Five bedrooms and plenty of living space
Blucher House, Warfield Avenue, Waterlooville
It’s always best to be an optimist who believes that around every corner lies an opportunity.
And that’s especially so in the often frustrating search for a family home that’s spacious and convenient.
It could just be the time for you to take a trip to Waterlooville and make the turn from Stakes Hill Road into Warfield Avenue, for literally just around that corner is Blucher House, set back behind a pillared entrance and waiting to prove it’s the opportunity you seek.
The property, new on the market with Fine and Country Southern Hampshire, has the seemingly perfect combination of five bedrooms and plenty of living space across four separate rooms that make the most of its enveloping plot.
Blucher House itself has an interesting style, with a full-height projecting gable to one end and a catslide roof from the apex to below ground floor window height at the other.
It’s set back behind a paved drive with curved brick steps leading up to the front porch – if distinctive, but not outlandish, floats your boat then get ready to set sail on the next stage in your life!
To the left of the porch, two windows serve the kitchen/dining room, a fabulous L-shaped living space where the magnificently- equipped kitchen area has plenty of appliance space, allowing it to house a full-size range-style cooker.
Opening off the dining area is a family room, while on the opposite side of the entrance hall, which has an arch into the dining area, are the sitting room and separate drawing room, which has double doors into a conservatory on the south-western aspect of the house.
Upstairs there are four double bedrooms and a single plus a well-fitted family bathroom to complement the ground floor cloakroom.
But as well as its interior and three garden areas, Blucher House also appeals thanks to its location.
At the far end of the road, a right turn into Hulbert Road leads down to the A3M while both Waitrose and Asda in Waterlooville’s shopping area, plus many other big name and specialist retailers, are a short walk from the property’s front door.
