This is just about the perfect flat. 3 double bedrooms, and over 100 ft of sun balcony with views over Poole Harbour, Brownsea Island and the Purbeck Hills. The flat comes with secure underground parking as well as visitor’s spaces. The best position in the block. Priced to sell promptly.
The best position? On the corner of the block providing uninterrupted views, floods of light and corridors to the flat that are only accessed to this flat so that you are very private.
The entrance to the block has a secure fob and intercom system, individual flat post boxes, Kone 8 person lift and stairs to all floors. By car there is a secure underground car park with a dedicated parking space and a secure bike store. The lift also is accessed from the car park floor so it’s easy for your shopping. There are visitor’s spaces around the block and as a Poole resident you can buy a Poole parking permit for £55 a year or visitors permits for £2 per day.
In through the front door of the flat it is a large hallway with a cloakroom storage cupboard as well as a double door airing cupboard. The family bathroom is off of the hall. All 3 bedrooms are designed so that you have privacy whilst still being able to lie in bed with a cup of tea and enjoy the magnificent views. The main bedroom obviously has the most stunning of the views with floor to ceiling windows but all 3 bedrooms overlook the balcony. The main bedroom has His and Hers integral wardrobes and also has an ensuite bathroom with a large shower cubicle with drench shower head.
Then into the living area with one end floor to ceiling windows and patio doors out to the sun balcony and the spectacular views. The owners used to have parties to coincide with the Poole summer evening firework displays and tell us that they once had 30 people on the balcony on a particularly balmy evening. The kitchen area has granite work surfaces and Bosch appliances.
There has only been one owner of the flat since it was bought off plan by a local doctor in 2008. By buying off plan, she was able to stipulate the finishing touches so you will see lots of TV points and plug sockets and all the floors which are not carpeted are all Amtico.
The owner has married and moved to a house. Initially she has rented out the flat (if investor projected income of £1300 per month, 4.8% gross yield) but now wants to sell. The flat is empty and available for immediate viewing.
You are within walking distance of the bustle of Poole Quay where you can see anything from fishing boats coming back in to sleek Sunseeker yachts, whose home is Poole. You will always find something different here: fireworks evenings to biker evenings, cockles on the quay to traditional pubs to evenings out at the Guildhall Tavern or Sunday lunch buffet at the Hotel Du Vin. And for home cooking, a visit to Greenslades fresh fish market shop on the other side of the bridge will not disappoint.
Of course in town, everything is convenient: doctors, dentists and Sainsburys supermarket all within walking distance. For work out of the area, Poole railway station is less than 10 minutes walk. By car you get quickly access the A31 with at least dual carriageway to the New Forest, Southampton and the UK motorway network. Bournemouth International Airport is the fastest growing in the UK. And Poole bus station is a National Express link. And from Poole Quay there are ferries to France and the Channel Islands.
Commercially Poole is a growing area, enhanced by the new Twin Sails bridge and the Poole/Bournemouth conurbation is a significant employer in the South of England with the headquarters of LV, JP Morgan, Barclays International, RNLI, Sunseeker Marine and Merlin Entertainments.
You are on the edge of Poole Harbour, which is the 2nd largest natural harbour in the world, and haven to boats of all sizes. There are of course many marinas, yacht clubs, and slipways and even if the water is not for you, it remains a spectacular sight to watch the kitefsurfers and windsurfers in this UK hub for the sports. There is also a large cycling community with a favorite trip being to take the Sandbanks chain ferry to explore the Purbeck Hills. Dorset’s Jurassic Coast is a key destination for walkers. The area has a number of quality golf courses and tennis clubs and of course our neighbours in Bournemouth have a Premier League football club.
For families, the local schools are good. At Primary level, there are Old Town Infants School and Longfleet Church of England School, both Ofsted rated good. At Secondary level, St Edwards has a strong reputation and is Ofsted rated good. And both grammar schools are easily accessible.
Waterside lifestyle both as home or a holiday bolthole.
