Queens Road - Ferndown - A stunning, beautifully restored 4 bedroom, 4 bathroom 1930s detached house in one of Ferndown’s most popular residential locations, less than 1 mile from the village centre.

Queens Wood has recently undergone a major programme of extension and restoration, during which no expense was spared in creating a beautiful family home true to its original character. Traditionally built in 1930, the house has cavity brick walls, colour-washed rendered elevations and a hipped concrete tiled roof, and is impeccably presented, with many interesting features including an impressive sun balcony.

The property is set on a prominent corner site at the junction of Queens Road and Queenswood Drive, enjoying easy access to Ferndown’s excellent range of retail and leisure amenities which include a renowned championship golf course. The property is only 20 minutes’ drive from the centres of Poole and Bournemouth, both of which have mainline rail links to London Waterloo.

Connected to all mains services, the property has gas central heating (with traditional cylinder radiators throughout), and leaded UPVC double glazed windows.

An enclosed entrance porch leads to a large reception hall with pine flooring and a built-in double coat cupboard. The attractive sitting room has a limed oak floor and 3 pairs of casement doors to the garden. There is an impressive separate dining room with pine flooring and a fireplace with a wood burning stove.

The kitchen/breakfast room features a limestone floor, an attractive bay window overlooking the front garden, slate and oak work surfaces, an excellent range of units (with concealed worktop lighting), a matching dresser, an island (with inset Falcon 5-burner range cooker and extractor over), an integrated dishwasher and space for an American style fridge-freezer.

A rear porch with a quarry tiled floor has a door to outside and leads to a cloakroom.

From the hall, an easy tread staircase (with half landing and large picture window) leads to the first floor landing, which has a double storage cupboard. There is an impressive master bedroom with double doors to a large sun balcony overlooking the rear garden, with a large fibre deck surrounded by glass and modesty screens giving a high level of privacy. The bedroom is complemented by a fully fitted en suite dressing room and a superb en suite bathroom with contemporary free standing oval bath tub, basin on a slate plinth, bronze mirror, and double doors to the sun balcony.

There are two further double bedrooms on the first floor, along with a high quality, fully tiled family bathroom with twin-ended bath and shower. A separate shower room comprises shower, wash basin and WC.

Ledged-and-braced timber double gates lead to a large courtyard with ample space to park numerous vehicles. A 5-bar gate leads to a further driveway and a detached garage (with a pitched roof). The front garden is planted with copper beech trees, a fir tree, bamboos and rhododendrons.

The rear garden is enclosed by close boarded fencing and walling, and features a paved terrace, a large lawn with stone edgings, an established tree line largely of pine, including oak, copper beech and lime, shingle pathways, shrubs including bamboos and rhododendrons, and a small woodland area retained by a stone stack wall.
