Despite its semi-rural setting, the property is conveniently located, with excellent access to Bournemouth Airport and the A338 spur road, and within 20 minutes’ drive of the coastal towns of Bournemouth and Poole, both of which have mainline rail links to London Waterloo.

Connected to mains electricity and water The Firs has a private drainage system, LPG gas central heating (with under floor heating to the ground floor) and UPVC double glazed windows. Features include a modern kitchen/family room, a spacious sitting room, a ground floor master bedroom with en suite wet room, 4 sets of bifold doors across the rear of the house, ground and first floor bathrooms, a utility room and a substantial cabin/home office in the garden.

The property has a reception hall with oak flooring and an under stairs cupboard. There is a lounge with bifolding doors and French doors to a sun deck, and a central open fireplace with a log burner serving both the lounge and the dining/family room, which also has bifolding doors to the garden, and oak flooring.

The open plan kitchen is fitted with hand-painted, country style units, solid timber worktops, basket drawers, a dresser unit, a gas range cooker, a larder fridge, and space and plumbing for a dishwasher. There is a separate utility room with Belfast sink, appliance space and stable door to the side.

Bedroom 1 has bifolding doors to the sun deck and a fully tiled en suite wet room, and bedroom 2 has a double glazed bay window to the front. There is a family bathroom with a modern suite.

On the first floor, there are 2 bedrooms and a fully tiled bath/shower room. Bedroom 3 is a dual aspect double room, and bedroom 4 has a dual aspect and access to eaves storage cupboards.

The Firs is set well back from the road, within a large garden plot which has an in-and-out driveway and a brick built detached double garage with electric up-and-over door, lighting, power points and personal door to the side. Adjacent to the house there is a large timber sun deck ideal for outside entertaining.

The gardens are principally lawned, and there is a large timber cabin/home office to the rear of the property.

The stable block comprises 3 loose boxes, a tack room with water and lighting, and a haystore/tractor shed. The 5 paddocks have post-and-rail and mains electric fencing, and 2 self-filling water troughs.
