Property description

A grand, stylish 5 double bedroom family home. Immaculately kept with a perfect mix of modern and classic. Over 3600 sq ft of property with 5 reception rooms, 5 bathrooms, off road parking for 4 cars and a private South facing garden. The property is a 5 minute stroll through the chine to the beach.
The property is over 3 floors in a perfect quiet cul-de-sac location close to the beach, ideal for growing children. Both parents and children have their own space and peace due to the wonderful flow of the house and the choice of reception rooms. Yet all come together in the 40ft long kitchen/breakfast room/casual dining.
There is so much that is special about this property that it is hard what to omit in our descriptions but highlights must be the sheer size and height of each of the rooms, the engineered oak throughout most of the ground floor, the original floorboards in the dining room, the stunning kitchen in black granite, the main bedroom suite with dressing room and ensuite and the magnificent staircase with original stained glass ½ landing window, the fully fitted study. In the summer the focal point is the garden room with its stone tiled floors, skylight and bi fold and tri fold doors that open out so that you feel you are already in the garden.

In winter the house is just as perfect with a new log burner in the living room and an open fire in the dining room.

The 1st floor has the first 3 bedrooms, the dressing room and 3 bathrooms, 2 ensuite. The 2nd floor has 2 further ensuite bedrooms but one of which is really a studio retreat and this floor would make ideal teenager space or a relative's annexe.

Much of the property has been renovated over the last 10 years: Complete new roof, new windows to the back of the house to ground and first floor level, plantation shutters also at ground and first floor level, 3 boilers with temperature controls relevant to each floor, new log burner, new summerhouse, recent redecoration.

There is so much to see in this wonderful property.

The property sits towards the end of Rosemount Road which is a cul de sac ensuring a tranquil environment. At this end of the road is a path leading down through the chine, a beautiful dog walk in itself and only 5 minutes to the Alum Chine beach. Turn right and you have the perfect Sunday morning or summer's evening stroll along the beachfront or promenade to Sandbanks, taking in a coffee or something stronger at the Branksome Beach restaurant or Jazzy's cafe. There are 7 miles of these award-winning beaches to explore. Even during the Bournemouth Air Show or all the summer fireworks, when parking for the beach is at premium you can stroll down trying to hide your secretly smug feeling.
Now you are in Sandbanks, you can look across the whole of Poole Harbour which is the 2nd biggest natural harbour in the world and a safe haven for both mega yachts and pleasure boats with numerous marinas and moorings. Sailing events and clubs abound and this is one of the UK hubs for windsurfing and kitesurfing. You can see many a champion in these sports practicing in the harbour or off the beach. It is acclaimed as the one of the safest locations to teach children. And of course, Poole Harbour is home to Sunseeker yachts and the rnli. Why stop at Sandbanks? Catch the chain ferry to Studland, gaze at some of the extraordinary seafront properties, and then explore the Purbeck Hills and get up close and personal with the famous Old Harry Rocks. The Purbeck Hills shield the area and give Poole and Bournemouth its Riviera microclimate.

While in Studland, it is treat to go to the Pig on the Beach restaurant and you mustn't miss the Beer Festival at the Bankes Arms. Whilst mixing the sea and dining, if you are a boat owner the trip to Yarmouth on the Isle of Wight is made even more worthwhile with a visit to Saltys Seafood Restaurant. Closer to home as we are talking eating, there are a fantastic range of restaurants and pubs close at hand to your home, none closer than The Edge, a penthouse restaurant in the clouds overlooking the sea just a couple of minutes' walk away. In Canford Cliffs village, take in the ever-popular Cliff gastro pub. The Plantation also in the village never disappoints and it takes dogs which is a serious plus for those of us who love our dogs and pints in equal measure. The exotic Koh Nai in Liiliput serves Thai Tapas. And for special occasions Rick Stein harbour front restaurant is not to be missed.
Westbourne, a suburb between Poole and Bournemouth is just a few minutes' walk away and serves all your shopping needs as well as having an eclectic mix of coffee shops, bars and eateries. Westbourne has an M&S food store and both Tesco and Lidl are within walking distance.

I guess there is work too. Within a mile you are on the Wessex Way with at least dual carriageway to the New Forest, Southampton and the UK motorway network. Bournemouth International Airport is the fastest growing in the UK and Bournemouth Railway Station has direct routes to London and Manchester.
And school as well. We are happy to give you an insight into the schools but at Primary level Courthill 1st and St Michaels Primary are recommended. The Grammar schools of Poole and Bournemouth are exceptionally good. And the private schools of Dumpton and Castle Court at primary level and Canford, Bryanston and Clayesmore at secondary level all run bus services from near Rosemount Road.
