STANDING ON A SUPERB SLIGHTLY ELEVATED SITE OF NEARLY ONE THIRD OF AN ACRE
The property enjoys a large frontage to Boundary Drive which is a popular cul-de-sac, on the fringe of Wimborne town centre, and tucked away from main roads and traffic noise.
Originally built in the 1960s, Athene has been completely refurbished and updated within the last 8 years, and has the added advantage of incorporating a 1 bedroom self-contained annexe suitable for home working, dependant relative or Airbnb.
Traditionally built, the property has elevations of cement boarding and coloured render, with a stone plinth under a modern concrete tiled roof benefiting from a mains gas heating system, and replacement UPVC double glazed windows.
THERE ARE SUPERB VIEWS TO THE REAR OF THE BUNGALOW OVER ADJACENT FARMLAND TOWARDS CRANBORNE CHASE
Athene is ideally situated for the town centre offering a wide range of amenities and recreational facilities including a Waitrose store, with local schools including Queen Elizabeth's at Pamphill and Dumpton Preparatory at Furzehill, both of which are within a short drive.
To the front of Athene, there is a large balcony which enjoys a superb, open outlook, with wrought iron balustrading leading to a covered entrance way (with a front door) leading into the reception hall (with useful storage and airing cupboards.)
The lounge has full height glass screens and a casement door leading out to the enclosed balcony, which has a fine open outlook. From the lounge, double doors open through to the separate dining room which enjoys open views, with a door leading through to the kitchen/breakfast room.
The modern Shaker style kitchen/breakfast room comprises an excellent range of working surfaces and units, breakfast bar, twin Zanussi ovens, 4-burner gas hob, extractor unit, space for fridge and freezer, quality flooring, and door to the hall and utility room. The utility room has a sink unit, base and wall cupboards, space for washing machine, and door to a rear porch which has access to the rear garden.
There are 3 large double bedrooms, en-suite bathroom/shower room comprising a corner bath, double shower, wash basin, and W.C, family bathroom, and a separate cloakroom.
THE SELF-CONTAINED ANNEXE
The annexe has a hallway (with storage cupboards,) sitting room overlooking the front driveway, kitchen with an excellent range of modern units comprising work tops, single oven, electric hob, extractor unit, space for washing machine, and space for a table and chairs, and a good sized double bedroom with an en-suite shower room.
Outside, a large tarmac driveway and parking area provides space for at least 6 vehicles leads to a detached double garage with 2 up-and-over doors (one being electric,) and power. Behind the garage there is a useful storage area.
Athene sits well back from the road, and enjoys a frontage to Boundary Drive of well over 100ft, with a low stone planted wall, large lawn interspersed with a wide variety of specimen trees and shrubs, and a rockery planted with heathers. To the left hand side of the driveway there is a further lawn area which is enclosed by a mixed hedgerow.
The gently sloping rear garden is enclosed by timber fencing, natural hedgerows, and 3 mature oak trees. The landscaped gardens are laid to lawn with paved terracing, a small goldfish pond, summerhouse, greenhouse, vegetable garden area with a picket fence, and a large, paved entertaining terrace.
