A beautifully presented 3 double bedroom, three storey late Victorian semi-detached family home about half a mile from Wimborne town centre, with a large rear garden extending to about 100 ft in length, and off road parking for 2 vehicles.
Occupied by the present owners since 2009, the property has been carefully and sympathetically restored to a high standard, and offers much character with some original features.
Hollingside was extended in fairly recent times to create a large second floor bedroom and en suite dressing area, and now provides about 1245 square feet of living space. The property benefits from all mains services, a gas heating system (boiler replaced about 10 years ago), and UPVC double glazed windows throughout. Particular features include 2 open brick fireplaces (both having wood burning stoves), pine picture rails, pine stripped doors and architraves, wrought iron fireplaces to bedrooms 2 and 3 with raised baskets, and all bedrooms are double sized rooms.
Traditionally built, the property has facing brick elevations under a slate roof. An entrance porch leads to a wide entrance hallway with cloaks cupboard. The living room has a floor-to-ceiling brick open fireplace and raised hearth with wood burning stove, and there is a separate dining room featuring an impressive brick fireplace with timber mantel and inset wood burning stove on a brick hearth. The well presented pine kitchen comprises a ceramic sink, modern working surfaces with base cupboards and drawers, 2 pine wall cabinets and plate rack, ceramic tiled floor, Rangemaster range cooker with extractor canopy and light over, understairs storage cupboard (used as a large pantry/larder), and steps lead up to a utility room where there is a worktop, space for washing machine and dishwasher, wall mounted gas boiler, and pine shelves and ceiling. From the kitchen a door leads through to a large conservatory with double glazed UPVC window panels, polycarbonate roof, ceramic tiled floor and double doors to outside. A straight pine staircase with spindles leads to the first floor landing with understairs storage cupboard, and stairs to second floor. On the first floor, bedrooms 2 and 3 both have wrought iron fireplaces with raised baskets, and the impressive, spacious bathroom has a pine boarded floor, modern 'P' shaped bath with mixer tap and rain water shower fitment, pedestal basin, and WC. On the second floor, there is the main bedroom with eaves storage space, 2 Velux roof windows, and a walkway leading to a dressing area (with Velux rooflight).
Outside, there is parking for 2 vehicles, and possible garage space, subject to the necessary planning consents. The front garden has a small lawn, storage area and a hedgerow. The rear garden is a real feature of the house which extends to about 100 ft in length, enclosed by timber fencing, hedgerows, and post and wire fencing. Immediately outside the house there is a small chalet, sun deck entertaining area, and a circular paved terrace. A gate leads to a lawn area with established beds, raised fish pond, and a pathway leads to the main garden area where there is a large timber workshop, raised vegetable cloches, chicken run and house, and 2 greenhouses. In addition, there is a gardeners WC, and log store.
