Originally built as a bungalow in 1967, the property has been in the same ownership since 1985 and since then the loft area has been converted into two bedrooms.
Park Homer Drive is a popular location, being tucked away from main roads and traffic, in a wooded dell, on the south side of Colehill. Local shopping facilities are available within Colehill and Wimborne itself provides an excellent range of amenities. The major east Dorset towns of Poole and Bournemouth are about a 20 minute drive away.
Traditionally built, the property has cement rendered and stone elevations, under a modern concrete tiled roof. Connected to all main services, the property has gas fired central heating and the quality larchhardwood double glazed windows are a feature.
In particular, the rear garden should be noted. The large south facing rear garden extends to well over 200’ with a winding concrete pathway leading to the bottom.
AGENTS NOTE: IN OUR OPINION, THERE IS GREAT POTENTIAL TO EXTEND THE EXISTING ACCOMMODATION, SUBJECT TO THE NECESSARY PLANNING CONSENT.
