Westfield is a well known Victorian residence which was converted in the 1980s into 21 apartments with a modern, purpose-built wing to one side standing in communal gardens and grounds of about half an acre. Architecturally, Westfield is an attractive building with facing mellow brick elevations with feature bays and arches, under a small, plain tiled roof with high brick chimneys.
Wimborne town centre offers an excellent range of shopping facilities including a Waitrose store, and the larger coastal resorts of Poole and Bournemouth are 6 and 8 miles distant respectively.
The apartment benefits from electric night storage heaters, and the principal rooms have a superb outlook onto the gardens. This is an unusual opportunity to acquire one of the favoured ground floor apartments in this popular building, tucked away from main roads and traffic noise, yet close to Redcotts Recreation Ground and Wimborne Square.
A vestibule hall leads to the apartment where there is an entrance hall (with a portaphone door entry security system, and a hot water cylinder cupboard). The 'L' shaped living room has a feature fireplace (with canopy and tiled features and a timber surround), double casement doors lead to the garden, and double doors lead through to a modern, well fitted kitchen having post formed work surfaces with inset stainless steel sink, a comprehensive range of cupboards and drawers, split level AEG double oven, ceramic hob, integrated Miele washing machine, and space for fridge/freezer. Bedroom 1 is a large double bedroom with folding double wardrobe cupboards, a range of full height, mirror fronted wardrobes, and a door to a fully tiled en-suite shower room. The good sized second double bedroom overlooks the main garden area and has a dressing room. There is also a fully tiled bathroom. Outside, there is a single garage, and the attractively landscaped communal gardens surround the building. LEASE: 999 years from 1989. GROUND RENT: £50 per annum. SERVICE CHARGE: Approximately £1635.29 every 6 months (subject to variation for necessary repairs and decoration externally), to include water, drainage, buildings insurance, gardening and cleaning of windows and communal areas.
Directions: From our office at the junction of Park Lane and East Street, follow the one-way system up East Street, which becomes King Street. At the roundabout, take the second exit, towards Blandford, into Victoria Road. Take the second turning on the right, into Westfield Close, and Westfield can be found straight ahead, where there is a large car park. Alternatively, there is a further in-and-out driveway accessed off Redcotts Lane, to the rear of The Kings Head Hotel.
