Athene is a very well presented, 3 double bedroom detached modern bungalow incorporating a SEPARATE SELF-CONTAINED 1 BEDROOM ANNEXE, situated in one of Colehill's most prestigious residential roads, adjacent to Colehill Cricket Ground, about half a mile walk from Wimborne town centre. STANDING ON A SUPERB SLIGHTLY ELEVATED SITE OF NEARLY ONE THIRD OF AN ACRE.

The property enjoys a large frontage to Boundary Drive which is a popular cul-de-sac, on the fringe of Wimborne town centre, and tucked away from main roads and traffic noise.

Originally built in the 1960s, Athene has been completely refurbished and updated within the last 8 years, and has the added advantage of incorporating a 1 bedroom self-contained annexe suitable for home working, dependant relative or Airbnb.

Traditionally built, the property has elevations of cement boarding and coloured render, with a stone plinth under a modern concrete tiled roof benefiting from a mains gas heating system, and replacement UPVC double glazed windows.

Athene is ideally situated for the town centre offering a wide range of amenities and recreational facilities including a Waitrose store, with local schools including Queen Elizabeth's at Pamphill and Dumpton Preparatory at Furzehill, both of which are within a short drive.

To the front of Athene, there is a large balcony which enjoys a superb, open outlook, with wrought iron balustrading leading to a covered entrance way (with a front door) leading into the reception hall (with useful storage and airing cupboards.)

The lounge has full height glass screens and a casement door leading out to the enclosed balcony, which has a fine open outlook. From the lounge, double doors open through to the separate dining room which enjoys open views, with a door leading through to the kitchen/breakfast room.

The modern Shaker style kitchen/breakfast room comprises an excellent range of working surfaces and units, breakfast bar, twin Zanussi ovens, 4-burner gas hob, extractor unit, space for fridge and freezer, quality flooring, and door to the hall and utility room. The utility room has a sink unit, base and wall cupboards, space for washing machine, and door to a rear porch which has access to the rear garden.

Outside, a large tarmac driveway and parking area provides space for at least 6 vehicles leads to a detached double garage with 2 up-and-over doors (one being electric,) and power. Behind the garage there is a useful storage area.

To the left hand side of the driveway there is a further lawn area which is enclosed by a mixed hedgerow.

The gently sloping rear garden is enclosed by timber fencing, natural hedgerows, and 3 mature oak trees.
