This individual home is set in a favoured cul-de-sac just off the ever-popular Upper Golf Links Road, about 1 mile from the centre of Broadstone village and within reach of Poole and Wimborne. Excellent independent schools are nearby including Canford, Corfe Hills and Poole and Parkstone Grammar Schools.
Designed and built by the current owners for their own occupation in 1979, 61 Merriefield Avenue is an interesting property with great potential for extension and re-modelling, subject to the necessary planning consents. Traditionally built, with stone and cement render facing elevations under a concrete tiled roof, the house sits in the middle of the plot, with 2 driveways and excellent parking facilities for cars, boats, caravans and trailers.
It is connected to all mains services and benefits from gas central heating, replacement UPVC double glazed windows and an unusual central open courtyard between the living and dining areas. Off the first floor landing, a casement door leads to a superb roof terrace enclosed by chrome and glass balustrades, overlooking Delph Woods and Broadstone Golf Course.
A wide covered entrance way with 4 archways and a quarry tiled floor leads to a large, L-shaped reception hall with a further archway leading to an inner hallway, off of which there is a utility room (with floor-to-ceiling gas boiler) and a cloakroom.
The impressive sitting room has a large window overlooking the garden, and a full height stone fireplace with raised hearth, wood burner and copper canopy. Double doors lead to a garden room which gives access to an open inner courtyard with doors to the garden.
The spacious, dual aspect dining room has oak strip flooring and an attractive outlook over the garden. The kitchen/breakfast room has granite work surfaces, oak-effect units, Miele fan oven, 4-burner gas hob, extractor, and integrated washing machine, fridge and freezer.
Also on the ground floor is the large master bedroom which has built-in wardrobes and a large en suite bath/shower room.
From the first floor landing, a door leads to an impressive roof terrace with chrome and glass balustrading, space for substantial garden furniture and an attractive open outlook. The very large second bedroom has 4 large windows giving fine views over Delph Woods and Broadstone Golf Course.
There are 2 further double bedrooms, a single room with a built-in cupboard, and a family bathroom.
To the front, the property has a lawn with planted borders, a detached double garage with electric up-and-over door, and a driveway with space for 1 vehicle. A second driveway, shared with the neighbouring property, gives access through wrought iron double gates to a further parking area with a carport and access to a cellar.
The front garden has a lawn with planted borders. The rear garden is an outstanding feature, being enclosed mainly by close boarded fencing, with a large, flat lawn. Stone steps and a retaining wall lead to an upper garden area with a lawn and a terrace. There is a bank planted with shrubs, and various trees including apple and palm. There is also a large terrace outside the garden room.
