High specification modern house enjoying a secluded location in the centre of Wimborne Minster.


A rare opportunity to purchase an almost new, high specification house right in the centre of Wimborne Minster. The house was built to the owner’s exacting standards around two years ago and has handsome elevations of facing brickwork with stone quoins and window sills, and small paned Georgian style windows, under a plain tiled roof. Some of the many features include double glazed windows, gas fired central heating that is underfloor to the ground floor, quality fitted kitchen with integrated appliances, three bath or shower rooms, two of which are en suite, oak finished internal doors, and a delightful garden room or guest suite with an en suite shower room, that would be ideal for use as a home office.

The panelled front door leads into the entrance hall with understairs storage and a cloakroom/ shower room. The well-proportioned sitting room has double aspects including French doors to the garden, and a Minster stone fireplace with gas coal fire. Double doors lead through to the good sized kitchen/ breakfast room fitted with a range of floor and wall cupboards, with integrated appliances including twin Neff ovens, Neff induction hob and extractor, an integrated dishwasher and fridge/ freezer. The breakfast area has French doors to the terrace and garden. There is separate dining room or study, which could be used with the adjacent shower room as a bedroom. The utility room is fitted with a range of units, a sink, plumbing and space for washer and dryer, and a linen cupboard housing the hot water cylinder. A door leads to the garage with gas fired central heating boiler.

From the hall a handsome oak staircase leads up to the landing with further linen cupboard. The main bedroom has a range of built in furniture and a fully tiled en suite shower room with a glazed shower and twin basins. The second bedroom has fitted wardrobes and an en suite shower room, the third bedroom has fitted wardrobes, and adjacent fully tiled family bathroom.

The house is approached via a driveway, the first part of which is shared by the neighbouring property. Tall iron gates on brick pillars open into the private block paved driveway with parking area adjacent to the front door. There is an attached large single or small double garage having a pitched roof and electric roller shutter door. To the side is a further parking space. The lawned gardens are mainly at the side and rear and include a large paved terrace wrapping around the house, perfect for outdoor entertaining. There are established hedges along the boundaries providing seclusion, a range of mature shrubs and a fine horse chestnut tree. The useful Garden Studio has an en suite shower room and is currently used as a guest suite, but would be equally useful as a home office.
