Full Description
Drive through the electric gates to a block paved drive with space for 2 cars. The double garage is remote controlled and leads directly into the laundry/utility room. This room has a lot of storage space, as has the adjacent hall which also has a small office area. This lower ground floor area is ideal for your beach/windsurf/kitesurf/bike paraphernalia without going into the main house.

The front of the property with gravel and paving leads to the front door. The hall is beautifully tiled, off which is a 4th bedroom/large office/dining room dependent on your requirements. There is also a loo on this floor. The other 2 rooms on this floor are a magnificent 500 sq ft reception room with room high windows overlooking the South facing decking, and a quality kitchen/breakfast room with AEG appliances, Porcelenosa tiling and a breakfast bar. From the kitchen you have sea views.

Up to the first floor to 3 further double bedrooms, 2 of which have ensuite bathrooms, as well as there being a main bathroom on this floor. The main bedroom is over 360 sq ft and this bedroom and bedroom 2 have wonderful views over Poole Harbour from full height windows.

The back garden is mainly decked for low maintenance and facing South offers a wonderful outdoor space for BBQ’s and for children to play safely.

Sherwood Avenue in Lilliput is one of the fastest growing roads in popularity and Seabreeze sits on a premium position in the road. 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.

For golfers Parkstone Golf Club, in the Top 100 in the UK, is within 2 miles and East Dorset tennis, bowls and croquet club is literally at the end of the road.

Seabreeze is a great location. 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.

A contemporary large family property in a great location.
