RARE OPPORTUNITY – A superb Grade ll listed Georgian House with far reaching COUNTRY VIEWS in 20 acres of SCENIC GROUNDS. *9 BEDS* *POOL* *EQUESTRIAN FACILITIES* *3 SELF-CONTAINED FLATS*

A very rare opportunity to acquire one of the finest Grade II listed Georgian houses in Dorset with far reaching country views, set in 20 acres of magnificent gardens, grounds and paddocks.

This stunning Grade II listed Georgian Country House is set in a quiet elevated position to the west of Wimborne Minster with superb parkland gardens and grounds extending to approximately 20 acres including excellent equestrian facilities with well drained paddocks, menage and loose boxes as well as a redundant barn with possible planning potential.

The picturesque Estate is situated within pleasant countryside to the west of Wimborne and on the north edge of Corfe Mullen. Standing on rising ground, the main house overlooks mature gardens and grounds within a quiet and private location, yet only 9 miles from Bournemouth and 11 miles from Sandbanks beaches.

There are exceptional far-reaching views from various parts of the property over the Stour Valley towards Cranborne Chase. The area is well known for sporting and leisure facilities including sailing in Poole Harbour, golf at Ferndown, Parkstone and Remedy Oak, hunting with the South Dorset and Portman Hunts, walking on the Isle of Purbeck, Cranborne Chase, and the New Forest to the east.

There are first class schools in the area including Castle Court, Dumpton, Canford, Bryanston and Clayesmore. London (about 100 miles) by car is reached by dual carriageway A31, M27 and M3, or by rail via Bournemouth–Waterloo (1hr 48 mins). Bournemouth International Airport (20 minutes). Regular cross-channel ferry services are available from Poole.

The house has been the subject of considerable sympathetic modernisation by the present owners whilst retaining many of the fabulous original features including outstanding fireplaces and galleried reception hallway. It has most attractive and imposing elevations with the main section of the house being Georgian with later Victorian additions.

The accommodation is spacious and well planned, offering rooms of good proportions principally arranged on ground and first floors with cellars in the basement and further bedrooms on the second floor in all extending to approximately 9,700 sq ft. This includes 3 self-contained flats situated away from the main living areas of the house in the south wing with separate entrance.

The formal gardens and grounds are a particular feature of this magnificent property with sweeping formal lawns, swimming pool and pool room, terraces, outdoor kitchen with pizza oven and glasshouse.
