The Stables was built to a high standard of specification and design by a well known local builder in 2005. The spacious, light, well proportioned rooms take advantage of the site and location, and no expense has been spared in creating a stunning family home.
Holt has a popular pub/restaurant, and there is a post office/shop in the neighbouring village of Furzehill. Gaunts Common, about 2 miles away, has a First School, and the wider area is well served by both state and independent schools. The popular market town of Wimborne Minster, about 4 miles away, offers an excellent range of amenities, and there is easy access by road to the larger coastal towns of Poole and Bournemouth, both of which have mainline rail links to London Waterloo.
Traditionally constructed of quality handmade brick, with a feature clad gable to the rear, and a clay tiled roof, The Stables is connected to mains electricity and water, and has private drainage with a Klargester biotank sewerage system. There is a high level of insulation throughout, giving good heat retention and economical heating costs.
The property benefits from fully computerised LPG heating (with under floor heating to the ground floor and radiators to the first floor), quality hardwood double glazed windows and oak internal doors, a pressurised hot water system, a water softener, a professional alarm system and security lighting. The house is wired for a sound system, with speaker points in principal rooms
A covered entrance way and a feature oak front door (with side screens) leads to a large, L-shaped hall with a coat cupboard and a superb, full height arched window overlooking the front courtyard. The attractive, dual aspect drawing room has a pair of casement doors to outside, and an inglenook style brick fireplace (with an oak beam over and a wood burning stove set on a tiled hearth).
From the hall, double doors lead to the dining room which has casement doors to the garden, and there is a separate, dual aspect study.
The superb kitchen/family room is a particular feature of the ground floor, having double doors which give a delightful outlook over the garden. The kitchen was supplied and fitted by Kitchen Elegance of Poole with curved profile polished granite work surfaces and a comprehensive range of oak units (with concealed worktop lighting). There is an oval island with inset ceramic sink and integrated dishwasher, a full height retractable larder, LED ceiling lighting and space for a table and chairs. Appliances include a double fan oven, matching microwave unit, 5-burner gas hob, extractor, integrated larder fridge/freezer and dishwasher.
The spacious utility room has work surfaces, cupboards, a wall mounted gas boiler, space for washing machine and dryer, and a door to outside.
From the hall, an impressive ash staircase leads to the semi-galleried first floor landing.
The impressive master bedroom has a dressing room, built-in wardrobes and a superb view over the garden and Holt Green. Its luxury en suite shower room features a double shower cubicle (with pre-heat digital shower), a ceramic sink on a granite plinth, and a WC.
Bedroom 2 is a large, dual aspect bedroom with a double cupboard and an en suite shower room. Bedroom 3 has a dual aspect over the front courtyard. Bedroom 4 is a good sized double with built-in cupboards, and there is a family bathroom.
The Stables has a double garage with electric door and personal door, and a spacious gravelled driveway enclosed by beech hedges and mature shrubs. To the side of the house there is a log store and a large tumbled Indian slate terrace which extends to the rear of the house.
The south facing, partly walled rear garden offers superb views over Holt village, and includes beautifully stocked flower and shrub beds, trees including oak and plane, an orchard, a vegetable garden, a sheltered, Mediterranean style courtyard, and a large, particularly well maintained, flat lawn.
