What it's got

This traditional home must not be missed, it offers well proportioned rooms throughout and has plenty of scope to extend and improve. The ground floor is plentiful in accommodation with a welcoming hallway leading to all principle rooms and a cloakroom. At the front of the house there is a dining room/second reception with feature bay window. The lounge is a good size with ample space for furniture and are double opening french doors leading onto the patio with pleasant views over the garden. A door loops through to a 'shaker style' cream wooden kitchen/breakfast room with a range of units to eye and base level, space for a breakfast table and chairs and even a large pantry. If you desire the ever popular open plan style of living this could easily be achieved by knocking through these two rooms and using the dining room as a lounge/tv room, subject to planning of course. Leading up the solid wooden stair case you come to the first floor. The master bedroom is larger than average with lots of space for furniture. You will fall in love the minute you walk out onto the sun terrace offering stunning views of Poole Harbour across to the Purbeck Hills and on a clear day you can even see Corfe Castle. There are two bedrooms inter linked you could knock through to have one large bedroom or of course keep it as is. This room also benefits from the view. The second bedroom is a good sized with a comprehensive range of modern wardrobes including a walk in section. The bathroom is spacious with a bath and separate walk-in shower. The garden is the size which most families want with an abundance of mature tree, plant and shrub borders. Plenty of space to accommodate trampolines, swings but yet still leaving space for adult socialising, barbecuing and entertaining. With its southerly aspect it makes for a great suntrap trap during the summer. To the side is a detached garage and driveway with parking for several cars. Agents Note- One of the neighbouring properties has been extensively remodelled over recent years with a side and loft extension.

This location also benefits from being in the catchment area of a brand new junior school, Ocean Academy which first opened its doors in September 2015. The school is aiming for outstanding status in the ofsted reports which again has driven the area and made this a hot spot to be in. Ashley Cross is in walking distance at only 0.6 miles away offering an array of amenities, cafes, fashionable bars and trendy bistros. Parkstone train offers regular services to Waterloo, London making it ideal for commuters. Poole Park is only a mile away and offers great entertainment for all the family with a boating lake run by Rockley watersports, an ice-rink, indoor soft play area and children’s play area.

What the owner says

"This house has provided us with a great family home with lots of outside space. We initially chose it for its spacious room sizes, good sized garden and, of course, the distant sea views. We have loved its quiet, secluded position whilst enjoying its proximity to the park and town. It is also in an excellent school catchment area."
