Originally built in 1989, the property has been substantially extended and re-modelled in more recent years, and now extends to just over 2,500ft². Traditionally constructed to a particularly high specification, with attractive handmade bricks and a ridged roof of small plain tiles (with a tall brick chimney), the bungalow’s external appearance belies its spacious footprint.
The Winterborne valley is a popular rural location, enjoying easy access to Poole, Bournemouth, Wimborne Minster, Blandford Forum and Dorchester.
The bungalow is connected to mains electricity and water, and has a private drainage system, oil fired central heating, loft and cavity wall insulation, hardwood internal doors, and UPVC double glazed windows, doors, fascias, soffits and gutters. All of the bathrooms are fully tiled, with power showers and under floor heating. The gardens are an outstanding feature.
A wide covered entrance way and UPVC double glazed doors lead to the lower hall which has an arched feature. 3 steps lead to the upper hall and 3 further steps lead down to the main hallway where there is an airing cupboard, and access to both the loft and the garage.
The light, dual aspect living room has a wide oak boarded floor, a feature Bath stone fireplace (with an integrated cassette wood burner), and sliding patio doors to front garden and to the terrace, giving attractive views.
From the living room, a pair of casement doors lead to a separate dining room with sliding patio doors to terrace. An archway and single door lead to the kitchen/family/breakfast room.
The kitchen area has an excellent range of granite work surfaces, a 1.5 under-bowl sink (with cornice and downlighters over) and a good range of base cupboards, drawers, and matching wall cabinets. Appliances include twin Neff ovens, microwave, warming drawer, Neff 6-plate touch-control ceramic hob, integrated extractor (with oak beam feature), and integrated dishwasher. There is space for fridge/freezer, the walls are partly tiled, and there is a slate floor. The breakfast/family area has space for a table and chairs. The separate utility room has matching granite work surfaces, sink unit, base cupboards, wall cabinets, full height food storage cupboard, and cupboard housing the oil fired boiler.
From the breakfast/family area, double doors lead to a magnificent conservatory on a brick plinth, with UPVC double glazed window panels (with blinds), 2 opening roof windows (with blinds), 3 radiators, and 2 pairs of casement doors to outside.
The superb principal bedroom suite has a high vaulted ceiling, a Velux rooflight, 2 pairs of casement doors to a covered terrace, 4 built-in double wardrobes and a built-in shelved cupboard. There is a fully tiled en suite bath/shower room with a double-ended jacuzzi bath, twin wash basins in a vanity unit, WC, bidet, and a large double shower cubicle (with glass door, massaging jets and a hand spray shower attachment).
Bedroom 2 is a spacious double room with a box bay window overlooking the front garden, 3 fitted double wardrobes and a chest of drawers. Its fully tiled en suite shower room has a large double shower cubicle, a wash basin and a WC.
Bedrooms 3 and 4 are spacious double rooms overlooking the rear garden. The fully tiled family shower room has a large, enclosed shower cubicle, a wash basin in a vanity unit, and a WC.
Warrenside is approached through 2 brick piers (with lanterns) leading into a large red tarmac driveway/courtyard providing turning space and parking for 4/5 vehicles. There is also an integral double garage with 2 secure roller doors.
The front garden is enclosed by conifer and beech hedgerows and has a large, flat, well maintained lawn with a feature palm tree. The side garden has a brick retaining wall, a planted area, a water tap, a bin storage area and a large terrace, partially covered by a pergola.
A walkway leads to the superb main garden which lies to the rear of the bungalow and is enclosed by mixed hedgerows and post-and-rail fencing. The large undulating lawn is interspersed with a variety of trees including eucalyptus, birch, fir and cedar, and a range of established shrubs. A large entertaining terrace wraps around the rear of the bungalow, and there is also a private deck and terrace outside the principal bedroom. The garden offers privacy and features a large, productive vegetable garden area, log storage, numerous power points, and a large timber tractor/mower shed.
