About this property

  • A spacious detached family house, built as The Vicarage to St Mary's Church in the 1940's/ 1950's, having elevations of brick with a tile hung mansard under a tiled roof. The accommodation is spacious with oil fired central heating and UPVC double glazed Georgian style windows. It is fair to say that the house would benefit from some modernisation and refurbishment, yet offers huge potential for a buyer to improve to their own specification.

    An entrance hall gives access to the study and cloakroom. A half glazed wood front door leads into the inner hall with shower room. The sitting room has a brick fireplace and casement doors to the garden, and there is a separate dining room. The L shaped study has doors to the hall and entrance vestibule. The kitchen/ breakfast room has a range of units, linen cupboard and door to the utility room, with sink and plumbing for a washing machine, and door to the driveway. Leading off is a boiler/ store room housing the oil fired boiler, and there is a door to the garage.

    Stairs lead up to the first floor landing. There are four double bedrooms, two with basins, a family bathroom with bath and basin, and a separate WC with basin.

    A tarmac driveway leads along the side and around to the rear of the house to a parking and turning area and to the single garage. The front garden is laid to lawn with a hedge along the boundary, and the rear garden includes a number of fruit trees.

    We are offering the house and garden for sale together with the adjoining Glebe Paddock, which wraps around the house in an L shape. This paddock has a frontage and pedestrian access to the village lane, adjoins the churchyard to the side, and farmland to the rear. The paddock is approximately 1.7 acres, and the total area of the house, garden and paddock is approximately two acres.

I think this is such a great location, quiet and hidden away and yet just a short drive from Wareham and Poole
