About The Property
Set in 1.43 Acres on Sandbanks Peninsula, the plot is located on the northwest point, commanding a double aspect with its unbelievable corner plot setting, capturing all day sun, with breath taking 270 degree aspect with spectacular views across Poole Harbour, and Brownsea island.
The main house sits centrally on its plot, nestled away taking full advantage of its treeline setting whilst basking in its sunny aspect, it affords complete privacy from Panorama Road, with a sweeping drive connecting from the entrance gate and garaging area, leading into the main plot and opening up to the house itself. To its right, carport gives parking with a drop back of a mature settlement of trees, which conceals a fabulous gardeners haven and a large summer house and paths connecting through to the front boundary. To the left of the main house, various zoned planting arrangements give the current owners privacy from the water, with elements of views pulling you through and this does give you a grandness in scale for how big the plot is, especially when down on the southerly point which opens onto a seating area with can only be described as the pinnacle of living and viewpoints. To the rear of the main home, extensive lawns sweep away from the home opening up the drop back of Brownsea Island and the most spectacular view that we believe, no other home in Sandbanks has, and arguably any waterfront plot has in the United Kingdom. Additional areas to the rear include an outdoor infinity pool, boat store and slipway access.
The house has been in the same family since the late 1800's, having survived 2 world wars, it was built originally early 1900's and then extended in the 1950's and again added to in the 1970's with some internal refurbishment in parts of the home in recent years. The home has a nostalgic charm about it and investment will be needed if the incoming buyer wishes to modernise. Some may choose to lift the roof and extend while others might want to start a fresh and rebuild. What is very apparent, who ever lives here will be owning the ultimate plot, giving privacy, location and a home for the next generation to enjoy.
Lets take a look inside
Entering the main hall, stairs connect to the first floor whilst connecting through to main reception rooms. The ground floor hosts a spacious living room, dining room and kitchen, all of which embrace its waterfront location with whispering glances of the water that pull you through each area and out onto the veranda for those sunny days. Additional rooms for this floor include kitchen utility room, store room, pantry, separate store room, an office and guest W.C.
To the first floor, given the 1950's extension and works, some considerable detail and thought was put in by the family to give a fantastic principle bedroom suite hosting walk in dressing room and ensuite. A guest bedroom suite, with range of wardrobes and ensuite, with bedrooms 3 & 4, sharing the family shower room. 3 of the 4 bedrooms all have water views as the house wraps around its 270 degree aspect.
