Gussage All Saints, Wimborne, Dorset


Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 4
A substantial 3/4 bedroom detached bungalow with an indoor swimming pool, standing in a large garden plot with outstanding rural views, in the heart of a popular Dorset village on the edge of the Cranborne Chase.

Built in the 1960s, and extended and altered to provide over 3,000ft of well proportioned accommodation, the property would now benefit from refurbishment, and offers great scope for improvement. It is for sale with NO FORWARD CHAIN and benefits from oil fired central heating, UPVC double glazing, a long driveway providing ample off road parking, and double garaging.

Set back from the village road, in an elevated position which maximises the impressive views over the surrounding countryside, the bungalow is adjacent to the Drovers Inn, in the heart of the picturesque village of Gussage All Saints which has a parish church, a village hall, a social club, and access to outstanding walks across Cranborne Chase.

There is good road access to the market towns of Wimborne Minster, Blandford Forum and Ringwood, and the city of Salisbury, which has a mainline rail link to London Waterloo.

A front door leads to a study/bedroom 4 which has an excellent range of fitted shelves, and a large walk-in store room which could be converted into an en suite. A lobby with a cloakroom (housing the pool pump and filtration unit) gives access to both the pool room and the large, L-shaped, dual aspect living/dining room which features display shelving, a fireplace, and double glazed patio doors to the rear garden terrace.

A spacious central lobby (with a built-in cupboard) leads to the kitchen/breakfast room which has fitted units and worktops, space for a table and chairs, and attractive views to the front. Adjacent is an additional family room.

A hallway (with a skylight) has doors to the front and to the garaging, and leads to a utility room with a Grant oil fired central heating boiler, space and plumbing for washing machine, sink, and door to the rear.

The central lobby also gives access to a wet room (with WC, wash basin, shower, and large airing cupboard housing the hot water tank.)

A long hallway opens onto a large home office area and gives access to the bedrooms. Bedroom 1 is a large double with fitted wardrobes and an en suite shower room. Bedrooms 2 and 3 are spacious doubles with built-in wardrobes, and bedroom 2 has an en suite bathroom (with additional access from the hall.)

The pool room has 3 sets of double glazed patio doors looking onto the rear garden. The pool has steps, a depth of approximately 4ft, a resistance current, floodlighting, a tiled surround and a seating area.

The attached double garage has 2 up-and-over doors, lighting and power points, and one of the garages has a further up-and-over door providing access through to the rear for additional parking.

The bungalow is set back from the road off a long driveway with a large parking area. Its elevated position offers stunning rural views from the front garden, which is predominantly lawned with large shrub beds.

Access at the side leads to the private rear garden where there is a paved and gravelled courtyard area with a water feature. Steps lead to a large raised lawn arranged as a wildflower meadow and surrounded by established trees and shrubs. Behind the garaging there are outbuildings including an integral garden store and timber sheds.


From Wimborne, proceed north of the B3078 towards Cranborne. At the Horton Inn, turn left and proceed over the bridge, around the sharp bends and up the hill. Turn right, signposted to Gussage All Saints and proceed down the hill and over a small bridge. Take the first turning on the left, into the village, and the property can be found on the right hand side, just before The Drovers Inn.
