About this property

  • Savills are delighted to offer for sale this charming detached character house in a quiet and highly sought-after road within this most desirable location. The local shops, restaurants and facilities of Canford Cliffs Village are all close by and reached by a level walk as is Canford Cliffs Chine with its children's park and wooded walk leading down to the promenade and award-winning beaches.

    The property is approached via an entrance porch leading to the wood panelled reception hall. The sitting room has a feature fireplace, with a door leading out to the rear garden. The modern fitted kitchen has a range of fitted units and a dining area with fireplace, and double doors to the conservatory. The study and cloakroom complete the accommodation on this level.

    The first floor accommodation comprises a main bedroom suite with fitted cupboards and its own en suite with a separate bath and shower. There are three further bedrooms all with good storage, served by a family bath and shower room. There is also hatched access to the loft from the landing. The four bedrooms on the same level make an ideal arrangement for a family and with the accommodation being over just two floors is equally desirable to those wanting to avoid multiple levels.

    Externally, the front drive provides off road parking as well as access to the integral garage which houses the boiler, meters and circuit breaker, and there is a front border of mature shrubs. The level and predominantly southerly facing rear garden is a real highlight and unexpectedly large for the property's Canford Cliffs location. The garden is laid mostly to lawn, providing an ideal outside area for al fresco dining and entertaining. There is also an external garden store with both lighting and a power point.

    The property offers scope for a new owner to modernise or extend to their own preference, subject to planning permission and any further consents, and the garden is such a good size that it could comfortably accommodate an extension.

    The opportunities to acquire a characterful home in such a sought after location is becoming an increasingly rare opportunity and we would highly recommend a viewing.
