Glen Ashton is a large Victorian house comprising 6 apartments, while the adjacent Ashton Lodge has been converted into 2 apartments. Traditionally built with facing brick elevations, under a clay tiled roof, the property was originally built in about 1880 as one of Wimborne's main private homes, and converted into apartments in the 1970s. Benefits include mains electricity, water and drainage, and quality oak internal doors (with brushed chrome handles.) There is an impressive covered entrance porch with a double glazed door to the entrance hall which has a built-in double blanket cupboard. The attractive lounge has a westerly aspect, an electric panel heater, and a double glazed casement door (with full height glass screen) to a private garden. The very well presented kitchen comprises an excellent range of work surfaces, inset sink with mixer, base and wall cupboards and drawers, split level single fan oven, 4-plate induction hob, extractor unit, integrated larder fridge and drawer freezer, quality flooring, useful low level storage cupboard, downlighters, and door to a courtyard. Bedroom 1 is a good sized double bedroom with an electric panel heater and views over the garden. The bathroom is well presented and comprises a modern panelled bath (with rainwater shower
head and handspray shower attachment) L-shaped wash basin, concealed cistern WC, and ceramic tiled floor.
