Guide price

Bedrooms: 3
A beautifully presented, older style 3/4 bedroom detached house with a delightful garden and a detached annexe ideal as a home studio or Airbnb, in the favoured Oakley Road, less than a mile from Wimborne town centre.

Traditionally built in 1954, with brick and colour washed rendered elevations under a roof of small tiles, the house has been occupied by the present owners since 1996 and, during that time, has been extended and tastefully refurbished. It is connected to all mains services, and has gas central heating, UPVC double glazed windows and cavity wall insulation.

Features include an attractive conservatory overlooking the rear garden, a superb principal bedroom with luxury en suite bathroom, a detached annexe comprising bed/sitting room and shower, and a delightful, well stocked, flat rear garden. The property will appeal to purchasers looking for an older style house in a popular residential road within walking distance of the town centre.

There is easy access to many amenities in Wimborne, and to the coastal towns of Poole and Bournemouth, both of which have mainline rail links to London Waterloo.

There is a square entrance hall with built-in coat cupboard, under stairs storage space, and space for a workstation/study area. The ground floor shower room has large corner shower, wash basin and WC.

The large, dual aspect living room features an open fireplace (with inset coal effect gas fire), and a pair of UPVC double glazed bifolding doors to the superb conservatory which has a brick plinth, UPVC double glazed windows, a high gabled tiled roof, and double glazed casement doors to outside.

The kitchen/breakfast room has modern work surfaces, ceramic sink, base and wall cupboards and drawers, fitted Hotpoint cooker (with 4-burner hob and electric ovens), extractor unit, built-in dishwasher, fitted water softener, fitted American style fridge-freezer, ceramic tiled floor, space for table and chairs, and door to outside.

From the hall, stairs lead to the first floor landing which has loft access. The superb principal bedroom overlooks the rear garden and has loft access and an impressive en suite bathroom (with free standing rolltop bath, twin basins on matching pedestals, WC, wall cabinet, towel radiator, and quality flooring.)

Bedroom 2 is a spacious double room overlooking the rear garden. Bedroom 3 is a single room with a built-in airing cupboard, and the family bathroom has modern bath, wash basin, WC, half tiled walls and towel radiator.

A large L-shaped tarmac driveway provides space for 2 or 3 vehicles and leads to an integral single garage (with electric roller door, wall mounted gas combination boiler, storage space and door to a separate utility room with sink unit, cupboards and space for white goods.)

The front garden is enclosed by a picket fence, and has a bonded gravel terrace with space for pots, well stocked borders, and a pergola with climbing roses.

Access at the side of the house leads to the rear garden which is an outstanding feature of the property, being flat, wide, and most attractively landscaped, with a large entertaining terrace, a bonded gravel area for pots, palm and conifer trees, space for table and chairs, water tap, 2 aluminium-framed greenhouses and a prefabricated shed/workshop. There is a large, flat lawn with paved stepping stones, a feature Indian bean tree, a timber potting shed, a vegetable garden area, a timber archway, a further shed, and 2 large, well stocked shrub beds including acers, roses, conifers and ferns

The annexe, which was formerly a garage, comprises a bed/sitting room with space for wardrobes, and an en suite shower room. It would be ideal for home working or Airbnb use.


From Wimborne, proceed south along Poole Road and over Canford Bridge. Take the second turning on the left into Oakley Road, and the property can be found on the right hand side.
