Found in a sought-after residential road within Boscombe Manor, this incredible character home is just minutes from Southbourne high street, the beach and amenities. The current owners benefit from the best of what the area has to offer, without the hustle and bustle of town centre madness! Woodland Walk nature trail (found directly opposite) leads down towards the cliff tops and award-winning beaches, where you’ll catch the most stunning sunsets, and the best waves around! You really do get the ‘best of both worlds’ here, with the ability to explore our local area, and to entertain friends and family at home, no matter the occasion.
This detached family home in Woodland Avenue offers a combination of charming period character and modern upgrades that allow a brilliant way of living. Make your way up the impressive, wide staircase (naturally lit by a beautiful half landing window) and you’ll find that all bedrooms are spacious and provide ultimate flexibility. Those with kids, those working from home and those looking to live with extended family need to see this. Each bedroom has its own special feeling- the main bedroom is huge, with a brilliant bay window. Another large room at the rear boasts a new en suite shower room. The two remaining bedrooms upstairs are dual-aspect doubles, large enough to take bunk beds along with large furniture. No arguments over who gets which room here!
They say the kitchen is the heart of the home- but we’re loving the large open plan, triple-aspect lounge-dining space just as much! It’s bright throughout the day and lends itself to different uses, which is perfect for busy families looking for extra space for everyday routines. The downstairs bedroom (once the garage) and shower rooms are separated from the main living area by a bright, impressive hallway; some may opt to extend or open-up the ground floor. Need a home office? Maybe a Peloton pain cave? Woodland Avenue has you covered.
The traditionally separate kitchen has been modernised with contemporary cabinetry, a stunning range cooker (to remain) and plenty of worktop space. There are views and rear access into the rear garden from both this room and the main living space. We also love that the cute serving hatch remains!
The South-East rear garden is proportional in size, offering two patio areas and a lawn with flower and shrub borders for green-fingered buyers looking for a sunny aspect space to work in. Plenty of space for kids to entertain themselves whilst the BBQ is in full swing (when you’re not at the beach). Secure, gated side access to the front of the property is found on both sides.
Whilst the driveway currently gives room for multiple vehicles, it can be extended into the garden space and there is ample on-road parking for extra visitors attending your house warming party.
Bournemouth train station gives direct lines to Southampton (< 1hr)and London Waterloo (2hrs). Bournemouth Airport flys to various European locations.
