Property description

Tenure: Freehold

Prime waterfront locations like this rarely come to the market. Just short of 9000 sq ft of property on a plot of 0.5 acre.
Built in 2000 by a local developer/architect for himself with the target of the mechanics of the property to be to the standard of a small boutique hotel. In this there is a highly specked water management system including water softener, underfloor heating throughout the property, 2 Viessmann gas boilers, security system operable remotely and 18 channel 3-phase Oxtron electrics.

There is a magnificent flow and organisation to the property with flexibility in room determination. Above the garage is a gym, but could easily be an annexe or a bedroom or a recording studio. The huge and highest room in the house is currently an office, but could easily convert to another bedroom. The games room could become a bedroom.

The design of the house targeted the harbour as its focal point, so that from pretty well every room there are 180 degree views.
The current owners bought the property in 2007 and have raised their kids here and the indoor swimming pool had lots of use. They have spent over £0.5m on the house since they have owned it, upgrading and reconfiguring including installation of the all important bar.

But the main reason you’ll want this house is the access to the most amazing stretch of water it has. The garden slopes gently down to the harbour edge with the jetty, the slipway, summer house and the boathouse. The owners kids have caught Sea Bass from the jetty. It is worth your while to look at the videos that we have showing the easy launching and operation of the fantastic amphibious boat appropriately named Sealegs.

The property does come with planning permission and a possible turnkey solution. The permission was granted in February 2019 for a block of 9 luxury 3 bedroom apartments totalling some 12,500 + sq ft. This would provide the acquirer significant and very valuable options in the future. Please ask us too regarding the covenant over neighbouring land.

Of course, magnificent as you stand in awe looking at the ever changing panorama and seascape with boats moving to and fro in front of you and framed by Brownsea Island, Sandbanks and Salterns Marina.
