Darbys Lane, Oakdale, BH15£450,000
As soon as you walk into this home you will instantly fall in love. It has a lovely and welcoming homely feel and oozes character and charm. The current owner has sympathetically restored and refurbished the property yet has retained much of its original features. All rooms have been tastefully decorated with a 'magazine' living vibe.
Downstairs flows beautifully with two connecting lounges, one of which boasts a wood burner ideal for wintery nights and the other enjoys pleasant views of the garden via French doors. The dining room is a great space for entertaining and even has a hidden plates/glasses cupboard with a doorway leading to the kitchen. The kitchen has been cleverly designed with a range cooker. A door leads through to an additional contemporary shower room. A utility room loops back through to the lounge and gives access to the garden.
Upstairs does not disappoint either, with a split staircase leading to all rooms. The master bedroom benefits from fitted wardrobes and double opening doors lead through to the Main family bathroom. The other two bedrooms are both good sized doubles and have original ornate fireplaces. The main bathroom is in keeping with the period of the property and would be great place to retreat to after a long day.
The generous garden is definitely one of the properties main features. Again, it has been landscaped and planned to perfection with various seating areas. There is a summer house and two storage sheds. To the front a gravelled driveway provides off road parking.
Whilst the property is literally ready to move straight into there is still ample scope to extend, subject to the usual consents.
Agents note: The current owner still has a few things to finish. Subject to early reservation the prospective buyer could have a choice of flooring in the bedrooms & hallway/landing. If desired, subject to negotiation the owner would also consider selling the property fully furnished.
Oakdale is slowly becoming the place to be for families due to the ever popular schools. You are conveniently in walking distance of local amenities and the supermarkets are all in easy reach. Poole town centre is approx. a 5-10 minute drive away and there are regular bus routes. You also have easy access to the dual carriage way which links to the main motorways making it an easy commute. Not forgetting Poole train station with its fast link to Southampton, Winchester and Waterloo, London.
"What to tell you about Bramberly Cottage?. All the children I know call it the Hide & Seek house.
My son & I have lived here for the 15 years of his life. We have laughed & cried, restoring this cottage. It had been a labour of love and one that had a special meaning to me, my grandfather was Winston Churchills, driver.....man Friday. Lord & Lady Wimborne, were Winston Churchill Aunty & Uncle.....so for me the chance to restore it back to its former glory has been an honour and a blessing.
We love nothing more than closing the blinds & living in what we think is our secluded, calm, inviting Hideaway or having parties in our garden or putting the tunes on and cooking a roast.
So why sell, due to a change in job! I find myself based in London or New York."
