A distinctive four bedroom chalet bungalow located on a very appealing residential road. This well presented property has two ground floor bedrooms with a large family bathroom alongside two reception rooms plus a conservatory. To the first floor there are two further bedrooms, one with ensuite. The gardens are a true delight.

The historic town of Christchurch, with its 11th Century Priory, picturesque Quay, pedestrianised shopping area and excellent rail and bus links is justifiably popular. It is situated on the shores of its own spectacular natural harbour at the confluence of the rivers Stour and Avon. Close to the magnificent Dorset World Heritage Coast and the tranquil New Forest National Park, Christchurch is only a short drive from Bournemouth and Poole. The town centre has an eclectic mix of shops and restaurants with market day on a Monday, and cultural entertainments such as films and live shows are to be found at the popular Regents Centre in the centre of town.

The Property
A most appealing, spacious and well presented detached Chalet Bungalow in this enviable position in West Christchurch, within the catchment area of Twynham School. The property offers substantial accommodation arranged over two floors which could be utilised in a number of configurations. The hallway is large, light and bright with the living accommodation to the rear. There is a modern kitchen with a doorway to the garden, and a separate small utility area leading through to the garage. The sitting room has an arch leading through to the dining area to the right, and straight through are doors leading out to the conservatory with views across the garden. There are two large bedrooms to the front and a family-size bathroom.

Upstairs offers additional accommodation consisting of two further bedrooms, one with ensuite.

The Outside - A Gardener's Delight
The expansive, over 100', south-east facing rear garden is a particular feature of this property. It is a lush oasis of colour and scents cultivated with care and creativity. There is a patio directly accessed from the kitchen or conservatory and a path to the right running alongside the garden to a shed and greenhouse (installed in 2012) at the very rear. Part way up the garden is a shiplap timber summerhouse, again installed in 2012, ideally positioned, to provide additional space for relaxing, dining or simply as a haven for shade.

The Front
The property is approached by a newly installed driveway with attractive brick edging. There is generous parking for three cars. To the very front is a dwarf brick wall behind which is a shrub border providing seclusion from the road, and a small lawned area.

The Garage: This has been divided to make the utility room (7'9" x 9'7") which has power and light.

Summary
This delightful bungalow is presented in excellent decorative order throughout in neutral shades and is already a stylish family home. There is however the space for further development if required.
