Built in 1998 by Berkeley Homes Ltd, the property has recently been substantially extended, re-modelled and updated to the highest specification, and no expense has been spared in the creation of a fabulous family home which now extends to over 6,000ft², arranged over 3 floors with an internal passenger lift to all levels.

This exceptional residence is tucked away from traffic, enjoying complete privacy, in a quiet unmade gravel lane between Park Homer Road and Kyrchil Lane, in the heart of Colehill.

It boasts a wealth of outstanding features including a magnificent kitchen/dining/family room, 4 en suites, a detached 3-car garage complex (with a tractor store, and a self-contained apartment over) and impressive landscaped grounds.

The house is of traditional construction with red brick elevations, stone mullions, ornate clay tiled bays, timbered gable features, a ridged roof of small plain tiles, and 2 brick chimneys.

Local shops and state schools are available in Colehill, and Wimborne town centre is about 1.5 miles away. Mainline railway stations are easily accessible at Poole and Bournemouth.

The area is well served by the preparatory schools of Dumpton at Furzehill and Castle Court at Corfe Mullen, and these are complemented by Canford School in Canford Magna, and Bryanston School at Blandford.

A flight of wide, curved stone steps leads up to an open-fronted entrance porch with a stone floor.

Glazed oak double doors lead to a triple aspect drawing room with a stone open fireplace (with fitted gas fire), oak floor, feature bay window and superb views of the garden. There is a triple aspect snug overlooking the garden, and a study overlooking the front garden and drive, with an oak floor and fitted floor-to-ceiling bookshelves.

The centrepiece of the ground floor is the magnificent L-shaped kitchen/dining/family room which features 2 sets of double doors to the garden terrace, an excellent range of kitchen units (supplied by Country Image of Blandford), granite surfaces, an impressive L-shaped island, twin Franke sinks, Aga range and module (with 2 hotplates, 4-burner ceramic hob and 3 ovens), concealed extractor, full height fridge and freezer, integrated dishwasher, wine cooler, oak breakfast table and large format limestone floor tiles.

From the hall, an oak and wrought iron staircase leads to the first floor landing.

The impressive principal bedroom suite features an inner hallway, a vaulted ceiling, a feature full height A-frame window overlooking the garden, and fitted headboard and bedside cabinets. Its fully tiled en suite shower room comprises a large walk-in shower cubicle, twin Durant wash basins with drawers below, concealed cistern WC and bidet, and there is an en suite dressing room with open-fronted hanging space.

An oak staircase gives access to the second floor landing which has 3 rooflights. Bedroom 5, a double room to the front, has fitted wardrobes and a fully tiled en suite shower room (with shower cubicle, vanity unit, wash basin and concealed cistern WC.) Bedroom 6, a large double bedroom currently used as a study, has a door to a plant room (with worktop and storage space beneath.)

Outside, there is a detached triple garage with 3 electric doors, lighting, power, a tractor store, and an external staircase to a spacious 1 bedroom apartment ideal for use as a studio/annexe/Airbnb.

The property is accessed via a long, sweeping tarmac drive flanked by lawns and a wealth of trees and shrubs including azaleas, camellias and rhododendrons. There is an extensive parking area in front of the house, and the front garden includes planted brick walls and a sandstone pathway to the main garden.

Across the back of the house is an impressive southerly facing sandstone entertaining terrace. Beautifully maintained lawns slope gently away from the house, and there is a further terrace and a wealth of planting including acers, azaleas, and maples. The garden offers complete privacy and culminates in a tranquil private woodland area at the boundary.

The picturesque market town of Wimborne Minster is centred around a charming town square and boasts a lively shopping area featuring both independent shops and national chain stores, a good range of pubs and restaurants, the Tivoli theatre/cinema and the historic Minster church. There are state schools for all ages, and the surrounding area is well served by both grammar and independent schools. There is easy access by road to the coastal towns of Poole and Bournemouth, both of which have mainline rail links to London Waterloo. Beautiful countryside surrounds the town and Dorset’s stunning beaches are within easy reach.

Proceed up Rowlands Hill, past Colehill Cricket Ground and along Wimborne Road to the crossroads opposite Colehill Post Office. Turn right into Middlehill Road, and right again into Park Homer Road. Turn right into Kyrchil Way, and the second driveway on the left leads to the property.
