A little bit about Oakley Hill

A charming 1930's four bedroom family home with three receptions and two bathrooms, rear garden, garage and driveway.

Description

This substantial four bedroom family home offers the perfect choice for those looking for character accommodation. The home offers well proportioned rooms, plenty of parking and approximately 92ft rear garden ideal for children. The home has retained many original features, and has been sympathetically updated over the years. The main living room is bathed in light from the large bay window to the front, and has the added benefit of a wood burner. The kitchen has modern fitted units and working surfaces, tiled floor and splash backs and plumbing for a washing appliance. There is a five-ring gas hob, electric oven, integrated dishwasher and fridge/freezer. There is also a traditional larder, a further walk-in storage cupboard and door to rear garden. Upstairs the bedrooms are of good size with the three main rooms offering fitted cupboards. The family bathroom has both a separate shower cubicle and bath, wc and wash hand basin. There is also the potential to convert the loft to create further accommodation, for which planning has been granted. Within the last three years the owners have successfully added a substantial ground floor extension which spans the entire rear elevation and provides a contemporary twist to this character home. The area has been left open plan and boasts a triple bi-fold door and vaulted ceiling with three Velux windows. An airy walkway, again vaulted, denotes access to the garage as well as utility room and wet room.

The beautiful twin towers of the Minster provide an elegant backdrop to the town’s historic architecture and alongside The Priest’s House Museum & Gardens, Wimborne Model Town dating back over 50 years and the 1930’s Art Deco Tivoli theatre, combine to make Wimborne a popular tourist attraction.

There is a paved patio area along the rear of the property. A path then leads to an area of lawn with trellis and wisteria dividing the lawn in two. The rear lawn offers seclusion and a variety of fruit trees with a garden shed and greenhouse.
