Built in the 1950s, the property is now in need of complete modernisation, and offers great potential for improvement. There is great scope for extension, and the erection of a garage, subject to the necessary planning consents. The property benefits from an oil fired central heating system, UPVC double glazed windows, and a wide frontage to Tower Close.
Chalbury is situated between the larger villages of Gaunts Common and Horton, and about 5 miles north of the market town of Wimborne Minster which offers a wide range of amenities.
A covered entrance way leads to the entrance hall. The living room has a timber fireplace with an inset wood burning stove. There is a kitchen/breakfast room with pine units, worktops, a ceramic sink, and a superb view over the rear garden. A boiler room houses a modern oil fired boiler, and there is a ground floor bathroom with a bath and a wash basin. Off the rear porch there is a separate WC, and a stable door to outside. Bedroom 1 has a fine open outlook to the front, and a built-in wardrobe, and bedrooms 2 and 3 enjoy views over the rear garden and farmland beyond.
A wide gravelled driveway provides parking for numerous vehicles/boats/trailers/caravans etc. The front garden has trees, a lawn and a concrete pathway. The rear garden, which extends to about 150ft, is enclosed by close boarded timber and post-and-wire fencing, and has a large, flat lawn, a concrete terrace, a raised pond, a shed and a central heating oil tank.
Directions: From Wimborne, proceed north on the B3078 towards Cranborne and turn right into the village of Furzehill. Proceed past The Stocks Inn on the left and, after about a mile, turn left at Pig Oak into Petersham Lane, signposted to Gaunts Common. Proceed past St James First School on the right. At the crossroads, continue ahead. After the sharp S-bend, Tower Close can be found on the right hand side, almost opposite the left hand turning to Chalbury Hill.
