Wimborne Minster has been inhabited for centuries and evidence of its previous inhabitants can still be seen today in the local architecture. The market town has one of the most prominent collections of 15th and 16th-century architecture across the whole of Dorset. Local planning restrictions are in place to ensure the preservation of these buildings. However, the most notable local building is Wimborne Minister Church, a Saxon-built church with iconic gothic architecture. The church houses the graves of some important people in history, including Alfred the Great’s brother, King Ethelred, and the maternal grandparents of Henry VII. Some recent town traditions include a folk festival which began in 1980, and a record for the longest firework display in Dorset on bonfire night since 2014.
Wimborne Minster and surrounding locations offer a beautiful range of properties for sale. The local market is made up of characterful properties that have been persevered for decades if not centuries, including period homes and cottages and a variety of modern properties that have been built since WW2 with much development continuing today. Due to the abundance of period homes in the area – including Tudor, Stuart, Victorian and Georgian properties – the market has various options for people wanting more space. Properties in the surrounding area are big on character and big in size, often providing ample outdoor space with at least half an acre. Some of these most sought-after properties in Wimborne can be found on Greenhill Lane, Arrowsmith Road and Rowlands Hill.
Wimborne properties attract a wide variety of buyers, including young professionals and families who work in nearby Bournemouth, Poole and Southampton which are all a relatively easy commute away.
