A perfect and immaculate quality 4 double bedroom family home situated at the end of a cul de sac. 2 reception rooms are an ideal opportunity to create a children’s play/TV room or office. Quality throughout the property. Large private garden with sunken patio, garage plus off road parking. No chain.

The house is at the end of the King Richard Drive cul de sac, meaning it is quiet. It also backs onto playing fields then the nature reserve so it really is a peaceful location with no road noise.
Turn into the drive where there are currently 2 off road parking spaces plus the garage. There is the option to increase the off road parking. As well as an up and over garage door it also has a private entrance to the side next to the bin store which is neither visible from the road or the house. That is where the back gate is also located so it is easy to take the rubbish out from the kitchen or access the storage in the garage loft.

The property is one of the more spacious 4 bed designs in comparison to other house layouts in Bearwood and particularly for King Richard Drive. The design is evident throughout the property with a 250 sq ft living room and a 125 sq ft kitchen/breakfast room. The joy is having a 2nd reception room which would a great TV room for the children so the adults can have ‘me time’ in their own living room.

The ground floor has the essential loo and good under stairs storage. Storage is also considered on the 1st floor with the fully boarded loft with light and loft ladder and a large airing cupboard. There are 2 bathrooms on the 1st floor both with extra storage and the main bedroom has fitted wardrobes and Bedroom 2 has a built in storage cupboard.
You see the care that has gone into the property: regularly decorated, Karndean flooring, modern bathrooms, Bosch appliances, Vaillant Condensing Combination Boiler, Megaflo Heatrae Sadia pressurized water cylinder. The property was re-wired and re-plumbed just before the vendors bought it and you will note that it is fully double glazed and there are lots of radiators throughout the property, all thermostatically controlled.

The back garden is delicious and again so well planned-the side storage areas, the access to the garage. It has a sunken patio and raised lawn and best of all no neighbours at the rear. It is West facing and starts getting the sun from midday. Due to there being no properties behind, you have the sun all day to the point of sunset and there are some cracking sunset views looking out over the back to the heath. Perfect for summer BBQ’s and a chilled drink.
A perfect family home in a peaceful location with no forward chain.

Area Description
The property backs onto playing fields with access via a little known pathway just 50 yards from the home. The playing fields lead to Canford Heath Nature Reserve, which at over 850 acres is one of the largest in Dorset. The vendors are keen cyclists and runners and will miss this opportunity when they leave. Of course it is great too for walking and walking the dog. The playing fields are of course ideal for the children to have a kickabout or to teach them to ride their bikes. They can even play in the fields as you can watch them from the property. And of course the nature reserve is an unspoilt place for your children to learn about nature.

For golfers the playing fields are a quick access to Knighton Heath Golf Club. Sports are well catered for locally. From Wimborne Rugby Club to Pure Gym at Tower Park to The East Dorset Tennis Club. There are Indoor beach courts at the nearby Leaf Studio, the only purpose built indoor provision of its kind in the country, able to fit in three full size volleyball courts. The beach courts are multi use – regularly booked for football, rugby, beach tennis and team fitness sessions. It also has a brand new, purpose built sports hall large enough to accommodate international competitions. The new hall measures 27m by 60m with a 13m high roof, meaning it is able to host international events for a variety of different sports with dividing nets to separate the courts.

The hall can hold a minimum of 1,000 spectators, which makes it suitable for use as a mini arena or flexible performance space. Staging and lighting are available for hire.
The large indoor area can cater for various sports and activities including Volleyball, Futsal, Badminton, Netball and Handball. It also has a strength and conditioning centre.
For younger children, the local play area has been refurbished.

It is just 20 minutes to the famous beaches of Sandbanks and Poole Harbour. 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.

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.
And there is of course work and School. 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. You are approximately 2.5 hours from London by car. It is a couple of miles to the A31 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.

At primary level schools closeby schools include Bearwood Primary and Nursery School(Ofsted good) and the Ofsted outstanding Elm Academy. At secondary level it is just a couple of miles to the Poole grammar schools but closer still is the wonderful Leaf Studio with its specialist Stage and Screen grounding which provides learners with a strong grounding in the arts, and within film, television and visual effects. And the Athlete Academy at the school which is first secondary school in the country to be recognised by the TASS Dual Career Accreditation Scheme.
There are well regarded doctors at the Bearwood Medical Centre. Ditto dentists at the Bear Cross Dental Practice.
For shopping there is a choice of a local Co-Op store with an adjoining pharmacy in King John Avenue. A Tesco Extra Store is at Tower Park, an Asda Store at Canford Heath and a Lidl on the Ringwood Road Retail Park which also has Sports Direct, Dunelm and the Range stores. Or a drive to the famous Castlepoint Shopping Centre which is 5 miles away.
Tower Park itself has an Empire multiscreen cinema, Ten Pin Bowling, a Splashdown Water Park plus loads of eateries including Day’s, Nando’s and TGI Friday’s.
A brilliant house in a great place to live.
