Property Summary

Ideal as a starter home with bags of potential or as a buy-to-let investment, this apartment is just a couple of kilometres from the university as well as the city centre and some of the most pleasant sandy beaches on the south coast.

Within easy reach of local amenities and with off-road parking and secure storage for bicycles, the property would suit a first-time buyer but could be equally appealing to students looking for digs to let.

To the north-east of the city centre and to the east of the main university campus, Orcheston Road is a residential street mostly comprising two-storey, brick-built homes, many of which have since been converted into apartments. Regular bus services to Strouden, Aldemay, Talbot Heath and Wallisdown run from nearby Bennett Road while amenities on Charminster Road no more than 500m from the flat include The Richmond pub; a convenience store and off licence; a selection of takeaways; a post office; a pharmacy; and a hairdressers. An Aldi, a Tesco Express and a Co-op food store are also less than a kilometre away while Bournemouth Railway Station is just a little further.

Separated from the road by a brick-built wall, there are a few shrubs and bedding plants offer some greenery while a path leads around side of the property which gives access to the kitchen. A head-high wrought-iron gate allows access to the rear of the house where a timber outbuilding, a lockable bike store and a metal shed are located in a neat and tidy enclosed, private courtyard garden bordered by raised timber-edged flower beds. An external glass-panelled UPVc door allows access to the kitchen.

The front door opens onto a reception hall with storage cupboards to the right and internal doors leading to the lounge and the double bedroom; a sliding door also opens onto the kitchen, which is fitted with an easy-to-clean laminate floor.
Equipped with a four-ring gas hob and oven with an eye-level grill and a washing machine. Base and wall units in white are installed above and below solid wood work tops while a stainless steel sink with drainer and separate hot and cold taps can be found adjacent to the door to the rear garden.

The lounge is carpeted and includes a wood-effect mantelpiece around red, heat-resistant tiles framing a fireplace fitted with a gas fire. The wrought-iron, ceiling-mounted light fitting is equipped with low energy lighting - repeated through the rest of the property – while a TV point is located to the right of the large bay window which overlooks the front of the house.

The property has virgin broadband readily available.

The bedroom overlooks the rear and has a wood laminate floor and a wall-mounted radiator with individual controls to regulate heat. The shower room includes a dual-flush WC, pedestal sink and fully-tiled shower cubicle with electric power shower.

Also equipped with a recent fitted programmable gas-fired central heating system with a separate thermostat and with double gazing, the property has been awarded a D rating on its EPC.
