100 Merley Lane stands in a slightly elevated position, almost opposite the local shops and doctors' surgery, with bus services and Merley First School nearby. Wimborne Minster, about 1.5 miles to the north, offers an excellent range of amenities, whilst the coastal towns of Poole and Bournemouth, both of which have mainline rail links to London Waterloo, are both within easy driving distance.

The property now provides 6 bedrooms in total, and is need of some refurbishment, but offers potential (subject to planning consent) for division into a pair of semi-detached house. Benefits include gas central heating and double glazed windows. A covered entrance way leads to the main reception hall, off of which there is a cloakroom. There is a dining room, a living room (with double glazed patio door to the garden,) a large, panelled study (with fitted wall units), a kitchen/breakfast room with oak-faced units, and a rear lobby. The first floor comprises a galleried landing, 3 double bedrooms and a family bath/shower room. An independent door leads to the self-contained annexe, which comprises, on the ground floor, an entrance hall, a living room (with French doors to the rear garden), a kitchen/breakfast room (with oak-faced units), a shower room and a bedroom. On the first floor there are 2 further double bedrooms, a family bath/shower room and a hallway connecting to the main house.

The property is set well back from Merley Lane, and the driveway has a turning area which leads to an integral double garage. There is access on both sides of the house to the large rear garden which is now overgrown and in need of landscaping.
