This substantial family home occupies a generous plot of approximately one third of an acre in the sought after hamlet of Holtwood, just a few miles north of Wimborne town. The property is directly opposite Holt Wood, a National Trust managed forest.
The property has been extensively remodelled and refurbished offering light, spacious and versatile accommodation throughout.
With UPVC double glazing and oil fired central heating (Worcester Bosch external combi boiler recently fitted) and Calor gas supplying the hob. The heart of this family home is undoubtedly the very large, open plan, L shaped, kitchen/dining/family room with an adjoining conservatory - ideal for family living.
The kitchen has a stylish range of light fronted base and floor to ceiling units, solid oak work tops, and appliances include a range cooker, drinks chiller and integrated dishwasher whilst slate flooring is laid throughout this generously sized room. Double doors open onto a decking area with superb views over to Horton and Horton Tower. Also off the kitchen/diner is a conservatory/sun room with equally impressive views.
French doors give access to an equally well proportioned dual aspect lounge, with feature stone fireplace, bay window overlooking the front of the property and mellow oak flooring laid throughout and extending through to the large and welcoming reception hallway.
Off the hallway there is a ground floor double bedroom with stylishly fitted ensuite shower room. Which can also be used as a second lounge or study.
On the first floor there are four further bedrooms, the master enjoying the benefit of an ensuite bathroom and the remaining three served by a well appointed family bathroom. There is generous eaves storage at first floor level and custom made wardrobes to the master and bedroom 2.
Outside the property has a gated entrance, off a very quiet country lane, with a large driveway leading to an open fronted oak barn style double garage with a secure workshop to the rear and generous parking to either side. Mature planting interspersed throughout the plot ensures a good degree of privacy and seclusion and to the rear of the property there is a decked terrace adjoining the main house as well as a large timber lodge which has a power supply and a generous timber verandah. There are delightful country views reaching towards Horton Tower.
