Whatever estate agent clichés you want to employ describe this property. If you are looking for a family home, you just need to view this and we can hopefully help you to discover the potential of this magical property.
You approach this part of Elgin Road from Alton Road, close to Parkstone Golf Club. It is down an unadopted private road to a place of peace and quiet that it feels like you are in the middle of the countryside.

The drive initially is gravel then into the block paved parking area, where there is space for lots of cars. Spanish style arched walls filled with fruit trees and roses lead you down the drive. To your left is a car port attached to the extended family accommodation. In front of you is the electrically controlled double garage which also houses a new Worcester boiler. Next to the garage is the en-trance to the self contained large annexe flat. This comprises a fully fitted kitchen, large living room/dining area, and double bed-room with ensuite bathroom. There are doors out from the 3 principal rooms to the private garden of the annexe which has fruit trees and black grape vines.

Access to the current extended family accommodation is via its own back door into the conservatory kitchen. Through to the stu-dio room which has an ensuite wetroom and a walk-in wardrobe.
The main house entrance is a tiled hall with utility room, downstairs loo and a coat cupboard behind which is a huge storage space.

Up the stairs to main living area. On the landing there is more storage and access to the loft via an integral loft ladder. Off of the landing are 3 double ensuite bedrooms, 2 of which have doors leading out to the patio and one has an oversized Jacuzzi bath. There is also the access to the sun balcony.

The main living area has an open plan kitchen, with breakfast bar and separate dining area. The CCTV is located here. It is through the arch to a vast living room which it turns leads to the conservatory in front of the wall swimming pool area and pump room. As we write the swimming pool is being commissioned for the season.

All outside is a magical space of lawn, mature shrubs, bushes, trees, patio, climbing frame and tree house which the children have sleepovers in.

And finally the extraordinary brick built bar, with actual bar, BBQ and pizza oven.

Area Description

Parkstone Golf Club, one of the top 100 courses in the country is on your doorstep. If this is your sport, what a treat to walk to the 1st tee. And back from the 19th!
Sports are a feature of the area. I guess that an interest in the water brings you to want to live here. The prestigious Royal Motor Yacht Club is on the Sandbanks peninsula, Salterns Marina is the other side of Evening Hill and the sailing centre of the area is Parkstone Yacht Club in Lilliput.
The harbour itself is the second largest natural harbour in the world(after Sydney) with many marinas capable of mooring the largest of yachts. Poole itself is the home of Sunseeker Marine. The natural harbour ensures safety and security for the yachts and the wonderful microclimate created by the Purbeck Hills makes for regular use of the water. And watching the kitesurfers and windsurfers in this UK hub for the sports will leave you open-mouthed. The harbour is known to be the UK’s safest venue for teaching children to windsurf and kitesurf.
The famous West Hants Tennis Club is within 4 miles. The area has a large cycling community with a favourite destination being to take the Sandbanks chain ferry to explore the Purbeck Hills. And of course Dorset’s Jurassic Coast is a must for walkers. There are local gyms at the Haven Hotel and the Sandbanks Yacht Company and of course AFC Bournemouth is now a Premier League club.

If you are so inclined it is about a 20 minute walk from Pinetops to the harbours edge, part of 7 miles of continuous beach from Poole to Bournemouth and beyond. From there you can stroll along the beach or the promenade to the famous beaches of Sandbanks.

All around you in Sandbanks, Canford Cliffs and Penn Hill are wonderful restaurants with Rick Stein’s open on the edge of Poole Harbour and the Pig on the Beach is in Studland via the chain ferry. And in Canford Cliffs itself is the local famous HND hair and beauty salon plus 2 great gastro pubs: The Cliff and The Plantation. You can walk to Penn Hill and collect your bread from the award winning artisan bakers at Mark Bennett’s Patisserie. The little precinct here is full of fun places to eat and drink, as are Ashley Cross and Lilliput which again are within walking distance. And for dog lovers the area has a brilliant walks, the great one being the cut through to St Osmunds Road through an unspoilt wood, up Links Road to the little known viewpoint with magnificent views over the golf course, to the harbour, Brownsea Island, the Purbeck Hills and Old Harry Rocks.
For shopping there a local mini Co-Op and Tesco mini stores with the supermarkets of Waitrose, M&S Food and Tesco within a mile.

If you have school age children, at primary level Lilliput 1st school Courthill Infants plus Baden Powell for ages 7-11 are Ofsted rated outstanding. BCS prep school is on your doorstep and there are local bus pick up points for the private schools of Dumpton, Castle Court, Canford, Bryanston and Clayesmore.

Despite living in one of the most stunning places in the UK, the area is a significant business hub with the headquarters of JP Morgan, Vitality, LV, Sunseeker Marine, Barclays International, the RNLI and Merlin Entertainments all in the conurba-tion.
From Pinetops you are approximately 2.5 hours from London by car. It is a mile to the Wessex Way with at least dual car-riageway to the New Forest, Southampton and the UK motorway network. By rail from the walking distance Parkstone station there are direct routes to London and Manchester. Bournemouth International Airport is the fastest growing in the UK and from Poole there are ferries to France and the Channel.

But why would you ever leave the playground that is this house.
