La Font is an exceptional house of inspiring vision incorporating an exquisite design and stylish finish throughout. The principal philosophy behind La Font was to create accommodation that both bathes in natural light and interacts seamlessly with its gardens and surrounding parkland setting. This is acheived through the continuous use of floor to ceiling glazed walls and bi folding doors that overlook the gardens and merge the exterior and interior spaces.
On the ground floor, a central staircase hall with a natural stone floor provides access to the principal reception rooms which include a spacious and stylish, yet practical kitchen & family room
with a vaulted ceiling, floating island units and informal seating and dining areas. The living room is a particularly nicely proportioned room with a feature fireplace. Like the kitchen / breakfast room, family room and dining room, the living room has direct access to the garden terrace via bi-folding doors. Also on the ground floor is a study and two double bedrooms, both with en suite facilities.
From the staircase hall, suspended polished walnut stairs with a glass balustrade lead down to the basement floor which features a generous cinema room complete with HD projector and integrated 5.1 surround sound system. The cinema room has a mini kitchen and bar featuring a microwave, fridge and sink. Also on this floor is a large laundry room with sink and drainer as well as space and plumbing for a washing machine and tumble dryer.
There is also a cloakroom on this floor as well as the boiler room and ample cupboard space for coats and a whole wall of shelved cupboards.
The master bedroom is on the first floor and has an exceptional double height ceiling and glazed wall facing the garden with bi-fold doors opening onto the balcony. There are extensive fitted wardrobes and an exquisitely appointed adjoining bath and shower room that also has access to the balcony. There are two further double bedrooms on this floor both of which have en-suite facilities.
The house has been finished to a high specification which includes underfloor heating and an air conditioning system. The property also features a Clipsal programmable lighting system that illuminates both house and garden and can be automated to provide a variety of lighting designs. There are also remote control window blinds to all of the rooms.
The property lies on one of the most sought after roads within the very heart of Branksome Park, the South Coast’s most exclusive residential estate. The bistros and wine bars of Canford Cliffs
village are located just over a mile away; Sandbanks Peninsula and Poole’s famous natural harbour are also close by and offer an array
of water sports facilities and yacht clubs. The property is ideally situated giving access to Bournemouth and Poole. Branksome train station, with its direct links to Southampton & London, is
also located just over one mile away. The continent is also easily reached either via ferry from Poole or with direct flights from Bournemouth Airport.
La Font is approached through remote controlled electric gates beyond which lies a generous drive providing access to the double garage and a large turning and parking area. The drive is bordered
to the south by landscaped lawn ‘islands’ that lead gently down towards the main portion of the garden.
The gardens and grounds extend to approximately 0.7 acres and the majority of outside space lies to the rear of the house. The principal reception rooms open onto a generous terrace that runs
along the rear of the house and overlooks the garden. Beyond the terrace is a hot tub and there is a further secluded courtyard garden that faces south and is ideal for impromptu meals. Also
accessed from the kitchen is a covered loggia perfect for enjoying the garden with a degree of protection from the elements. With its own separate access is a useful gardener’s cloakroom.
Approximately half the rear garden, all of which is level, is laid to lawn beyond which lies a lightly wooded area in keeping with the leafy enclave of Branksome Park.
