Calder is a very spacious 3 bedroom detached modern bungalow, situated in a popular non-estate location at the top of Colehill, approximately 2 miles from Wimborne town centre. SITUATED IN A DELIGHTFUL GARDEN THAT IS A FEATURE.
Originally built in 1965, the bungalow has been occupied by the same family for over 35 years and there is great potential to extend into the roof and to the rear of the property. In particular, there is a very large cut roof that would be suitable for a loft conversion or extension. Extending in all to about 1400 square feet of living space, Calder enjoys a large frontage to Pilford Heath Road of about 100’ and the entire site extends to about 0.25 of an acre.
The bungalow is set well back from Pilford Heath Road and has parking for numerous vehicles. The property is traditionally built with stone and rendered elevations with a shiplap gable, under a concrete tiled roof. Calder is connected to all mains services and has gas fired central heating and UPVC double glazed windows and doors.
A covered entrance way leads to a large ‘L’ shaped entrance hall with access to the roof space. The large living room has a feature brick fireplace with gas fire and two large picture windows overlook the front garden. Separate double aspect dining room with views over the rear garden. A large kitchen runs across the rear of the property and comprises the original oak units, sink unit, range of base cupboards and drawers, and matching wall cabinets including glass china cabinets. Range cooker, space for dishwasher, space for fridge/freezer and integrated washing machine. Boiler cupboard housing wall mounted gas boiler with an adjacent shelved cupboard. The kitchen has a fine outlook over the rear garden. A door leads to a large conservatory/garden room that was built about 10 years ago. The conservatory has a rendered plinth, high glass vaulted ceiling, large window panels and double casement doors lead to the terrace and outside. Bedroom One is a large double bedroom overlooking the rear garden with fitted cupboards. En suite bathroom with three piece suite, fully tiled walls and useful storage cupboard. Bedroom Two is a large double bedroom overlooking the front garden with full height wardrobe cupboards, matching dressing table and chest of drawers. Bedroom Three is a good size single bedroom overlooking the front garden with a double cupboard. The shower room has a large walk-in double shower with fixed glass screen and electric shower, and wash hand basin. Separate WC.
Outside, the property is approached from the highway by a long, sweeping tarmac driveway providing parking for numerous vehicles. Detached double/triple length garage with up-and-over door, lighting, power and personal door.
Calder is has the most impressive gardens with the majority of the garden lying to the front. The front garden faces west and is enclosed by close boarded fencing and a neat conifer hedgerow to the front. To the right hand side of the driveway, there is a raised lawn with a wealth of established shrubs including rhododendrons, azaleas, camellias, maple and roses. Wrought iron standard lamp. On the north side of the driveway, there is a paved pathway leading to lawn, flower beds and several established pine trees. Raised paved split level terrace. The garden has a high level of content and is impressive.
The rear garden has an easterly aspect and is enclosed by block walling and fencing. An arbour with stone steps lead down to a sunken lawn with raised stone stacked borders, again with a wide variety of shrubs, roses, camellias and azaleas. Two paved terraces. Two further lawns. Heather beds. Two water butts to the rear of the garage.
