Central Avenue - Corfe Mullen - An impressive double-fronted, 3 storey, 5 bedroom detached 1920s home, offered for sale with NO FORWARD CHAIN, with a rear garden extending to over 100ft in length, set in one of Corfe Mullen's premier roads, about 2 miles from Wimborne town centre.

Built around 1925 by Colonel George, a well known local builder of the time, the Tangles retains many original features including 2 working fireplaces, 4 attractive bay windows, dado panelling and rails, picture rails, pine floorboards, original doors and skirtings, and a serving hatch between the dining and sitting rooms. Connected to all mains services, the property has gas central heating (with a combination boiler) and UPVC double glazed windows.

The house boasts 4 reception rooms as well as a superb kitchen/breakfast room. Occupied by our clients for over 11 years, and The Tangles has been particularly well maintained.

Local shops and schools are close by in Corfe Mullen village and Broadstone, and there is easy access to Wimborne, which offers a comprehensive range of amenities. The larger coastal towns of Poole and Bournemouth, both of which have mainline rail links to London Waterloo, are also within easy driving distance.

A gabled entrance porch, with a quarry tiled floor and a leaded window, leads to a long entrance hallway with wide pine floorboards, off of which there is a cloakroom and a downstairs storage room. The attractive lounge has a bay window and a cast iron and tiled fireplace with pine surround, mantel, mirror and inset gas fire. A door leads to the music room, which also has a bay window to the side. The sitting room has a bay window overlooking the front garden, a brick and pine fireplace with inset gas fire, and a sliding hatch to the dining room.
