This First Floor 1 bedroom apartment has been recently renovated and resides in a converted Edwardian building providing fantastic sized rooms with high ceilings and plenty of character. A large South facing garden and shared driveway all positioned just minutes from Charminster high street make this an ideal first home.
From the curb this property has great appeal with its Edwardian features and situated just a short stroll from the popular Charminster high street with its selection of shops, bistro's and bars and a short drive to Bournemouth Town Centre and award winning beaches. The front of the property has a small garden area which could be landscaped in conjunction with the lower Flat to provide an extra space for a car, at the moment it has a shared driveway down the side that fits two cars.
As you enter through your own private side entrance you instantly see the high level of renovation that has taken place throughout the property. As you ascend up the stairs the large landing presents itself with high ceilings complemented by an attractive view.
At the rear of the property is the bedroom, a huge room with large aspect that over looks your own south facing garden. The room provides plenty of scope for a Queen sized bed, and enough wardrobes to keep even the most avid shopper happy and still leaves the room feeling spacious. The high ceilings and attractive stain glass motifs on the windows provide an impressive picturesque room to wake up in.
The kitchen / breakfast room has a very modern feel, plush countertops, spot lighting and double aspect make it a very bright room, there is also room for a small table or bistro set. The kitchen consists of integrated dishwasher, gas hob and eye-line oven with an array of over / under counter storage and plenty of worktop space. The kitchen has been designed to provide great workspace with modern appliances and leaving space for an American Style Fridge / Freezer.
At the front of the property sits the lounge / diner, as expected this is once again a very large room with high ceiling and a square bay window that is ideal for the dining table and makes an ideal location for a romantic dinner. Even with a full size dining table there is a huge space to create a comfy style lounge area with a feature fireplace. It makes a wonderful room to relax in after a long day.
The property also has an extensive loft which comes with sole ownership, there is great potential here to extend up and create a second bedroom with ensuite subject to the appropriate planning.
The obscure shaped bathroom fits with the character of the rest of the property and works really well delivering shower over bath and complementary suite.
At the rear of the property is the garden, a private area that runs the full length and opens up at the rear to provide a wonderful wide space to enjoy the long summer days. Perfectly south facing there will be no shortage of Sun, the decking area provides an ideal space for BBQ and alfresco dining.
There is no doubt this property will tick a lot of boxes, the work and effort the current owner has put into this property is clear to see the moment you enter. It is rare to have such a spacious property in a great location that delivers both parking and private garden. If you looking to get on the first step of the property ladder then this will be an ideal choice.
