The Olde House, which fronts directly onto West Borough, and has pedestrian access from Blind Lane, is believed to have been built in the 1600s and used as a toll house on the northern approach to Wimborne, and later as a doctors house. It was sub-divided into 3 individual properties. Number 46 has been well maintained and tastefully decorated throughout, and offers immense charm and character.
The reception hall has an under stairs storage cupboard. There is a charming, dual aspect living room with a brick open fireplace and a beamed ceiling. The kitchen/dining room has a range of limed oak units, glazed china cabinets, plate racks, rolltop work surfaces, gas hob, cooker hood, electric oven and larder fridge.
The semi-galleried first floor landing has an airing cupboard and loft access, and leads to 2 light and airy double bedrooms with full height windows. The shower room has recently been refitted.
Outside, there is a delightful walled cottage garden with lawn, well stocked flower and shrub borders, paved footpaths, seating area and barbecue. A footpath provides access to the single garage (in a nearby block) with up-and-over door and pitched roof providing ample eaves storage. Adjacent parking bays (not allocated) are available.
Directions: From The Square, proceed along West Borough, staying in the left hand lane as you approach the traffic lights near the Tivoli Theatre. Proceed ahead and take the second turning on the left into Blind Lane. The Olde House is immediately on the right hand side.
