Vendors Comments

Vendors comments- "This has been my family home since 1962 when four generations all lived together. It was a 3 generation home until recently. It was lovingly looked after by my Father and eventually my Husband and a lot of improvements were made until they both became too ill to continue, so some loving care is now needed again. This house has so many wonderful memories of laughter and fun. Christmas time especially with a large Christmas tree stood in the hall is a sight to behold, with presents lined up on the bench seats waiting to be opened. This home oozes happiness, it makes you smile when you enter, it’s warm and friendly and I will be so sad to leave as my children grew up here, my memories are here, but I need to down size and give this house to another family to make their memories. I just want someone to love this house as I do"

Description

A substantial 7 bedroom, 3 reception room detached character house situated in the sought after Kings Park area of Bournemouth.

Accommodation is over 3 floors and comprises a magnificent hallway with fitted furniture, 3 large reception rooms and a kitchen on the ground floor. On the 1st floor you will find 4 bedrooms, a bathroom and separate WC. On the second floor there are a further 3 bedrooms, all with eaves storage. A particular feature of the property is the impressive hallway which has lots of intricate character features including heart carved balusters and fitted original style benches.
