  • Bedrooms: 4
Fairacre is a superbly presented 4 double bedroom detached home STANDING IN GARDENS OF ABOUT 0.281 ACRES, WITH A SOUTHERLY VIEW OVER DOGDEAN TOWARDS GREENHILL in the popular village of Furzehill, about 1.25 miles north of Wimborne town centre.

Built in the 1950s and substantially extended by the previous owners around 2004, Fairacre now extends to about 2117ft and is presented in truly excellent condition throughout. It is connected to all mains services and has gas central heating and UPVC double glazed windows and doors throughout.

The fourth double bedroom has been opened up to create a dressing room for the master bedroom. This could easily be re-configured as the door to the landing is still in place.

Furzehill is a sought after village with a busy Post Office/General Stores and The Stocks Inn. The market town of Wimborne Minster offers a comprehensive range of leisure and retail facilities including a Waitrose store. Dumpton Preparatory School is situated just outside Furzehill, and the wider area is well served by a range of state and independent schools.

The large reception hallway has an engineered oak floor, and leads to an impressive sitting room with an engineered oak floor, central ornamental fireplace and a bay window overlooking the driveway. Wide casement doors lead to a feature garden room with a tiled, pitched roof, engineered oak floor, and doors giving a superb view over the gardens, swimming pool and farmland beyond.

The modern kitchen/breakfast room has a porcelain floor with under floor heating, polished granite work surfaces, a range of built-in appliances, and a pair of wide double glazed casement doors to the terrace and garden. An American style fridge-freezer is available by separate negotiation.

The ground floor also has a utility room, a cloakroom and a small study.

The first floor has 4 double bedrooms, 3 of which have en suite shower rooms, and a large family bathroom. The en suite to bedroom one, and the family bathroom, have electric under floor heating.

From the master bedroom, an archway has been created into bedroom four, in order to create a dressing room to the master bedroom.

There is ample space (subject to planning permission and building regulations approval) to erect a single garage, replacing the existing workshop. This area is screened by high timber double gates.

The front garden is enclosed by brick walling and substantial close boarded fencing, and there is a small raised shrub border stocked with colourful perennials.

The rear garden is a most attractive feature of the property, being enclosed by natural hedgerows and close boarded fencing, with two separate lawns, and wide stone steps and balustrading leading to the upper lawn. There is a wealth of established shrubs, palms and conifers.

A full width entertaining terrace adjacent to the house offers superb views over the lower swimming pool terrace, the garden and the adjacent countryside.

Set in an Indian sandstone terrace, the 28' x 14' liner pool is heated by a separate gas boiler. The liner has been replaced, and there is a new solar cover for the summer. The heating and pump have been updated, including the sand filter.

From Wimborne, proceed north on the B3078 towards Cranborne. After approximately 1 mile, turn right into Furzehill, and Fairacre can be found on the right hand side.
