This attractive retirement village will consist of 32 stunning retirement bungalows, exclusive to the over 60s and conveniently located in the centre of historic Wimborne Minster, Dorset. All of the spacious bungalows will offer two double bedrooms, but this retirement development will also offer eight chalet style bungalows. These will have the additional benefit of a study. All McCarthy Stone retirement properties are designed to be a pleasure to live in, with high spec, high quality fixtures and fittings throughout.
The apartments will be centred around a lovely village green. Ideal for meetings, events and parties, the space is to be the beating heart of this retirement community. Just off the village green, you’ll find a wellness zone offering health and fitness studios, as well as a hair and beauty salon and a sociable communal lounge. There will be a bistro, so you’ll be able to meet your friends and family for a morning coffee or enjoy a long lingering lunch with a glass or two of wine. You’ll also find a pretty rural walking trail leading from the development.
Wimborne Minster is a picturesque and historic market town with Roman origins and an idyllic position on the banks of the rivers Stour and Allen. As well as the famous Minister Church with its many treasures, including a chained library, you can’t miss the unusual Wimborne Model Town and Gardens. An intricate miniature version of Wimborne in the 1950s, complete with flushing toilets, it’s a must see. Cyclists and strollers will enjoy meandering around the tranquil pathways, the pretty central square, the Willow Walk and along the wild-life rich riverbanks.

Do you offer Part Exchange?
Are your cottages and bungalows sold on a freehold or leasehold basis?
Our bungalow and cottage developments that are for sale are being sold on a freehold basis only as they are stand alone homes.
We are determined to provide positive resale values and to this end, we have changed dramatically since 2010 to make a big difference to our products and services. We have a dedicated resales team to deal with all future resales and to achieve the best prices, we also maintain an extensive database of prospects who are looking to buy our properties in the desirable areas we have located ourselves in over the past four decades.
