Situated in Oakley Lane at Merley, very close to the River Stour and the renowned Canford School, about 1.5 miles from Wimborne town centre.
The cottage has a large frontage to Oakley Lane and has further scope to extend the property, subject to the necessary planning consent. The garden is a particular feature, being predominantly south and west facing. Originally built in 1885 with mellow bricks, stone mullions and window sills, under an ornate small plain tiled hipped roof. The property has a large two-storey extension to the rear of the property (completed 1991) creating a third bedroom and large kitchen/breakfast room. Connected to all mains services, the property has gas heating.
This is an excellent opportunity to purchase a delightful character home with a detached garage and large garden. The property is being offered for sale with NO FORWARD CHAIN.
