Tower Close - Chalbury - DRAFT PARTICULARS - NOT YET APPROVED. An older style 3 bedroom semi-detached family house with a 150ft rear garden and outstanding views over the adjacent farmland, in a quiet cul-de-sac in the picturesque hamlet of Chalbury. It is for sale with NO FORWARD CHAIN.

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.
