West Street - Wimborne Town Centre - A charming, Grade II Listed, double-fronted, detached town house in the centre of the historic market town of Wimborne Minster. Trumpeters is situated in a prominent position within a short walk of The Square.

Believed to date back to the 18th century, the property retains a number of original features with exposed beams and timbers throughout, period fireplaces, sash windows and some timber panelled walls.

Trumpeters stands within a conservation area and has immediate access to an excellent range of amenities including Waitrose and Co-op supermarkets, many independent shops, numerous cafes, bars and restaurants, the Tivoli Theatre and the Allendale community centre. The coastal resorts of Bournemouth and Poole are approximately 10 and 7 miles away, and both have mainline railway links to London Waterloo. Among the well regarded state and public schools in the wider area are Canford, Dumpton, Castle Court, Clayesmore, Bryanston, Queen Elizabeth’s and Allenbourn.

The panelled front door has a covered porch and opens into the spacious reception hall which has exposed beams and timbers and part panelled walls. Steps lead to a raised hallway with French doors to a walled garden. There is also a cloakroom.

A wide opening from the hall leads to an elegant drawing room with plaster cornice, dado rail, Adam style fireplace, access to a cellar, and double doors to the partly panelled sitting room which has a fire surround, fitted shelving and a window seat.

The dining room has a brick recess with a beam over, and a door to the integral garage. The kitchen has timber-fronted base and wall units, a ceramic electric hob, a cooker hood, an electric oven, a washing machine, a tumble dryer and an upright fridge-freezer.

From the rear hallway, stairs lead to a large first floor landing. The master suite has a large double bedroom with an airing cupboard, a dressing room and a large en suite bathroom. There are 2 further double bedrooms with fitted wardrobes, and a large family bathroom.

A second staircase leads to a large loft room/studio which has a door to an attic storage room (with window.)

Outside, high wrought iron double gates lead to a small, private courtyard where there is vehicular access to an integral garage (with twin timber doors, lighting and power points.) There is an additional parking space to the rear of the property.

A gate gives access to the private, walled rear garden which has a paved terrace, raised beds, various trees and shrubs, and climbing roses trained over an arbour. An exterior cupboard houses the central heating boiler.

Connected to mains gas, electricity, water and drainage, Trumpeters has gas central heating and some secondary double glazing.

DIRECTIONS: Approaching Wimborne from the A31 at Corfe Mullen, proceed along Julians Road to the small roundabout. Take the second exit, into West Street, and Trumpeters can be found after about 100m, on the left hand side. On foot from The Square, West Street is the road to the left of The Kings Head Hotel. Walk along this road for about 250m, and Trumpeters can be found on the right hand side.
