Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 5
A beautifully presented and deceptively spacious 5 bedroom detached chalet style home set at the head of a long driveway, with well planned, light principal rooms overlooking a lovely south facing rear garden which backs on to farmland.

Traditionally constructed as a much smaller 2 bedroom bungalow in 1978, and extended in both 1982 and 1992, the property has mainly rendered elevations over a tiled plinth, and a concrete tiled roof (with 2 hipped dormers and a tall chimney.) The house is connected to all mains services, and has gas central heating, UPVC double glazed windows, cavity wall insulation and solar panels (earning approximately £2,000 per annum.) Our clients' current annual energy bill(for gas, electricity and logs) is less than £1300.

The property is situated close to local shopping facilities and just over a mile to the east of Wimborne town centre, which offers a wide range of amenities including schools for all ages, a Waitrose store and a theatre/cinema. There is easy access to the coastal towns of Poole and Bournemouth, both of which have mainline rail links to London Waterloo.

Particular features include a superb living room overlooking the rear garden, a spacious dining room with twin brick features leading to the kitchen/breakfast room, 3 ground floor bedrooms, 2 first floor bedrooms and a landing/study area.

The property is wired for an integral Bose music system, which is available subject to separate negotiation.

A small entrance hall leads to a utility room with modern work surfaces, stainless steel sink, base and wall units, space for washing machine and fridge-freezer, and door to rear garden. From the hall, a half glazed door leads to a large inner reception hall with exposed ceiling timber, double storage cupboard, cupboard with water softener, and high level Velux style window.

There is a superb living room with full height windows overlooking the rear garden and an open fireplace (with inset wood burning stove on a slate hearth.) Glazed sliding doors lead to a dining room with double doors to the garden, and twin archways giving access to the very well presented kitchen/breakfast room.

The kitchen features a large Corian style work surface, contrasting work surfaces, a good range of units, a breakfast bar to seat 5, a Franke ceramic sink, quality flooring and feature lights. Appliances include 2 Neff ovens (with slide & hide' doors), Neff combi oven, full height larder fridge, integrated dishwasher, Neff glass 5-burner hob, and Neff extractor. There is a door to a rear porch (with a double glazed door to outside.)

Bedroom 1 is an impressive double room with a comprehensive range of wardrobes, bedside cabinets and drawers, a fitted bench seat, and a fully tiled luxury en suite shower room with large walk-in shower (with massaging jets), twin ceramic basins, concealed cistern WC, and fitted mirrored cupboards.

Bedroom 2 has an excellent range of fitted wardrobes, bedside cabinets and drawers, and bedroom 3 is a large double room overlooking the front courtyard and driveway.

The beautifully presented family bathroom has a twin-ended bath tub on a raised timber plinth, ceramic basin on a granite pedestal with curved cupboard, concealed cistern WC, bidet, and fitted worktop.

From the reception hall, a straight staircase leads to a large first floor landing with 2 Velux style rooflights and a built-in storage cupboard. Bedroom 4 has eaves access and a built-in wardrobe. There is a spacious shower room/sauna with shower cubicle, wash basin, WC, part pine clad walls, and 2-person sauna.

There is a study/inner landing with 2 windows overlooking the rear garden and farmland beyond, and bedroom 5 is a spacious double room with a Velux style rooflight.

The property is set back from Wimborne Road West and approached via a long shingle driveway leading into a pavioured courtyard with excellent parking and boat/caravan space. There are 2 separate garages with up-and-over doors, personal doors, lighting and power. Beyond a pavioured terrace, there is a further gravelled parking area for at least 3 vehicles.

There are conifer hedges with climbers, and an arched wrought iron gate leads through to the rear garden which is an outstanding feature, being enclosed by close boarded fencing and trellising and offering almost complete privacy. There is a large, L-shaped, flat lawn, a raised stone planter, a timber wendy house, pavioured pathways, a large entertaining/barbecue terrace with raised stone planters, a large pergola with a shingle floor, a large pond surrounded by crazy paving, a timber deck and a large studio/cabin (which is fully lined and has power, lighting and double doors.)

A paved pathway leads through a pergola (with climbing roses) to a further garden area with 5 palm trees on raised shingle beds with brick retaining walls, and a further pergola with honeysuckle.

This very well kept, attractive garden features a wide range of shrubs and trees including azaleas, acers, magnolia and blue cedar.


From Wimborne, proceed east along Leigh Road, which becomes Wimborne Road West. The driveway to the property can be found on the right hand side, opposite the left hand turning to Hayes Lane.
