Introduction


You approach down the wooded roads of Branksome Park. A previous home to J.R.R Tolkien, Branksome park is perfectly surrounded by Poole, Westbourne and Bournemouth.

The property was built circa 1912 and is still standing proudly to this day on Chester Road. The property boasts access from Eaton road via a path, in addition to the large driveway which is accessed from Chester road. The driveway would easily accommodate three vehicles, with the opportunity to further add by the front or rear gardens. Parking on road is also stress-free, with the possibility of parking on either Chester road or Eaton road thanks to the rear gate.

As you stand at the front of you are in awe of the property. As you approach the entrance to the side you are welcomes by a great oak door, enticing you further.

A porch area greets you as you enter the property whisking away your coat and shoes. The reception hall is the centralized area of the ground floor, with stain glass windows glistening in the light.

You are lured into the lounge by the heat of the fireplace. A vast feature window looks onto the rear garden, light filling every angle of the room.

The smell of breakfast brings you into the kitchen, the table prepared to perfection. The light once again pierces the room through double doors which lead into rear garden.

Tucked away in the corner of the vast space, you hear the noise of an acoustic guitar which leads you away into the drawing room.

Sitting next to the drawing room is the dining room with an additional open fireplace, perfect for the winter evening when rain is beating down on the large bay windows to the front of the property.

The property is boundless as you venture fourth up the grand staircase to the first of two floors.

You are greeted by a labyrinth of doors into many rooms.

The first floor contains 4 bedrooms facing the front and rear of the property. The bedroom to the rear has a large open window overlooking the garden. All bedrooms are provided with light from each rooms large double glazed windows, facing east and west.

A trace of the previous arrangement remains courtesy of the second kitchen within the property.

Two bathrooms sit either side of the landing, each providing a shower, w/c and wash basin.

We revisit the stairs for the final time venturing up to the second floor.

A brightly lit landing awaits with loft access and entrance to the final bedroom. A 27ft long bedroom sprawls atop the property, with light entering the room via the two roof windows which overlook the rear of the property.

Exiting the property to the rear we have a large patio area backing onto a path winding to the rear access point which leads to Eaton Road.

Location


The property is bordered by the woods of Branksome Chine Gardens. You can enjoy these all the way to Branksome Chine beach via the path which leads from the end of Chester road.

Heading west you will find Poole, housing the 2nd largest natural harbour in the world and haven to boats of all sizes with lots of yacht clubs, marinas and slipways. Continue further and you will find Studland and Swanage, as well as other natural wonders which make up the Jurassic Coast such as Old Harry Rocks, Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door.

Heading south will bring you to Canford Cliffs village, where you will find a Post Office, banks, a convenience store, coffee shops, a renowned hairdressers, a good selection of restaurants and 2 excellent Gastro Pubs at The Cliff and The Plantation.

Overlooking Sandbanks from above, Harbour Heights Hotel provides breathtaking views over the harbour. A short walk to the harbour edge and the famous Sandbanks beaches.

Lilliput Village provides another range of eateries from exotic eating at Koh Nai Thai Tapas, to the best sausage rolls in the universe at Mark Bennett's award winning artisan bakery,

Major supermarkets, Waitrose, M&S food, Tesco and Lidl are all within a couple of miles of Chester Road.

A short walk from the property leads you to Leicester Road, which houses tennis courts and green bowls. And of course golf at Parkstone Golf Club, ranked in the top 100 of UK courses.

Additional Information


This versatile accommodation offers so many options and tremendous potential to a new owner. Whilst the current owners use the property as a magnificent family home, the property was historically arranged as two self contained flats. With this in mind, we believe the property would be best used as one of the below options:

1) Continue to use the property as a magnificent 5 bedroom family home. There would be no work needed however a potential buyer may decide to convert the upstairs kitchen into a laundry room or an ensuite bathroom.

2) Reinstate the property into two self contained two bedroom flats. Minimal work would be required to do this. (The services to each flat (water, gas, electricity) remain separate.

3) Home & Income- reinstate the property back into two flats with a view to live in one of the two bedroom flats and rent out the other. Each flat would comfortably achieve 1600 pcm each.
