The property was built in 1998 by Berkeley Homes Ltd, a well known national house building company specialising in luxury homes across the South and South West of England. The current owners have occupied Woodland Rise since new, and it is now being offered for sale for the first time in 21 years.
Woodland Rise is tucked away from main roads and traffic, and lies between Kyrchil Lane and Park Homer Road in an unmade, gravelled lane known as Kyrchil Way.
Local shops and state schools are available in Colehill, and Wimborne town centre is about 1.5 miles away. Mainline railway stations are easily accessible at Poole and Bournemouth. The area is well served by the preparatory schools of Dumpton at Furzehill and Castle Court at Corfe Mullen, and these are complemented by CanfordSchool in Canford Magna, and BryanstonSchool at Blandford.
Woodland Rise is an impressive, traditionally built family home with facing handmade bricks, ornate tile hung first floor bay windows, feature stone mullions and 2 high timber feature gables under a plain tiled roof with 2 brick chimneys. Connected to mains electricity, water and drainage, the property benefits from gas central heating and leaded timber double glazed windows.
A short flight of stone steps with a wrought iron handrail leads to an entrance vestibule with double doors to an impressive reception hall, off which there is a cloakroom. Double doors give access to a triple aspect drawing room with a limestone fireplace and double doors to the garden. There is a dining room overlooking the front courtyard and a study to the rear.
The large kitchen/breakfast room has space for a table and 6 chairs, limed oak units and a range of built-in appliances including double fan oven, gas hob, extractor, integrated dishwasher, fridge and drawer freezer. There is a separate utility room.
From the kitchen/breakfast room, double doors lead to a dual aspect snug with double doors to an entertaining terrace. There is also access to a Van Dukes conservatory built in 1998, with a ceramic tiled floor, under floor heating, a gabled glass roof and UPVC double glazed windows and doors.
The feature semi-galleried first floor landing gives access to 5 double bedrooms and 3 bathrooms (2 of which are en suite.)
Woodland Rise’s impressive entrance features a long, winding tarmac driveway flanked on both sides by rhododendrons, laurels and oaks, leading into an attractive courtyard.
The matching triple garage block has 3 up-and-over doors, excellent storage space and a personal door, and there is ample space to park vehicles/boats/motorhomes.
Flanking the driveway to the front of the house, there is a gently sloping lawn, several mature oak and birch trees, and a wealth of shrubs including camellias, rhododendrons and bamboo. There is an expanse of lawn and a pergola with an established wisteria.
To the rear of the house, the garden features a large, L-shaped lawn, a stone entertaining terrace with rockery and water feature, a gazebo with deck and handrail, a stunning array of established plants, a bog garden, and trees including Japanese acer, beech, oak and ash. There is an area of private woodland at the rear boundary. THE GARDENS OFFER COMPLETE SECLUSION.
