    About this property

    • 7 St Anthony's Road was built in 1908 and is an Edwardian house of character, built in Queen Anne style and within the Saints conservation area of Bournemouth. The property was built as part of the ‘Leven Estate' and the front elevation consists of attractive red facing brick with quoined and mullioned stone window surrounds to timber sash windows. It has symmetrical tile hung gables and projecting pitched roof. Other significant features on the south west elevation and southern corner include an oriel window and stone dressed curved bay.

      The property has been within the vendor's ownership for over thirty four years and has been sympathetically converted to five apartments.

      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 owner's accommodation is arranged over two floors and comprises of an impressive reception hall, sitting room with oriel bay window, with views across the garden. In addition to this there is a large master bedroom with en suite bathroom and a door that leads out on to the rear garden, beautifully fitted kitchen/dining room, conservatory, three further bedrooms, shower room, ground floor cloakroom/shower room.

      The vast majority of rooms still retain original Edwardian fireplaces, there is also a cellar and the entire property is fitted with analogue addressable fire alarm system and external CCTV.

      There is a single storey garage to the eastern elevation which was built we believe in the 1920's. This has lapsed planning consent which we detail below:-

      • Demolition of the existing garage and erection of an indoor swimming pool – Planning Granted 14/08/14
      • Demolition of the existing garage and alterations and single storey extension to the ground floor flat – Planning Granted 31/07/15

      The opportunity exists therefore to re-apply for one of these lapsed consents or alternatively there is scope to re-design some further accommodation.

      Four apartments are currently let out to various tenant's on AST agreements. We understand current income being generated by the owner before costs etc is in the order of £35,000 per annum. The opportunity exists therefore in our opinion to either continue with this HMO arrangement, or instead (STP) for an owner operator to utilise the building on short-term holiday lets. Alternatively the building could very easily be converted back into one large family residence.

    As soon as I walked in I was completely amazed by all of the original features, the ceiling heights and grandeur. They simple don't make them like this anymore.
