Tenure: Freehold

A beautifully presented 6 double bedroom Victorian country home set in superb gardens, grounds and paddocks of over 3.75 acres including a superb indoor swimming pool complex and a detached coach house incorporating a garage, a workshop and first floor offices.

Court Manor is an impressive, 3-storey detached property set back from the A31, close to local shopping facilities in Sturminster Marshall village and Corfe Mullen, and about 3.5 miles west of the market town of Wimborne Minster. There is good access by road to Poole, Bournemouth and Dorchester, all of which have mainline railway stations.

The original house, which was built in 1880, is of brick construction with colour-washed rendered solid walls under a clay tiled roof (with 2 large brick chimneys) and later extensions have matching rendered elevations. There is mains electricity and water, private drainage, LPG heating, UPVC double glazed windows and quality flooring.

The property has many outstanding features, some of which are original, including an ornate quarry tiled floor in the entrance hall, dado rails, picture rails, cornicing, ceiling roses, and an impressive wrought iron Victorian fireplace. There is a large conservatory with a high gabled polycarbonate roof, and full height windows overlooking the gardens, and the living room and library have window shutters.

An entrance vestibule leads to a long hallway with an under stairs cupboard and a cloakroom. There is a library with a Victorian fireplace and an excellent range of fitted bookshelves. An inner hallway leads to a laundry room and a pantry.

The dual aspect living room has views onto the gardens, and 2 walkways lead to a dining room with a hatch to the kitchen. Wide casement doors lead to the impressive conservatory (which has a tiled floor, full height windows, and casement doors to the entertaining terrace and garden).

The spacious kitchen/breakfast room has Wilkinson style units including curved wall cabinets, polished granite work surfaces, a butlers' sink, a Rangemaster range cooker with a mantel above, an integrated dishwasher and exposed ceiling timbers.

The adjacent breakfast room overlooks the swimming pool and has a wood burning stove on a granite plinth, a recessed American style fridge-freezer and a door to outside. A covered sitting area leads to a large boot room with a butler's sink, worktops, cupboards and space for a fridge-freezer.

A wide first floor landing leads to the dual aspect master bedroom which has a superb open view, a walk-in dressing room and an archway to an en suite shower room. Bedroom 2 has a step down to an en suite shower room, and there are 2 further double bedrooms and a step down to a fully tiled family bathroom with a free standing bathtub (with ball-and-claw feet), a wash basin and a WC. There is also a separate cloakroom with a WC and a wash basin.

A staircase leads to 2 further double bedrooms on the second floor.

The gardens are an outstanding feature, and are screened from the road by high conifer and laurel hedges. Timber electric gates give access to a long tarmac driveway leading to a courtyard with a grass roundabout and space for numerous vehicles, boats, trailers, along with garaging and outbuildings.

There is a detached coach house incorporating a large single garage, a workshop and first floor offices, offering 'home and income' potential for eg home offices or Airbnb rental. There is also a further single garage.

The gardens have large lawns, a mature horse chestnut tree, a bench seat, a wendy house, and a concealed vegetable garden with raised beds and a greenhouse. There is a spacious entertaining terrace with a stone balustrade, which leads to a stunning indoor swimming pool complex (with matching rendered walls, full height bifold doors, glass screens, a glazed roof, a tiled surround with under floor heating, a boiler/plant room with an airsource heat pump, a changing room and shower facilities. The pool itself measures approximately 30' x 10'.

Both Court Manor and the coach house are alarmed.

A footpath leads to 3 paddocks which are enclosed by post-and-rail fencing, and an orchard. Trees include fir, chestnut, silver birch and lime.

DIRECTIONS: From Wimborne, proceed west along the A31 towards Dorchester. Just past the left hand turning to Corfe Mullen (near St Hubert's church), the entrance to Court Manor can be found on the right hand side.
