Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Beautiful 4 double bedroom home perched on the top of Sherwood Avenue with views over Poole Harbour and the Purbeck Hills. What is striking about this property is the light that floods the house from the rear full length windows. There is great design, flow and quality throughout this house.

The double garage acts as an annexe to the property. In through gates to a block paved drive with space for 2 cars. The garage is remote controlled and leads directly into the laundry/utility room of the house where there is a lot of storage as well as in the adjacent hall, where there is a small study area.

Up the first set of open plan stairs which opens up to a beautifully tiled hallway off of which is a downstairs loo and the 4th bedroom, which is currently being used as a study. Then a really wow room as you enter the living area/dining area, over 500 sq ft of space with room high windows overlooking the decking outside. Adjacent is the kitchen/breakfast room with Porcelanosa tiling and AEG appliances plus the first view of the sea.

Up another flight of open plan stairs to 3 further double bedrooms, 2 of which have ensuite bathrooms as well as there being a separate main bathroom on this floor. Both bedrooms 1 and 2 have full height windows with glorious views over Poole Harbour. The main bedroom itself is over 360 sq ft.

There is quality everywhere in the property from the use of Porcelanosa tiling pretty well everywhere, underfloor heating with Drayton thermostat controls and a Glowworm boiler with a pressurised water system.

The back garden has been mainly decked(low maintenance) and faces bang South. Summer approaches. Time for using your outdoor space to have BBQs, mingle with friends, let the kids run wild, and of course pop a few corks. But what better than to do that in a fantastic sunny South-facing garden with commanding views over Poole to die for and be the envy of all your guests!

The front of the property is handsome and the gravel and paved front garden gives plenty of scope to stamp your own look on it.

Sherwood Avenue in Lilliput is one of the fastest growing roads in popularity and Seabreeze sits on a premium position in the road. From here you can walk in under 5 minutes to Harbourside and the edge of Poole Harbour, which is the 2nd largest natural harbour in the world. The park itself is ideal for dog walking and teaching the children how to ride their bikes. The harbour is haven to all sizes of boat and living here is a temptation to try all the watersports on offer or sit and just watch the exhilarating sight of the kitesurfers and windsurfers in this UK hub for the sports. The area has a strong cycling community with the Purbeck Hills a big attraction and for walkers, Dorset's Jurassic Coast is a key destination. Both are accessed by the quirky chain ferry at the entrance to the harbour.

Lazy too is good, as the ferry marks the end of the 7 miles of the area's award winning beaches, of which Sandbanks is the most famous.

Seabreeze is a great location. The shops at Ashley Cross and Lilliput are close at hand with some wonderful places to have fun in. Ashley Cross itself is a lovely community, both family friendly and for entertainment and eateries. On the green, there are regular events: Don't miss the famous 'Party in the Park' and 'Grooves on the Green'. Other 'must do's' while you live here: Regular visits to Mark Bennett's Patisserie, the local award winning artisan baker and the best sausage rolls in the universe. A Friday night out at Mr Kyps, famous locally for great tribute bands. A Sunday morning breakfast at The Bateau. And a special meal at the OX with a drink first at the Bermuda Triangle.

In the area there are so many great places to eat: all along the beach, in Lilliput itself, up in Canford Cliffs village, and for wedding anniversaries, the treat is the new Rick Stein restaurant on the harbour's edge.

The local schools are excellent. At primary level there is Lilliput 1st School and Baden Powell & St Peters. At secondary level, St Edwards and Parkstone Grammar. These are all highly rated by Ofsted. Just down the road is a pickup point for the private schools of Dumpton, Castle Court, Clayesmore, Bryanston and Canford.

Lilliput medical centre is closeby and Poole Hospital is less than a mile away.

Despite living in one of the most stunning places in the UK, the area is a significant business hub with the headquarters of JP Morgan, Vitality, LV, Sunseeker Marine, Barclays International, the RNLI and Merlin Entertainments all in the conurbation.

And travel out of the area is well catered for. You can walk to Parkstone railway station, where there are direct routes to London and Manchester. It is a couple of miles to the Wessex Way where there is at least dual carriageway to the New Forest, Southampton and the UK motorway network. Bournemouth International Airport is the fastest growing in the UK.

And of course from Poole Harbour ferries run to France and the Channel Islands.
