The first time on the market in 18 years. When they moved here, their daughters were teenagers and now they are mums in their own right. Now moving to spend half the year abroad. The owners says that she loves the peacefulness of the road, the ability to walk into Westbourne and the lovely walks in the chine.
This Edwardian era property is already a big house but there are 2 opportunities to extend further. Firstly the loft is conversion ready with windows already installed, including patio doors for a balcony with distant sea views. Secondly-please see detailed plans on the listing, there were approved plans for and extension to the garage to create a further family room.
Over the time the family have lived here, they have made gradual improvements. Block paving to the drive, mostly new windows 6 years ago, new boiler 5 years ago, installation of a sunken Jacuzzi hot tub and creating open plan kitchen/living space are just some of the examples.
Rosemount Road is a quiet cul de sac with a relatively unknown access to the chine and the beach. The property has a garage and large drive to achieve c.6+ vehicles. Inside there is a large hall and to your left, an ‘extra’ reception room which would make a perfect separate children’s lounge.
The main living space has been remodeled by the owners to create part open plan living. The living area has a sumptuous leaded light bay window with window seating that overlooks the rear garden. The kitchen is raised from the living area and has a central breakfast bar which seats 4 people.
Part open plan to the kitchen is a large conservatory which the owner uses as a dining area. You can tell the size because it has an 8 seater dining table plus a sunken jacuzzi hot tub.
The conservatory leads to a wonderful South facing garden with block paving, raised decking, a circular lawn and octagonal summerhouse.
On the first floor there are 5 bedrooms, 2 en suite and a family bathroom. The pick has got to be the en suite to bedroom 1 with its quadrant shower and raised designer bath.
From the landing on the first floor you can access the loft which is conversion ready and provides you with distant sea views.
Big house, big plot, lovely home.

The property sits in the best side of Rosemount Road which is a cul de sac ensuring a tranquil environment. At this end of the road is a path leading down through the chine, a beautiful dog walk in itself and only 5 minutes to the Alum Chine beach. Turn right and you have the perfect Sunday morning or summer's evening stroll along the beachfront or promenade to Sandbanks, taking in a coffee or something stronger at the Branksome Beach restaurant or Jazzy's cafe. There are 7 miles of these award winning beaches to explore. Even during the Bournemouth Air Show or all the summer fireworks, when parking for the beach is at premium you can stroll down trying to hide your secretly smug feeling.
Now you are in Sandbanks, you can look across the whole of Poole Harbour which is the 2nd biggest natural harbour in the world and a safe haven for both megayachts and pleasure boats with numerous marinas and moorings. Sailing events and clubs abound and this is one of the UK hubs for windsurfing and kitesurfing. You can see many a champion in these sports practicing in the harbour or off the beach. It is acclaimed as the one of the safest locations to teach children. And of course Poole Harbour is home to Sunseeker yachts and the RNLI. Why stop at Sandbanks? Catch the chain ferry to Studland, gaze at some of the extraordinary seafront properties, and then explore the Purbeck Hills and get up close and personal with the famous Old Harry Rocks. The Purbeck Hills shield the area and give Poole and Bournemouth its riviera microclimate.
While in Studland, it is treat to go to the Pig on the Beach restaurant and you mustn't miss the Beer Festival at the Bankes Arms. Whilst mixing the sea and dining, if you are a boat owner the trip to Yarmouth on the Isle of Wight is made even more worthwhile with a visit to Saltys Seafood Restaurant or the nearby ‘The Hut’ in Colwell Bay. Closer to home as we are talking eating, there are a fantastic range of restaurants and pubs close at hand to your home, none closer than The Edge, a penthouse restaurant in the clouds overlooking the sea just a couple of minutes walk away. In Canford Cliffs village, take in the ever popular Cliff gastro pub. The Plantation also in the village never disappoints and it takes dogs which is a serious plus for those of us who love our dogs and pints in equal measure. The exotic Koh Nai in Lilliput serves Thai Tapas. And for special occasions Rick Stein harbor front restaurant is not to be missed.
Westbourne, a suburb between Poole and Bournemouth is just a few minutes walk away and serves all your shopping needs as well as having an eclectic mix of coffee shops, bars and eateries. Westbourne has an M&S food store and both Tesco and Lidl are within walking distance.
I guess there is work too. Within a mile you are on the Wessex Way with at least dual carriageway to the New Forest, Southampton and the UK motorway network. Bournemouth International Airport is the fastest growing in the UK and Bournemouth Railway Station has direct routes to London and Manchester.
And school as well. We are happy to give you an insight into the schools but at Primary level Courthill 1st and St Michaels Primary are recommended. The Grammar schools of Poole and Bournemouth are exceptionally good. And the private schools of Dumpton and Castle Court at primary level and Canford, Bryanston and Clayesmore at secondary level all run bus services from near Rosemount Road.
