Property Description

A magnificent DETACHED EDWARDIAN residence in the MEYRICK PARK conservation area close to the excellent amenities of Bournemouth centre, currently offered as FIVE APARTMENTS with superb OWNER’S ACCOMMODATION, all set in level gardens with IN & OUT DRIVE.

Summerlands was built in Queen Anne style in 1908 by scottish aristocracy as their holiday home, which explains the name of the house being Summerlands. It is constructed of brick elevations under a beautiful glazed tile roof and was built to an exceptionally high standard in the popular Edwardian era. The building has been sympathetically split into five apartments over three floors and is recognised as an HMO.

The property is situated in the popular Meyrick Park conservation area which is a quiet and peaceful location within a short walk of the delightful Park with its tree-lined walks and open playing field area, leading to municipal 18-hole Golf Course with it’s undulating fairways and well-kept greens. The Meyrick Park leisure club and gymnasium is also within the park with nearby tennis courts on Bourne Avenue. Bournemouth town centre is an easy stroll through Meyrick Park providing superb entertainment, shopping and recreational facilities, along with the recently constructed BH2 complex with cinema and quality restaurants, and the adjoining Pleasure Gardens lead, via the Bourne Stream, to the promenade and sandy beaches stretching seven miles from Poole Harbour in the west to Hengistbury Head in the east.

The apartments are split into two studio apartments on the ground floor, a first floor generously sized two bedroom apartment and a large top floor four bedroom apartment. The superb owners accommodation is spread over two floors, being ground and first floor, and comprises magnificent reception hall, sitting room with delightful bay window overlooking the gardens, large master bedroom with en-suite bathroom, beautifully fitted kitchen/dining room, conservatory, three further bedrooms, shower room, ground floor cloakroom/shower room. All of the accommodation is offered in excellent condition throughout.

The exterior of the property benefits from in and out driveway which in turn leads to single detached garage (which previously had planning consent for a 600 sq ft studio, however has now lapsed), delightful level gardens with large patio area which could benefit from future development potential.
