Vendor Comments: - Constructed in 1937 on previously undeveloped land once part of the Cooper Dean and Iford estate, this home was commissioned for the builder's sister. Situated among the Colemore, Ropley, Warnford, and Holdenhurst areas, this property shares a sizable central parcel with another house. Encompassing nearly half an acre, the mature garden has remained largely unchanged since the current owners acquired it in 1961.

An extension was added to the living room in the early 1970s, followed by the installation of an en-suite to one of the master bedrooms in the 1980s. Many original late art-deco elements adorn both the interior and exterior, which have been meticulously refurbished with fresh paint and carpeting within the past year. The wooden windows and doors from the original 1937 construction remain intact, complemented by a chrome-plated solid brass art deco door and window fixtures. Noteworthy is the original art deco window on the half landing, featuring a striking monochrome leaded design with a sunburst pattern.

The lamp post at the driveway corner, acquired from Poole council in the early 1960s, was originally gas-powered but has since been converted to electricity. A double garage, sourced from 'Banbury Buildings in the late 1960s, boasts an inspection pit.

The owners' passion for gardening is evident in the grounds, which boast a diverse array of flowering shrubs and ornamental trees, including magnolias, azaleas, rhododendrons, camellias, and more. The perimeter was initially planted with birches, Lawson cypresses, red oaks, and Douglas firs, with several original trees still thriving, some protected by Tree Preservation Orders. Although the property does not own the bordering fences, privacy is ensured with screening hedging. Extensive lawns, a sizable vegetable plot, and numerous fruit trees complete the verdant landscape.
