St Marys Close - Winterborne Whitechurch - A substantial, architect-designed 4 double bedroom split level detached family home situated on a superb, elevated site of about a third of an acre with some OUTSTANDING VIEWS OVER THE SURROUNDING COUNTRYSIDE.

Built in the 1980s by a well known local building company, and occupied by our clients since new, the property has been well maintained and is presented in excellent decorative condition.

The accommodation extends to just over 2,400 square feet, primarily on the first floor to maximise the impact of the far reaching views, and the ground floor incorporates a utility/cloakroom, a large double garage and a store room.

Longways benefits from gas central heating and UPVC/aluminium double glazed windows, and is connected to mains gas, electricity and water, with private drainage.

There are beautifully designed gardens which also offer lovely rural views.

A long covered entrance leads into the ground floor, which has a fully fitted utility/cloakroom, and a door to a large double garage and store room. Stairs lead to the first floor landing.

The magnificent, L-shaped, triple aspect living/dining room has full width windows giving a commanding view of the surrounding farmland, and sliding doors to a large balcony (with railing and paved floor,) and sliding door to the rear garden.

The well presented modern kitchen has worktops, base and wall cupboards, built-in appliances and a door to outside.

There are 4 large double bedrooms including a large master bedroom with beautiful views and a spacious, fully tiled en suite shower room. Bedroom 2 has an outstanding view and a fully tiled en suite shower room with WC. Bedroom 3 has double doors to outside and access to the fully tiled family bathroom which has a large spa bath with shower over, a vanity wash basin, fitted cupboards and a WC with concealed cistern.

The fourth bedroom overlooks the rear terrace, and there is a separate study with a comprehensive range of office furniture and door to a balcony.

Longways is approached via a wide shingle driveway and turning area, leading to the integral garaging (which has 2 remote controlled electric up-and-over doors.) The front garden has been landscaped for ease of maintenance, with large conifer and heather beds, brick retaining wall, water feature with timber bridge, sitting area, crazy paved pathways, lawn and grass bank, and an outstanding view of the surrounding countryside.

Stone steps lead up to a central pathway with a blue cedar, fir trees and other shrubs. The rear garden has a large entertaining terrace with a pergola (with wisteria,) palms, bamboo, ferns and other shrubs.
