The property has been in the ownership of the same family since new in 1962 and has been extended over the years to provide spacious, well proportioned and flexible living accommodation. It requires refurbishment, offers much scope for further improvement, and benefits from gas central heating and double glazing.
The property is in a highly sought after residential road on the southern banks of the River Stour, where there are scenic river walks. There is easy access to the town centre with its lively shopping centre and wide range of amenities, and bus services close by connect to the resort towns of Poole and Bournemouth, both of which have mainline rail links to London Waterloo.
The reception hall has an understairs storage cupboard, an airing cupboard and a meter cupboard. The large lounge has a tiled fireplace (with fitted gas fire) and windows overlooking the rear garden which adjoins open countryside. The kitchen/breakfast room has a range of fitted cupboards, worktops, drawers, appliance space, built-in pantry, tiled recess with Glow Worm gas central heating boiler and door to the side. There is a separate dining room and a study/bedroom 5. Bedroom 4 has a double wardrobe. The bathroom has a vanity wash basin and a panelled bath, and there is a separate WC.
From the reception hall, a staircase leads to the first floor landing where there is access to the loft space. Bedroom 1 has access to eaves storage cupboards, far reaching views across open countryside towards the river, and an en suite shower room (with shower, WC, pedestal wash basin and further access to eaves storage space.) Bedroom 2 has built-in wardrobes and access to eaves storage, and bedroom 3 has a fitted double wardrobe and shelving.
A long driveway provides ample off road parking and extends to the side of the property to a double garage which has an up-and-over door, lighting, power points, side window and door to the rear garden. The front garden has established shrubs. There is access at both sides of the property to the lovely, south westerly facing rear garden which affords a large degree of privacy and has a sitting area, lawns, and a water feature with pond and waterfall. The rear section of the garden extends over the old railway line to the left where the vendor purchased additional land, and set it up as a woodland and wildflower area.
