Firview has recently been subject to a programme of refurbishment and roof extension, and now provides spacious, flexible living accommodation with scope to create a ‘granny suite’ on the ground floor. It benefits from an LPG heating system, replacement UPVC double glazed windows, mains electricity and water, private drainage, ample off road parking, a large double garage/workshop and a 5-box stable block (now in need of renovation).
THE LANES AROUND FIRVIEW GIVE EASY ACCESS TO A MULTITUDE OF SCENIC WALKS INCLUDING BRIDLEWAYS ACROSS BOTH CRANE VALLEY AND REMEDY OAK GOLF COURSES.
The plot extends in total to about 0.74 of an acre.
An enclosed entrance porch leads to a spacious reception hall with laminate flooring and a cupboard containing a Worcester gas central heating boiler. The living room features a corner wood burning stove and double glazed French doors to a conservatory which has sliding doors to a timber sun deck.
A pair of glazed doors lead to a superb kitchen/dining room with double doors to the garden, an excellent range of units, ample worktops, a retractable larder, a peninsular unit and appliances including full height fridge and freezer, Rangemaster cooker range with extractor above, and dishwasher. A door leads to a rear porch/utility room with space and plumbing for washing machine.
Bedroom 3 has a range of fitted wardrobes and a fully tiled en suite shower room (with wall mounted Mira shower, concealed cistern WC and wash basin).
Bedroom 4 has an archway leading to a dressing room. Agents’ Note: This area could form a bedroom and separate sitting room. The fully tiled family bathroom has fully tiled walls, a panelled bath (with wall mounted shower and screen), a concealed cistern WC and a wash basin.
From the reception hall an oak staircase leads to the first floor where there is galleried landing with a vaulted ceiling. Bedroom 1 has skylights and a fully tiled en suite shower room with walk-in shower, WC and wash basin.
Bedroom 2 has skylights and access to eaves storage space, and a fully tiled en suite bathroom with panelled bath, WC and wash basin.
Firview is approached off a long, unadopted private lane from Verwood Road. A pair of 5-bar gates opens onto a large gravelled driveway providing ample off road parking, and there is a detached double garage with electric up-and-over doors, lighting and power points, and double doors to the rear garden.
The front garden is predominantly lawned with a hedge to the front boundary. There is a raised timber deck to the side providing an outdoor seating area. The large, enclosed rear garden offers a good degree of privacy and is predominantly lawned, with a kitchen garden area (with raised beds, a timber shed and 2 greenhouses). The stable block, which requires renovation, comprises 5 loose boxes.
DIRECTIONS: From Wimborne, proceed north on the B3078 towards Cranborne. At the Horton Inn, turn right and proceed through Horton village. Before reaching Drusilla’s Inn, turn left, signposted to Woodlands and Remedy Oak Golf Club. Continue to the crossroads (with the nursery and Cinnamon Lounge restaurant on the right) and turn right into Verwood Road. After about a mile, just past the turning to New Road, turn right into an unmade lane. As you proceed down the lane, bear left at the fork, and Firview is the first property on the left.
