Full description

Every now and again you walk into a room and come across something incredible. With this apartment, it’s the view. Every window has a breath taking view over the clifftops and the sea. Exhilarating.

As you walk through the front door into the elegant entrance hall, across the lobby and into the lift, you have no idea what you are about to experience when you step out onto the 7th floor and walk through the apartment door. From both bedrooms, the kitchen, living room and the balcony, the view remains the same... incredible. In this block flats on the 7th floor and above rarely become available because these floors are where the views are spectacular.

Through the front door, you enter the apartment’s hallway, leading into all the rooms of the property The hallway has a large double door airing cupboard and 2 additional storage cupboards. To the far right is the living room/ dining area, a large bright room with a dining area to the back and living area arranged around the central mantlepiece. The room is filled with natural light through the huge sliding glass patio doors looking out over the sea and leading onto the Thai themed balcony. The balcony is semi enclosed with glass with an opening to the centre, views over the Bournemouth clifftops and out to sea, Old Harry Rocks, the Purbeck Hills and Isle of Wight. Please ask at the viewing-the balcony will be fully enclosed this Autumn which works have already been paid for by the reserve fund. The kitchen enjoys the same views through the large double glazed window, loads of worktop and cupboard space, and plenty of space for appliances. The kitchen houses the night storage boiler driving the conventional water filled central heating system, which makes the flat very economical to manage. Both bedrooms are large double rooms with large double glazed windows filling the rooms with natural light and views over the sea. Both rooms have sliding door built in wardrobes, radiators and fitted carpets. The bathroom is tiled to the lower half of the wall and around the large bath with a shower above. Toilet and washbasin with large wall mounted mirror above and wood panelling to the floor and the side of the bath. There is an additional cloakroom tiled to the lower half of the wall with wood panel flooring and a toilet and washbasin. There is secure underground parking with electronic gates to access, as well as visitor parking. There is also a bike store. As we said, the flats on the 7th floor and above come up rarely as the views are so captivating. There are new flats being constructed nearby with some views over the main road, and more expensive. I question which I would want to buy. Enjoy your own private grandstand seat at the Bournemouth Air Show and hold your own Air Show party.

Without question the location is the key to this flat. Minutes from the heart of Bournemouth, and minutes to the beach via a private path and gate to the cliff top. The town centre is a real shopping hub and there are lots of eateries and coffee shops close by. Bournemouth has its well publicised nightlife and mix of independent shops and all the top High Street brands. Bournemouth and west Cliff beaches are just a few minutes walk away, and part of 7 miles of award winning beaches.

. 
For other entertainment it is a very short walk to the Bournemouth International Centre, the Pavilion Theatre and the cinemas. More adventurous? Then walk along the prom past some wonderful beachside restaurants to the famous Sandbanks beaches. You catch the chain ferry there to Studland and the Purbeck Hills, which shelter the area and give Bournemouth its wonderful microclimate. For shopping, there is M&S Food in Westbourne. Just beyond that is Tesco and Lidl with a new Aldi soon to open at Redlands Retail Park, which has major stores such as John Lewis Home, Next Home, Home Bargains and Homebase. For fashion shopping the close by top end of Bournemouth has Zara and Primark or catch a bus to the famous Castlepoint Shopping Centre for the likes of M&S, Asda, Sainsbury, Next and Topshop.

.. 
Sport is brilliantly catered for with tennis within walking distance in the Bournemouth Gardens. Again walk to the cliff top to the Argyll Gardens Bowling Club. The area is rich in golf courses-public courses in Bournemouth are at Meyrick Park and Queens Park or Parkstone Golf Club is in the top 100 courses in the UK. The popular Hallmark Health Club is within walking distance or DW Fitness is at Redlands Retail Park. You can walk along the beach or the prom all the way to the famous Sandbanks beaches, on the edge of Poole Harbour, the 2nd largest natural harbour in the world and haven to boats of all sizes as well as being a UK hub for windsurfing and kitesurfing. There is a large cycling community and Dorset's Jurassic coast is a destination for walkers. Work? Maybe you are at LV or Vitality or Nationwide. In which case you can walk to work. The area has become a significant employer in the South of England. As well as the companies I have just mentioned, the headquarters...

... 
Travel further afield, for work or pleasure is easy. Within 1/4 mile you are on the Wessex Way where there is at least dual carriageway to the New Forest, Southampton and London. Bournemouth Railway station is about a mile with direct routes to London and Manchester. There is also a National Express centre adjacent to the train station. Bournemouth International Airport is less than 3 miles away. Avon House is both a spectacular place to live as well being very convenient.
