A spacious, individual 4 bedroom, 3 reception room detached family house in a quiet residential area on the fringe of the Merley development, about 1.5 miles from Wimborne town centre.

It is connected to all mains services and has gas central heating and UPVC double glazing throughout. There is ample space for extension to the rear, subject to planning consent.

Merley offers local shops, a health practice, a church and a First School, and Wimborne has a wide range of amenities. Middle and Secondary Schools are available in Wimborne and Broadstone, and both boys' and girls' grammar schools are within easy reach. The coastal town of Poole, which has a mainline rail link to London Waterloo, is within about 20 minutes' drive.

A wide covered entrance way with down timbers and quarry tiled floor leads to a long entrance hall with under stairs storage space and cloakroom (with WC and wash basin.) Double doors lead to the living room which has a feature Aegean marble fireplace with inset gas fire, an attractive bay window to the front, a timbered ceiling, and a pair of glazed doors to a separate dining room with dado rail and double doors giving a superb view over the rear garden. There is also a study overlooking the front garden.

The kitchen/breakfast room has double doors to outside, excellent range of laminate work surfaces, framed units, concealed worktop lighting, Neff oven, 4-burner gas hob, extractor unit, dishwasher, peninsular unit with brick feature and wine rack, and space for table and chairs. There is a separate utility room with stainless steel sink, work surface, cupboards, space for white goods, and door to outside.

Stairs lead to a semi-galleried first floor landing with an airing cupboard. Bedroom 1 is a spacious room overlooking the rear garden with dado rail and en suite bathroom (with bath, wash basin and WC.)

Bedroom 2 is a large double room with a superb view over the rear garden, and bedrooms 3 and 4 are to the front. The family bathroom has corner bath with shower over, vanity unit with inset wash basin, and WC.

A long tarmac driveway and turning area provides space for at least 5 vehicles and leads to a large detached double garage with electric up-and-over door, UPVC personal door, lighting and power. There is a small covered terrace to the side of the garage.

The front garden is retained by a low brick wall and a mixed hedge, and has a raised lawn and a wealth of shrubs including camellias.

The delightful rear garden extends to nearly 100ft and is enclosed by substantial close boarded fencing with concrete posts. There is a large lawn interspersed with flowers, 2 paved terraces, an area of rough pasture, and a covered log store.


From Wimborne, proceed south along Poole Road, over Canford Bridge and up Oakley Hill. Just before The Willett Arms, turn left into Oakley Lane. Turn right into Oakley Straight and proceed to the end. At the T-junction, turn right, and the property is the penultimate property on the right.
