You walk into a welcoming hallway of this character home and want just want to see more. The lounge/diner has been recently modernised with stylish Karndean flooring. You will love this cosy room during the winter months with its working wood burner and pleasant outlook over the garden. An curved archway divides the two rooms perfectly and from here French doors lead onto the patio. The front reception room/second lounge makes a great place to retreat or could utilise well as playroom/office. The kitchen comprises of white high gloss units and breakfast island, a personal door leads to the side of the house. There is a recently installed modern downstairs shower room with walk in shower, basin and wc. Upstairs there are three good size double bedrooms all with modern wardrobes and the fourth bedroom/office easily fits a single plus benefits from built in wardrobes. Again the modern upstairs shower room comprising of walk in shower, wash hand basin and wc has been recently installed with luxury fixtures and fittings and a matching additional separate wc next door. The Westerly facing garden has been beautifully landscaped by the current owners with an abundance of exotic plants and shrubbery. There is a patio area ideal for barbecuing and entertaining during the summer. There is a detached garage and separate workshop/store to the rear. The front of the house equally complements the property with cleverly planted raised borders and a driveway provides off road parking for 2/3 cars.
The property is in a desirable and prestigious road. You can easily walk to the ever popular Penn Hill parade with its range of trendy bars and bistros, amenities and there is a Mark Bennetts 'award winning' patisserie where you can buy your fresh bread, coffee and cakes. Nearby is Branksome train station which can be accessed via steps up to Doyne road from Archway Road with regular routes to Southampton, Winchester and Waterloo, London. A pleasant walk, ride or run via Branksome Chine gardens gives direct access to the award winning Branksome beach. The property sits between Poole and Bournemouth town centres allowing easy access to both.
When we first viewed the property about 18 years ago it was in need of some TLC but we were drawn to its potential. The location is ideal being so close to Penn Hill and within walking distance of the beach via Branksome Chine. We have thoroughly enjoyed modernising the house. The garden was a blank canvass and we take pride in having made it into the oasis you see today. It is now time for us to move onto our next chapter in life but will be sad to say goodbye.
