Fernwood is a superb 5 bedroom detached modern, individual family home situated at the head of a long, private driveway, tucked well away from the road and traffic noise, standing on a large garden plot, with a feature south facing rear garden.
Originally built as a much smaller home in the 1960s, Fernwood was substantially extended in about 2002, and now extends to about 2500 sq ft of accommodation, arranged over two floors.
Traditionally constructed, the house has rendered and cement board elevations under a modern concrete tiled roof. Connected to all mains services, the property benefits from a gas heating system, and UPVC double glazed windows throughout.
Local shopping facilities are close by in Three Legged Cross, while the centres of Verwood and West Moors are only a few minutes’ drive away. The major East Dorset towns of Poole and Bournemouth are about a 30 minute drive.
Fernwood has a most contemporary feel throughout, and a particular feature is a magnificent kitchen/family room to the rear of the property.
There is a large entrance hallway, boot room, ground floor cloakroom, and a spacious living room with a feature state-of-the-art wood burning stove, and an attractive bay window overlooking the rear garden. The conservatory/dining room has access to the entertaining terrace and the rear garden.
The superb, contemporary kitchen/family room has bi-folding and sliding doors to the garden, and there is an excellent range of polished granite working surfaces, high gloss base cupboards, deep pan drawers, full height wine rack, matching wall cabinets and full height food storage cupboards, quality oak flooring and LED downlighters. There is a large island unit incorporating a 7-seater breakfast bar with an oak work top, inset 1.5 bowl stainless steel unit with state-of-the-art mixer tap, and useful cupboards. A range of appliances include a Kensington 7-burner hob including a wok burner, 2 ovens and a grill beneath, integrated dishwasher, twin integrated fridges and twin freezers, and a wine cooler. In addition, there is a utility room with a separate sink unit and space for white goods.
From the entrance hall an open glass staircase leads to the first floor, where there are 5 bedrooms (4 doubles and 1 single,) an impressive family bathroom/shower room, a large en-suite bath/shower room (with jacuzzi bath and twin basins,) and an en-suite shower room to the guest bedroom.
Agents’ Note: In addition, there is a timber retractable ladder leading to a large, lined loft area with a Velux window, which is a useful storage space.
Outside, there is a large pavioured driveway providing ample parking for numerous vehicles leading to a detached double garage. Behind the garage, there is a large, detached cabin of timber construction and fully lined ideal for a home office/studio. There is also a substantial garden shed.
The feature rear garden is enclosed by close boarded and timber fencing, and has a large, flat and well maintained lawn, with ornate decking walkways leading to a hot tub area.
