Street View

Much of Branksome Park falls within conservation areas as well as low density housing areas. Undoubtedly one of the most exclusive enclaves of Poole, it is known for its luxury houses set in spacious grounds and for its exclusive apartment blocks which are largely concentrated in specific areas East & West of The Avenue.

Sitting approximately midway between the town centres of Poole and Bournemouth it is ideally located to take full advantage of the areas renowned shopping and leisure facilities such as the blue flag beaches at Branksome Chine and the world famous Sandbanks Peninsula Road communications are good and both Bournemouth and Poole enjoy main line Railway stations with services to Southampton and London.

Highgate House is a particularly impressive gentleman’s residence built several years ago to exacting standards and a high specification. It sits on a superb plot, in excess of 1 acre, and benefits from a carriage driveway approached through remote controlled gates. The driveway leads to a paved courtyard at the front of the house with generous space for casual parking and vehicle turning and access to the triple garage.

The house itself features an impressive entrance hall with a double height galleried landing and a bespoke staircase with contemporary ash balustrade and handrail and discrete night lighting to the circular newels. The dining area is open plan from the entrance hall and the french doors give an excellent view of the rear patio and well tended rolling lawns, in the rear gardens.

The kitchen area is of particular note, being some 35’ in length and incorporating informal dining and informal living areas. The Rational kitchen features corian tops, a centre island, an american style fridge/freezer and appliances by Gaggenau (amongst others).

The living room is also particularly spacious, being some 31’ in length, features a natural stone fireplace with a gas flame effect fire and also benefits from access to a beautiful sun room with extensive views of the garden.

The first floor boasts five principal bedrooms, three of which are ensuite. The master suite benefits from walk-in wardrobe, a private balcony and a particularly spacious en-suite shower room with twin hand basins.

The top floor of the house features a rather impressive 37’ attic room (partially into the eaves) which could be suitable for a number of uses including a games room, media room, etc.

The specification includes concrete floors and underfloor gas fired central heating to the majority (but not all) of the house, double glazing, smooth ceilings with downlights and sanitary wear by Duravit and Villeroy & Boch amongst others.

Plots of this quality are now a rare commodity within the Branksome Park Conservation Area as the majority of pre-war houses are protected from redevelopment. This very large family home therefore offers exceptional value for money, in our opinion, and viewing (by appointment only) is strongly advised through the Sole Agents.
