This is one of our Country Houses
Believed to have been built in the year 2000, Silverwood is a charming family house which has been designed with an eye to Georgian proportions. The house is approached over a long and sweeping gravel drive and set nicely within its garden and grounds, offers a distinct sense of privacy and seclusion.
All the principal rooms have high ceilings and large windows which combine to create a wonderful feeling of space. This is enhanced by the sensibly arranged accommodation which flows particularly well. The reception hall sits centrally and provides access to all main ground floor rooms. The staircase leads to a galleried landing which gives the reception hall an impressive double height ceiling. The drawing room is a bright room with French windows opening onto the garden. There is also a large inglenook style fireplace which is fitted with a wood burning stove. Double doors open from this room to the dining room which also has French windows to the garden. There is a large kitchen with a range of built in appliances along with a very useful larder. Opening from the kitchen is the breakfast room which also has French windows opening onto the pool terrace. Also on the ground floor is a sitting room and study as well as a utility room and cloakroom.
There are five bedrooms on the first floor which are all accessed off the beautiful galleried landing. The master bedroom has a south facing balcony overlooking the gardens as well as a dressing room and bathroom. There are four further bedrooms, two of which have en-suite facilities as well as a family bathroom.
The property is perfectly positioned to benefit from the convenient proximity of Wimborne, Bournemouth and Poole while retaining a distinct feeling of rural privacy. Canford School is under 1.5 miles distant and the beautiful town of Wimborne caters for most daily requirements. Bournemouth offers direct rail services to London Waterloo in under two hours as well as a wider range of shops and exceptional beaches. Bournemouth International airport offers an increasing number of flights to the continent. This part of Dorset combines the convenience of nearby urban centres with proximity to open countryside and coastline.
The house is approached through electric gates down a long gravel drive that winds past lawn gardens and the tennis court. There is ample parking adjacent to the house and two large garage blocks provide excellent storage for vehicles, mowers and garden equipment.
The grounds extend in a southerly direction to the rear of the house and are mainly laid to lawn with an area of woodland at the southern end of the property. The grounds are of approximately 4.87 acres and have a delightful park like feel with mature trees and shrubs at the boundaries and numerous specimen broad leaf and evergreen trees.
The property backs onto the Canford Heath nature reserve and there is a private gate that provides direct access to the 850 acres of protected heathland which is a haven for wildlife and provides a variety of delightful country walks and bike rides.
Immediately to the rear of the house is a large stone terrace that is accessible directly from the principal reception rooms. Adjoining this terrace is the impressive indoor swimming pool complex which features a large lantern style glazed roof bringing in an abundance of natural light while wide sliding doors open onto the terrace. Within, there is a heated pool measuring 9.85m long by 4.5m wide as well as a generous hot tub, changing room and shower room.
Adjacent to the house is a large garage block measuring approximately 10m x 6.46m with twin double up and over doors. There is also a further garage block measuring 8.29m x 6.42m which provides superb space for mowers and garden equipment as well as a w.c. and hand basin.
