What it's got

As soon as you walk into this character home you will instantly feel welcomed, wanting to see more with engineered oak flooring continuing to the kitchen/family room. You will fall in love with the newly extended kitchen/diner/family room it certainly has the 'wow' factor. A stylish fitted kitchen boasts ultra-modern 'on trend' high gloss dark blue units with Quartz worktops, high quality fixtures, fittings and integral appliances including a dishwahser, washing machine and water softener. The lounge area is an ideal snug for you and your family/friends to gather in and there is plenty of room for a large dining table and chairs. The bi-folding aluminium doors set this room off perfectly bringing the outside in, leading onto the South facing raised decked terraced with steps that lead down to the remainder of the garden. To the front of the house is a further reception room/lounge with impressive bay windows, high ceilings and a working open fire. There is a modern cloakroom/WC. Upstairs there are two impressive double bedrooms and the third bedroom is still a small double. The main family bathroom and large separate walk in airing cupboard are also on this floor. The loft is a generous size and could easily be converted. NB: We are told there is planning permission for 4th bedroom with enclosed balcony and en-suite shower room. Underneath the property there are two cellar rooms one of which could be used for a number of things including home office, storage, workshop both benefitting from light and power. To the front there is off road parking for two cars.

Where it is

This property is conveniently located, you can easily walk to the ever popular Penn Hill parade with its range of trendy bars and bistros, amenities and there is even a Mark Bennetts 'award winning' patisserie to get your fresh bread, coffee and cakes from.

Another benefit is Branksome Chine gardens, this is a pleasant walk, ride or run directly down to Branksome beach. Both Poole and Bournemouth town centres are also in easy reach.

What the owner says

"We bought this property just before Christmas five years ago. We moved in on the Friday and bought our Christmas tree on the Sunday, decorating it in the front room while the open fire was burning has set the tone for our time here. It has always felt warm and welcoming. We love having visitors and regularly entertain at the weekend with lots of cooking inside or outside depending on the weather. The location is ideal for Bournemouth and Poole. We also enjoy walking up the road to jump on the train direct up to London to visit family. These are all reasons for us to be sad to be leaving but family really is our priority right now and the time is right for us to move a little closer to both of our parents."
