An incredibly popular and convenient location, a lovely private courtyard style garden and extensive parking, are just a few features of this imposing family home, that boasts far reaching sea views from the second floor.
Formerly a guest house (now de-registered) this fabulous property has been sympathetically restored back to one very large and versatile family home by the current owners. Throughout the restoration they have tried their very best to retain many of its gorgeous original features such as doors, fireplaces/surrounds, ornate cornicing and architraves and door furniture.
On entering the property, you are met by a wonderful large and welcoming reception hall with Arts & Crafts style winding staircase that takes you to the first floor accommodation.
The ground lies host to three grand formal reception rooms, all with their own fireplaces. The front reception room/dining room having a full height bay window, while the second reception room/sitting room opens directly out into the landscaped courtyard style garden. Reception three could be utilised as an additional bedroom/office/family room and has its own en-suite WC.
The kitchen is fitted in a range of modern shelved wall and floor mounted units with contrasting granite style worktops and space for range style cooker. Adjoining the kitchen is a very useful utility room and access to the garden.
The first floor accommodation comprises four double bedrooms, two with private en-suite facilities, one with an en-suite WC, the fourth currently being used as a sitting room with kitchenette area, making it ideal should you require annexe facilities.
A further returning staircase from the first floor landing takes you to the second floor accommodation where three further double bedrooms can be found. Two of the bedrooms have private en-suite facilities and one with the added benefit of a large dressing room/nursery. We believe this accommodation was originally 'staff quarters'. From this floor simply stunning far reaching sea and urban views can be found.
This fabulous family home further benefits from gas central heating, double glazing and enormous potential for anyone wanting to further improve it or run it as a small business (subject to the relevant permissions).
The tranquil gardens are enclosed by panel fencing and brick walling, offering unexpected levels of privacy and seclusion. They have been hard landscape for ease of maintenance and are a fantastic place to sit and unwind with a glass of wine at the end of the day. It has been thoughtfully planted to create privacy colour and texture all year round. There is also the added benefit of a large and very useful storage shed.
Front provides parking for numerous vehicles and is also hard landscaped.
Located approximately 400 metres away at Alum Chine are stunning sandy bathing beaches, tropical gardens and the highly regarded and popular Vesuvio Restaurant.
In an easterly direction Bournemouth is a fifteen minute walk or to the west is the world famous Sandbanks Peninsula. Westbourne is a twenty minute walk with many restaurants, wine bars and a variety of shops. There is a Victorian arcade containing the world's smallest cinema. Robert Louis Stevenson used to wander around here.
