Approached off a private, unmade road on the southern side of Colehill, in one of Wimborne’s premiere residential neighbourhoods, the property enjoys easy access to the town centre’s lively shopping area and a wide range of amenities. Excellent state schools for all ages are readily available, as are independent schools including Dumpton, Castle Court and Canford. The nearby coastal town of Poole provides a mainline rail link to London Waterloo, and the A31, a short drive away at Canford Bottom, connects with the M27 and M3 motorways to Southampton and London.
Jessamy has been designed to minimise its impact on the environment, reduce its carbon footprint and lower its energy needs, and is of timber and brick construction with steel cladding and a high level of insulation under a steel roof.
