  • Bedrooms: 5
Hilly Close is a most impressive, 5 bedroom detached older style chalet bungalow situated just outside the village of Holt at Pond Head, a small hamlet about 5 miles to the north of Wimborne town centre. Set well back from the village road, the property has a delightful, SOUTH-WEST FACING GARDEN of nearly 0.4 of an acre and a LARGE DETACHED ANNEXE/STUDIO in the rear garden comprising a large living room, a shower room and a double bedroom, and would be ideal for Airbnb/home working/offices or dependent relative living.

Hilly Close was originally built as a bungalow in the 1940s and substantially extended in more recent years. The majority of the living space is on the ground floor, with only the main bedroom suite and dressing room on the first floor.

Traditionally built, Hilly Close and the annexe have colour washed elevations, under a tiled roof, and connected to mains electricity and water, with private drainage. There is no gas supply available. Hilly Close has oil fired central heating, UPVC double glazed windows, cavity wall insulation and a pressurised hot water system.

Of particular note, there is a large kitchen/breakfast room, a superb conservatory (to the rear), and the annexe. The gardens are also an outstanding feature offering almost complete privacy.

Local shopping facilities are available in the nearby village of Furzehill, while the town centre of Wimborne offers a comprehensive range of amenities. The major coastal towns of Poole and Bournemouth are about 30 minutes' drive by car, both of which have mainline railway stations to London Waterloo.

A reception hallway with oak flooring leads to a bathroom (with corner bath, bidet, basin and WC) and 2 double bedrooms. Double doors lead to an inner hallway and a sitting room with oak flooring, a feature brick fireplace with inset multifuel stove, and double doors to a large conservatory (with large window panels, a high vaulted glass ceiling, and casement doors to an entertaining terrace).

The well presented kitchen/breakfast room has a delightful outlook over the garden and features granite surfaces, a comprehensive range of units including full height food storage cupboards and retractable larders, space for an American style fridge-freezer, integrated dishwasher, washing machine and tumble dryer, Cannon range cooker (with 6-burner hob, grill and 2 ovens), extractor hood and granite backdrop.

Bedroom 2 overlooks the driveway and has a well presented en suite shower room. Bedroom 3, which is currently used as a study, has an aspect over the rear garden.

From the inner hallway, stairs lead to the first floor landing which has oak flooring. Bedroom 1 is a spacious double room with a superb view of the garden. A walkway leads to a dressing room with mirrored wardrobes and a feature en suite bath/shower room with twin-ended bath and double shower. An adjoining room has a basin, WC and bidet.

The front garden is enclosed by post-and-rail fencing. A 5-bar gate leads to a gravel driveway with excellent parking for boats/trailers/horseboxes. There are 2 lawned areas, and various shrubs.

The detached double garage is presently used as an office and store rooms, with timber windows replacing the up-and-over doors. These could be reinstated.

The rear garden is an outstanding feature, offering privacy and a southerly aspect. It is enclosed by close boarded fencing, walling and a mixed tree line, and there is a large, undulating lawn interspersed with a wide range of shrubs including camellias, rhododendrons and roses, and trees including apple, oak and chestnut. There is a large, L-shaped entertaining terrace with barbecue area.

The spacious detached annexe comprises living room, bedroom and shower room.
