Guide Price

What it's got

When walking in to this property you greeted with a warm 'homely' feel with harbour views from most rooms. The ground floor offers a large through lounge/diner with feature bay window and focal fireplace which leads onto a conservatory. The modern galley style kitchen also loops through to the conservatory. From here you can access the garden via sliding patio doors. Upstairs there are two good size double bedrooms plus a larger than average third bedroom. The bathroom has been modernised with a curved shower/bath and complementary sanitary ware. From the bathroom is the loft access and we strongly recommend you look up here to see the far reaching views over the harbour. The garden is a good size and where you will want to spend most your time. It is divided into various sections with an abundance of mature tree, plant and shrub borders. It is ideal for socialising and barbecuing. This 1930's home is situated on a good sized plot with two large sheds and ample off road parking to the side and front. The property has the benefit of approved planning permission to redevelop into an ultra-modern three storey house which will offer panoramic views over to Poole harbour.

Harbourside Park has something for everyone, there is a large enclosed children's play area, recreation ground for football/cricket/sport and a running/walking path that is surrounded by the harbourside with breath-taking views. Also the ever popular 'Deep South' restaurant where you can enjoy breakfast/lunch and dinner.

What the owner says

"123 has been a lovely place to live. The house has only had 4 owners since its construction in 1936, when it was named St. Lucia. The beautiful garden benefits from sun all day. Due to its convenient position we tend to walk or cycle to most places, however it has ample parking and room to turn a car around in the front drive and wonderful views over the harbour. It has been a fantastic family home."
