Grange - Furzehill - PRICE GUIDE: £775,000-£800,000. An exceptional opportunity to purchase a SPACIOUS 5 BEDROOM DETACHED BUNGALOW STANDING ON A SUPERB, FLAT SITE OF ABOUT 2.4 ACRES, WITH SUBSTANTIAL OUTBUILDINGS, in Furzehill village, just one mile north of the market town of Wimborne Minster. NO FORWARD CHAIN.

Grange End is a spacious property comprising 5 bedrooms, 3 reception rooms, a kitchen/breakfast room and 2 bathrooms. Outbuildings include a double garage, a large games room/workshop/office and an old stable barn. There is ample parking for numerous vehicles.

Traditionally built in 1960, the bungalow has rendered elevations under a concrete tiled roof. It was extended in the 1970s and again, by the present owners, in 1986, when 2 first floor bedrooms and a store room were created. NOW IN NEED OF COMPLETE MODERNISATION AND REFURBISHMENT, Grange End offers ENORMOUS POTENTIAL FOR EXTENSION, SUBJECT TO PLANNING CONSENT. It will also appeal to purchasers looking to demolish the existing bungalow and build a brand new home, subject to planning permission.

The property enjoys a large frontage to Grange, a lane within the popular village of Furzehill, which offers a busy post office/shop and The Stocks Inn. DumptonPreparatory School is less than half a mile away, and schools for all age groups in Wimborne are easily accessible by car, as are many retail and leisure facilities.

The bungalow has mains drainage, electricity and water, oil heating and original aluminium double glazed windows.

The ground floor comprises an entrance vestibule, hallway, dining/family room with brick fireplace and doors leading to a conservatory overlooking the rear garden, sitting room with large picture window overlooking the side paddock to the west, inner hallway leading to the dual aspect master bedroom, and an adjacent bathroom. A large kitchen/breakfast room, with a range of built-in appliances, runs across the front of the property, and a second inner hall leads to the study, a bath/shower room, and 2 further double bedrooms.

From the study, stairs lead to the first floor landing, off of which is a large double bedroom (with rooflights overlooking the rear garden,) a large store room and another bedroom with a rooflight.

Grange End is approached via a 5-bar gate and a long driveway leading to the back of the site and the old stable barn (with attached single garage.) An adjacent concrete hardstanding provides parking for at least 4 vehicles. There is also a turning area and parking for several vehicles to the front of the bungalow.

The double garage and large games room/workshop/office to the rear extend in total to over 900 square feet.

The large, flat garden is mainly laid to grass and is enclosed largely by mixed hedgerows, offering almost complete privacy. Across the back of the property there is a large paved terrace with 2 raised planters, and a wealth of trees, shrubs and grasses. An arbour leads down to the rear garden area, which has copper beech, conifer and fruit trees. A 5-bar gates leads into the old stables area.
