Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 3
A 3 bedroom semi-detached house standing in a large garden plot in the heart of this picturesque village. Built in the 1940s on land owned by the Shaftesbury Estate, the property has undergone a course of refurbishment in the last 2 years, including a new oil fired central heating system, UPVC double glazing and newly fitted kitchen and bathroom. The gardens have been landscaped, providing ample off road parking, and the house offers scope for extension, subject to planning consent. Detailed Planning Permission was granted in 2020 to convert the workshop which adjoins the house into a dining/garden room with doors to the garden.

Set back from the village road, the property adjoins open countryside owned by the Shaftesbury Estate to the rear. Wimborne St Giles has a First School, a nursery, a post office/shop/tea room, a parish church and a village shop.

An enclosed entrance porch leads to a reception hall, off of which there is a study/bedroom 4 with solid oak flooring, open fireplace and arched alcove. There is a spacious, dual aspect living room with open fireplace and French doors to the rear garden. Double doors open through to the kitchen which has Shaker style units, solid oak worktops, Belfast sink, integrated dishwasher, fridge and freezer and space for cooker. A door leads to a utility area with Worcester oil central heating boiler, space and plumbing for washing machine and tumble dryer, and door to the garden. There is a cloakroom with WC and corner wash basin. From the reception hall, a staircase leads to the first floor landing which runs across the front of the property and has a linen cupboard and lovely views across the village. All 3 bedrooms have exposed timber floorboards. Bedroom 1 has a built-in corner wardrobe and an open fireplace, and bedroom 2 has built-in wardrobes and exposed timber floorboards. The family bathroom has a modern white suite comprising bath, WC and wash basin, and towel radiator.

The large front garden is approached off a gravel driveway providing a turning area and ample off road parking, and there is a large lawn with well stocked flower and shrub borders. To the side of the house there is a kitchen garden area and a gate to the rear garden which offers a fair degree of privacy, and has a greenhouse, a seating area and a shaped lawn interspersed with shrubs and trees. The plot amounts to just under a quarter of an acre in total.
