Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 3
An attractive 3 bedroom detached early 20th century cottage with outstanding views over the adjacent farmland, in a delightful semi-rural lane and yet only just over a mile from Wimborne town centre. Built by Dorset County Council in 1921, and standing in gardens of about 0.4 of an acre, the cottage offers great potential for extension, subject to planning consent.

The cottage has facing brick elevations under a concrete tiled roof, and is connected to mains water and electricity. There is septic tank drainage. In 2017 a large detached double garage (with electric doors) was built. The private, enclosed gardens back directly on to farmland.

An enclosed entrance porch leads to an entrance hall with quality flooring, under stairs cupboard, and back door. Formerly 2 rooms, the living/dining room has wide oak flooring, exposed ceiling beams, a fine view of the garden, and 2 fireplaces, one of which is sealed, and one which has a wood burning stove acting both as a room heater and a back boiler for the central heating and hot water. There is a galley kitchen with work surfaces, stainless steel sink, oak-fronted base and wall cupboards and drawers, full height double storage cupboard, fridge-freezer, washing machine, cooker and extractor. There is also a ground floor shower room with tiled floor, double shower cubicle, wash basin and WC. On the first floor, there are 3 spacious bedrooms with outstanding views. Bedroom 1 has a dual aspect, and bedroom 2 has a shelved cupboard and an airing cupboard with hot water tank.

A 5-bar gate leads to a long gravelled driveway. The large detached double garage has electric up-and-over doors, a personal door, a utility area with space for washing machine, and a covered storage area. To the rear of the house there is a large stone pond with water lilies, surrounded by bullrushes, water buttercups and potentilla. Trees include hazel, elder and laurel. The majority of the garden lies to the south and west sides of the cottage, and includes lawns, wildflowers, shrubs, trees, a timber shed, a water butt and a pedestrian gate to Willett Road.


From Wimborne, proceed along Julians Road to the Lake Gates roundabout. Take the second exit into Wimborne Road and take the first turning on the left into Willett Road. Continue past Lambs Green Lane and Ashington Lane on the right, and Russett House on the left. On the left is a house called The Beeches. Just beyond this, turn into an unmarked gravel track on the right and bear right to The Holdings.
