About the property
A STUNNING LADY WIMBORNE COTTAGE WITH A WEALTH OF CHARACTER
A beautiful Grade II listed Lady Wimborne Cottage, situated in Canford Magna with attractive gardens and space for garage (previous approved planning has lapsed).
This attractive character home is believed to date back to 1888. It is understood 111 Lady Wimborne cottages were built forming part of the Canford Estate for the estate workers. They were built in a gothic Tudor style with features such as moulded brick dressings, ornamental chimneys and lattice windows.
This property is well maintained throughout, whilst retaining many original features, in addition to the mature garden this property also offers a brick built workshop/utility room and additional timber outbuildings.
It is located in Canford Magna, a pretty village approx. 2 miles south of Wimborne Minster, a thriving market town with a range of shops and amenities. Canford Magna is home to Canford, a renowned public school. Approx 400 metres from the house is the River Stour where the Canford suspension bridge leads to riverside walks and is popular with paddleboarders and canoeists.
The ground floor accommodation briefly comprises; external covered porch, lounge to the front elevation with attractive focal point fireplace wood-burner, under stairs cupboard and door to concealed staircase.
A door leads to the bespoke modern wooden kitchen with a wide range of base and eye level cupboards and drawers, ceramic sink, Neff oven, AEG induction hob with canopy fan over, integrated dishwasher and space for an upright fridge/freezer. Door to cloakroom with toilet and cupboard housing boiler.
Two original lattice windows and feature door to the rear, leading to the spacious dining room, which is an extension to the original cottage, with high level ceiling, velux window. Solid oak twin doors and adjacent windows giving aspect and access to the courtyard garden. There is a fireplace ready for a wood-burner to be installed. Full height cupboard.
Upstairs, the landing gives access to all three bedrooms, each with fitted wardrobes. The main bedroom, to the front elevation, also has an over stairs cupboard. The bath and shower room is spacious and boasts a white 4 piece suite including a panelled side bath, shower cubicle, toilet and wash basin.
Outside; The front garden is bound by attractive picket fencing, shingle detail and flower bedding. The rear courtyard is designed to be low maintenance and leads to the brick built workshop/utility, which in turn gives access to a secluded area housing potting shed and lean-to covered store. A path then continues to the main gardens, which incorporate a sun terrace, main lawn and vegetable garden.
