Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Built in 1890, this wonderful Victorian residence has been home for the current family for 63 years and offers 5 double bedrooms, 4 reception rooms, 2 bathrooms and a large double garage. This lovely property is set on a corner plot with gardens that sweep around the front and side and currently offers fantastic versatility and potential for improvement. Forest Road is located less than a mile away from Westbourne and only ½ a mile from Branksome Beach.
The property was originally owned by a Captain in the Merchant Navy and was one of the first homes to be built in Forest Road. In the late 1940’s, the property was converted into 2 apartments and remained that way until 25 years ago when the current owner (who has resided on the ground floor for 63 years) bought the first floor flat and converted the property back into a house. This home is incredibly versatile as it still benefits from 2 separate entrances and two kitchens, so could be converted back into apartments if so desired. The owner also considered converting the loft to create a maisonette and sell it or rent it out for extra income. Since owning the property, the owner has replaced all the windows whilst still retaining the character look, gas central heating has been installed and a double garage has been built measuring 25ft x 22ft.
Branksome Park is one of Poole’s most affluent areas alongside Sandbanks and Canford Cliffs. It is on the border of Poole with Bournemouth on the other side of the Avenue. The property is less than a mile from the shopping area of Westbourne and approximately half a mile from the beach at the bottom of The Avenue. Branksome Chine is just a few hundred yards away, which provides a delightful sylvan walk to the sandy bathing beaches that the area is famous for. Southampton is 35 miles away. London is approximately 110 miles away. Bournemouth International Airport is approximately 7 miles away.
