Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 2
A modern 2 double bedroom detached bungalow in need of modernisation, with a private, WESTERLY FACING REAR GARDEN, in a quiet residential road, for sale with NO FORWARD CHAIN.

The spacious accommodation has scope for further improvement and benefits from gas central heating (the boiler for which was replaced in 2018). The majority of the windows have been replaced with UPVC double glazing. Merley is a popular residential area with shops, a doctors' surgery and a First School. Bus services run to the market town of Wimborne Minster, about 1.5 miles away, which offers excellent facilities, and the thriving port of Poole, about 4 miles away, which has a mainline rail link to London Waterloo.

There is a large, square reception hall (with airing cupboard, coat cupboard, and access, via a retractable ladder, to the loft space). The L-shaped living/dining room has a fireplace and a UPVC double glazed patio door to the rear garden. The kitchen has units, worktops, appliance space, wall mounted Worcester gas central heating boiler, larder cupboard (with space and plumbing for washing machine), and a UPVC double glazed door to the side. There are 2 double bedrooms (one of which has fitted wardrobes), a bathroom (with bath and wash basin), and a separate WC.

A driveway provides ample off road parking and leads to an attached garage (with up-and-over door, lighting, power points and rear door to the garden). The open plan front garden is laid to lawn, with a selection of established shrubs, and a side access leads to the rear garden where there is a paved patio, a lawn, flower and shrub borders, and an ornamental fishpond.


From Wimborne, proceed south along Poole Road, over Canford Bridge and up Oakley Hill. Just before the Willett Arms, turn left into Oakley Lane, and take the first right into Oakley Straight. At the T-junction, turn left into Merley Lane, and take the first right into Merley Gardens. Layard Drive is the fourth turning on the left hand side.
