Originally built in the early 1970s, High Mead has been substantially extended and updated in recent years, and now offers excellent living accommodation extending to almost 2700 square feet over 2 floors.
The house has many interesting features and benefits from gas central heating and mostly UPVC double glazing. It is connected to all mains services and decorated to a high standard throughout, and there is a large, highly insulated loft area.
The spacious ground floor has a large living room with a brick open fireplace and an attractive bay window overlooking the front courtyard. A separate dining room also has a bay to the front, and leads to a comprehensively fitted study.
The kitchen has granite and oak work surfaces, framed, hand-painted cupboards and drawers, a butler’s sink, downlighters, a ceramic tiled floor and appliances including a Gaggenau double fan oven, a matching 5-burner hob (with glass splashback and extractor,) and an integrated dishwasher. A wide archway and step lead down to a superb garden room which has a wide oak boarded floor, quality timber double glazed window units, and double doors to the terrace and garden. There is a ground floor cloakroom.
From the kitchen there is access to the double garage, off of which there is a spacious utility/boot room.
On the first floor, the impressive master bedroom has 2 separate dressing rooms (with automatic lighting) and a magnificent en suite bathroom (with double-ended bath, twin basins, WC and walk-in shower.)
Bedroom 2 has a large en suite shower room, and there are 2 further double bedrooms and a family bathroom. All of the bathrooms were fitted by Bathroom Elegance of Poole.
Outside, a tarmac slipway and 5-bar gate lead to a large courtyard, enclosed by natural hedges and close boarded fencing.
The rear garden is enclosed by established (largely laurel) hedges and close boarded fencing, offering almost complete privacy. There are large, well maintained, gently sloping lawns, trellising (with climbing roses,) a timber log store, mature beech and conifer trees, pathways and a full width slate entertaining terrace.
DIRECTIONS: From Wimborne, proceed up Rowlands Hill, bearing left at the small roundabout. Pass Colehill Cricket Ground on the left, and continue for about a quarter a mile. Just before the junction with Northleigh Lane, High Mead can be found on the right hand side.
