Chalbury Hill is a small hamlet about a 10 minutes' drive from the town of Wimborne Minster, tucked well away from main roads and traffic noise. Few homes become available in Chalbury Hill and it is considered to be one of the most desirable locations within the area.

Little Glebe is accessible by a long, private driveway leading to a large detached double garage. Originally built in 1971, and occupied by the present owners for over 25 years. The house extends in total to just over 1800 square feet of living accommodation.

THE HOUSE HAS GREAT POTENTIAL TO EXTEND THE EXISTING ACCOMMODATION (subject to the necessary planning consents,) AND WOULD NOW BENEFIT FROM A PROGRAMME OF UPDATING, REFURBISHMENT AND MODERNISATION. IN OUR VIEW, A PURCHASER MAY DECIDE TO DEMOLISH THE EXISTING BUILDING AND BUILD A BRAND NEW HOME (subject to the necessary planning consents.)

Traditionally built having brick and rendered elevations under a modern concrete tiled roof. The property is connected to mains electricity and water. Private drainage system. There is no mains gas available.
