Built in 1903, and retaining many original character features, this imposing and tastefully presented family home is set back from Dunyeats Road along a private driveway. The beautiful gardens, which back directly onto BroadstoneCemetery, offer a large degree of privacy.
The property is ideally situated, with easy access to local shops in Broadstone, and to schools for all ages, including Poole and ParkstoneGrammar Schools, CorfeHillsComprehensiveSchool and the renowned CanfordSchool. The market town of Wimborne Minster is nearby, and the larger resort towns of Poole and Bournemouth, both of which have mainline railway stations to London Waterloo, are within about 20 minutes’ drive.
Connected to all mains services, Bon Accord features attractive sash and casement windows, and a gas central heating system, the boiler for which was replaced in 2016.
The ground floor boasts an attractive reception hall, 3 spacious receptions, a cloakroom and a well fitted kitchen/breakfast room (with granite work surfaces and double butler’s sink.) The dining room features an Aga range.
The 5 spacious bedrooms are arranged over the first and second floors, along with a cloakroom, an en suite bathroom and a large bath/shower room.
A long gravel driveway leads to a parking area and a large detached double garage which has a staircase leading to an office/studio above. The gardens are predominantly laid to lawn, with stone walling, crazy paved pathways, 2 greenhouses and a garden chalet. A wooded area provides an ideal play area for children, and privacy is created by established trees including oak and pine, and shrubs including rhododendrons, azaleas and camellias. There are raised vegetable beds and established apple, pear and plum trees.
Bon Accord will appeal to purchasers seeking an individual 5 bedroom home with character in a private and yet most convenient residential location.
