An individually designed village house, set within a good sized private plot, extensive parking, detached double garage and swimming pool.
Winterborne House was built in 1962 by a local builder for his own occupation; individually designed with attractive stone elevations beneath a tiled roof. The present owner has been in occupancy for over 30 years, extending the property to contribute to its now spacious and flexible accommodation. There are plenty of windows throughout the property that allow the light to pour into the house and also to enjoy the views over neighbouring farmland. The accommodation is set over two floors, the ground floor welcomes you into a spacious hallway with staircase; there is a useful cloakroom and study. The sitting room is triple aspect and has a full height Purbeck stone fireplace with woodburning stove. The kitchen/breakfast room is spacious with modern appliances updated within the last few years with a large storage cupboard incorporating laundry appliances and heating boiler. Completing the ground floor accommodation is a useful boot room accessed from the kitchen, leading to outside. On the first floor a spacious landing with two windows, incorporates the airing cupboard and hatch to the loft (with pull down ladder), which is fully boarded with windows and has been historically used as a games room. The five bedrooms all lead from the landing; majority of the rooms have built in bedroom furniture. The master bedroom is quite stunning with built-in wardrobes, a good sized modern en-suite and doubles doors that open onto the balcony, which overlooks the rear garden. The family bathroom was recently replaced and has white sanitary ware including a bath and shower. The house, in our opinion has plenty of potential still and will certainly appeal to a cross section of buyers as well as those seeking ancillary accommodation to convert.
The house is approached through a wide tarmac driveway that widens to provide both extensive parking and turning area in front of the detached double garage and house. The detached double garage is constructed of stone elevations under a tiled roof with two up and over doors, light and power connected with a personal door within the workshop area. The entrance drive is flanked by attractive lawned areas with mature flower beds, trees and shrubs. Wrought iron gates between the house and garage lead to the rear garden. There is a south facing wide, part covered decking area, leading to a terrace patio with stone steps up to an upper lawn area with a stone wall which forms one boundary and this together with mature hedging afford excellent privacy. Just behind the garage is a garden shed and the oil tank. A paved pathway meanders its way through the garden to a secure swimming pool area. This area is walled with planted shrubs and a timber gate giving access to the pool which has a wide paving encircling the pool allow ample space for sun bathing or alfresco dining. The pool house comprises a bar area with sink and separate changing rooms with French windows opening onto the paved sitting area. There is a separate boiler room with filtration equipment which heats and cleans the pool. From the garden fine views can be enjoyed over the neighbouring farmland and towards the church.
