This lovely ground floor flat with a private entrance, allocated parking and a patio located right on Sandbanks road has so much to offer. An ideal accommodation for a first time buyer or a small family! The flat offers two double bedrooms both of which have fitted wardrobes. Second bedroom is currently used as a nursery for the little one, but would easily accommodate a double bed. The spacious living area boosts with beautiful bay windows that allows a plenty of day light to the room and space for a small dinning table. Alongside the fantastic décor, the current owner made sure to use space wisely and next to the chimney breast he fitted cupboard with few shelfs above. The chimney breast is an ideal place to fit a TV and of course all the cables are hidden behind. Going from the living room to the back of the flat through the hall, you will find a modern family bathroom with shower over bath, loo and a sink. Right at the back of the flat is a lovely kitchen in modern grey colour scheme with plenty of kitchen cupboards and space for all appliances.
Sandbanks road is a great location!
From here you can walk in under 5 minutes to Whitecliff Park and the edge of Poole Harbour, which is the 2nd largest natural harbour in the world. The park itself is ideal for dog walking and teaching the children how to ride their bikes..
The harbour is haven to all sizes of boat and living here is a temptation to try all the watersports on offer or sit and just watch the exhilarating sight of the kitesurfers and windsurfers in this UK hub for the sports. The harbour is known to be the safest to teach children these watersports.
The area has a strong cycling community with the Purbeck Hills a big attraction and for walkers, Dorset’s Jurassic Coast is a key destination. Both are accessed by the quirky chain ferry at the entrance to the harbour. Lazy too is good, as the ferry marks the end of the 7 miles of the area’s award winning beaches, of which Sandbanks is the most famous.
The shops at Ashley Cross and Lilliput are close at hand with some wonderful places to have fun in. Ashley Cross itself is a lovely community, both family friendly and for entertainment and eateries. 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 meal at the OX with a drink first at the Bermuda Triangle.
In the area there are so many great places to eat: all along the beach, in Lilliput itself, up in Canford Cliffs village, and for wedding anniversaries, the treat is the new Rick Stein restaurant on the harbour’s edge.
The local schools are excellent. At primary level there is Lilliput 1st School and Baden Powell & St Peters. At secondary level, St Edwards and Parkstone Grammar. These are all highly rated by Ofsted. Just down the road is a pickup point for the private schools of Dumpton, Castle Court, Clayesmore, Bryanston and Canford. Lilliput medical centre is closeby and Poole Hospital is less than a mile away.
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 conurbation.
And travel out of the area is well catered for. You can walk to Parkstone railway station, where there are direct routes to London and Manchester. It is a couple of miles to the Wessex Way where there is 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 of course from Poole Harbour ferries run to France and the Channel Islands.
This home would be perfect for first time buyers, small family or even is a perfect “lock key” holiday home!
