Traditionally constructed as a bungalow in the 1970s, Henddol has rendered elevations, a cement boarded front gable and a roof of small tiles (with an A-frame dormer and a brick chimney.) No expense has been spared in creating a high specification contemporary home which benefits from mains electricity and water, private drainage, oil fired heating and quality UPVC double glazed windows and doors throughout.
Gaunts Common has a First School, and local shops and a pub are available in the nearby village of Furzehill. The thriving town of Wimborne offers an excellent range of amenities, and there is easy access by road to the coastal towns of Poole and Bournemouth, both of which have mainline rail links to London Waterloo.
A covered entrance way with an oak pier and oak double glazed panels lead to the hallway, which has a built-in coat cupboard and leads to a cloakroom. The high gloss, large format ceramic tiled floor continues into a magnificent, open plan kitchen/dining room which features bifold doors to a sandstone terrace.
The superbly appointed kitchen has an excellent range of framed units, polished granite surfaces, twin butler’s sinks and a large island in a contrasting colour with a matching curved granite surface, excellent storage and 3 tulip style light fittings above. Appliances include Toledo twin fan ovens, 5-plate ceramic induction hob (with glass splashplate), extractor, and integrated dishwasher, full height fridge and drawer freezer. There is an under stairs cupboard, and a door to a separate utility room with work surfaces, circular sink with drainer, cupboards and drawers, integrated washing machine, cupboard housing the pressurised hot water system, and door to a side lobby.
An archway from the dining area leads to the light, triple aspect living room which overlooks the garden and features a brick open fireplace (with marble hearth and oak mantel.)
Bedroom 4 is a large double with a built-in wardrobe. An oak and glass staircase leads to a semi-galleried landing with large walk-in storage cupboard and eaves access.
On the first floor, bedroom 1 is a large double with en suite dressing room and shower room, and a superb view over the village. Bedrooms 2 and 3 are double rooms with full height windows overlooking the rear garden, and there is a spacious, well appointed, fully tiled family bath/shower room with double-ended bath, vanity wash basin, cupboards, WC, and large walk-in double shower (with rainwater shower head.)
Outside, a grass verge and a wide tarmac slipway lead to a spacious shingle driveway (with parking space for at least 4 vehicles) and an attached single garage with up-and-over door, personal door, lighting and power.
The front garden is enclosed by timber fencing and features a large, flat lawn, and shrubs including camellias, rhododendrons and climbing roses.
The rear garden is enclosed by close boarded fencing offering complete privacy, and has a large, well maintained lawn with raised sleeper borders, oil tank and exterior oil boiler. To the rear of the garage there is a well presented office with double glazed casement doors and a tiled floor. Between the garage and the house there is an enclosed passageway giving access to the front and rear gardens, the house and the garage.
