Best Of Both Worlds.
The modern living-cooking-dining area is where most will spend their time, thanks to plenty of worktop space, a breakfast bar, plus room for a large table. Wide, fully-openable bi fold doors and a single patio door open to the garden and side access, making this the perfect spot to entertain friends and family year round. Natural light floods in here, thanks to a sunny orientation and plenty of windows- this really does offer the indoor-outdoor lifestyle we all love. Crucially however, when the sun isn’t shining or you just want to up the cosiness, a separate living room offers a peaceful retreat (perfect as a parents only sanctuary!)…at Gleadowe Avenue you really do have the best of both contemporary open-plan living and a traditional ‘front room’. Light the wood burning stove, put your favourite series on, and escape.
The contemporary kitchen is a classy, sleek design and offers plenty of storage, ample workspace, space for a range cooker (extractor over), integrated white goods plus a pantry. Further storage is offered in an additional adjacent kitchen/utility room- this room can become whatever you want, but would naturally create great independent living for whomever is using the downstairs bedroom, which is currently an office (We’re thinking In-Laws? Teenagers?). We encourage all buyers to study the floor plan and utilise our interactive 3D virtual tour to fully appreciate the possibilities here (guided virtual tours are possible with our team- just ask!)
Outside, you’ll find the rear garden is laid to lawn and resin patio, with space to entertain and for kids to tire themselves out! The current owners have a shed, hot tub (we’re jealous!) and a large dining set and there is PLENTY more space. With a Southerly aspect, finding the sun isn’t an issue, plus this means that after a long day tanning, playing with the kids or BBQing, the sitting room is a cool retreat). To the front, space for several vehicles plus a dropped curb provides sufficient family parking.
On the first floor you’ll find 5 Bedrooms, with a generously sized primary room overlooking the garden, another boasting an en suite shower room, and several having built in wardrobes…there are plenty of doubles (and kings) to choose from, and there’s no fighting for the small room! For those wanting to split the home to create an annex, this is easy, thanks to a separate staircase into an upstairs bedroom. There’s even separate access into the rear garden, via private patio doors. Simply lock the doors circled in red on the floor plan!
Working from home here doesn’t require a room in the garden- thanks to the considered floor plan, you can dedicate a bona fide office room with central heating and your own private bathroom amenities…at the end of the work day, simply step back into your main living space. Keep the garden space for fun with the kids, pottering and relaxing. This is what working from home SHOULD be like.
Gleadowe Avenue is found in a desirable, connected location that is less than a 5 minute walk to the train station, very close to Christchurch Town Centre and only a few minutes away from Southbourne. Bus stops on Stour Road give regular access around the area, and Gleadowe Avenue is within the highly sought after Twynham School catchment. Useful shops and amenities are extremely close by, as are popular pubs and restaurants, revered by locals.
This versatile home is ready for inspection, and we’re excited to plan how this flexible space can work for you and your family.
