Traditionally built in the 1950s as a 3 bedroom bungalow, the property has been extended in more recent times. It has gas central heating and UPVC double glazed windows but would benefit from some modernisation.
Ferndown offers a wide range of amenities, and there is good access by road to the coastal towns of Poole and Bournemouth, which are within about 20 minutes' drive.
An open entrance porch with a quarry tiled floor leads to an L-shaped entrance hall (with storage cupboards) and a bathroom. The living room has an attractive bay window overlooking the front garden. A particular feature is the kitchen/family room which has double doors to the garden, and a walkway to a modern kitchen with black work surfaces, fitted units, stainless steel sink, double fan oven, 4-burner gas hob, extractor unit, space for dishwasher and fridge-freezer, and quality flooring. The separate utility room has work surfaces, cupboards, and a door to outside. There is also a ground floor cloakroom. The master bedroom is a spacious double overlooking the rear garden, with an en suite shower room. There is a further ground floor bedroom at the front.
On the first floor there are 3 double bedrooms and a spacious bathroom.
