This is the perfect 5-bedroom detached chalet based in the beautiful surroundings of West Moors in Ferndown. The property boasts an impressive driveway and a 3875 sq ft garden. The interior of the property is well presented and there is plenty of space throughout covering over 2000 sq ft. The property benefits from 2 bathrooms and 1 ensuite so is ideal for a growing family. There is a lot of storage on the upper floor in the eaves as well as additional loft space.
‘A great family home’, that is the impression you will get when you arrive at the property; and wait until you see the rest! At first you will see the large driveway where you can park a couple of cars, but in case you are planning a family party, there is lots of on road parking available as well. Entering the property into a welcoming entrance hallway that benefits from a large storage/cloak room. The first doors on your left and on your right lead you to a large double bedroom and a good size single bedroom, that can be used just as a guest room or a home office; the current owners are using it as a home gym. Both the rooms have bay windows letting in lots of light to both rooms. Walking further down the hall, to your left you have a downstairs shower room and through the corridor you will access the impressive kitchen that not only benefits from how spacious it is, but it has a separate good size utility room which is always handy.
In respect of the living/dining area, you can access it either from the hallway or through a mostly glazed large double door from the kitchen. The lounge is charmingly spacious with lovely French door access to the garden and for that I have a one word ”Stunning”. This is something you really need to see to appreciate the layout and use of it, but have to say that it is a plot of almost 4000 sq. ft. divided with a large attractive pond and a bridge over connecting the two sections of garden!
Going back through the house into the entrance hall to a corridor that will lead you upstairs where the rest of the magic happens. Upstairs you have a great size landing where you access your large double bedroom, single bedroom, spacious family bathroom with both bath and shower corner and lastly the master bedroom. The master is a beautiful L shape room with a French door to a Juliet balcony overlooking your beautiful garden and it benefits from an Ensuite!
West Moors has a real English village feel to it, you are surrounded by greenery, masses of outside space and not far from the property is a family favourite in the shape of “Moors Valley Country Park”.
In the heart of West Moors, there are two local pubs perfect for Sunday lunch or a couple of quiet drinks with family and friends, various shops, a baker and a butcher. There are two first schools, one middle school, two youth clubs; including the West Moors scout group, and a skatepark.
West Moors is steeped with railway history, the village was on the Southampton and Dorchester and Salisbury and Dorset Junction railway lines in the late 19th century and was later served by a branch line railway until 4 May 1964. The original level crossing at Gatekeeper’s Cottage on Station Road and the trailway footpath following the original track bed to Ringwood and Poole are now the only remnants of the railways in the village.
The village of West Moors is close to the A31 which connects to the M27 and M3 via the outskirts of Southampton to Winchester. Bournemouth International Airport is just 6.4 miles from the property. It is the fastest growing airport in the UK.
Further afield from West Moors is the neighbouring town of Ferndown. Ferndown has many shops, two large supermarkets and some local eateries suitable for all tastes.
