The elegant 'Moorings', situated on the outskirts of Wimborne is an elegant gem dating from the Edwardian era. It's for sale by auction on 24 September.
Situated in a quiet residential area towards the outskirts of Wimborne Minster, Moorings shouts elegance before you even enter the driveway. Built in 1904 by a sea captain, the house typifies property of this Edwardian era. It’s substantial, it’s spacious, it’s light and it stands within large and private grounds.
The imposing 7-8 bedroom house extends to 5414 sq ft, and retains many original features including flooring, archways, fireplaces, stained glass windows and a decorative timber staircase. The accommodation spans three floors (there’s a lift) – even including a snooker room with full size table on the second floor.
The 3 bedroom chauffeurs cottage adjoins the garage, which has an inspection pit and workshop, while the gardens surrounding the property extend to just under an acre of mature and private gardens with a swimming pool and former croquet lawn, all approached via a large drive with ample parking.
The historic town of Wimborne with its beautiful Minster and amenities are within walking distance, whilst Poole Harbour, the Jurassic Coast, Poole and Bournemouth are within a short drive.
Moorings now requires some modernisation and improvement, but gives purchasers the rare chance to put their own ‘mark’ on this historic house. It is for sale by auction on 24 September with a Guide of £1,650,000.
