24 Stanfield Road, BH9


Bournemouth Echo:

This four-bedroom home on Stanfield Road in Winton is available for £250,000 - for the area this is an absolute steal as other four-bedroom properties on the street are valued in excess of £400,000. 

In need of a complete renovation both internally and externally the property sits on a good-sized lot boasting a front and rear garden plus courtyard. 

The old-school property desperately needs brining into the 21st century - it currently comes with an outside WC. 

Bournemouth Echo:

Boasting three reception rooms, a galley kitchen and four bedrooms this property has ample living space and with a full renovation it really could wow. 

The small galley kitchen could potentially be knocked through to one of the reception rooms to make the space much larger and more open-plan.

Just a stones through from Winton high street and Bournemouth University this versatile property could be a dream family home or buy-to-let property. 

The house is for sale through Town and Country Property Auctions on February 25.

Spring Road, Springbourne, BH1


Bournemouth Echo:

This lovely end-of-terrace house in Springbourne is on the market for just £209,950 - much lower than other three-bed properties on this street which are estimated to be around £244,000 according to Zoopla's sold house prices data.

In need of a complete renovation internally, this home needs some major TLC in every room.

Ideal for first-time buyers, with a little bit of love this property could be a gorgeous modern home that's the envy of everyone. 

Bournemouth Echo:

Arranged over three floors there are three double bedrooms, one reception room and a kitchen diner.

Offered with no onward chain this property would be ideal to flip for a small profit or turn into your dream home.
