Property details

Inside

Imagine a truly unspoilt rural village in Dorset and a house that is a true home, surrounded by beautiful countryside, full of character, nooks and crannies, window seats to read a book and squishy sofas to relax after a Sunday lunch with all the family and you begin to get a flavour of this wonderful, welcoming property. This has been a glorious family home for our current owners for over 40 years. Originally two cottages, this is the first time the property has ever been on the market in its current guise. Wimborne St Giles sits at the southern end of the Cranborne Chase and West Wiltshire Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and properties here don’t come on the market very often.

This gorgeous country property is set in a delightful spot, opposite the water meadows, with the idyllic village setting in the background. Approached via the driveway to a PARKING AREA, steps lead down through a pretty patio and into the quarry tiled ENTRANCE HALL, awash with light from all the windows that continue up the stairs. There is a handy CLOAKROOM off the entrance hall to the left. Further on through the entrance hall to the right is the very generous SITTING ROOM, a beautiful, comfortable room, packed with character, spacious enough to entertain the whole family and cosy enough to relax in the evenings around the open fire. With no less than six windows and French doors directly out to the garden, it is flooded with light and has views across the water meadows and the gardens.

The KITCHEN is in the centre of the house, a country style kitchen with a beamed ceiling, stripped wooden floor, space for a range style cooker, a range of solid wood units and granite worktops. The kitchen opens up to the DINING ROOM, so it could be possible to open up these two rooms to create one larger kitchen/diner. The dining room is the perfect entertaining space and has an open fire and bay window with views to the front. Off the dining is the SNUG which is currently used as a hobby room, but could equally be a home office, playroom or TV Room. It also has a door allowing direct access from outside. The other side of the dining room is the UTILITY ROOM with a door to the outside. It is a brilliant space for decamping muddy boots, washing the dog or doing the laundry. It has a range of storage cupboards, a sink, space and plumbing for a washing machine and tumble dryer and also houses the boiler.

On the first floor, the charm continues in the PRINCIPAL BEDROOM, a large, impressive room with a vaulted beamed ceiling and views across to the water meadows and over the gardens. A relaxing haven with a whole range of built in wardrobes and space for additional seating, a dressing table or even a sofa. A spacious ENSUITE bathroom serves this bedroom comprising a bath, separate shower cubicle, sink with vanity unity and W.C. BEDROOM 2, another large double room is a beautiful country style bedroom, again with a vaulted beamed ceiling, built in wardrobes, shelving and a desk area. BEDROOM 3 is a charming double bedroom, with characterful beams, a very sweet period fireplace and built-in cupboards, shelving and desk area. BEDROOMS 4 and 5 both attractive rooms are currently used as a children’s room and as a home office/hobby room. There is a further FAMILY BATHROOM with a bath with a shower over it, handbasin and W.C.

Outside

Outside there is plenty of parking and a separate building that consists of a double garage, hallway and small workshop on the ground floor. A spiral staircase leads to a generous studio space on the first floor, a brilliant, bright space that could be used to work from home, run a business or perhaps be developed as an annex or Airbnb rental.

The beautiful gardens are a joy and wrap around the house. Packed with interest with a variety of places to sit and dine or relax. The gardens have a variety of planting including trees, shrubs and flower beds. The front garden is mostly lawn with attractive views across the water meadows to the village. To the side is a bountiful vegetable patch. To the rear is a large lawn area, a patio directly outside the house and an additional section of garden separated from the main garden by a timber screen with climbing clematis, honeysuckle and roses. This area contains a well-maintained swimming pool, patio area and built-in BBQ, an absolute Mediterranean-style delight on a sunny day.
