Queen Elizabeth Court was formed when the old Wimborne Grammar School, an iconic Victorian building with distinctive cupolas, decorative brickwork and stone mullions, was converted into 9 individual dwellings, each taking its name from a former headmaster. They stand within landscaped communal grounds adjoining Deans Court, look into a central quadrangle and have views across to the Minster. Wimborne's wide range of town centre amenities are within a few moments' walk, and bus services connect to the coastal towns of Poole and Bournemouth, both of which have mainline rail links to London Waterloo.
Allan offers immense charm and character, and the ground floor comprises reception hall (with under stairs cupboard,) modern fitted kitchen (with integrated Diplomat 4-burner gas hob, cooker hood, electric double oven and further appliance space,) and dining room (with serving hatch to kitchen, cupboard housing the gas boiler and French doors to the communal garden.) A turned staircase leads to the first floor landing, which has an airing cupboard, and the sitting room, which enjoys a delightful aspect onto the walled garden. There is a modern fitted bathroom, and a further staircase leading to the second floor, where there are 2 bedrooms, both with built-in wardrobes.
The property benefits from gas fired central heating.
Queen Elizabeth Court has a centre, covered, arched walkway leading to an attractively laid out communal garden with gravel footpaths, lawn, and flower and shrub borders. There is a garage in a nearby complex.
LEASE: 999 YEARS FROM 1982. RESIDENTS' ASSOCIATION: £588 per annum including buildings insurance, and maintenance of the lighting, communal garden and footpaths.
