Let's start with where the owners currently live which comprises 8 substantial rooms. The front reception room is nearly 6 metres long and would make an ideal separate children's living room and dining area. There is a utility room off of this reception which makes it ideal for their muddy sports kit. Off of this reception room is a magnificent kitchen, again almost 6 metres long with a stunning walnut top island and breakfast bar. The flooring is Karndean and appliances include a Neff induction hob, double oven, extractor fan, and Bosch dishwasher. There is also a secret cellar off of the kitchen. Overlooking the south facing back garden are 2 traditional, stylish, elegant reception rooms. Firstly the dining room which has original pine floorboards, original fireplace and hearth. Through double doors to the sitting room, with a log burner and a slate hearth with French doors to the garden. Both of these rooms are that rarity in that they are perfect summer and winter rooms. From the kitchen there is a hallway to the annexe. Ideal for a relative? it has a modern bathroom, a living room/dining area that is over 6 metres long with patio doors to the garden and 2 double bedrooms. The garden itself is part lawn, part patio with at the rear another raised patio. This is a serious sun trap. At the front of the property there is off road parking for 5 cars.
Also on the ground floor is an additional dining room/reception room with original pine floorboards off of a magnificent hallway leading to a stunning staircase with at the 1/2 landing, an original stained glass window. On the first and second floors are 6 ensuite bedrooms.

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 practising 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 Liiliput serves Thai Tapas. And for special occasions Rick Stein harbourfront 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.
This area is a lifestyle choice.
