Our clients are only the third owners since the property was built in 1971. In 2016 a refurbishment programme was completed, in which Oaklee was substantially extended and modernised to a high standard. The house is traditionally constructed, with stone and rendered elevations, 2 feature dormers and a concrete tiled roof. It is connected to all mains services and has gas central heating and double glazing.
This attractive family home stands on an impressive garden site extending to 0.3 of an acre enjoying a large frontage to Boundary Drive, with attractive views across Cranborne Chase towards Shaftesbury. The contemporary style interior embraces easy living with many outstanding features.
The market town of Wimborne Minster provides a wide range of amenities, and Boundary Drive is convenient for local schools including Dumpton Preparatory. There is good road access to the New Forest, the Jurassic Coast, the A31 and M27, and the larger towns of Poole and Bournemouth, both of which have mainline rail links to London Waterloo.
A covered entrance way with stone steps leads to a large entrance hallway with under stairs storage space and coat cupboard (with sliding doors). There is also a cloakroom.
