Uppington - Hinton Martell - A substantial, 3 bedroom detached modern country house with an open outlook to the rear, situated in the hamlet of Uppington between the villages of Hinton Martell and Gaunts Common, about 5 miles to the north of Wimborne Minster.

Built in 1974 and occupied by the present owners for over 18 years, Blue Hills would benefit from a programme of modernisation. It offers enormous potential for extension, subject to planning permission, and stands in a delightful garden of about a quarter of an acre.

Blue Hills has a rectangular entrance hall, off of which there is a shower room. The large sitting room has a stone open fireplace (with wood burning stove) and doors to a large conservatory (constructed in 2001.) There is a separate dining room to the front. The modern fitted kitchen has a range of built-in appliances, and leads to a spacious utility room with a door to the rear garden and a sliding door to the garage. On the first floor, the house has a particularly large master bedroom, 2 further double bedrooms and a family bathroom.It benefits from oil central heating (for which a new Worcester boiler was fitted in 2018) and UPVC double glazing.

Blue Hills is approached via a tarmac slipway which leads into a gravelled courtyard providing space to park several vehicles. There is also an attached garage (with access to the house.) The front garden is enclosed by a conifer hedge and has a small lawn and established shrubs. The rear garden is enclosed by close boarded fencing, offering a high degree of privacy, and has a lawn, established trees and shrubs and a fishpond.

Directions: From Wimborne, proceed north on the B3078 Cranborne Road. Turn right after about 1 mile, into Furzehill. Continue through the village, passing The Stocks Inn.
