The property has been in the same ownership since the mid 1970's and has spacious flexible accommodation arranged over two floors, however refurbishment will now be required throughout. This elegant house has rendered elevations under a slate roof and classic symmetrical proportions with large sash windows providing lots of light. Inside there is a large family kitchen and a particularly charming drawing room overlooking the gardens. On the first floor depending on the preferred configuration there are 6/7 bedrooms.
Wareham is one of Dorset's loveliest market towns and is known as The Gateway to the Isle of Purbeck. Pleasantly situated between the rivers Piddle and Frome, Wareham became established as an important Cross Channel Port in Saxon times when the pretty quay would have been a busy place with ships arriving from the continent. The massive earth walls built around the perimeter in King Alfred's reign still survive in many places. Wareham offers an excellent range of amenities including an intercity train service, the journey to London (Waterloo) taking approximately 2¼ hours. The highly regarded Priory Hotel which dates from the 16th century fronts on to the River Frome and the Church of St Martin is one of the oldest in the county with parts dating from the early 11th century. The Isle of Purbeck is renowned for its magnificent scenery and rugged coastline which now forms part of the World Heritage Jurassic Coast. The larger towns of Poole (9 miles) and Bournemouth (13 miles) are within easy distance. Sporting facilities in the area include golf courses at Wareham, The Dorset Golf and Country Club and at the Isle of Purbeck. There is racing at Salisbury and Wincanton; hunting with the Portman & South Dorset Hunts. There are excellent shoots locally and both river and sea fishing. There are safe bathing beaches at Studland and Swanage (both approximately 10 miles) and a full range of water sports are within easy reach along the Dorset coast with a large sheltered harbour at Poole. There are excellent schools in the area including Canford, Bryanston, Clayesmore, Milton Abbey and Sherborne, together with a number of preparatory schools, good primary and secondary schools.
From Pound Lane there is access at the side of the property to a partially roofed parking area with space for numerous vehicles and access through to the garden. To the rear the large and attractive mature gardens face in a southerly direction, with enclosed boundaries and pedestrian access to the lane. The gardens are mostly laid to lawn, with some lovely mature tress and shrubs throughout and a large terrace to the rear of the house. On the western boundary is a disused swimming pool.
