We tend to avoid the the ‘money’ houses of Poole because, quite honestly, they’re not usually that interesting, despite the sky high price tags. But we like the look of this midcentury-inspired five-bedroom property in Branksome Park, Poole, Dorset.
The property is unashamedly inspired by 20th century builds in the US, with the likes ofLloyd Wright, Neutra and Elwood mentioned by the agent. But this is a modern house, not to mention a luxurious one. So it should be for the price.
It is spilt over 5 different levels, with what’s described as an ‘exceptional and contemporary’ specification to facilitate that luxury living. It’s also secluded from the affluent neighbours, which has to be a good thing if you don’t want to compare luxury cars on a daily basis.
The images perhaps give the best idea of what you get for your money, but as a brief overview, you’ll find outer and inner reception hallways, three reception rooms, a spacious kitchen/breakfast family room, a study/library, cloakroom, five double bedrooms (all en-suite), a cinema suite, study, triple integral garage and additional car port for three cars, a laundry room, a utility/boot room and a fifth double bedroom, which forms part of a self contained annexe.
Outside, you’l find an outdoor heated pool with ‘relaxing’ area, remote controlled electric gates, a long driveway, mature gardens, two separate terraces, an infrastructure for hot tubs, lighting and a fully automated irrigation system.
In a millionaire’s playground, this was never going to be a bargain. Instead, you’ll have to find £3,950,000.
