Directional Note: From the main roundabout in Christchurch take the Barrack Rd exit and continue along until the 1st set of traffic lights turning left onto Stour Rd. The property will be found after a short distance on the right-hand side.

47 Stour Road offers the opportunity to purchase a substantial detached house comprising over 2,300 sq ft of adaptable accommodation. This characterful property is situated approximately half a mile from the historic Christchurch Town Centre with its 11th Century Priory, Town Quay and various shops, cafes, bars and restaurants. There are regular bus services nearby as well as Christchurch main line railway station and local neighbourhood shops. The house is also located within the Twynham School Catchment Area.

A viewing comes highly recommended, not only to appreciate the property's excellent location but also the accommodation on offer. The property would make an excellent family home or investment. In a former life the property was used as a successful bed & breakfast and retains many of the features that would make it easy for any potential purchaser to turn it back, all the way from the fire and burglar alarm system down to the numbers that still remain on some of the bedroom doors.

To the front of the property a block paved driveway provides off road parking for several cars. A further pathway to the right-hand side leads to the rear garden. The entrance porch leads through to the entrance door and in turn the entrance hall with a useful storage cupboard and attractive wood floors which run through to both reception areas.

The lounge/dining room is set to the rear of the property and provides the perfect entertaining space with a large window to the rear and double doors to the garden allowing plenty of light through from the westerly aspect. The current owners have split this room into separate lounge and dining areas with a feature fireplace in the dining section.

The second reception room is set to the front of the property with a large bay window to the front with replacement sash windows. If required this room could easily be set up as a ground floor bedroom with its access to the ground floor shower room with fitted suite comprising close coupled w.c., wash hand basin and shower unit.

The kitchen/breakfast room is set to the rear of the property and comprises a range of attractive base and eye-level units with worktop over. There are 2 integral 'Siemens' ovens, 1 of which is a microwave oven as well as integral cooker which is ideal for those who love to cook. There are gas and induction hobs along with a pan grill in the middle, above there is a 'Siemens' extractor fan. There is also space in the kitchen area for washing machine, American fridge/freezer and wine cooler. The breakfast area offers ample space for table and chairs. From this room there is a door down to the cellar which is an interesting feature of this property offering an excellent storage space but perhaps is best used for keeping wine cool.

From the entrance hall, stairs lead to the first floor landing where there is a large storage cupboard and exposed floorboards lead through into all bedrooms on this floor. The master bedroom is set to the front of the property with a large bay window, range of built-in wardrobes and en-suite shower room with close coupled w.c., wash hand basin, shower unit with both wall mounted and waterfall shower attachments.

There are 2 further double bedrooms set to the rear of the property, both with their own en-suite shower rooms. In addition there is a 4th bedroom to the front of the property with a door out onto its own private balcony. There is also a family bathroom comprising w.c., pedestal wash hand basin and panelled bath with mixer shower attachment.

Stairs lead up to the second floor landing where there are 3 further bedrooms, 1 of which has an en-suite shower room. The 2nd bedroom is ideally used as an office whilst the remaining bedroom to the front has some areas of restricted head height and in our opinion would make an excellent reading room, snug or study. From the second floor landing there is also access to a shower room and large storage cupboard.

The rear garden can be accessed from both the lounge/dining room and the kitchen/breakfast room. There is a patio area immediately to the rear of the property which is an excellent spot for a table and chairs or entertaining space. The remainder of the garden is laid to lawn with some shrub and flower borders. The garden's westerly aspect makes it a real sun trap in the afternoon. The garden is totally enclosed and secure, there are walls to all sides. To the rear, double gates from Gleadowe Avenue lead to a further PARKING AREA and DOUBLE GARAGE with electric up and over door and solar panels on the roof. A personal door leads to the rear garden.
