Highland Road is a prestigious, unmade private road, within walking distance of Wimborne town centre, and is considered to be one of the premier residential areas. Wimborne Minster provides a busy and lively shopping centre including a Waitrose store, and an excellent range of amenities including restaurants, bars and a theatre. The coastal towns of Poole and Bournemouth, both of which have mainline railway stations to London Waterloo, are within motoring distance.
This charming property is double-fronted, and has an enclosed entrance lobby (with cloaks cupboard), interior door to the main reception hall (with understairs storage cupboard), and a downstairs cloakroom.
There is an attractive sitting room (with brick open fireplace and wood block flooring), a separate lounge with Minster stone fireplace, wood block flooring and an open archway leading through to the dining room (which has a casement door to the garden).
The kitchen has a range of storage cupboards, a cooker recess, a walk-in pantry and a side door.
Stairs lead from the reception hall to the first floor galleried landing (with access to loft space and airing cupboard).
The master bedroom enjoys a dual aspect and has a fitted sink, and bedroom 2 has a fitted sink and a range of fitted wardrobes. The third bedroom has a range of fitted wardrobes.
There is a modern bathroom which has been more recently refurbished, comprising a panelled bath (with shower fitment above and glazed screen), low level WC, wash basin, electric shaver point, ladder style radiator, and fully tiled walls.
Outside, the house is set well back from the road, and has a mixed hedgerow with a metal 5-bar gate leading onto a long, gravelled driveway providing ample off road parking. There is an attached garage (with up-and-over door, lighting, power points, and a gas fired central heating boiler which has been replaced in recent years).
The majority of the garden lies to the front of the property, having a large, expansive lawn with well stocked flower and shrub borders. There are mixed hedgerow boundaries, and there is access to either side of the property leading to a private, enclosed rear garden.
