Formerly part of the Canford Estate of Lord and Lady Wimborne, this charming property has mellow brick elevations under a high, ridged, plain tiled roof and benefits from gas central heating. There is scope, subject to planning consent, to extend to the side or rear. The market town of Wimborne Minster, which offers a wide range of amenities, is about 1.5 miles away, and there are local shops, a doctors' surgery, a church and a First School in nearby Merley. There is easy access by road to the coastal towns of Poole and Bournemouth.
An arched front door opens into a reception hall with an under stairs cupboard. The sitting room has a shelved alcove, and the living room has a tiled fireplace and a built-in cupboard. There is a kitchen with a stainless steel sink, cupboards and appliance space, and a rear lobby with access to a loft storage space, a door to the rear garden, and a cupboard housing the gas boiler. There is a ground floor bathroom. The first floor landing has a vaulted ceiling with an exposed timber. Bedrooms 1 and 2 have cast iron Victorian style fireplaces.
A pair of 5-bar gates open onto a gravel driveway which provides ample off road parking and space (subject to planning consent) to build a garage. The nicely enclosed, private gardens extend to 3 sides of the house and feature a large expanse of lawn interspersed with established apple trees and wide shrub borders.
Directions: From Wimborne, proceed south along Poole Road, over Canford Bridge and up Oakley Hill. Just before the Willett Arms, turn left into Oakley Lane. Number 8 can be found on the right hand side.
