Horton Heath, Wimborne, Dorset


Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 3
A most impressive and deceptive, 3 double bedroom detached modern bungalow situated on the main Horton to Ringwood Road, set in gardens and paddocks of about 1 acre, with a substantial self-contained annexe. The property features a magnificent open plan living area incorporating a large conservatory overlooking the swimming pool and gardens.

Originally built in the 1970s, and substantially extended and refurbished in more recent years, the bungalow will appeal to purchasers with equestrian interests, also for those requiring an annexe or home working facility.

Traditionally built, with facing brick elevations under a concrete tiled roof, the bungalow extends to almost 2,000ft. It is situated between Horton village and Three Legged Cross, and set back from the road.

Connected to mains electricity and water, the property has a private drainage system, oil fired heating and UPVC double glazing throughout.

Local shops are available in Three Legged Cross and West Moors, whilst the market towns of Wimborne Minster and Ringwood are both within about 15 minutes' drive.

A covered entrance way with a brick paved floor leads to a spacious hall with ceramic floor tiles which continue throughout the living and kitchen areas. Bedroom 1 is a spacious room with a range of floor-to-ceiling wardrobes, double doors to outside, and a fully tiled en suite shower room with shower, wash basin and WC. Bedroom 3 is also a double room with quality flooring and a range of floor-to-ceiling wardrobes.

A door from the hall leads to a larger inner hall. Bedroom 2 is a very large bedroom with quality flooring and a range of floor-to-ceiling wardrobes and dressing table. The fully tiled family bathroom has an inset jacuzzi bath (set in a tiled surround with 3 steps leading up to the bath), wash basin, WC, and mirror-fronted cupboard.

The main living/conservatory/family room comprises the original living room with a wide archway leading into a large conservatory with a domed glass roof and double and single doors to outside. There is a fireplace with an inset wood burning stove, and a ceramic tiled floor. A walkway leads to the kitchen/breakfast room which has an excellent range of black work surfaces, graphite sink, comprehensive range of contemporary high gloss soft-close units, large island/breakfast bar, and appliances including wall mounted twin ovens, microwave unit, coffee machine, 2 integrated larder fridges, touch-control induction hob, extractor and integrated dishwasher.

An archway leads to a separate dining room with single and double doors to a large timber deck. A pool table, fitted bar and dresser are available by separate negotiation.

Overlooking the driveway there is a lounge which was formerly used as a cinema room. An Infocus cinema projector is available by separate negotiation.

The former detached double garage is now a well presented, self-contained annexe with panelled walls, original up-and-over door still in situ, wood burning stove, excellent range of storage cupboards and wardrobes, breakfast bar, and kitchen area (with hardwood worktops, cupboards and drawers, stainless steel sink and fridge.) There is an en suite shower room with wash basin and WC.

A 5-bar gate leads into a large gravel driveway and courtyard, screened from the road by a belt of mature trees including oak, birch and conifer. There is parking for up to 10 vehicles.

The rear garden offers complete privacy, being enclosed by conifers and bamboo, and has a full width paved terrace with steps down to the garden, a large lawn and a large timber sun deck. There is a large balustraded sun terrace with an inset 10 x 5 metres swimming pool, and an adjacent timber gazebo.

A 5-bar gate leads into a large paddock which is laid to grass, largely enclosed by conifers, and partly sub-divided by post-and-rail fencing, with field shelter and storage shed.
