Guide Price

What it's got

This deceptive property offers a spacious, comfortable and flexible family home. Yet as an alternative it may also offer a wealth of opportunity to remodel and renovate. Walking into the property you are welcomed by an impressive spacious entrance hallway with stairs leading to the first floor. On the ground floor there is a large lounge with a focal fireplace and feature bay window ideal for cosy nights in. At the front a large bedroom with fitted wardrobes and a feature bay window. Also leading off the hall there is a replacement contemporary bathroom. To the rear a large semi open plan sitting room/diner can be found with a double bi-folding patio door onto the garden. A doorway from here leads to the kitchen. This room is spacious and offers ample cupboard space, very light and a lovely outlook to the garden with a door leading to the garden. We see potential to extend this area to create a large open plan kitchen/diner/family again with bi-folding doors subject to the usual planning consents Upstairs the main bedroom offers wall to wall wardrobes and an en-suite bathroom which could be modernised. There are two further bedrooms. The rear garden has been landscaped to provide ease of maintenance with a large patio area leading onto the lawn. Side access leads to the front of the property providing off road parking.

Branksome train station is a walk away with direct routes to Southampton, Winchester and Waterloo, London making it a great flat to commute to/from.

What the owner says

"We first came to live in Poole in 1971 and spent much time researching where we would wish to live, yet within our price range. For us location was a serious consideration. We bought 23, Mayfield Avenue and never moved - more than half my life! We made a series of critical changes both to the structure and various enhancements and believe it is now a very flexible and comfortable house to live in. Yet now I wish to sell. The popularity of Mayfield Avenue has always been there and for many years the same people just stayed and stayed. Just a few - still there - were even there before me. Yet today many major structural changes are taking place which is testimony to this being a special location."
