Tenure: Freehold

This property sits proudly on 1/2 an acre on a private road, in THE road in Broadstone. A superb family home with 5 double bedrooms, stunning SW facing garden, and a double garage. With a split level patio, and flexible layout this is for any age of children in a safe environment. Perfect growing up

The property is now re-available. Originally built in 1980 by a builder for his family. He had established a reputation for fine, quality construction. His style was to have lots of windows, light and flexible accommodation with flow and privacy to the property. It is a wonderful layout with lots of storage space, including a traditional walk in larder. It has been designed so that most of the rooms overlook the wonderful garden space.

This property has been a family home to the existing owners for 16 years. Imagine summer evening BBQ's and family get togethers, toasting marshmallows on the BBQ once the main event has finished. The garden that surrounds this property is like its own little forest when the sunlight peeps through the treetops and creates the shadows on the ground it's beautiful thing to witness. It is your own piece of heathland which demand that the tree houses and climbing ropes be returned. In a rarity nowadays, the children can actually play safely in the road.

The neighbouring houses in the private road have been in the same families for 17, 22 and 10 years so this is a rare opportunity.

Their children have grown up here and moved away but now one has come back and the owners have created a suite so that they have their own space. When speaking to the owners their joy of living here was the space, so that teenagers had their own space and big family gatherings were the norm, outside in the summer and in front of the open fire at Christmas.

During their time here the owners have replaced all the windows, the kitchen and utility room, the 2 bathrooms and the downstairs WC, as well as changing the boiler and installing an intruder alarm.

Drive down Ashwood Drive, you turn into a cul-de-sac at the end of which is this secluded private road. Park on the drive or in the large double garage with own loo(you can actually drive through the garage as there is a rear up and over door) to an outside hard stand). In through a covered front entrance, it is 7 steps down to the main living area and 7 steps up to the bedrooms. As you go down there is another hall, which would make for a sizeable office. The living room/dining area is split by an arch. It looks out over the back patio and garden and is over 600 sq ft. The kitchen with its quality appliances is just as impressive with a separate utility room with its own sink. The kitchen/utility room area measures over 275 sq ft. Also on this floor is what the owners currently use as an office but it would make a great children's living area, playroom/TV room/XBox room to give parents peace.

Upstairs to a large landing, 5 double bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, one ensuite in which you can luxuriate in a bath or have a separate shower. Again space is the feeling in this 100 sq ft bathroom. The loft is accessed from the landing and is very well insulated, with loft ladder and light. It contains the water softening system for the house.

Outside the garden and patio wraps around the side and rear of the property with lots of options to eat outside and watch the children play safely.

Broadstone has its own sense of community. Throughout the year there are many events and activities that the local residents get involved with. At Christmas time the children from the local nurseries, schools, scouts and brownies join in with the Christmas Parade. The local churches and library have regular events, coffee mornings and fund raising activities for families to enjoy.

Broadstone shopping parade has a variety of shops and local conveniences including a post office, butchers, a delicious bakery, a number of cafes, restaurants, a fish and chip shop, and two local pubs that serve food. There are two supermarkets: Budgens and a Tesco convenience store. On a Friday a local fish monger sets up a stand outside of Budgens and sells fresh fish and other local produce. There are Tesco and B&Q superstores about a mile away

You really do have access to most things from Ashwood Drive. The Broadstone leisure centre is just half a mile away and has a swimming pool, tennis courts, a range of fitness classes and fantastic state of the art gym equipment. The prestigious Broadstone Golf club is just 1 mile away. Closeby Wimborne has successful rugby and football clubs.

From Broadstone sports centre you can access the Castleman trail-way, where you will always be sure to find many runners and cyclists enjoying the peace-and-quiet this track guarantees to offer. If you turn left towards Poole you are just 2 miles from the beautiful Upton House and Country Park, which is considered the perfect place for a family day out, dog walks or teaching children to ride their bikes.

If you turn right on the trail-way it runs parallel with the golf course. Opposite you have direct access to the Heathland. Once at the end of the trail you could stop off at the Willet Arms pub for a coffee or lunch and a glass of wine. From the Willet arms pub you are on the outskirts of Wimborne town centre and the famous Minster.

Tower Park is a couple of miles with a 10 screen cinema complex, a Pure Gym, Bowlplex, Splashdown and loads of eateries including Nando's, TGI Fridays, and Pizza Express.

Oposite the top of Ashwood drive on Dunyeats Road itself you can access the Heathland for dog walks and welly walks. Further into Delph Woods, there is a stream for the children to play pooh stick and dogs to play in. The local pub is the Goodsyard which used to be the old railway station and Caesars bistro is a wonderful treat on a Friday or Saturday night for a romantic meal.

This is a wonderful part of the country to live in. Broadstone is on the outskirts of Poole which is a mix of quiet cobbled streets, and an always interesting stroll to the bustle of Poole Quay where you can see anything from fishing boats coming back in to sleek Sunseeker yachts, whose home is Poole. You will always find something different here: fireworks evenings to biker evenings, cockles on the quay to traditional pubs to evenings out at the Guildhall Tavern or Sunday lunch buffet at the Hotel Du Vin. And for home cooking, a visit to Greenslades fresh fish market shop on the other side of the bridge will not disappoint.

You are on the edge of Poole Harbour, which is the 2nd largest natural harbour in the world, and haven to boats of all sizes. There are of course many marinas, yacht clubs, and slipways and even if the water is not for you, it remains a spectacular sight to watch the kitefsurfers and windsurfers in this UK hub for the sports. There is also a large cycling community with a favourite trip being to take the Sandbanks chain ferry to explore the Purbeck Hills. Dorset's Jurassic Coast is a key destination for walkers.

Or of course have a chill day on the famous Sandbanks beaches.

Schools in Broadstone are great and work on a 3 tier system. At primary level is Broadstone First School, Broadstone Middle from year 5 and Corfe Hills at senior level. Poole and Parkstone Grammar schools are very close. The private schools of Yarrells, Dumpton, Castle Court and Canford are close by and Bryanston and Clayesmore run buses from Broadstone.

Commercially Poole is a growing area, enhanced by the new Twin Sails bridge and the Poole/Bournemouth conurbation is a significant employer in the South of England with the headquarters of LV, JP Morgan, Barclays International, RNLI, Sunseeker Marine, Lush and Merlin Entertainments.

Travel and commuting options from Ashwood Drive are excellent. From the top of Gravel Hill you can get on the Wimborne bypass. If you are looking to commute to Southampton or London you are within easy access to the A31 which joins the M27 and the UK's motorway network. Poole Railway station has direct routes to London and Manchester. From Poole there are daily ferries to France and the Channel Islands. And Bournemouth International Airport is the fastest growing in the UK.
