A 4 double bedroom chalet bungalow on a significant plot (almost 8000 sq ft) in this sought after avenue that runs alongside Parkstone Golf Club. Large rear garden and patio that has sun all day. Lots of off road parking plus garage. This property has huge potential and is offered at a fair price.
The owners have lived here for 15 years and now that their grandchildren have grown up, they are downsizing and have identified their next property. They tell me that the grandchildren loved the back garden with its hiding places and particularly having sleepovers in the summerhouse.
During their time at the property, they have replaced the galvanized pipes to the property, built a large quality conservatory with underground heating, converted the garage, replaced a number of windows and just over 2 years ago replaced the boiler. That included a water cleaner to avoid ‘sludge’ in the system. They have also installed a water softener and a water purifier.
It is a tardis inside and the back garden and patio are perfect for summer parties.
A stone rendered wall entrance leads to a block paved drive leading up to the rear wooden gates. Off of the block paving is a shingle parking area. Beyond the gates is a further 15.4 meters of block paved drive leading to the garage if more parking is required. There are tropical raised beds with sleeper surrounds to the left and the front of the property with wooden fencing on the right hand side. There is power to the front beds for the lights. Up gentle slab steps to the covered front porch with standard lights to each side and a light sensor. The front door is UPVC with obscure double glazed side panels filling the entrance hall with light.
The entrance hall itself is significant and could make an ideal office space. The hall gives access to 3 of the bedrooms, the living room and the kitchen with walk in larder. The living room overlooks the rear patio and has a gas fire-the owners believe that the chimney can be opened up for a real fire if wanted.
The living room leads into a magnificent conservatory with underfloor heating and air conditioning. The owners have joined the garage onto the house and given it a separate power supply and converted it into a utility room, an extra fridge area/pantry and an office.
On the first floor is a large bedroom with en suite bathroom and a dressing room-again this offers flexibility. Plus access to storage in the eaves.
The rear garden is sun-all-day West facing. The L-shaped plus patio is big enough for any garden party. Raised shingle beds and raised flower/shrub beds have a gazebo with a mature vine. There are steps up to lawn or a sloping path on the other side of the garden past the outside shed. Both lead up to the summerhouse and balcony, which has power and light(there is wiring throughout the garden for lighting). Outside water tap, hard stand for greenhouse, raised vegetable beds. Fully enclosed by timber fencing-pet-friendly.
This is a flexible opportunity, perhaps to have ‘granny’ accommodation, perhaps invest in the land and rent it out temporarily, or just a great location for a family home.
A great plot in a sought after location.
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. In fact it is just a sand wedge to the 5th fairway and from the property you can get views between the trees of the fairways.
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 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 Compton Avenue to the harbour’s 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 a brilliant walks, a favourite being 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 are 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 Compton Avenue you are approximately 2.5 hours from London by car. It is just over 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.
A wonderful lifestyle location.
