Full description

Tenure: Freehold

We believe the current property dates back to the 1980's and it incorporates flexible four / five bedroom accommodation. There is also a one bedroom self contained annexe on the ground floor which along with a separate studio apartment could generate a useful rental income. The current dwelling is a two storey chalet style house with brick elevations under a tiled roof and while it is well presented, there remains potential for further improvement or redevelopment. The main house offers approximately 4,500 sq ft of accommodation and many rooms have excellent views over the beautiful gardens and grounds.


The property lies within the very heart of Branksome Park, the South Coast's most exclusive residential estate. The bistros and wine bars of Canford Cliffs village are located just over a mile away; Sandbanks Peninsula and Poole's famous natural harbour are also close by and offer an array of water sports facilities and yacht clubs. The property is ideally situated giving access to Bournemouth and Poole. Branksome train station, with its direct links to Southampton & London, is also located just over one mile away making it an ideal place to own either a main or second home.


The plot has an impressive frontage to Western Avenue and the approach to the house is via a tarmacadam driveway with a generous area for casual parking adjacent to the three garages.

There is over an acre of mostly secluded grounds with a simply stunning rear garden incorporating an outdoor pool with surrounding terracing (currently decommissioned) extensive lawn and large ornamental pond plus a woodland walk to the far end. This forms a unique and impressive sylvan setting rendering the plot of potential interest to those seeking to re-model or re-develop, subject to the necessary consents which cannot be guaranteed.

Properties with potential to re-develop in prestigious roads such as Western Avenue have become increasingly rare over the years as many of the pre-war properties are protected. Level plots in such sought after locations are an even rarer commodity. The Branksome Park Conservation Area Character Appraisal and Management Plan Supplementary Planning Guidance 2006 (available on line from the Borough of Poole website) does not include 11 Western Avenue as a positive contributor on the Key Buildings Table 1. Naturally, intending purchasers should make the necessary enquiries in order to satisfy themselves as to the property's suitability for re-development, and take professional advice where appropriate.
