Orcheston House was fully refurbished in 2009 with each bedroom having brand new furniture and its own shower and sink and to keep it looking nice and crisp we have painted throughout every two years since including the Summer of 2014. It has a large Kitchen Diner with 50" wall mounted Plasma and seating up to 8 people around the table and 6 on the suite.
Through the French doors of the diner the rear of the property has a large sunny garden ideal for relaxing and BBQ's after a day at the beach!
Please note Orcheston House has 3 ground floor bedrooms.
The house is situated within 20 minutes walk of the Blue Flag beaches of Bournemouth and 15 minutes drive of the award winning exclusive beaches of Sandbanks.
This makes it an ideal home for exploring the south with the towns of Bournemouth, Poole, Christchurch and the New Forest accessible for great day trips.
Facilities within walking distance include a cash point, Tesco Express, various bars and restaurants and just at the end of the road a convenience store and off licence.
The house is located in a quiet residential road.
