Upper Golf Links Road - Broadstone - A stunning 5 bedroom detached house on a private, west facing plot of almost half an acre, in Broadstone’s premier residential road, with SUPERB VIEWS OVER THE GOLF COURSE. Built in the 1960s, Oakridge has been extended and comprehensively upgraded to a particularly high standard of specification by the present owners in the last 6 years. NO EXPENSE HAS BEEN SPARED IN CREATING AN OUTSTANDING, MODERN FAMILY HOME.

The innumerable features include a superb kitchen//family room with bifold and casement doors to a large entertaining terrace, an immaculate drawing room and a stunning orangery and gym (built in 2017) with a secondary staircase to a fifth bedroom and en suite shower room. Oakridge also boasts 4 spacious double bedrooms, 3 further en suite bathrooms and a family bathroom, double garaging and off road parking for 8 vehicles.

Broadstone provides an extensive range of shops and restaurants, and amenities including the 18-hole golf course, a leisure centre, and the popular CorfeHillsSchool. The larger coastal town of Poole, about 3 miles to the south, has a mainline rail link to London Waterloo.

A Travertine tiled entrance and oak double doors lead to a spacious reception hall with wide oak floorboards, and a large cloakroom. Further double doors lead to the drawing room, which has an open fire and access to the garden. There is a spacious study to the front.

The impressive, Travertine tiled kitchen/family room has full height aluminium bifold doors to the terrace, 2 pairs of casement doors to outside, and recessed LED lighting. There is an excellent range of Neptune units (with cup handles) and polished granite work surfaces, a large island with butler’s sink and 2 retractable larders, an electric total control Aga (optional extra) with oak mantel over, additional convection oven, extractor, larder fridge, drawer freezer and dishwasher. A separate utility room features a good range of cupboards, oak work surfaces, integrated fridge and drawer freezer, a door to outside and a boiler room.

A walkway leads to an area currently used as a gym but suitable as a separate dining room, from which there is access to a magnificent, Travertine tiled orangery with full height glass screens and a high vaulted glass roof. Sliding double glazed doors lead to a raised koi tank with slate and water feature. A secondary oak staircase leads to a guest bedroom with an en suite shower room, and there are doors to the double garage and courtyard.

From the reception hall, an attractive oak staircase leads to a large semi-galleried first floor landing which has double doors leading to a balcony with glass screens.

Bedrooms 2 and 3 have en suite shower rooms, and bedroom 4 is serviced by the adjacent family bathroom.

Oakridge is approached through electric timber gates on brick piers which lead to a large, pavioured courtyard with space for 8 vehicles. The front garden is enclosed by close boarded fencing and laurel hedges, and features a lawn and silver birch trees.

The west facing rear garden is about 150 feet long and enclosed by high laurel and conifer hedges, offering complete privacy. There is a large, gently sloping lawn and an impressive, L-shaped, Travertine tiled entertaining terrace with space for hot tub, barbecue and leisure sofas.
