Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 3
A delightful 3 bedroom detached Victorian house with a delightful, south east facing garden extending to well over 200ft in length, in the heart of the popular village of Furzehill, about 1 mile north of the market town of Wimborne Minster.

Built circa 1880, the house retains much of its original character and charm, and has red brick cavity walls under a clay tiled roof. It is connected to all mains services, and has gas central heating and timber double glazed windows. There is great potential, subject to planning consent, for extension.

Furzehill is a popular village with a post office/shop and The Stocks Inn, close to Wimborne and to Dumpton Preparatory School, and within easy reach of the coastal towns of Poole and Bournemouth, both of which have mainline rail links to London Waterloo.

A spacious entrance hall leads to a well proportioned sitting room with a wrought iron fireplace and an attractive bay window to the front. The hub of the house is a spacious kitchen/dining room with double doors to the rear garden and a modern kitchen with worktops, ceramic sink, base and wall units, drawers, plate rack, Bosch double oven, 4-burner hob, extractor, fitted Miele dishwasher

Off the kitchen is a walk-in boiler room (with floor standing gas boiler, fitted shelves and fitted Miele washing machine) and a utility room with worktop, fitted larder fridge, drawer freezer and dryer, and door to outside.

Throughout the kitchen and utility areas there is a quality slate tiled floor.

Stairs lead to an L-shaped landing with loft access. Bedroom 1, to the front, has fitted floor-to-ceiling pine wardrobes with sliding doors. Bedroom 2 has a wrought iron and pine Victorian fireplace and a fine open outlook. Bedroom 3 is a singe room with a fitted double wardrobe. There is a well presented, fully tiled shower room with a large walk-in shower, wash basin and WC.

The property is accessed via a shared gravel drive and courtyard. A 5-bar gate and a long gravel driveway lead to an open-fronted double garage with lighting and power. There is an adjacent space for a boat/caravan/trailer.

Outside the house there is a lovely courtyard garden offering almost complete privacy, featuring box hedges, a honeysuckle arbour, a paved terrace and pathway, stone walling, and steps up to a small private terrace with water tap, pergola and climbers. Trees and shrubs including silver birch, magnolia, bottlebrush, euonymus, acer, conifers and hypericum.

Beyond the garaging, a post-and-rail bar retains established shrubs and trees including camellia, copper beech, flowering cherry, monkey puzzle, acer and other shrubs, and there is a lawn and a large garden shed.

The middle garden has a large expanse of lawn enclosed by post-and-rail fencing and mixed hedges. There is a greenhouse, a shed, apple, cherry and pear trees, 2 ponds with timber bridge over, and a wide variety of shrubs.

A footpath and grass walkway lead through a covered arbour to the lower garden, where there is an outstanding view of the adjacent farmland.


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