Arriving through the main gated entrance, you're treated to a sense of delight at this pretty and impressive home. A spacious entrance hall presents you with a sense of the property's magnificent detail, including a seamless Polyurethane floor throughout the central ground floor, zoned by authentic Crittall Windows & Doors, giving an open yet practical use of the spaces. To the right of the entrance is a spacious living room complemented by wood flooring and a wall of mullion windows drawing in the morning sun. Adjacent is a luxury state-of-the-art Media room with a 4K ceiling projector, drop down screen and full surround sound.
As the hallway draws you through to the west side of the house, you can't help but run your hand over the impressive and skilfully crafted black walnut & copper spindle 'secondary' staircase. Turning into the main kitchen area, the summer dining room at the rear of the property features 2-sides of bi-fold doors that open onto the garden patio giving both inside and alfresco dining options. The super stylish artisan Smallbone kitchen is true to its promise "Born from Passion, defined by Craft" and presents a mix of visually and tactilely pleasing finishes - all uniquely different but together a perfect blend. The talent for interior design continues through another set of Crittall doors into the 'winter' dining room, which is open plan with a second lounge. Sofas feature around a fireplace showcasing stained glass windows either side, perfect for retiring to after dinner. Two sets of doors lead directly out onto the south side of the garden giving lovely green vistas as you dine and relax. A separate catering kitchen, utility room, downstairs shower room and spacious office boasting a large bay window and original herringbone parquet floor, completes the ground floor.
Modern Regency paneling lines the main staircase to the upper two floors where there are 5 spacious bedroom suites, all featuring luxury furnishings and ensuite bathrooms. The principal bedroom and adjacent dressing room comprises a huge 42 sq.m. Textured wallpaper feature in this and many other rooms adding to the opulence of the home. An original 'staff' staircase leads up to a vaulted gallery / studio / games room running the full length of the house. Above the double garage is a separate living Annex with its own entrance, kitchenette and bathroom. Please note there is an additional Band A council tax charge for the Annex.
The Avenue is one of the most historic roads in Branksome Park, originally forming the driveway to the renowned Branksome Towers Hotel and the 12-mile stretch of golden sands. Its tree-lined vista still remains and nowadays is the main route between the popular village of Westbourne (offering restaurants, pubs, boutique retail and an M&S Food hall) and the award-winning, blue-flag beaches. Branksome Chine Beach is less than 500m (approx. 5 mins walk) from the property and offers fabulous facilities with two dining options including Rockwater champagne & seafood bar, toilets, car park, RNLI lifeguard station and BBQs for public use. From this point, it's a dog-friendly beach to the east, and a dog-free beach to the west giving the best of all options.
