Uddens Drive - Stapehill - A most unusual, older style 3 bedroom, 2 reception room linked detached house set in grounds of about a third of an acre in an unusual, unspoilt semi-rural location, tucked away from main roads and traffic noise off a private lane in Stapehill, but only 3 miles from Wimborne town centre. NO FORWARD CHAIN.

Pinewood has a delightful outlook over the adjacent fields and is close to the walks and bridleways of Cannon Hill Plantation and Uddens Forest. It was built by the current owner's family in the 1920s, and has never been on the market. Traditionally constructed, with pebbledash-rendered elevations under a concrete tiled roof, the property is connected to mains electricity and (metered) water, with septic tank drainage. There is no gas supply. The house would benefit from a programme of modernisation and refurbishment, but offers great potential for extension, subject to planning permission.

The property comprises an enclosed porch, entrance hallway, sitting room with tiled fireplace, dining room, kitchen with work surfaces, base and wall cupboards and floor mounted oil fired boiler, and rear lobby with utility area and cloakroom. The first floor has 3 spacious bedrooms and a shower room with a double shower cubicle. The master bedroom has stunning views over the garden and surrounding farmland. There is an attached single garage off a long driveway enclosed by post-and-rail fencing. A 5-bar gate leads into a courtyard with space for several vehicles, and there is a large, flat lawn interspersed with trees including pine, willow and apple, along with bamboo, pampas and a
large timber shed. The vast majority of the gardens lie to the front of the house and are south facing.

Directions: From Canford Bottom gyratory, proceed along Wimborne Road West towards Ferndown. At The Old Thatch pub, turn left into Uddens Drive, and take the second turning on the left. Pinewood can be found immediately on the right hand side.
