Built circa 1975 as a much smaller property, and extended in 2008 and 2014 to provide a spacious family home, the house is of traditional cavity wall construction, with a small brick plinth, rendered elevations, timber features to the front, a large side dormer, and a concrete tiled roof. It is connected to all mains services and has gas central heating (with a combination boiler), and UPVC double glazed windows.
Local shops are less than half a mile away in Middlehill Road, and Wimborne town centre is within a few minutes’ drive.
In our opinion, the house is presented to a particularly high standard, with a high standard of decoration and floor coverings. A particular feature is a superb kitchen/dining/family area overlooking the rear garden and farmland beyond.
There is an L-shaped entrance hallway with under stairs dresser and access to a rear porch (with cloakroom and door to outside.) Off the hall, there is a utility room with worktop, stainless steel sink, base and wall cupboards, and space for washing machine.
The house features a superb L-shaped living room with a central wood burning stove on a raised brick plinth, and 2 pairs of casement doors to the deck and garden. A study overlooks the front garden, and has quality flooring. Bedroom 4 is a spacious room overlooking the front garden.
The hub of the house is the magnificent kitchen/dining/family area which has exposed ceiling timbers and a fine view over the garden and farmland beyond. The well presented kitchen has solid oak work surfaces, a comprehensive range of units, LED downlighters, double fan oven, 5-burner gas hob, extractor, integrated dishwasher, larder fridge and drawer freezer, and partly tiled walls. There is a brick wall feature between the kitchen and dining room, and space for a table and chairs. The family area has a lantern rooflight and a pair of double glazed doors to the deck and garden. Quality oak finish Karndean flooring extends throughout the hall and kitchen/dining/family area.
A straight staircase leads to the first floor landing which has loft access, a double linen cupboard, and access to eaves space. Bedroom 1, to the front, has a rooflight, downlighters, a range of built-in wardrobes, and an en suite shower room with fully tiled shower cubicle, wash basin, WC, towel rail and rooflight.
Bedrooms 2 and 3 have built-in double wardrobes, and superb views of the garden and farmland beyond. The family bath/shower room has an enclosed bath, wash basin, WC, impressive corner shower cubicle, and ceramic tiled floor.
Accessed from the unmade section of Pilford Heath Road, there is a spacious concrete paved driveway offering parking for up to 6 cars, and leading to a detached garage (with up-and-over door.) The front garden has a stone stack wall, a hedge and a grass bank.
The delightful rear garden is enclosed by hedges and has a well maintained, gently sloping lawn, established birch tree, beech hedge, clematis, shed, and steps leading up to a large sun deck with storage space beneath. A secure UPVC door leads to a useful storage room beneath the family room. The rear boundary has post-and-rail fencing to maximise the view of the adjacent farmland.
DIRECTIONS: From Wimborne, proceed up Rowlands Hill and along Wimborne Road to the staggered crossroads at the Co-op/Post Office. Proceed across into Lonnen Road and follow the road along. Proceed round a right hand bend and turn right into Sandy Lane. Before the road bends round to the right, turn left into the unmade section of Pilford Heath Road, and the property can be found on the right hand side.
