The highly distinctive elevations drew their inspiration from billowing sails and windsurfers which have become an inherent part of the seascape of Poole Harbour, famous for its relatively safe and shallow waters making it a mecca for water sports enthusiasts. The magic of this particular location, making it unique in the United Kingdom, is dual frontage with direct access to the beach and wonderful sea views on one side combined with stunning harbour views on the other. The view across the harbour is famous for its sunsets and the working port at Poole Quay is a wonderful focal point after dark, with various lights and illuminations glittering on the horizon. The Blue Flag beaches, surely some of the best in the UK, are home to the British Beach Polo Championship, which has become a firm fixture on the social calendar. Rick Stein has a very popular seafood restaurant just a short walk away on Banks Road.
Storm is approached via imposing remote control gates, offering excellent security, with 'in and out' driveways. The accommodation is laid out over four floors with a wealth of sun balconies and terracing. The kitchen/ breakfast room is located on the ground floor and connects to a private sun terrace facing the beach. This is an excellent outside space for casual dining and sun bathing. The kitchen has been refitted with a range of luxury high gloss contemporary units with a centre island and a whole host of integrated appliances by Miele, amongst others, including an induction hob, extractor, built in fridge/freezer, dishwasher, eye-level electric oven and warming drawer. A separate utility room is complemented by a ground floor shower room - ideal for showering down after a long day on the beach or on the water.
The remaining living accommodation is on the first floor where the formal sitting room boasts a dedicated sun balcony facing the beach and the study/snug benefits from its own sun balcony with views of Poole Harbour.
The four bedrooms and two bath/shower rooms occupy the two top floors. Bedrooms one and two each have private balconies, whilst bedrooms three and four on the top floor feature distinctive porthole windows.
The house is in good decorative order, having been the subject of an expensive make-over during previous ownership and it also has a highly sophisticated AMX system which controls lighting, automatic window blinds as well as an audio/visual system. This was installed by a renowned local expert and it is currently controlled by discreet wall mounted touch panels. It can be expanded and updated to include control of televisions and audio equipment via a dedicated app for iPhones or iPads. The all on/off feature is extremely useful - enabling the owner to close blinds, switch off lights, televisions and audio via a single button.
In addition to the private balconies and the private sun terrace there is a communal lawn, a communal sun terrace and a shower, all of which connects via a secure door to the wonderful dunes and beaches beyond. The grounds to the front are landscaped and there is a double garage in addition to a privately demised parking space. Guest parking on the Sandbanks Peninsula is a rare and valuable commodity - especially during the Spring and Summer months. The benefit of such generous parking is not to be underestimated. There is no forward chain allowing for an easy sale to those seeking to make the most of this phenomenal beach house this summer.
