This charming late Victorian house was built in a row of artisan cottages with facing brick elevations under a tiled roof. Tastefully presented throughout and retaining a number of original features, the property has been sympathetically altered and extended to form a comfortable family home within walking distance of many local facilities including schools for all age groups, shops and bus services to Poole, Bournemouth and Wimborne.
68 Dunyeats Road offers deceptively spacious accommodation on 3 floors, with many character features, along with off road parking, a garage, and a pretty, south facing garden.
A front door (with fanlight above) leads to an enclosed entrance porch and reception hall with cloakroom, solid oak flooring and under stairs storage cupboard.
The charming sitting room has a Victorian open fireplace with built-in display shelving to the alcoves either side, a plaster cornice ceiling and an attractive bay window to the front. There is a separate family room with solid oak flooring and full height book shelves. The attractive, spacious kitchen/breakfast room features an extensive range of cream Shaker-style units, solid beechwood worktops, inset ceramic sink, Stoves range cooker (with gas hob and electric ovens,) integrated dishwasher and space for upright fridge/freezer. The utility room has a sink, plumbing for washing machine, coat hanging area and personal door to the garage. From the kitchen/breakfast room a pair of double glazed French doors leads out to the rear garden terrace, and a stable door leads to a garden room where there is a wall mounted gas central heating boiler, a pressurised hot water cylinder and a door to the garden.
Stairs lead to a split level landing. The lower landing gives access to the family bathroom and to the master bedroom which runs the full width of the house at the rear and has a delightful aspect onto the garden, and an en suite shower room. The main landing leads to two further double bedrooms, one of which has a Victorian fireplace and built-in cupboards. A door from the main landing leads to a staircase (with storage beneath) which leads to bedroom 4/studio (with sloping ceiling.)
Outside, a driveway provides parking for 2-3 vehicles and leads to an integral garage which has timber swing doors, lighting and power points. The south facing rear garden has a split level terrace with a brick retaining wall, a raised lawn bounded by a picket fence, a kitchen garden area (with raised beds,) an aluminium-framed greenhouse and a water tap.
