Property Description

An exceptional detached THREE DOUBLE BEDROOM character house offering flexible & SPACIOUS ROOMS, ideally located close to ASHLEY CROSS. *DUAL ACCESS WITH GENEROUS PARKING* *GARDEN OFFICE* *NO CHAIN*

An exceptional detached 1930s house set on one of the largest remaining plots in this location, within a short stroll of the popular Ashley Cross Green & shopping parade, whilst also being within easy reach of Poole & Bournemouth town centres and Poole Harbour providing excellent sailing & water sports opportunities.

This character house with considerable potential for further accommodation via loft conversion and extension to the rear, as one of the neighbours have already undertaken, is located within a short walk of Ashley Cross with its array of individual shops, cafes and select bars, as well as the delightful Ashley Cross Green. Some of the superb cuisine on offer locally includes The Britannia, Raymond Blanc’s new brasserie, Miko for wholesome nourishment, Coast Surf Moto for brunches and Dragonfly for pan Asian.

The nearby Parkstone railway station provides direct rail links to London Waterloo, and the area is also within catchment for good local schools.

The property, originally allocated to the Post Master of Lower Parkstone post office, is positioned on a sunny south-facing plot and offers an ideal opportunity to re-model and extend if required. It has the added advantage of a dual access from Bournemouth Road and Ledgard Close, with vehicular access gates from both roads. The rear access off Ledgard Close leads to a further parking space & garden room, ideal for an office for those working from home.

The current owners, at considerable expense, have replaced the front and side boundary wall and installed with new coated aluminium fencing and electric sliding gates with remote control operation providing good privacy. They have also installed Telguard intercom, CCTV security including lighting and cameras to front & rear. A new gas-fired central heating boiler was installed in 2021, as well as new electrical consumer unit. The garden room is insulated and has power & internet service, which is where the previous owners ran their business from.

The property is approached via the sliding security gate to a spacious driveway with parking for four vehicles. Offering a superb layout with generously large rooms, the accommodation comprises: Reception hallway, sitting room with access to south-facing terracing, dining room, kitchen, cloakroom, three large double bedrooms with high ceilings in keeping with the period of the house, bathroom, separate cloakroom, boiler room. There is the possibility of a simple loft conversion to create further accommodation.

To the rear of the house, there is a good-sized terraced garden with Purbeck stone terrace, where steps lead up through the garden area to the wooden garden room/office with double gates leading to Ledgard Close which we understand is being re-surfaced in 2023.
