Ashington Lane is a quiet, rural backwater of Wimborne, and number 90 sits on high ground with some lovely views over farmland to the rear.
This charming character cottage offers enormous potential for extension to create a garage and third bedroom, subject to the necessary planning consents. It is connected to mains electricity and water, and there is an oil fired heating system.
Traditionally built, the cottage has mellow brick elevations with brick mullions and architraves and a portico entrance under a concrete tiled roof (with a high brick chimney.)
Interesting features include wrought iron raised fireplaces, brick and tiled floors, a wood burning stove, stripped pine ledged-and-braced doors and a Victorian style bathroom.
There is an attractive sitting room and, from the kitchen/dining room, an arched door leads to a conservatory with double doors affording an outstanding view over the garden. The two spacious bedrooms both have wrought iron corner fireplaces, and there is a large first floor bathroom.
To the front, wrought iron double gates lead to a gravelled driveway providing off road parking space. The front garden is enclosed by wrought iron railings and box hedgerows.
The cottage’s garden is presented in truly excellent condition, and is enclosed by hedgerows and wrought iron railings, with a gently sloping lawn. There are 2 semi-detached brick outbuildings with clay tiled roofs. One is currently used as an office and has CAT 5 cabling and a separate cloakroom, and the other is a useful workshop/garden store.
Wrought iron gates and an arbour lead to a lower garden area planted with fruit trees and flowers, and, from here, a further wrought iron gate gives access to a large kitchen garden with a greenhouse. There is a gated entrance to the paddocks which are enclosed by post-and-wire fencing and an established tree line.
