Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 4
A delightful 4 bedroom detached chalet style home in the favoured Tower Lane, a quiet gravel lane tucked away from main roads and less than 1 mile from Wimborne town centre.

Traditionally constructed in the 1960s by a well known local building company, with stone and rendered elevations under a concrete tiled roof, Tabgha has been substantially extended in more recent years. It is connected to all mains services, with gas central heating and replacement leaded UPVC double glazed windows, and, subject to planning consent, offers potential for extension. Tower Lane is effectively a cul-de-sac, leading off Beaucroft Road and finishing in a pedestrian footpath to Rowlands Hill. The thriving town of Wimborne offers a wide range of amenities including schools for all ages, a Waitrose store and a theatre/cinema, and there is easy access by road to the coastal towns of Poole and Bournemouth, both of which have mainline rail links to London Waterloo.

An enclosed entrance porch with a tiled floor and a large window to the front leads to an L-shaped entrance hall with under stairs storage space. There is a fully tiled shower room. The large, dual aspect sitting room has a stone fireplace (with inset Jetmaster wood burning stove) and casement doors giving fine views over the garden. There is a spacious study to the rear, and the fourth bedroom is a spacious double room to the front. The kitchen/breakfast room has units, work surfaces, inset sink, ventilated walk-in larder, Miele double fan oven, 4-burner gas hob, integrated extractor, recess for fridge-freezer, and space for dishwasher. There is a utility room with cupboards, drawers, work surfaces, and doors to the garage and outside. There is a dining room with glazed double doors leading to a conservatory with a high gabled glass roof and double doors to the garden. These rooms have feature wide oak boarded floors.

A staircase with an oak handrail leads to a semi-galleried first floor landing with airing cupboard and walk-in store room (with access to eaves). The impressive, dual aspect principal bedroom has a comprehensive range of furniture including wardrobes, dressing table, bench seat, bedside cabinets and arch features, and an en suite bath/shower room (with twin-ended bath and shower above, and vanity unit incorporating wash basin and WC). Bedroom 2 has 2 fitted double wardrobes and dressing table. Bedroom 3 is a spacious double with 2 fitted single wardrobes and 4 high level cupboards. There is a family bathroom with bath, basin, WC and half tiled walls.

Tabgha has an integral double garage with electric door, fitted benches and useful storage space. Substantial wrought iron gates and a pedestrian gate lead to a wide pavioured driveway with space for at least 3 vehicles. The front garden is enclosed by close boarded fencing, walling and a hedge, and has a flat, well maintained lawn and a wealth of shrubs and trees including hydrangeas, camellias, fuschias and flowering black cherry. Wrought iron gates lead under honeysuckle arbours to the main garden area to the side of the house. This private area has a large, well maintained lawn, a magnolia, a maple tree, circular beds, an enclosed gazebo/chalet which could be used as a studio/work area, and a paved terrace with automatic sun blind, paved pathways, roses, conifers, rhododendrons and a wealth of other shrubs. There is a second terrace enclosed by trellising, with a garden shed. The small rear garden area is mainly pavioured with 2 sitting areas and wood storage.


From Wimborne, proceed up Rowlands Hill, passing Colehill Cricket Ground on the left. Take the first turning on the right into Beaucroft Road, and first right into Tower Lane. Tabgha is the second house on the right.
