Ashley Cross is a thriving community. Mentone Road is possibly one of the most sought-after roads in the cross. With predominately Victorian detached, semi-detached and terraced houses its feel like village style living. Most of the houses are occupied by professionals/families. The amenities and buzz of the centre is just a short walk away with an array of restaurants, cafes, shops, banks and bakeries you are spoilt for choice. In the other direction you can easily walk to Poole and Whitecliff parks and the town centre is close to. If you are a commuter or regular cross country traveller then Parkstone station will be a bonus with regular routes to Waterloo, London, again this is in walking distance.
"I bought my house for several reasons: proximity to the beach & harbour (we swim, paddle board, kayak and kite surf), the stunning Purbeck hills & villages plus great schools in the area. I love the character of these Victorian houses, the space especially my garden. I also frequently commute to London/ the north, so the train station is very handy. I do love this house, the neighbourhood and have been very happy here, it is going be sad to say goodbye.
