Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 5
An impressive 5 bedroom detached country bungalow set in gardens and grounds of over 4.25 acres, in the popular village of Three Legged Cross, about 8 miles to the north of Wimborne Minster and 3 miles from the market town of Ringwood.

The bungalow has a range of outbuildings including 5 garages, 2 open-fronted car bays, a large barn workshop, a games room and an indoor swimming pool.

Traditionally constructed in the 1930s, and substantially extended in the 1970s, the 1980s and 1997, Kenston has mainly rendered elevations under a concrete tiled roof. It is connected to mains drainage, water, electricity and gas, and benefits from gas central heating and UPVC double glazed windows throughout.

The bungalow is accessed through wrought iron double gates, and the rear paddocks enjoy a separate access over an adjacent driveway. The whole site is flat and easy to maintain, with formal gardens which are predominantly laid to lawn, and paddocks enclosed by post-and-rail fencing and an established treeline.

Three Legged Cross has the benefit of local shopping facilities, and the coastal resorts of Poole and Bournemouth are within about 20 minutes' drive.

Kenston offers spacious, single storey living accommodation. A covered entrance way leads to a long entrance hall with oak flooring and an arch feature. A walkway leads to a dining area with 2 steps down to a large living area with a floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace (with a log effect gas fire). Wide casement doors (with adjacent full height windows) lead to a spacious conservatory with a glass roof and doors to the garden.

Overlooking the side garden there is a study with a comprehensive range of fitted office furniture. The superb kitchen/family room was re-fitted in 2010 with polished granite work surfaces and a comprehensive range of units including Wilkinson style curved panels. Appliances include a Rangemaster range cooker, an integrated dishwasher, a wine cooler and an American style fridge/freezer. There is a breakfast area with space for a table and chairs, and a stable door to an open rear porch. The utility/cloakroom has a WC, a sink, a gas boiler and space for white goods.

An inner hall gives access to 5 bedrooms (4 double and 1 single) and 3 bathrooms (2 of which are en suite).

The driveway, gardens and grounds are particularly well maintained. Housed in a gabled pine log cabin with a bar area, the 20' swimming pool incorporates a jacuzzi and a swimspa' feature. The pool is electrically heated and surrounded by a soft floor for health and safety.

3 of the garages have ledged-and-braced doors, and 2 have roller doors.


From Three Legged Cross, proceed east on the B3072 Ringwood Road, passing John Brown's Garden Centre on the right. Kenston can be found on the right hand side, just past the right hand turning to Gundrys Farm campsite.
