    About this property

    • An exceptionally spacious and well presented detached family house having brick elevations under a tiled roof. The house was originally built in the 1990s and was subsequently extended and the loft converted to provide additional rooms.

      It has the benefit of oil fired central heating and UPVC double glazed windows. An outstanding feature is that the rear garden enjoys delightful views over woodland and heathland managed by the Dorset Wildlife Trust. The house offers bright accommodation with excellent room sizes and must be viewed internally to be fully appreciated.

      A half glazed front door with leaded panel opens into the reception hall with under stairs cupboard and guest cloakroom. The drawing room has double aspect windows including French doors to the garden, a brick fire surround with log burner and wood beam mantel. Further reception rooms include a family room currently used as a library, a study/music room and a formal dining room with deep storage cupboard used as a bar.

      The large kitchen/breakfast room runs across the rear of the house and has a range of oak fronted units with breakfast bar, electric AIMS (Aga Intelligent Managements System) Aga with extractor over set into a brick chimney breast, built-in microwave/grill, induction hob, dishwasher and American fridge/ freezer. Leading off is a conservatory with lovely views over the garden and a utility room with plumbing and space for washer and dryer and a further cloakroom.

      A staircase with turned oak balustrade leads up to the first floor landing with linen cupboard. The main suite includes a generous bedroom area with twin windows to the front, dressing room with a range of built- in wardrobes and a modern shower room with twin basins, glazed shower and WC. There are three further double bedrooms, two of which have en suite shower rooms and fitted wardrobes and the family bathroom.

      The staircase continues up to the second floor landing and to two further attic bedrooms with Velux windows and eaves storage, one also having access to the loft space.

      Ashington Gardens is a small private cul-de-sac of similar properties. A shingle driveway provides parking for five cars and gives access to the integral Double Garage, with electric door and loft storage. At the side are double gates providing access for a car or trailer and there is a log store. The secluded rear garden which enjoys a south and west aspect, has a paved terrace perfect for outdoor entertaining and is laid to lawn with well stocked flower and shrub borders surrounding and along the woodland border. At one side is a productive vegetable garden area and timber garden shed. The gardens immediately adjoin and have a gate onto woodland and heathland managed by the Dorset Wildlife Trust, which provides a delightful natural wooded outlook.

      Service Charge
      The residents of Ashington Gardens have a management company which manages the communal areas and drainage for which there is an annual fee currently £500 per annum.

    I love the beautiful view across natural heathland and woodland, and that you have a gate giving access from the garden
