Property Ref: 2501
<b>Five bedrooms detached house, close to sandy Blue Flag beach and clifftop nature reserve. This spacious 1920’s detached house has five bedrooms, three reception rooms, a private secluded garden, garage and off-street parking.</b>
It is in an excellent location, with sea views. It is very close to the cliff top (about 2 minutes walk) with its nature reserve, views to the Isle of Wight and Purbeck Hills, and paths leading to the Blue Flag sandy beach. The property is situated in the highly desirable Portman Estate, which is a very pleasant leafy residential area in Southbourne, Bournemouth.
Accommodation on the ground floor includes a lobby leading to a spacious hallway, two large reception rooms, dining room, kitchen with walk-in pantry, utility room, and WC. On the first floor, there are five bedrooms, a family bathroom, and separate WC. The house has double glazing and gas central heating (condensing boiler and hot water cylinder fitted 2008). The roof was renewed in 2014, and the plumbing and electrics updated in 2015. The house has a variety of original features, including stone fireplace, parquet flooring, quarry tiles, picture rails, and original internal doors. The house would benefit from some further personalization, e.g. kitchen. It also has a large loft which could be converted subject to planning permission.
The property is on a substantial corner plot (about 125 feet x 50 feet), with gardens on three sides of the house. The main garden is very private and secluded, with paved patio, flower beds, and lawn. There are a conservatory and detached garage (with up-and-over door, separate door to garden, window, and power), with a driveway providing off-road parking.
Southbourne is a very pleasant suburb of Bournemouth. The main street is about 8 minutes walk away and has a variety of shops, including independent local traders, supermarkets, cafes, restaurants, and pubs. Southbourne is well served by buses to multiple destinations including Bournemouth town center (about 3 miles away) and Christchurch (about 2 miles away). The nearest railway station, Pokesdown, is approximately 16 minutes walk and provides a direct line to London Waterloo in under 2 hours. Bournemouth and Christchurch Railway stations are also within easy reach.
The main beach and its promenade are accessible within a few minutes by footpaths and a nearby lift. The beach is many miles long, linking Southbourne and Bournemouth, which is regarded as Britain’s best beach, and Europe’s fifth best beach, by Tripadvisor (2018). Southbourne Overcliff has a child play area and café, and it has a nature reserve that is a Site of Nature Conservation Interest. This reserve is a long strip of grassy shrubland, with footpaths overlooking the sea. The reserve is home to several rare species of plants and animals. The magnificent views stretch from Hengistbury Head, the Needles, Isle of Wight, to the Purbeck Hills and Poole Harbour. Christchurch is a 10-minute drive and its harbor provides sheltered mooring and sailing. The New Forest is a 20-minute drive away. A 25-minute drive to the West leads to Poole Harbour, with its many sailing facilities, providing a gateway to various nature reserves in Studland and the Purbeck Heritage Coast.
