The area where Bournemouth currently sits used to be heathland which was frequently used by smugglers and fishermen. It was then founded by Lewis Tregonwell in 1810 as a health resort. Bournemouth was given unexpected exposure as a health retreat when it featured in Augustus Granville’s The Spas of England (1841). The real uprising of Bournemouth took place in 1870 when it became an official town due to the new railway system. The town was originally part of Hampshire but a reorganisation of local governments in 1974 created a switch to Dorset for administration purposes. Yet, Bournemouth maintained its administration by a unitary authority. In April 2019, the unitary authority merged with Christchurch and Poole to create a new BCP authority - but remains part of Dorset County. In recent years, Bournemouth has tried, and continues to try, to gain city status.
The Bournemouth property market is vastly diverse which attracts an array of buyers from first-home buyers to forever-home seekers and property investors. The local market can appeal to those with different budgets and property ambitions with everything from studios and modern flats to semi-detached family homes, period detached homes and student housing.
Bournemouth, like many seaside locations, includes scores of period properties, including Victorian, Georgian and Edwardian homes. Period homes are among some of the best Bournemouth properties that hit the market, offering character and charm that isn’t as easy to come by in other locations. You’ll spot the popular Victorian properties on our listings due to their pitched roofs, wraparound porches and cylindrical turrets with gothic influences. If you prefer modern homes over period homes, you’ll still have plenty of options in Bournemouth. Many new developments have popped up in sought-after locations, creating urban enclaves of contemporary flats, townhouses and houses.
