A little bit about Swallow Way

A well proportioned three bedroom bungalow within a quiet residential cul-de-sac.


Description

A detached 1960's bungalow that sits on an elevated plot towards the head of the cul-de-sac. Benefitting from three bedrooms, as well as a sizeable hallway, this home has scope to be extended (STPP) or simply refurbished. This, coupled with favourable school catchment qualification, makes the property ideal for families as well as retirees.

Gardens and Grounds

The front garden is laid to lawn and there is a tarmac driveway to the left hand side which in turn leads to the side of the home where an up and over style garage can be found. The rear garden is primarily laid to lawn and is enclosed by panel fencing.

Location

Colehill is a popular parish neighbouring Wimborne. The area has a regular bus service to Wimborne and also to the larger towns of Bournemouth and Poole. It is well served with sought-after primary and middle schools, post office and convenience store, pharmacy, hair salon, a church, memorial hall and community library. There are a few fine old houses in Colehill dating from the 1860s but in general rapid expansion took place in the last century which has resulted in a wide variety of properties to suit varying budgets. There is a close community feel in Colehill and the Parish Council have set up strong communication links via a regularly updated website and twice yearly newsletter to inform residents of the latest Parish initiatives being undertaken. Recreation facilities include the Forestry Commission Plantation at Cannon Hill which is widely used for walking and cycling and directly links to the larger areas of heathland at Holt and Whitesheet. A recreation ground at Oliver’s Park provides entertainment for families and children and there is a local nature reserve at Leigh Common. The Cricket Club incorporating Colehill Sports & Social Club is also a popular venue for many local residents.
