A beautifully presented, 4 bedroom detached chalet style bungalow situated ON A LARGE GARDEN PLOT, on the edge of the village of Gaunts Common, WITH SOME OUTSTANDING VIEWS OVER OPEN FARMLAND TO THE REAR. The property is offered for sale with NO FORWARD CHAIN.

Gaunts Common is a popular rural village, about 4.5 miles to the north of Wimborne town centre, and close to the neighbouring villages of Holt and Horton.

Originally built in about 1960, Meadow Croft was substantially extended in 2005 to create additional accommodation, but there is also the opportunity (subject to the necessary planning consents) to extend further. Traditionally built with rendered elevations under a tiled roof, the property is connected to mains electricity, water and drainage. There is no gas supply available. Meadow Croft benefits from an oil fired central heating system (boiler was replaced in 2016,) and UPVC double glazed windows throughout.

An integral entrance porch with a front door leads through to the main reception hall (with under stairs recess and cloaks cupboard.) The sitting room features a log burning stove (installed approx. 3 years ago,) and a casement door leads out to the rear garden. The dual aspect kitchen/breakfast room has an excellent range of Shaker style kitchen units comprising plumbing and appliance space for washing machine and dishwasher, slot-in cooker space, space for upright fridge/freezer, oil fired central heating boiler, and a door to the side entrance. Also, on the ground floor there is a dining room/bedroom 4, bedroom 3, and a modern family bathroom/shower room comprising a white suite, shower cubicle, panelled bath, pedestal wash hand basin, low level W.C., and a ceramic tiled floor. From the reception hall, stairs lead to the first floor landing with eaves storage cupboard and an airing cupboard. There are 2 bedrooms, and an en-suite shower room to bedroom 1 which has dual aspect windows.

Outside, there is a tandem length double garage with an up-and-over door. Meadow Croft is set back from the road, with an established mixed hedgerow, and a gravelled driveway provides ample parking for numerous vehicles.
