Full description32 Alton Road Stands proud as you approach it from the road. As you enter down the driveway, elegantly stood next to you is a magnificent oak tree. The driveway itself can comfortably accommodate 6 cars, plus you have the benefit of the double integral garage - plenty of space for a motorhome or boat. The plot is 33m wide. The landlords are happy to contribute to garden maintenance during appropriate seasons during the year.
You can access the back garden via gates to both the left and right hand side of the property and there is an additional storage area to the left of the property.
The property is perfectly laid out for busy family life, through the front door of the house into the hall and turn left, you are into the main living room. The living room has sliding patio doors which lead out to the decking and wonderful rear garden. The living room leads directly into the dining room, there are lovely double French doors in here which again, lead to the garden and decking. The main heart of any house is the kitchen which in this house can be dedicated to preparing family meals because there is a very large utility room for all of the more mundane things such as laundry. The integral double garage can also be accessed through the utility room, so its great for storage or putting your car in. Both the kitchen and utility room have underfloor heating so you are warm underfoot for making your morning coffee.
The ground floor has a really useful office room which has been fitted with a desk and matching storage cupboards.
Upstairs there are five bright and spacious double bedrooms and 2 bathrooms (one ensuite to the master.) There are 2 access points to a large loft, the landing and in the master bedroom. The landing that greets you as you walk up the stairs to this house is unique and welcoming you could arrange this as a reading area or comfy chill out space if you have teenagers or young children.
The property has double glazing throughout and has a Baxi Solo 2 Boiler with a fully pressurised system, meaning you have mains water pressure throughout and more importantly in the showers. Most rooms have LED spotlights and all radiators have thermostatic controls.
The back garden is just wonderful, 25 metres wide x up to 22 metres long, again has the presence of two beautiful oak trees. It is South West facing, meaning the raised decking is perfect cocktail time space, BBQ's and Al Fresco eating. There is a large summerhouse, a great storage area, and a gate to a path that leads both into Mill Lane and to Baden Powell and St Peters Primary School.
The local ones are excellent. At primary level the aforementioned Baden Powell and St Peters, just a short walk, Courthill and Lilliput C of E. At secondary level is St Edwards and Parkstone Grammar. All are Ofsted rated 2 or better.
At primary level there are also local independent schools: Bournemouth Collegiate and Buckholme Towers. There are also local bus collection points for Dumpton, Canford, Bryanston and Clayesmore.
Less than 5 minutes walk away is Parkstone railway station with direct routes to London and Manchester (and after a long days work, you can always sneak into The Cow which is 20 yards from the station for a deserved pint).
By car you are just over 2 miles from the Wessex Way and at least dual carriageway to the New Forest, Southampton and the UK motorway network.
Bus routes to Poole and Bournemouth are excellent from Ashley Cross.
The area has also become a significant employer in the South of England with headquarters of Sunseeker Marine, the RNLI, Barclays International, Merlin Entertainments, LV, Vitality and JP Morgan.
For work/holidays ferries from Poole go to France and the Channel islands. And Bournemouth International Airport is the fastest growing in the UK.
You have a mountain of things to do not far from the doorstep of 32 Alton Road, its an adventure playground for young and old be it a walk to Whitecliff Park which is right on the edge of the harbour, to teach the children how to ride their bikes, or take the dog for a walk. There is strong junior football scene in the park, a play area and an skate park.
Poole Harbour is the 2nd largest natural harbour in the world and haven to all sizes of boats. You will probably see from the photographs that the owners are boat enthusiasts. The harbour is also a UK hub for kitesurfing and windsurfing. Even if you don't take part it is a magnificent spectacle to sit on Evening Hill and watch them.
The area has a strong cycling community, particularly over on the Purbeck Hills. And Dorset's Jurassic Coast is a destination for walkers.
Or on lazier days, the famous beaches of Sandbanks are close at hand perfect for a wrap up winter walk and cozy coffee.
You are spoilt for places to eat and nightlife. Ashley Cross lovely and has a sense of community, both family friendly and for entertainment and food. On the green, there are regular events: Don't miss the famous 'Party in the Park' and 'Grooves on the Green'. Other 'must do's' while you live here: Regular visits to Mark Bennett's Patisserie, the local award winning artisan baker and the best sausage rolls in the universe. A Friday night out at Mr Kyps, famous locally for great tribute bands. A Sunday morning breakfast at The Bateau. And a special event meal at the OX with a drink first at the Bermuda Triangle.
All over there are wonderful places to eat: Koh Noi Thai Tapas in Lilliput, The Cliff in Canford Cliffs Village, or for very special, the Rick Stein restaurant on the harbour's edge in Sandbanks.
