Exceptional attention to detail and an innovative design have been employed in the refurbishment, producing deceptively spacious and adaptable accommodation with distinctive features including a large lantern rooflight to the living room, and bifold doors (with internal blinds) to the garden. The property also benefits from engineered oak floors, oak-faced interior doors, electrically-operated skylights to the first floor, double glazing and ‘living flame’ balanced flue gas fire.
Merley is a popular residential area with nearby shops, doctors’ surgery and FirstSchool, and local bus services connect to the market town of Wimborne Minster and the coastal resorts of Poole and Bournemouth, both of which have mainline rail links to London Waterloo.
Middle and senior state schools are available in Broadstone and Wimborne, and independent schools include Dumpton at Furzehill, Castle Court at Corfe Mullen and the renowned CanfordSchool, a short drive away in Canford Magna.
The spacious reception hall has a walk-in coat/storage cupboard and an additional under stairs cupboard. Double doors open through to a superb open plan kitchen/living room featuring a lantern rooflight, bifold doors (with internal blinds) to the rear garden terrace, provision for a large inset TV, and a contemporary style, ‘living flame’ gas fire.
The sitting and dining areas lead to a beautifully fitted kitchen with a range of high gloss units, quartz worktops, and integrated appliances including dishwasher, full height fridge and freezer, Bosch electric oven, combination microwave oven, Bosch induction boost hob and extractor hood, and wine chiller.
The separate utility room has 2 appliance spaces and plumbing, and a door to an enclosed rear porch.
There are two ground floor bedrooms, one of which has an en suite shower room and a walk-in wardrobe, and an additional bathroom with a Mira Jump electric shower over the bath.
The first floor offers 3 bedrooms. The spacious master bedroom has a walk-in dressing room and en suite shower room. Both the en suite shower room and the family bathroom have remote-controlled rain sensor skylights.
30 MerleyGardens benefits from an integral garage with Garador insulated up-and-over door, lighting and power points and double doors to the rear garden. A tarmacadam driveway provides off road parking for several cars, and is surrounded by lawns and flower beds. A paved footpath leads to the front door.
A side porch leads to the large, professionally landscaped rear garden which is nicely enclosed, affording a large degree of privacy. It has 2 limestone patios, one abutting the house and the rear garage doors, and one at the rear of the garden abutting an insulated log cabin, currently used as a home office/gym, with separate power, external and internal lighting, and broadband from the house.
Steps lead to a lawned area with well stocked flower borders and raised vegetable troughs.
