Brownsea View Avenue, Lilliput, Poole
1 Reception Rooms
A rare opportunity to purchase an older, but well-constructed, three double bedroom detached bungalow in the much sought after location of Lilliput. Boasting much privacy from its elevated west-facing position with bright, well-established garden areas front and back, it offers huge potential for a retired couple or younger family with easy strolls down to the local shops, beaches and to Bournemouth Collegiate, Lilliput and Baden Powell Schools via footpaths.

With internal measurements approx. 170 sq.m on a plot size of approx. 1,000 sq.m, there is scope (STPP) to reconfigure or refurbish into a beautiful family home, already with integrated double garage and off-road parking. This well-presented bungalow is situated on an elevated plot at the top of Brownsea View Avenue (which is not a thoroughfare, so presents a quiet location). With its wide west-facing frontage over a double garage, with a choice of steps or slope to access the property, you are immediately aware of the spaciousness of this prominent plot. The property is incredibly bright, thanks to the sun beaming in through the south-facing garden room that connects to the kitchen. The sun continues to shine over the terrace all day, travelling around to the front west-facing lounge-diner, from where you can enjoy some breath-taking sunsets. It has a fully surrounding, low-maintenance terrace bordered by shrubs and trees, ideal for relaxing and entertaining in a private location. The tiered rear garden also offers seclusion, with a garden shed, large green house, and mature bushes and seasonal shrubs that add ever-changing perennial colours within the garden.
Once inside, the spacious entrance hall fans towards the lounge-diner, the master en-suite bedroom and the hall leading to the two other double bedrooms, two further bathrooms and spacious kitchen. The open plan lounge-diner has large picture windows with a hint of a harbour view. It features a stone fire surround, currently housing a coal and flame effect gas fire. The dining area can cater for eight to ten and is isolated from the lounge by an archway. The kitchen is fitted with a range of floor and wall mounted units and includes integrated appliances, which leads through to the fully glazed garden-breakfast room, enjoying direct access to the paved terrace and garden. The main bedroom has an en-suite bathroom, with corner spa bath, bidet, WC and vanity unit. Both the principal and bedroom three have fitted wardrobes and bedroom two has direct access to the rear garden, creating versatility of use.
The location is quiet and couldn’t be better located for local amenities. The beautiful award-winning Sandbanks sandy beach is only a short drive or bike ride away (a mile and a half). There are many beautiful viewpoints near the property overlooking Poole Harbour and Brownsea Island, and as far as Old Harry Rocks and the Purbecks. The Sandbanks Chain Ferry crosses the short stretch of water across to the Purbecks, giving access to Studland, Swanage, Corfe Castle and the rest of the magnificent Jurassic coastline. There is a wealth of water sports activities locally and the area is perfect for wind surfing and paddle boarding in Poole Harbour. There is also a selection of yacht clubs and marinas nearby. The local transport links to Bournemouth and Poole are excellent, just over one mile away is Parkstone Rail Station with a direct line to both Weymouth and London Waterloo which is approx. 2 hours. Bournemouth International Airport is only twenty-minutes away and London by car is approx. two hours via the M27 and M3.
Lilliput is located on Sandbanks Road and is home to the award-winning Mark Bennett’s Bakery, Rockets and Rascals bike and coffee shop as well as Koh Thai and a local Co-op. Rated as outstanding by Ofsted, Lilliput infant school is next to the church of Holy Angels on Lilliput Road and draws many young families to the area.
