It has been over-developed and looks like it tries too hard. But at its heart, this is a 1960s split-level property, going by the name of The Palms in Colehill, Wimborne, Dorset.
The Palms is apparently named after the mature palm trees in the water garden and was originally built in 1969, offering plenty of light and plenty of space. if open-plan living is your thing, it should be of interest.
For your money, you get a reception hall, large multi-level sitting room with study opening out on to a terrace with south facing views, a kitchen/breakfast room and a dining/family room which overlooks that water garden. There are also four bedrooms and two bathrooms including the master suite which has a large adjacent bathroom and a south facing balcony.
On the lower ground floor is a guest suite with separate access and as you might have noticed, there’s a lot of garden, with plants, decked pathways, terraces…and a heated swimming pool. Oh yes, there’s also a summer house with sauna, sitting room, shower and cloakroom. Nice.
As we said, a little over-developed for some, leaving a house lacking proper character inside. But if you want something ‘finished’ and with a few touches of ‘wow’, this could be for you. £835,000 is the asking price.
