Lonnen Road, Wimborne, Dorset

Guide price

Bedrooms: 4
A 4 bedroom detached bungalow standing on a large, private garden plot approaching a third of an acre, with ample off road parking and a triple-length garage, in this quiet, semi-rural location, within walking distance of a Co-op/Post Office, First and Middle Schools, a library and bus services.

Built in 1949 at the junction of Lonnen Road and Little Lonnen, and owned by our client for 53 years, the property offers great scope for improvement and extension, subject to planning consent. Wimborne Minster, approximately 2 miles away, provides a wide range of amenities, and the coastal towns of Poole and Bournemouth, both of which have mainline rail links to London Waterloo, are both within easy driving distance. The bungalow is connected to all mains services, and has gas central heating and replacement UPVC double glazing.

A conservatory (with a paved floor) and a front door lead to an L-shaped reception hall with loft access (via retractable ladder) and a large, walk-in airing cupboard housing a Worcester gas central heating boiler. There is a sitting room with exposed floorboards, a stone open fireplace, and glazed doors to a separate dining room with parquet flooring and a serving hatch to the kitchen. Wide steps lead down to a dual aspect lower lounge with picture windows overlooking the garden. The kitchen is fitted with units and worktops and has space for cooker, washing machine and fridge. There is a walk-in pantry and a UPVC double glazed door to an enclosed rear courtyard. Bedroom 1 has a wash basin and an attractive square bay window. Bedroom 2 looks onto the gardens, and there are 2 further bedrooms, one of which could be used as a study. The bathroom comprises wash basin, WC and bath (with wall mounted electric shower.)

A driveway provides ample off road parking and leads to the triple length garage (with double doors, lighting and power points.) The rear section of the garage has a perspex roof and a side door. The bungalow sits centrally on the plot, surrounded by gardens. An established mixed hedge screens the property from the road. The gardens are predominantly lawned, with a selection of shrubs, 2 greenhouses and a garden store. A private courtyard area between the kitchen and the garage provides an outdoor seating area and is planted with a wealth of spring bulbs. There is a side gate access. The gardens are neatly maintained, enjoy a south westerly aspect, and amount to over 0.27 of an acre.

From Wimborne, proceed up Rowlands Hill and along Wimborne Road to the staggered crossroads opposite the Co-op/Post Office. Proceed across into Lonnen Road, and the property can be found on the left hand side, just beyond the turning to Little Lonnen.
