Wimborne Minster provides an extensive range of shops, pubs, cafes and restaurants. There are excellent schools for all age groups, and local bus services connect to the coastal towns of Bournemouth and Poole, both of which have mainline rail links to London Waterloo. The property is tastefully presented throughout and benefits from gas fired central heating system and replacement UPVC triple glazed windows, a number of which have fitted colonial style blinds. The reception hall features half panelled walls and Amtico flooring. The charming sitting room has display shelving fitted to the alcoves, and a bay window to the front.
There is a superb, open plan kitchen/dining room with Amtico flooring and an excellent range of fitted units and granite worktops. There are integrated appliances (still under extended warranty) which include a Neff induction hob with cooker hood above, electric oven (with combi oven and warming drawer), integrated dishwasher and washing machine. There is a recess for a fridge/freezer, which is available by separate negotiation. From the dining area, a door leads to a rear porch which has a door to the walled garden.
A staircase (with turned spindles) leads from the reception hall to a semi-galleried landing which has loft access. Bedroom 1 has an excellent range of fitted furniture comprising wardrobes, built-in dressing table and bedside cabinets. Bedroom 2 has mirror-fronted wardrobes. The luxury family bath/shower room has an airing cupboard (housing a Worchester gas central heating boiler, a tumble dryer and a water softener) and comprises corner bath, shower cubicle, concealed cistern WC and wash basin.
The property stands in a prime corner position and has a small front garden enclosed by a low brick garden wall (with wrought ironwork and a pedestrian gate to the front door). A side gate leads to the enclosed, walled rear garden which is arranged for ease of maintenance and has artificial grass, a pizza oven, a timber shed, and 2 high ledged-and-braced gates providing rear access to Old Road. This could provide off road parking.
Agents Note: there is a public car park very nearby in Old Road, for which local residents can obtain a discount parking permit from Dorset Council.
Directions: Proceed through the town on the one-way system, going past The Minster church on the right hand side and the Model Town on the left. At the roundabout, take the first exit into Julians Road, and Number 2 can be found immediately on the right.
