Built in 1983, and occupied by the present owners for over 20 years, the property has been refurbished and modernised to a very high standard. It is connected to all mains services and has gas central heating, hardwood and powder-coated aluminium windows, high quality carpets and wide oak boarded flooring.
Yew Tree Lodge is situated in a small cul-de-sac at the top of Colehill, tucked away from main roads and traffic noise, and yet only a 10-minute drive from Wimborne town centre which offers a comprehensive range of amenities and shops including a Waitrose store. State and independent schools for all ages are close by, and the larger coastal towns of Poole and Bournemouth, both of which have mainline rail links to London Waterloo, are within about 30 minutes’ drive.
A wide covered entrance way and a pair of hardwood doors (with leaded panels) lead into a long, split level reception hall. Glazed double doors and a short flight of steps lead to the impressive living room which has a fireplace (with a marble effect surround and an inset gas fire) and a superb picture window giving an outstanding view over the garden towards Canford Magna and the coast.
An archway leads to a separate dining room with a high ceiling. From the living room, a pair of sliding doors leads to the superb garden room which features full height double glazed windows overlooking the garden and Canford Magna, a high, sloping glass roof, and Travertine flooring.
There is a study/bedroom 5 with a window to the front. From the reception hall, an inner hall has 2 steps down to a superb kitchen/breakfast room which has an excellent range of modern units (with concealed LED lighting) and polished black granite work surfaces. Appliances include a Neff fan oven with grill, a microwave, a De Dietrich 5-burner hob with extractor above, a dishwasher and a larder fridge. There is a stainless steel under-bowl sink, a tiled floor and a curved hardwood breakfast bar for 3-4 people.
The utility room has matching granite surfaces, a sink, cupboards, space for an American style fridge/freezer, and doors to the garage and a cloakroom.
From the inner hall, a staircase leads to a magnificent family/games room which has an outstanding view towards the coast and could be used as a snooker room, office, study or sitting area.
From the reception hall, a step leads down to an inner hall off of which the bedrooms are located.
The master bedroom is a large room with an excellent range of fitted cupboards, and sliding doors to a sun deck surrounded by balustrades. An archway leads to a dressing room with a fitted dressing table and storage, and there is a beautifully appointed, fully tiled en suite bath/shower room with jacuzzi bath, twin basins set in a Corian worktop, walk-in double shower, and WC.
There are 3 further double bedrooms with either fitted or built-in wardrobes, and a family bath/shower room.
Yew Tree Lodge is approached via a wide tarmac driveway with a turning area, providing parking for numerous vehicles and flanked by trees, a large rockery and a wooded area which includes acers and fir trees.
The rear garden offers almost complete privacy, being enclosed by rhododendrons, laurels, bamboo and a fir tree. A wide shingle terrace with stone retaining walls stretches across the rear of the house. There is a wealth of shrubs including acers, climbing roses, fuchsias and hydrangeas, and a gently sloping lawn. Steps lead up to a terrace and a covered entertaining area.
