TENURE: To be advised
A grand residence in a picturesque setting, just over 300 metres from the beautiful Branksome Beach. The property was designed by a local architect under the careful eye of the well-travelled owners, who have brought together ideas from around the world to create this stunning home.
Set on an elevated position in just over half an acre of well stocked manicured grounds with a sweeping drive, this truly impressive property was built with a money-no-object budget, around 1990. The architect responsible for bringing the owners dream to life designed the impressive 3915 sq ft home around the stunning and unique vaulted ceiling hexagonal reception hall, with its sweeping solid teak staircase, which greets you upon entering the property. From this central feature radiate the reception rooms, providing the perfect setting for comfortable living. The rooms flow into each other, with the study, sitting room, drawing room, dining room, and kitchen/breakfast room all enjoying sylvan views over the beautifully maintained grounds.
The current owner has remarked that she never tires of waking up in the spectacular double-aspect master bedroom, with its south-facing views over the grounds, and its walk-in wardrobe and luxury en-suite bathroom. The remainder of the well-proportioned three double bedrooms and spacious bathrooms are all accessed via a truly exceptional landing. The landing features a bridge with views down into the entrance atrium, where the large picture windows allow light to flood into the home.
The attention to detail continues to be felt in the well thought out, secluded grounds that surround and showcase the home. The drive winds its way towards the double garage which once accommodated a Rolls Royce and Mercedes Benz side-by-side and has a store room at the rear, as well as offering extensive parking and turning space.
The property retains its original fittings in bathrooms and kitchen and is offered in immaculate order throughout having been lovingly maintained by the present owner since new. The original specification includes extensive teak internal woodwork including an octagonal reception hall floor as well as all other floors, stairs, skirting, doors and frames; German UPVC double glazing with tilt and turn function; gas central heating primarily via radiators but underfloor in the drawing room; substantial ceiling coving with varying designs appropriate to each room; at least two windows in every room including several corner dual aspects; fitted wardrobes included.
This home occupies one of the best locations in Branksome Park with its proximity to the beach, and offers an incredible layout with the perfect opportunity for personalisation. The current owners enjoy being situated so close to the sea while, at the same time, feeling as though they are in the countryside due to the seclusion offered by the grounds, yet so convenient for amenities.
