Rare Opportunity to Acquire a Handsome, Detached Property in Central Wimborne. Stoneleigh House which is believed to date from the 1860s is a handsome property which provided a fine private dwelling up to the 1970s. At that time our clients acquired and converted the property to provide a well-regarded care home which has remained in the same family's ownership ever since prior to closing earlier this year. In addition to offering 10 letting rooms (most having ensuite facilities) the property also features owner's accommodation. The property falls within a generous and regular shaped plot extending to approximately 0.26 acres (0.11 hectares) featuring mature gardens and good parking provision. In addition to the main Stoneleigh House building, the site also includes a former Coach House. This is a detached outbuilding which is currently used for storage and the plot measures approximately 0.19 acres (0.077 ha). Stoneleigh House can be seen edged pink while the Coach House can be seen edged blue in the aerial photograph on page 6. Both properties have the benefit of separate planning consents as detailed below. Full details are held in a data room, access details for which are available from the agents. Stoneleigh House is available by itself (without the Coach House). The Coach House will be retained by our clients and converted for their own use. Alternatively, our clients are willing to sell the Coach House in addition to Stoneleigh House at an additional sum of £400,000. The property is considered eminently suitable for a variety of alternative uses subject to the purchaser obtaining any necessary statutory consents. Such uses might include boutique hotel, offices, educational, medical or leisure orientated uses. Location The attractive and historic East Dorset market town of Wimborne Minster is situated approximately 5 miles north of Poole and 10 miles north west of Bournemouth.

Opportunity Stoneleigh House is available by itself (without the Coach House). The Coach House will be retained by our clients and converted for their own use. Stoneleigh House can be seen edged pink in the aerial photo below. Alternatively, our clients are willing to sell the Coach House in addition to Stoneleigh House at an additional sum of £400,000 (edged blue below).
