Traditionally built circa 1976, the property has been owned by our clients since 2013 and is presented in truly excellent decorative order throughout, with many outstanding features. The house extends to over 2100ft² and has facing brick elevations under a concrete tiled roof.
Holt is a popular rural setting with a pub/restaurant (The Old Inn), and local shopping facilities are available in the nearby village of Furzehill. Wimborne town centre offers a comprehensive range of amenities, and there is easy access by road to the coastal towns of Bournemouth and Poole, both of which have mainline rail links to London Waterloo.
70 Lodge Road is connected to mains electricity, water and drainage, and has UPVC double glazed windows and doors, cavity wall insulation, and an oil fired heating system (with a recently installed external oil boiler.) All principal rooms have an attractive open outlook, and, in our opinion, no expense has been spared in creating a beautifully presented, modern home. The gardens are a particular feature, backing onto fields at the rear, and the property benefits from a detached double garage and excellent parking.
A wide covered entrance way with paved semi-circular steps and a ceramic tiled floor leads to a composite front door with full height glass panels. The entrance hall has a staircase leading to the first floor, and superb Karndean flooring runs through from the hall into the kitchen.
There is a superb dual aspect living room with an attractive bay window to the front, casement doors to the rear garden, and a state-of-the-art wood burning stove set on a slate hearth with a slate feature over.
The superb, contemporary style kitchen/breakfast room has double doors (with matching side screens and part glazed roof over) to the garden, a range of hard stone work surfaces, a stainless steel under-bowl sink, and an excellent range of units. A feature of the room is a large island with a range of storage drawers, a breakfast bar to seat 5 people, and 2 feature lights above. Full height oak doors lead to a built-in larder with wine rack, storage shelves and sensor lighting. The appliances include double oven and grill, touch-control ceramic induction hob, integrated dishwasher, wine cooler and larder fridge. From the kitchen, there is a walkway into a family room overlooking the front garden, which has a feature wood burning stove on a slate hearth with a brick feature over.
Off the kitchen there is a large utility room with stainless steel sink, work surfaces, an excellent range of storage cabinets, a full height storage cupboard, and space for washing machine. A sliding door leads to a cloakroom with WC and corner wash basin, and a door leads to a boot room with paved floor, door to outside, and excellent coat hanging and storage space.
From the entrance hall, stairs lead to the ‘L’ shaped semi-galleried landing. Agents’ Note: There is excellent space in the loft to create additional accommodation, subject to the necessary planning consents. An inner landing leads to the principal bedroom, which is a dual aspect room with superb views over the farmland opposite. It has a spacious, fully fitted en suite dressing room and a large en suite bath/shower room with double-ended feature bath, semi-pedestal wash basin, WC, large walk-in double shower, Karndean flooring and views over farmland.
Bedroom 2 has a fitted wardrobe, and views over farmland. Bedroom 3 is a spacious double room with views over the rear garden and fields beyond, fitted wardrobe, and vanity unit with cupboard, drawers and inset wash basin.
Bedroom 4 is a spacious single room with views over farmland. The family shower room has a large shower cubicle, a wide wash basin set in a semi-pedestal with drawers beneath, and a WC.
Outside, a 5-bar gate gives access to a large tarmac courtyard with parking for at least 5 vehicles. The front garden is enclosed by timber fencing and beech hedges. Secure double gates lead to the rear garden, where there is space for at least 3 vehicles, and a detached double garage with twin up-and-over doors, lighting and power. Behind the garage, there is an oil storage tank on a plinth, and storage bins.
The rear garden is enclosed by timber fencing and backs onto open farmland, with a superb open view, a well maintained lawn, established shrubs, climbers, a raised paved entertaining terrace, a bike store, fruit cages with established raspberry, gooseberry and blackcurrant bushes, 2 substantial sheds and a useful exterior leisure room.
