Set behind an impressive frontage Three Gates is a magnificent Victorian detached residence, built circa 1905 offering beautifully appointed accommodation arranged over three floors, extending to approximately 6872 sq.ft. including an adjoining one bedroom annex.

Branksome Park is an exclusive area of Poole nestled between Poole and Bournemouth with Canford Cliffs and Westbourne village centres a short distance away. All homes within Branksome Park have a minimum plot size of 1/4 acre with a variety of contemporary and traditional homes.

Three Gates is approached via double electric gates leading to a large paved driveway providing ample parking. Upon entering the property via the original grand entrance with feature stained glass windows, you are greeted by an impressive reception hall with adjoining lounge area. The main formal drawing room has a welcoming wood burning stove and detailed cornicing incorporating down lighting. There are two further reception rooms currently being used as a formal dining room and family room. The fully equipped kitchen/breakfast room presents an extensive quality range of units with a central island incorporating a sociable breakfast bar. In addition there is a guest cloakroom, cloaks storage cupboard, a large utility/boot room and useful cellar. From the reception hall there is a grand winding staircase passing an original stained glass window to the first floor landing.

The master bedroom suite has an outstanding en-suite bathroom with high quality fittings including an attractive slipper bath and walk in shower. There is also a large walk in wardrobe and an adjoining snug (potential seventh bedroom with direct landing access). On the first floor there are three further double bedrooms and two luxury en-suite bath/shower rooms.
