2 bedroom flat for saleCrosstrees, Lilliput, Poole, Dorset
Lilliput Road is a charmingly named street that brings to mind one of Jonathan Swift's best-loved novels. The story behind the road's name has fascinated inhabitants for generations. The most plausible explanation is that it stems from Lilliput House.
This was a sizeable mansion that stood nearby in the late 18th century and was home to a humorous member of the locally renowned Gulliver family. Designed to blend seamlessly with the existing properties on Lilliput Road, the buildings' architectural features contribute to the unique charm and sophistication that characterise the area.
Inscribed with millions of years of natural history, the Jurassic coast is synonymous with dramatic landscapes. The beauty of this stretch of coastline is world-renowned. Steep-sided valleys of former rivers provide natural pathways down to picture postcard beaches and affluent harbours bustle with life.
Lilliput Road is situated in Canford Cliffs, and is a short drive from both Sandbanks and Poole. Its unique surroundings make it one of the most sought after places to live in the UK. As you travel along this prestigious road, a break in the pines reveals a new development: Crosstrees. Set back from the road, it is surrounded by trees and built on elevated ground to make the most of the long-reaching views and the sprawling golf course behind it. Its design and materials have been inspired by its remarkable setting.
The architecture is a combination of the classic and the contemporary, comprising of two modern and two traditional buildings. Award-winning architectural and interior design specialists MCa have realised the vision of the development. Acting as master planners across the entire site, their craftsmanship has ensured uncompromising quality and meticulous detail throughout.
The building contains nine open-plan apartments, each with a private balcony or terrace. The interiors draw their inspiration from the nautical heritage of Dorset and are evocative of super-yachts. As a result, space is used innovatively and efficiently. From shelved pocket alcoves and sliding pocket doors, to integrated appliances and storage, everything has its place, letting the apartments benefit from open spaces. Clean lines and sleek materials feature strongly throughout. As soon as you walk into the building, walnut and bronze accents feature in the entrance hallways. Lighting is a balance of contemporary chandeliers and recessed LEDs, reflecting the traditional and modern balance of the buildings. The plot, sitting amongst mature pine trees, enables the apartments to benefit from stately views of the surrounding area.
