Magnificent 3 double bedroom ground floor apartment within 500 yards of Alum Chine beach. Benefits of private gated entrance, 2 allocated parking spaces, conservatory leading out to a large private back garden and no forward chain. Set in the delightful and increasingly popular Alum Chine area, a property of this manageable size is quite rare. The ground floor apartment has been beautifully maintained.
In through the front door you will find yourself in the hallway which has a wonderful oak wooden veneer flooring laid throughout most of the apartment. Two of the three bedrooms have built in wardrobes and of which one benefits from an en-suite. Each bedroom has thermostatically controlled radiators, wooden flooring, double glazed windows. Now working our way through to the living area, you will notice the magnificent floor to ceiling bay windows which overlook the garden allowing plenty of natural light. Oak wooden flooring, Thermostatic radiators, Sockets, connection point and an office room located directly to the side of the living area which you can use as you wish. Kitchen area light, airy and spacious, laminate flooring, partly tiled walls, gas hob, electric oven/grill, built in cupboards and washing machine. Beautiful French doors leading into conservatory from the kitchen which both have fantastic views over the garden.
The property sits in a peaceful road, only 5 minutes to the Alum Chine beach. Turn right and you have the perfect Sunday morning or summer’s evening stroll along the beachfront or promenade to Sandbanks, taking in a coffee or something stronger at the Branksome Beach restaurant or Jazzy’s cafe. Right on Alum Chine beach itself is the well-known Vesuvio restaurant with its wood burning pizza ovens. There are 7 miles of these award-winning beaches to explore. Even during the Bournemouth Air Show or all the summer fireworks, when parking for the beach is at premium you can stroll down trying to hide your secretly smug feeling. Alum Chine is a year-round dog friendly beach.
Now you are in Sandbanks, you can look across the whole of Poole Harbour which is the 2nd biggest natural harbour in the world and a safe haven for both mega yachts and pleasure boats with numerous marinas and moorings. Sailing events and clubs abound and this is one of the UK hubs for windsurfing and kitesurfing. You can see many a champion in these sports practicing in the harbour or off the beach. It is acclaimed as the one of the safest locations to teach children. And of course, Poole Harbour is home to Sunseeker yachts and the RNLI. Why stop at Sandbanks? Catch the chain ferry to Studland, gaze at some of the extraordinary seafront properties, and then explore the Purbeck Hills and get up close and personal with the famous Old Harry Rocks. The Purbeck Hills shield the area and give Poole and Bournemouth its Riviera microclimate.
While in Studland, it is treat to go to the Pig on the Beach restaurant and you mustn’t miss the Beer Festival at the Bankes Arms. Whilst mixing the sea and dining, if you are a boat owner the trip to Yarmouth on the Isle of Wight is made even more worthwhile with a visit to Saltys Seafood Restaurant. Closer to home as we are talking eating, there are a fantastic range of restaurants and pubs close at hand to your home, none closer than The Edge, a penthouse restaurant in the clouds overlooking the sea just a couple of minutes’ walk away. In Canford Cliffs village, take in the ever-popular Cliff gastro pub. The Plantation also in the village never disappoints and it takes dogs which is a serious plus for those of us who love our dogs and pints in equal measure. The exotic Koh Nai in Lilliput serves Thai Tapas. And for special occasions Rick Stein harbourfront restaurant is not to be missed.
Westbourne, a suburb between Poole and Bournemouth is just a few minutes’ walk away and serves all your shopping needs as well as having an eclectic mix of coffee shops, bars and eateries. Westbourne has an M&S food store and both Tesco and Lidl are within walking distance.
