**BOOK VIEWINGS 24/7** LOW AGENCY FEES** We are delighted to market this 2 BEDROOM APARTMENT in a fantastic location. Based in Poole, the apartment boasts large balcony with SEA VIEW.
This is a large 2 bedroom flat in a small purpose built block of flats (just 4 flats plus the penthouse) with a feature L-shaped balcony which is the largest of the flats and faces south for days of sitting in the sun and evenings eating outside and watching the sun go down behind Brownsea Island.
The flat is in the stunning and highly sought after location of Lower Parkstone and is a rare opportunity to live a stones throw from the local beaches, shops and retail park and a short evening walk to buzzing nightlife in Ashley Cross.
The large balcony has some sea views and also overlooks the communal gardens. Whilst it is a ground floor flat it is accessed by steps leading to the block entrance and is raised above the parking areas to enhance the views. Inside there is gas central heating and double glazing throughout, telephone, broadband and sky connectivity for when the view fades into the sunset.
The flat has a dedicated up and over garage and there is visitor parking in the block. Both bedrooms are large and have mirror fronted built in wardrobes and dressing table. In the hall there are 2 large cupboards including airing cupboard with hot water tank. The main bedroom has an ensuite shower room. The kitchen is fully equipped and as you stand to do the washing up (oops, no, there is a dishwasher) you look out over the balcony to the sea views. To get to the balcony, there are large patio doors from the living room/dining area and on a summer’s day, you must leave these open to enjoy the balcony to its full.
For fun, it is a walk down to Whitecliff Park right on the edge of the harbour. Poole Harbour is the 2nd largest natural harbour in the world and haven to all sizes of boats. It is home to Sunseeker Marine, its yachts made famous by their appearance in James Bond films, the latest being 3 designs in A Quantum of Solace. The harbour is also a UK hub for kitesurfing and windsurfing. Even if you don’t take part, it is a magnificent spectacle to sit on Evening Hill and watch them.
The area has a strong cycling community, particularly over on the Purbeck Hills. And Dorset’s Jurassic Coast is a destination for walkers.
Or on lazier days, the famous beaches of Sandbanks are close at hand.
Local schools are highly rated and include Lilliput ce vc Infant school, Heatherlands Primary School, St Edwards rc/ce va School. Both the Poole Grammar schools are within easy reach.
You are spoilt for eateries and nightlife. You can walk into Ashley Cross which is a lovely community, both family friendly and for entertainment and food. On the green, there are regular events: Don’t miss the famous ‘Party in the Park’ and ‘Grooves on the Green’. Other ‘must do’s’ while you live here: Regular visits to Mark Bennett’s Patisserie, the local award winning artisan baker and the best sausage rolls in the universe. A Friday night out at Mr Kyps, famous locally for great tribute bands. A Sunday morning breakfast at The Bateau. And a special event meal at the ox with a drink first at the Bermuda Triangle.
All over there are wonderful places to eat: Koh Noi Thai Tapas in Lilliput, The Cliff in Canford Cliffs Village, or for very special, the Rick Stein restaurant on the harbour’s edge in Sandbanks.
And of course there is work. Less than 5 minutes walk away is Parkstone railway station with direct routes to London and Manchester(and after a long days work, you can always sneak into The Cow which is 20 yards from the station for a deserved pint).
By car you are just over 2 miles from the Wessex Way and at least dual carriageway to the New Forest, Southampton and the UK motorway network.
Bus routes to Poole and Bournemouth are excellent from Ashley Cross.
The area has also become a significant employer in the South of England with headquarters of Sunseeker Marine, the rnli, Barclays International, Merlin Entertainments, LV, Vitality and jp Morgan.
For work/holidays ferries from Poole go to France and the Channel islands. And Bournemouth International Airport is the fastest growing in the UK.
