Originally built in 1956 as a bungalow, the property was extended in the 1980s to create 3 first floor bedrooms. It has been occupied by the present owners since 2000 and is presented in very good decorative order throughout. Traditionally built, with brick and rendered elevations, a wavy clad timber gable and a modern concrete tiled roof, the property is connected to all mains services and benefits from gas central heating and UPVC double glazed windows throughout. 39 Merley Park Road offers great potential for further extension, and we believe that planning permission can be gained to create a much larger first floor area by building over the garage, to take advantage of the outstanding view behind.
A feature of the property (apart from the aspect to the rear) is an impressive kitchen/dining room to the front. There is a long entrance hall (with oak front door and door to the garage,) a ground floor shower room, a utility room (with wall mounted boiler,) a sitting room (featuring a full height brick open fireplace with timber over and inset wood burning stove,) and double doors lead to a small conservatory (with access to the garden and an outstanding view over the adjacent farmland.) The ground floor also has a study (with Velux rooflight,) and the master bedroom, which has an attractive bay window overlooking the garden and farmland beyond. The spacious kitchen/dining room has oak work surfaces, framed base cupboards and drawers, and a range of appliances including double oven, hob and dishwasher. To the first floor, there are 3 bedrooms (2 of which have the benefit of a view over the farmland behind,) and a modern bathroom.
Outside, there is ample off road parking and a large attached garage/workshop. The garage could be converted into accommodation, if so desired. The front garden is enclosed by close boarded fencing and a beech hedge, and has a flat lawn with well stocked borders. The rear garden is enclosed by timber fencing and a low brick wall which backs directly onto open farmland. There is a large lawn, a decking area and a paved terrace with a pergola over.
Directions: From Wimborne, proceed south along Poole Road, over Canford Bridge up Oakley Hill. Continue past the Willett Arms to the roundabout. Take the first exit into Gravel Hill and turn first right into Merley Park Road. Number 39 is a few hundred yards along on the left hand side.
