A superb opportunity to acquire a spacious family home which is set in a great location between Southbourne Grove and local clifftops. The property has been sympathetically modernised throughout retaining many original features and should be internally viewed to be appreciated in full.


Spacious entrance hallway * Living room * Dining room * Modern fitted kitchen * Utility * Ground floor bedroom * Four first floor double bedrooms * Modern family bathroom * Off road parking * Private rear garden * Vendors suited.


This superb family home is set in an enviable location, just a short distance from Southbourne Grove and its associated independent shops, eateries and transport links into Bournemouth, Poole and Christchurch. Local sandy beaches are also within a few hundred yards away. 

The house has been fully modernised by the current owners and offers spacious, well appointed and modern accommodation throughout yet retains many original and characterful features such as stripped wood floorboards, high and ornately coved ceilings, original stained glass windows and original cast iron/tiled fireplaces.

Entering the home you will find a spacious entrance hall which features stripped wood floorboards, original stained glass windows and stripped wood doors leading to all principle ground floor rooms.

The living room is set to the front and benefits from a large double glazed bay window, filling the room with an abundance of natural light. Ceilings are high and ornately coved and there is a fitted log burner ideal for cold winter nights. The room offers plenty of space for a couple of sofas along with a good range of other living room furniture.

Offering multiple uses the second reception room is currently arranged as a child's playroom but would make a superb formal dining or second sitting room. There are double glazed windows to both front and side aspects and a feature original fireplace, original stripped floorboards and ornately coved ceilings adding to the character of the room.

The kitchen/breakfast room provides plenty of room for a good sized table and being set to the rear of property features double glazed French doors leading to the rear gardens. There is a really handy pantry  and a comprehensive range of modern kitchen units set above and below attractive wooden worktops which feature an inset Butler style sink. A double oven is fitted with an electric hob and stainless steel extractor hood above, there is also space for an American style fridge/freezer with further appliances kept within an adjoining utility.

The utility room is a really handy space housing the modern gas boiler and providing room for a washing machine, tumble dryer and dishwasher. A side door gives access to both the front and rear gardens and a further door leads to a ground floor bathroom fitted with a modern white three piece suite, perfectly placed for a shower and warm up after a winter walk or summer swim at the nearby beach. 

From the ground floor an attractive return staircase leads to a roomy first floor landing which offers room for storage furniture and leads to all rooms.

The master bedroom is set to the front of property and benefits from a dual aspect with double glazed windows to both the front and side. There is an original feature fireplace and plenty of space for a double bed or larger plus other bedroom furniture.

Bedrooms 2 features an extensive range of fitted wardrobes and makes a great double room overlooking the rear gardens along with bedroom 3. Like the master bedroom 4 offers a dual aspect and in our opinion is a great size for property of this style as it will still take a double bed.

Modernised in only recent times the family bathroom has been well fitted, the fitted suite comprising a low level WC, floating handwash basin with vanity storage beneath and a bath with a shaped shower end, wall mounted mixer valve, shower screen to side and rain style shower head above. Offering a touch of luxury floors have been fully tiled and feature underfloor heating.

Outside the front garden is enclosed by low level walling and laid to lawn with a dropped kerb leading to a shingled drive providing off road parking. The rear garden is a good size compared to similar homes in the immediate area and is laid mainly to lawn. A wooden decked area captures the last of the evening sun and there is a good sized summer house which has been fitted with power and light, great for storage or possibly to create a garden escape or home office

Houses of this nature ' South side of The Grove' are always popular hence we recommend internal viewing at your earliest convenience. Our sellers are also currently suited with a complete forward chain above therefore a timely move should be possible.
