5 Bedroom Detached House, Western Avenue, Branksome Park, Poole, Dorset, BH13
• In excess of 1.1 acres of mostly secluded grounds
• Prestigious Conservation Area
• Development potential (STP)
• Large 1980's style house of 4,700 sq ft
We believe the current property dates back to the 1980's and it incorporates flexible family four bedroom accommodation including a one bedroom annexe. There is also a detached garage with studio above. The current dwelling is a two storey chalet style house with brick elevations under a tiled roof. It has been updated from time to time but could currently benefit from refreshing. Nonetheless, the space on offer is extensive - approaching 4,500 sq ft - and many rooms have excellent views of the grounds.
Gardens and Grounds
The plot has an impressive frontage to Western Avenue and the approach to the house is via a tarmacadam driveway with a generous area for casual parking. There is over an acre of mostly secluded grounds with a simply stunning rear garden incorporating an outdoor pool with surrounding terracing (currently decommissioned) extensive lawn and large ornamental pond plus a woodland walk to the far end. This forms a unique and impressive sylvan setting rendering the plot of potential interest to those seeking to re-model or re-develop, subject to the necessary consents which cannot be guaranteed. Properties with potential to re-develop in prestigious roads such as Western Avenue have become increasingly rare over the years as many of the pre-war properties are protected. Level plots in such sought after locations are an even rarer commodity. The Branksome Park Conservation Area Character Appraisal and Management Plan Supplementary Planning Guidance 2006 (available on line from the Borough of Poole website) does not include 11 Western Avenue as a positive contributor on the Key Buildings Table 1. Naturally intending purchasers should make the necessary enquiries in order to satisfy themselves as the property's suitability for re-development and take professional advice where appropriate.
The property lies within the very heart of Branksome Park, the South Coast's most exclusive residential estate. The bistros and wine bars of Canford Cliffs village are located just over a mile away; Sandbanks Peninsula and Poole's famous natural harbour are also close by and offer an array of water sports facilities and yacht clubs. The property is ideally situated giving access to Bournemouth and Poole. Branksome train station, with its direct links to Southampton & London, is also located just over one mile away making it an ideal place to own a second home.
