Originally built in 1960, with brick and tile hung elevations under a concrete tiled roof, Dairy Cottage has been substantially extended, and is connected to mains electricity and water. It has a private drainage system, oil fired central heating, and replacement UPVC double glazed windows and doors.
The nearby village of Furzehill has a post office/shop, whilst Wimborne offers a good range of amenities. There is good access by road to the larger coastal towns of Poole and Bournemouth, both of which have mainline rail links to London Waterloo.
A covered entrance way leads to a large entrance hall with an under stairs cupboard and a cloakroom.
The spacious drawing room is a light, triple aspect room with a slate and pine open fireplace and a door and windows giving outstanding views over the garden. There is a study overlooking the drive.
A particular feature of the house is a superb kitchen/breakfast room with a partly vaulted ceiling and a ceramic tiled floor, fitted with an excellent range of black polished granite work surfaces and framed units. There is a stainless steel range cooker (with 5-burner hob, oven, stainless steel splash plate and mantel incorporating an extractor unit), and space for dishwasher. The breakfast area has double doors to the garden, and a stable door to a spacious, dual aspect dining/family room with an oak floor and a casement door to outside. The family area has a state-of-the-art wood burning stove on a slate hearth and a door to a large boot room with doors to the front of the house, the garage and the utility room (which has worktop, sink and space for washing machine and dryer).
From the entrance hall, a straight staircase leads to a long landing with an attractive view over the village. The master bedroom is a large double with superb views over the garden and farmland beyond. It has a dressing room with an excellent range of wardrobes, and a very well presented en suite bathroom.
Bedrooms 2 and 3 are spacious double bedrooms with outstanding views over the garden and farmland. Bedroom 4 has an attractive view to the front, and there is a family bath/shower room comprising a twin-ended bath, a vanity wash basin, a WC and a walk-in shower.
To the front, a 5-bar gate leads to a gravelled driveway and turning area providing parking for vehicles, trailers and boxes, and there is a detached single garage. The front garden is enclosed by post-and-rail fencing, and is laid to lawn with raised borders and established shrubs.
The large, flat south facing rear garden is enclosed by mixed hedges and fencing and has a fine outlook over the adjacent farmland. There is a large, well maintained lawn (with raised stone borders and established shrubs), a paved entertaining terrace/barbecue area across the width of the house, and a covered area with a wood store. The garden also features a vegetable garden area, a shed, a workshop, a greenhouse and a second paved terrace.
DIRECTIONS: From Wimborne, proceed north on the B3078 Cranborne Road for about 4 miles. Just past the left hand turning for Witchampton, take the next right hand turning, signposted to Hinton Martell. On approaching the centre of the village, Dairy Cottage can be found on the right hand side, before reaching Old Manor Farm.
