A little bit of history...
Balcombe Breeze sits within the Branksome Park Estate an exclusive area of some 360 acres formerly heathland and wooded ravines. The area was purchased by the Bruce family in the 1800s and it is believed named Branksome Park after the setting of Sir Walter Scott's 1805 poem The Lay of the Last Minstrel'. After the estate was sold to the Bury family in 1870 it was divided up into plots for the building of large villas in spacious grounds. The freehold to Balcombe Breeze was conveyed in July 1887 and the Victorian Villa known as Basing House was erected on the site soon afterwards.
Notable residents of the area include Elizabeth I, who owned a hunting lodge at Cerne Abbas a few roads away, former Dukes of Westminster and Buccleuch, Max Bygraves, Mantovani, J.R.R. Tolkein, Ed Stewart and Tom Jones. The grandmother to the 3 Sitwell literary giants Edit, Osbert and Sachevell lived in Balcombe Road.
