Situated in a convenient location, Wimborne Minster is approximately 2 miles to the north offering an excellent range of facilities, whilst the coastal town of Poole is about 5 miles distant, with a mainline railway station to London Waterloo. Delph Woods and the Castleman Trailway are close by providing many scenic walks. There are excellent schools for all ages groups including both the Grammar Schools and Corfe Hills Comprehensive School.

A front door leads through to an entrance lobby, with a door to the main reception hall, off of which is a downstairs shower room (with low flush W.C., pedestal wash hand basin and shower cubicle,) and an understairs storage cupboard. The nicely proportioned living room features a brick decorative fireplace (with display shelving,) and glazed double doors open through to a separate dining room (with double glazed patio doors leading out to the garden.) There is a connecting door to a modern fitted kitchen with an excellent range of units incorporating a Philips gas hob, cooker hood, electric double oven, and Panosonic microwave. A large utility room has appliance space and plumbing for washing machine, dishwasher and tumble dryer. There is an integral boiler room housing a Baxi gas fired central heating boiler, and storage area. To the first floor, there is a galleried landing with access to loft space and a large walk-in airing cupboard. The main bedroom has fitted wardrobes, a dressing table, and a fully tiled en suite shower room, bedroom 2 also has fitted wardrobes, a dressing table, and a fully tiled en suite bathroom comprising panelled bath (with shower attachment and glazed screen,) pedestal wash hand basin and W.C., and 2 further bedrooms (one of which has a wash hand basin.) Outside, the property is approached off a shared entrance way with its own private driveway leading to an attached garage (with up-and-over door, lighting and power points, and personal side door,) and parking area for 4 vehicles. The front garden is principally laid to lawn and a side gate provides access to the rear garden. The rear garden is nicely enclosed with a paved patio, centre lawn, and a timber summerhouse with a veranda.
