A little bit about Park Homer Drive
A detached three bedroom, chalet bungalow in an extensive plot with scope to develop (STPP).
Park Homer Drive is amongst one of the most desirable roads within Colehill and offers a tranquil residential cul-de-sac environment. This particular home is situated on the southerly edge, with the rear garden falling away giving long-reaching views towards Canford Heath and Southbourne. The home boasts superb potential to extend (STPP) with a straight-forward loft conversion to provide 4/5 bedrooms, or a split level design without jeopardising the garden. The accommodation currently offers three bedrooms supported by a family bathroom and en-suite, living room, study, utility room and a central kitchen which has been well thought out and embraces the elevated position overlooking the rear garden. The breakfast area provides an ideal platform to not only enjoy the view, but also the wildlife within the garden, with folding doors opening on to a private, secluded, glazed-roof patio. The master bedroom capitalises on this aspect occupying the entire first floor, boasting a feature circular window as well as a dressing room and en-suite facility.
Colehill is a popular parish neighbouring Wimborne. The area has a bus service to Wimborne and also to the larger towns of Bournemouth and Poole. It is well served with sought-after primary and middle schools, post office and convenience stores, pharmacy, hair salon, a church, memorial hall and community library. There are a few fine old houses in Colehill dating from the 1860s but in general rapid expansion took place in the last century which has resulted in a wide variety of properties to suit varying budgets. There is a close community feel in Colehill and the Parish Council have set up strong communication links via a regularly updated website and twice yearly newsletter to inform residents of the latest Parish initiatives being undertaken. Recreation facilities include the Forestry Commission Plantation at Cannon Hill which is widely used for walking and cycling and directly links to the larger areas of heathland at Holt and Whitesheet. A recreation ground at local 'Oliver’s Park' provides entertainment for families and children and there is a local nature reserve at Leigh Common. The Cricket Club, incorporating Colehill Sports & Social Club, is also a popular venue for many local residents.
