The vendor has now completed on a penthouse flat and a quick sale is available.
Beautifully located 4 bedroom house sitting on a significant plot(over 5300 sq ft), 250 yards from the entrance to Parkstone Golf Club. It has a perfect South West facing garden with patio, decking and lawn. 30ft long garage and off road parking for 6 cars. Lovely home with loads of potential.
Glen Dene is easily identified by its trademark magnificent oak tree at the outer front boundary (the oak is not intrusive). There is a brick wall boundary with a tarmac drive with brick detail, a rockery garden and a path to the rear gate which leads to the back garden.
There is a dedicated bin store and a shingle path leads past the raised kitchen door to a South West facing suntrap with lawn, raised decking, paved patio, and a Clematis covered pergola. A stunning ‘Bloodgood’ Acer dominates one corner of the garden with a greenhouse in the other corner which the vendor tells us provided the family with more tomatoes and chilli’s.
The vendor has lived here for 18 years and has already agreed his forward purchase to a flat. He tells me that with the sun room doors and kitchen door opening out onto the garden it is perfect for a party BBQ.
The brick built garage is to the side of the garden and has power and light.
Through the front door into a sizeable hall with the alarm control panel, a loo and cloakroom cupboard off, what strikes is the flooding of light from the stairwell’s stunning double leaded windows.
The kitchen/breakfast room is substantial-over 170 sq ft-with a door to the back garden. There is a magnificent Stoves range cooker with 7 gas rings, 2 ovens, grill oven and warming oven with extractor hood over. There is a new Miele washing machine and a Bosch dishwasher. The kitchen houses the Potterton Profile boiler. It has a Pergo laminate floor and tiled splashbacks.
The main living area consists of a dining room, living room and open sun room. The doors between the dining room and the living area are fitted with parliament hinges so that they open out to create a large through space. In the living area is an open fire with granite surround and a cherry wood mantelpiece.
There are many lovely touches in this home from brass electrical and door furniture to 1 inch thick mahogany floor in the sun room, living area and dining room to retention of selected leaded light windows.
Upstairs there is another separate loo, a fully tiled bathroom with a bath and a shower cubicle with a new Stuart Turner pump and power shower.
The main bedroom has a wall of fitted mirror fronted wardrobes with a large window overlooking the garden. Bedroom 2 is a large double also with a fitted wardrobe. Bedroom 3 was designed by the vendors to have a custom built homework area. Bedroom 4 is currently used as an office.
From the landing the substantial loft is situated. It has a loft ladder, power and is mainly boarded and importantly already has an established skylight. Potential.
A lovely home on a great plot in a superb location.
Sky points in many of the rooms.
Virgin Media available in the road.

Parkstone Golf Club, one of the top 100 courses in the country is on your doorstep. If this is your sport, what a treat to walk to the 1st tee and back from the 19th!
Sports are a feature of the area. I guess that an interest in the water brings you to want to live here. The prestigious Royal Motor Yacht Club is on the Sandbanks peninsula, Salterns Marina is the other side of Evening Hill and the sailing centre of the area is Parkstone Yacht Club in Lilliput.
The famous West Hants Tennis Club is within 4 miles. The area has a large cycling community with a favourite destination being to take the Sandbanks chain ferry to explore the Purbeck Hills. And of course Dorset’s Jurassic Coast is a must for walkers. There are local gyms at the Haven Hotel and the Sandbanks Yacht Company and of course AFC Bournemouth is now a Premier League club.
The harbour itself is the second largest natural harbour in the world (after Sydney) with many marinas capable of mooring the largest of yachts. Poole itself is the home of Sunseeker Marine.
The natural harbour ensures safety and security for the yachts and the wonderful microclimate created by the Purbeck Hills makes for regular use of the water. And watching the kitesurfers and windsurfers in this UK hub for the sports will leave you open-mouthed. The harbour is known to be the UK’s safest venue for teaching children to windsurf and kitesurf.
If you are so inclined it is about a 20-minute walk from Glen Dene to the harbours edge, part of 7 miles of continuous beach from Poole to Bournemouth and beyond. From there you can stroll along the beach or the promenade to the famous beaches of Sandbanks. All around you in Sandbanks, Canford Cliffs and Penn Hill are wonderful restaurants with Rick Stein’s open on the edge of Poole Harbour and the Pig on the Beach is in Studland via the chain ferry.
And in Canford Cliffs itself is the local famous HND hair and beauty salon plus 2 great gastro pubs: The Cliff and The Plantation. You can walk to Penn Hill and collect your bread from the award-winning artisan bakers at Mark Bennett’s Patisserie.
The little precinct here is full of fun places to eat and drink, as are Ashley Cross and Lilliput which again are within walking distance.
And for dog lovers the area has brilliant walks, the nearest being across the road from Glen Dene through an unspoilt wood, up Links Road to the little known viewpoint with magnificent views over the golf course, to the harbour, Brownsea Island, the Purbeck Hills and Old Harry Rocks.
For shopping there are local mini Co-Op and Tesco mini stores with the supermarkets of Waitrose, M&S Food and Tesco within a mile.
If you have school age children, at primary level Lilliput 1st school and Baden Powell are Ofsted rated outstanding. There is local bus pick up points for the private schools of Dumpton, Castle Court, Canford, Bryanston and Clayesmore.
Despite living in one of the most stunning places in the UK, the area is a significant business hub with the headquarters of JP Morgan, Vitality, LV, Sunseeker Marine, Barclays International, the RNLI and Merlin Entertainments all in the conurbation.
From Glen Dene you are approximately 2.5 hours from London by car. It is a mile to the Wessex Way with at least dual carriageway to the New Forest, Southampton and the UK motorway network. By rail there are direct routes to London and Manchester. Bournemouth International Airport is the fastest growing in the UK and from Poole there are ferries to France and the Channel Islands.
