Sandy Lane - Lytchett Matravers - A simply stunning 5 bedroom detached house with MAGNIFICENT VIEWS OVER THE SURROUNDING COUNTRYSIDE, in a quiet, rural lane tucked away from main roads, on the fringe of Lytchett Matravers village.

This impressive home was originally built in the 1930s but was virtually rebuilt by the present owners in 2012. It now offers superb, traditional accommodation arranged over 3 floors, with a west facing rear aspect and ample off road parking. THERE IS PLANNING PERMISSION FROM PURBECK DISTRICT COUNCIL TO CONVERT THE DOUBLE GARAGE INTO A 1 BEDROOM ANNEXE.

Lytchett Matravers is ideally situated for access to the major coastal resorts of Poole and Bournemouth, both of which have mainline rail links to London Waterloo. The village offers a range of local amenities including a primary school and 2 pubs.

Woodlands is connected to mains electricity and water and has private drainage, oil fired central heating and UPVC double glazed windows throughout.

An impressive, wide portico entrance with stone pillars leads to a spacious reception hall with an oak boarded floor. Double doors give access to a magnificent kitchen/family/dining area with 2 pairs of double doors to a balcony, giving OUTSTANDING WESTERLY VIEWS over the surrounding farmland.

The superb kitchen by Kitchen Elegance of Poole includes a comprehensive range of hand-painted units, granite work surfaces, concealed worktop lighting, large island/breakfast table, electric Aga set in a tiled recess with feature mantel over, 2 full height integrated larder fridges, integrated dishwasher, built-in microwave unit, under floor heating and fine views over farmland. A stable door leads to a utility room with ceramic sink, matching cupboards, floor standing oil fired boiler and hot water vessel. A walkway leads to a large boot room with 2 doors to outside, and a shower room.

An inner hallway with a cloakroom leads to a dual aspect study, and the large, L-shaped, dual aspect living room overlooks the front courtyard.

There is a long first floor landing leading to a superb master bedroom with far reaching views, double doors to a fully equipped dressing room and a luxury, fully tiled en suite shower room. There are 3 further double bedrooms and a luxury family bath/shower room.

On the second floor there is an impressive fifth room with stunning views to the east and west, a walk-in wardrobe and an outstanding en suite shower room featuring a fully tiled, circular shower cubicle.

Outside, electric double gates on brick piers lead to a large gravelled courtyard with space for several vehicles, leading to a large detached double garage and adjacent carport. THERE IS PLANNING PERMISSION FROM PURBECK DISTRICT COUNCIL TO CONVERT THE GARAGE INTO A 1 BEDROOM ANNEXE.

To the rear, there is a large entertaining balcony with artificial grass, with steps down to a large, floodlit artificial grass area enclosed by wrought iron railings, ideal for entertaining or soccer training. Below this there is a small paddock adjoining open farmland.

DIRECTIONS: From Wimborne, proceed along the A31 to the Roundhouse roundabout at Sturminster Marshall. Take the first exit, towards Poole. Before reaching the Woodlands Nursery on the left, turn right at Coombe into a small, unmade lane. After half a mile, turn right at the crossroads, into Sandy Lane, and Woodlands can be found on the left hand side, just before a sharp left hand bend.
