Tenure: Freehold

Built in 2010 and significantly improved by the current owners, this superb house perfectly combines classical Georgian proportions with a high quality contemporary finish in a traditional style. High ceilings and large sash windows maximise the feeling of space and take full advantage of the glorious views across the landscaped gardens and manicured greens of the golf course away and below to the south west.

The house has brick elevations and dressed stone lintels and sills to the windows. Of particular note is the superb orangery that was recently added by the current owners and is ideally positioned to enjoy the best views from the house as well as providing a comfortable reception room.

The house is beautifully finished throughout with polished pale granite and marble flooring in the hall with solid American Oak doors, architraves and skirting. All rooms have classic Georgian style cornices yet this traditional elegance is supported throughout by underfloor heating, a lighting system which can be programmed and zoned room by room. The principal reception rooms, and bedrooms are also air conditioned. There is also a lift which goes from a room adjacent to the kitchen on the ground floor to a secondary hall on the first floor.

The front door opens to an entrance hall complete with a large cloak and boot room. Beyond lies an impressive circular staircase hall with galleried landing and a two storey glazed wall overlooking a peaceful terrace with an octagonal Koi pond. The principal reception rooms flow seamlessly from the staircase hall with doors leading to the drawing room, dining room, and kitchen / breakfast room. A secondary hall leads to the sitting room and study, beyond which lies the service wing which accommodates the utility room, boiler room, as well as access to the garages.

As well as having individual access from the hall, the drawing room, dining room and kitchen / breakfast room all have interconnecting doors making the accommodation especially flexible. In addition, the exquisite orangery is accessible from both the kitchen / breakfast room and the drawing room.

The drawing room is a deeply impressive room steeped in Georgian elegance with a large fireplace with a marble overmantle surrounding a wood burning stove providing a central focal point. Glazed doors from the drawing room open onto the dining room and orangery allowing the space to be expanded significantly when entertaining.

The kitchen / breakfast room forms the heart of the house and is beautifully fitted with Miele appliances including twin ovens and a microwave. There is a central island complete with sink and built in dishwasher as well as additional storage. There are also further built in display and storage cabinets flanking a large bay window which provides the ideal space for a dining table.

From this area there is also access to the Orangery which provides a wonderful room from which to enjoy the exceptional views all year round. The orangery has large glazed windows as well as French windows on three sides which open onto the garden and provide access to the terrace which also has superb views.

Also on the ground floor is a generous sitting room, a study and generous utility room. There are also two cloakrooms with w.c. on the ground floor.

On the first floor, there are four double bedrooms, each of which have en suite facilities and are all air conditioned. The master bedroom has extensive built in cupboards as well as a large dressing room with an adjoining shower and bathroom.

There is a secondary hall on the first floor which provides access to the lift as well as the staircase to the second floor.

On the second floor are two further bedrooms, both with en-suite bathrooms. There is also a large media room which is wired for television and a built in surround sound system. Beyond the media room lies the snooker room and the combination of these spaces provides a fantastic recreational space. The bathroom for Bedroom 6 also has a separate door so that it can be accessed from the landing.


The house occupies a peaceful and private position at the end of Haig Avenue, a highly sought after no through road just west of Branksome Park. The house is less than a mile from the independent shops, bars and restaurants of Canford Cliffs. The area is renowned for its riviera lifestyle with superb sandy beaches and a multitude of water sports.

The centres of Poole and Bournemouth are also nearby and offer a wider range of recreational amenities, shops and entertainments. The station offers direct rail services to London Waterloo in around two hours and Bournemouth Airport flies to many European destinations.


The house is approached through electric gates leading to a long drive that leads to the house and is flanked by lawns on either side. There is a large turning and parking area adjacent to the garage block.

The gardens extend, in total, to approximately 0.65 acres and continue to the south west of the house incorporating a large terrace and further sloping ornamental gardens from which there are far reaching views.

Integral to the house is a very impressive garage block which provides space for four cars. There are four individual garage doors, each of which is electrically operated and there is also a boarded loft space above the garage, ideal for storage.
