Western Avenue, Branksome Park, Poole, Dorset
Property SummaryA highly individual house on a prominent corner plot in one of the area&x2019;s premier roads, namely Western Avenue.
The existing house is a real character property and has considerable charm. It sits amidst landscaped grounds which are very well established. However, Planning Permission was granted in July (Reference 2016 APP/16/00928/F) for alterations and extensions to improve the house and to bring it up to modern standards, with a layout more suited to contemporary living, but whilst maintaining much of the original character.
Proposed architectural features include prominent gables, bay windows and partly tile-hung elevations in a style which is Edwardian on one side with more contemporary elements on the other.
The resulting dwelling will include a fabulous kitchen/family room as well as four further receptions, not to mention five bedrooms, four bathrooms and a dedicated cinema room. As well as the kitchen family room other stand out features includes a beautiful orangery with bi-fold doors and a sumptuous master bedroom suite with a private sun terrace.
The grounds are largely level and well orientated for the sun, with a very impressive frontage to the road.
The current house is eminently suitable for immediate occupation and could be renovated without such extensive work.
The location is highly prestigious with some of the area&x2019;s most valuable homes changing hands in Western Avenue for as much as £4M. The shopping centres of Penn Hill and Canford Cliffs Village are easily accessible by car as are the rest of the area&x2019;s renowned leisure facilities including the Blue Flag beaches at the world famous Sandbanks Peninsula, Poole Harbour with its array of private yacht clubs and watersports facilities not to mention Parkstone Golf Club.
Interested parties are advised to seek advice concerning the cost of implementing the proposed scheme in conjunction with the necessary consents and permissions.
