  • Bedrooms: 4
A spacious, well presented 4 bedroom detached chalet style property in an idyllic rural location off a private lane, with 3-car garaging and delightful country views over land owned by the National Trust. NO FORWARD CHAIN.

Built as a bungalow in the 1960s, the property was converted into a chalet in the 1980s and has been well maintained. It benefits from Calor Gas fired central heating system and mostly replacement UPVC double glazed windows.

Holtwood is a small hamlet close to the village of Holt, which has The Old Inn, a church and a village hall, and about 5 miles from the town of Wimborne Minster which offers a wide range of amenities. The coastal towns of Poole and Bournemouth, both of which have mainline rail links to London Waterloo, are easily accessible, as are the A31 and M27 for Southampton and London.

Bridleways can be accessed from the lane, as can Queens Copse and Holt Forest, which offer many scenic walks.

A UPVC double glazed front door leads to an enclosed entrance lobby with a personal door to the garage. A front door leads to a spacious reception hall with a cupboard containing a Worcester gas central heating boiler.

The dual aspect lounge features a brick fireplace with an inset log burner. A UPVC double glazed patio door leads to a garden terrace. There is a separate dining room.

The kitchen has ample worktops, a range of units, space and plumbing for washing machine and dishwasher, space for upright fridge-freezer, and space for a free standing cooker.

There is a ground floor bedroom (4) with fitted wardrobes, and a family bath/shower room with bath, corner shower, WC, bidet, wash basin and fully tiled walls.

Stairs from the reception hall lead to the first floor landing. The master bedroom has fitted wardrobes and a wash basin. Bedroom 2 has fitted wardrobes, a shower cubicle and a wash basin, and bedroom 3, which has been used as a study, enjoys a delightful country outlook. There is also a cloakroom with WC, wash basin and outstanding views.

Foxgloves has garaging for 3 cars. There is a single garage (with up-and-over door, lighting, power points, window and rear door). Off a separate driveway there is a detached double garage with pitched roof (providing eaves storage space), 2 up-and-over doors, lighting and power points.

The property fronts directly onto the unmade lane and has a delightful country outlook. A driveway provides off road parking, and the front garden has a lawn with flower and shrub borders.

Access at the side of the property leads to a wide shrubbery, a lawn and a kitchen garden area bounded by an established beech hedge. A footpath leads to a more formal garden area with a raised patio, lawns interspersed with shrubs, and a timber summerhouse. The garden is enclosed by hedges adjoining open countryside owned by the National Trust.


From Wimborne, proceed north on the B3078, turning right at Furzehill. Proceed past The Stocks Inn and, at Pig Oak, turn left and proceed through the village of Gaunts Common. At the top of the hill, turn right towards Holtwood. Having passed the Methodist Chapel, turn left into Queens Copse. Take the next turning on the right into a private lane, and Foxgloves is the first property on the left.
