House in Poole, England, United Kingdom
Pineacre was built by local craftsmen approximately 19 years ago to a highly distinctive design with dropped eaves and a “pepper pot” turret. It has been the subject of a sympathetic extension by the current owner which enlarged the bedroom accommodation as well as the garage. It sits in a commanding position at the end of a long sweeping driveway, giving the house an imposing presence from the road.
The accommodation extends to over 5,000 sq ft and it includes some unique features. The Reception Hall has a stunning sweeping staircase and the Sitting Room has rather impressive dimensions of 27’8” x 16’8”. The Sun Room has a double height cathedral style ceiling which is most impressive too. The Kitchen/Diner features a hand painted fitted kitchen with a central island, a range cooker as well as a whole host of appliances including the usual mod cons. All of the principal reception rooms face south west, overlooking the manicured gardens.
The Master Bedroom is approached via a highly unusual landing which is galleried on both sides, which certainly makes for quite a sense of arrival. En-suite facilities include a bathroom and a dressing area alongside fitted wardrobes and a private sun balcony. The remaining guest bedrooms all have en-suites, making this ideal for large families or entertaining guests.
Pineacre is set within beautifully maintained grounds extending to around ¾ of an acre. The rear south west facing garden is secluded and incorporates a beautifully constructed feature rockery as well as outside lighting. There is a large paved patio adjoining the house and extensive lawns with a private decked area to one side incorporating a covered hot tub. The integral double garage provides space for up to three cars.
Bury Road is considered to be one of the premier roads in Branksome Park. It is relatively quiet yet it is within a short distance of the beach at Branksome Chine, a mere ¾ of a mile stroll via Branksome Chine and a short drive from Canford Cliffs Village.
Leisure amenities such as golf clubs, sailing clubs and, of course, the second largest natural harbour in the world, are all within easy reach by car.
