About the property
AN IMPRESSIVE FAMILY HOME SITUATED IN ONE OF THE AREA'S MOST DESIRABLE LOCATIONS IN GROUNDS OF APPROXIMATELY 5 ACRES, WITH PADDOCKS AND STABLING
Penningtons is located on Arrowsmith Road, a desirable area located between Wimborne and Broadstone offering a rural feel whilst being within easy reach of local amenities. Planning in the local area has been traditionally strictly controlled to preclude over-development with all properties in the road enjoying generous plots. The area is well known for its sought after schooling as well as private schools nearby including Canford, Castle Court, Dumpton and Poole and Parkstone grammar schools. The local area also offers a wealth of recreational facilities including sailing and water sports in Poole Harbour, excellent riding on adjacent Canford Heath as well as Championship golf courses in Broadstone, Parkstone and Ferndown.
Penningtons is a spacious traditional family home enjoying an elevated position with views across the gardens and grounds. Over recent years the property has been extended and improved offering versatile, well planned accommodation briefly comprising 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, 3 reception rooms, plus a leisure suite comprising a games room, with gym, sauna and changing rooms. This area of the house would also make an ideal home office or annex subject to necessary consents.
There are many fine features of a traditional home including majority double glazed sealed unit windows with many stone mullion surrounds and brick built fireplaces with gas fires.
The property is set on approximately 5 acres approached via a gated entrance with a long private drive, detached garage and equestrian facilities with a stable block and paddock, the remainder of the grounds being laid to lawn, woodland and an ornamental lake.
