Julians Road - Wimborne Town Centre - Stour Lodge is an outstanding 7 double bedroom Victorian home situated in a prominent town centre position within a few hundred yards’ walk of The Square. Originally built around 1850, this elegant residence has been completely restored and updated in recent years and is offered for sale in truly excellent condition throughout.

Traditionally built, Stour Lodge has facing brick elevations under a hipped slate roof which was replaced around 2003, with 3 tall chimneys.

This fine family home has accommodation extending to over 4500 square feet arranged over 3 floors, and has great potential for use as a guest house, having previously had the benefit of a licence in the 1990s. Outside there is a detached coach house/garage which also has potential for use as a holiday let, subject to the necessary planning permission.

No expense has been spared in refurbishing this superb house whilst retaining many original features. The impressive entrance hall has a superb quarry tiled floor, typical of the period, a dado band, and plaster features including cornicing and a ceiling rose. The original sash windows have been refurbished, the kitchen window retains the original shutters, and there are 3 feature fireplaces. The two principal reception rooms have an outstanding view over the garden and swimming pool terrace. 2 separate staircases lead to the first floor accommodation, and a further staircase leads to the second floor.

There are 3 well proportioned reception rooms, and an inner hallway leads to a utility room and a spacious cloakroom. There is also a feature cellar with full ceiling height, domed brick ceiling and brick floor.

The impressive kitchen/breakfast room has an excellent range of bespoke, hand-painted, framed units, glass cabinets, butler’s sink, beech work surfaces, Britannia range cooker, integrated dishwasher, fridge and freezer, oak strip flooring and a recess housing a wall mounted gas boiler. There is an inner passageway to the rear garden.

An attractive staircase with turned mahogany handrail leads to a superb split level landing. The upper landing gives access to 3 large double bedrooms, 2 of which have a superb view over the garden, The Leaze and farmland beyond.

One of the bedrooms to the front boasts a large en suite bathroom with modern rolltop bath (with ball and claw feet,) vanity wash basin, WC and Victorian fireplace. The family bathroom also has a rolltop bath, and there is a separate first floor cloakroom. All 3 of these bedrooms have fireplaces.

The lower landing gives access to bedrooms 4 and 5, which are serviced by a separate shower room with a high level Victorian suite. A second staircase leads to the second floor, where there is a balustrade overlooking the landing, and access to 2 large double bedrooms.

To the front, a shingle driveway provides parking for at least 4 vehicles and leads to a detached coach house which offers potential for holiday letting or airbnb. There is a detached single garage/workshop with shower room and boiler/pool room.

The outstanding, southerly facing, rectangular rear garden is mainly walled, with some fencing and hedges. There is a large, flat lawn interspersed with copper beech, oak and chestnut trees.

A particular feature is a 12m (approx) swimming pool set in large paved entertaining terrace, surrounded by box hedges and a pergola (with climber.)
