What it's got

This property is deceptively large modern house (2005) and has been completely refurbished throughout to a tasteful standard including freshly white painted walls, grey carpets, luxury kitchen and bathrooms. As soon as you walk into this property you are instantly hit by a flood of natural light. You will fall in love with the house the moment you enter the large lounge/diner offering stunning views of the croquet lawns and tennis club. There is plenty of space for dining and living furniture and the open plan conservatory area is the perfect place to sit and admire the view with a door onto the courtyard garden. The stylish kitchen/breakfast room has been completely replaced with on trend grey shaker style units, complementary white tiled backdrop, integrated appliances, black built in stone sink, induction hob and space for tall standing fridge/freezer. You can easily fit a breakfast table and chairs. There is also a downstairs cloakroom. Moving upstairs you find a generous walk in storage cupboard ideal for coats, shoes, linen etc. On this level there are two double bedrooms, the rear one with views of the croquet lawn and Purbeck hills beyond. The main bathroom has been replaced with a contemporary suite including bath with shower over, wc and wash hand vanity unit/basin. Moving to the top you will find two further double bedrooms, again the rear one offers stunning views. A 'Jack & Jill' shower room services these rooms perfectly. This has also been replaced in a stylish matching suite. To the outside of the property there is a small South facing patio courtyard, great to enjoy a glass of wine whilst al-fresco dining. A personal door leads to the garage which benefits from light and power. There is an additional parking space in front. Agents Note: The shop shown on google maps 'Treasure Island' is no longer trading.

Where it is

The approach to this house is via a quaint private lane past a row of Victorian railway cottages. Ashley Cross, the harbour side and park all being within walking distance makes this an extremely sought after location. You can enjoy an abundance watersports including paddle boarding, kayaking, wind/kite surfing from both the Harbourside Park and the inner harbour of Sandbanks. The award winning beaches of Sandbanks can be driven or cycled to. The ever popular 'Coast' cafe is just a stone's throw away where you can enjoy breakfast/lunch. Just a short distance away is Ashley Cross village with its array of amenities, bars, cafes and facilities. Parkstone train station has direct routes to/from Waterloo, London. Another steer is how close the local Junior school Baden Powell is.

What the owner says

"When I started my property search I wanted something modern and low maintenance, so when I saw this newly built house (2005) within seconds of walking through the front door I knew that this is the one and offered on it there and then! Having two children it was important that the bedrooms were a good size and that they could walk safely to school, the beaches and the parks to meet their friends. It was great to walk to Ashley cross for a glass of wine or a spot of dinner. The close proximity of the train station and several bus routes meant Mums Taxi wasn’t always on call ! The house is set in a small peaceful lane with no passing traffic and despite the close proximity of the railway there really are only a few trains passing through with very little disturbance at all. The outlook over the Tennis Courts and Croquet Lawns is just beautiful with the added bonus that you can watch their Firework display from your armchair. I will be sad to say goodbye to my house, my children have enjoyed it but have now ‘flown the nest’ so I too must move on."
