Simply stunning. Over 6,000 sq. ft, it is of one of the lightest properties in Branksome Park with fabulous content and the feel of a real family home with fun catered for: pool complex, bar, gym, cinema......

Sonata is a luxurious 3 storey home designed for privacy; so much so that it is difficult to imagine as you drive up the drive that a 6,000 sq. ft property awaits. The owner bought the house from new in 2009 and has spent over £600,000 making improvements, realising a both magnificent family home and a great place to entertain your family and friends.
Apart from the obvious attractions of the property which sits on a 23,000 sq. ft plot, the accommodation has been well considered, it includes 5 double bedrooms all on the same level with en suite bathrooms, a 1000 sq. ft award winning kitchen and family room, a quieter drawing room and a fitted study.

The Wow factor is provided by the swimming pool complex commissioned by the owner in 2012, and designed in such a way that the outside comes into the house as the kitchen opens out to the pool which opens out to the terrace which in turns opens into the bar. You probably need to see it to fully appreciate the effect.
Whilst in the middle of the tree lined Branksome Park, this property is the brightest we have encountered with the design incorporating lots of glass including pyramid skylights.
You approach the house via electric gates up a curved drive which secludes the property from the road. Lots of parking and a remote controlled double garage. Into the ground floor hall via the garage or the front door and the brightness of the property is enhanced by the glass staircase in front of you. Not to be forgotten on this level is a cinema room with Infocus projector and screen, a fully fitted gym, a sauna, a wet shower room and the utility room.
Up the glass stairs to the main living area with the study and the tranquil drawing room, you will be drawn to the 1000 sq ft award winning kitchen/family room which flows into the swimming pool, the wealth of terracing and the fully fitted bar. The owner used to have family and friends parties with a band playing on the terraces.
Again a continuation of the glass staircase to the 1st floor leads to 5 en suite double bedrooms, 2 of which with walk in wardrobes.
At the rear of the property, there are 2 levels of patio, a large lawn made private by the mature trees and shrubs.
Stunning, just stunning.
