable drawing room, which has a large wood burner, oak flooring and sliding doors to a south-facing part covered raised terrace and thence the garden and panoramic uninterrupted views of spectacular Dorset countryside. Beyond this room is a large oak panelled playroom/
study. The generous kitchen/dining room is truly “the heart of the house” with beautiful limestone tiled flooring and off the dining area bi-fold doors open to a raised terrace area, creating a seamless
indoor/outdoor feel. It includes blue pearl granite worktops, sink, a central island, ample cupboard storage, two dishwashers, integrated fridge, space for additional white goods. The blue pearl granite
continues to the utility room with further sink, storage and space for white goods. The boot room is situated to the rear of the house and has ample hanging space for coats, with additional cupboards and an oak bench. Underfloor heating to the kitchen/dining room, utility and boot rooms.
The basement is truly impressive – two large rooms with a good ceiling height, offering a feeling of space and light; they are currently utilised as a games room and cinema/sitting room. There is also a pantry/wine store beyond.
Off the main landing on the first floor are five double bedrooms, four of which enjoy impressive rural views. The master bedroom has sliding doors opening onto a balcony, a large en-suite bath/shower room and a walk-in dressing lobby. Two bedrooms have end-suite shower rooms and there are two further bedrooms and family bath/shower room. All bath and shower rooms have underfloor heating. There is a hatch on the main landing with sliding ladder to the attic room (28ft x 11ft 3” - 8.53m x 3.43m) with Velux windows.
All principle rooms to the house overlook the south-facing garden, orientated to enjoy this enviable setting.
‘The Cottage’
This provides excellent ancillary accommodation with its own garden. There is an open plan living room incorporating sitting, dining and kitchen areas, two double bedrooms and a shower room. All rooms have underfloor heating.
Outside
There is a large courtyard area with an impressive turning circle and parking for multiple cars, and a modern ‘Coach House’ with large double garage,
light, power, cloakroom with wc and stairs to an ‘office’ on the first floor. There is a recently constructed games room/gym with plumbing for a potential cloakroom. Machinery store. Greenhouse. Treehouse with climbing wall and zip
wire, through to the woodland area of the garden, carpeted with snowdrops and bluebells in the spring. To the far corner of the garden is a delightful secluded area known as ‘Harbour View’, entered via a wrought iron gate and leads to a
private seating area and pond. The magnificent heated SWIMMING POOL is situated to appreciate the glorious outlook. Electric solar slatted safety cover. Pool shed housing filtration unit. The garden has been thoughtfully landscaped and is primarily lawned, interspersed with planted beds and mature trees. There is a small orchard with mature fruit trees and a separate fenced vegetable garden
with raised beds.

Wyndthorpe House is above and on the outskirts of this infamous village, steeped in history, in an area designated of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Milton Abbas has a well-known public house, a post office, Farm Shop, a church as well as a doctor’s surgery and the famous Milton Abbey School with its own golf club and Abbey.
The nearby market town of Blandford Forum is about 7 miles and the County town of Dorchester, with mainline station to London/
Waterloo and Poole/Southampton is about 10 miles; both offer commercial, shopping and sporting facilities. There is excellent
education locally in both the private and state sectors including Milton Abbey, Bryanston, Canford, Clayesmore, Leweston, the Sherborne schools, Port Regis, Hanford, Sandroyd, The Blandford School and Thomas Hardye School in Dorchester, all within a 20 mile radius.
Sporting pursuits in the area include golf at Blandford, Sherborne and Dorchester. National hunt racing at Wincanton and Taunton and
flat racing at Salisbury. Water sports, sailing and sea fishing along the Jurassic coast. There is a good network of footpaths and bridleways
across the surrounding beautiful countryside. The adjacent paddock has direct access to a bridlepath.
