This semi-detached, four bedroom cottage has been extensively remodelled and sympathetically refurbished with an extended footprint and now offers spacious, light and versatile accommodation. Works have been completed to an exacting standard and the heart of this delightful home is undoubtedly the open plan living area overlooking the large, secluded rear garden with bi-fold doors leading out from both the kitchen and the lounge. The exclusive landmark development of Stapehill Abbey is nearby which has acres of beautifully maintained ornamental gardens with lake and fountain - the new owner of The Gatehouse will have exclusive rights to enjoy the grounds!
There are two bedrooms on the ground floor and these are served by a luxuriously appointed bathroom and on the first floor, there are two further double ensuite bedrooms - one with a Juliet balcony overlooking the generously sized and fully enclosed rear garden.
Outside to the front, a driveway providing ample off-road parking leads to a newly constructed detached oversize garage measuring 15 feet wide by 20 feet deep with power and light, roller door and personal side door to the garden.
Set in a non-estate semi rural location on Stapehill Road just opposite the landmark re-development of Stapehill Abbey between Ferndown and Wimborne. Just far enough from the main road network to enjoy tranquillity and seclusion, yet within easy reach of local amenities.
The charming Minster town of Wimborne is nestled between the Cranborne Chase Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty to the North, The New Forest National Park to the East and the famous World Heritage Jurassic coastline to the South.
The town itself offers an eclectic mix of shops, cafes, restaurants and bars together with a variety of independent retail outlets. The Tivoli theatre offers theatre, concert and cinema entertainment and a Waitrose store is nearby.
Poole and Bournemouth train stations offer a regular main line train service to London (Waterloo). Bournemouth and Southampton airports both offer flights to a range of domestic and foreign destinations. Cross channel ferries sail from Poole and Portsmouth.
There are a number of well-regarded private and state schools in the area including Queen Elizabeth's and Dumpton School, Canford, Bryanston and Clayesmore. Public leisure facilities are available at Queen Elizabeth's Leisure Centre. There are lovely countryside walks locally and along the World Heritage Jurassic Coast footpaths to the south. Sailing and other water sports can be enjoyed in Poole Harbour.
