About this property

  • Savills are delighted to offer this rare opportunity to acquire a town house situated in one of the area's most sought after cliff top positions. The property has been extensively and lovingly remodeled by the current owners to maximise on the stunning sea and coastal views. The interiors of the property and the amount of glass to the rear elevation offer a real architectural surprise in contrast to the front elevation and allows the property to be flooded with natural light.

    On entering this gated property, you are greeted by a bright entrance hall where you get immediately struck by the striking contemporary design and high specification accommodation that awaits behind the front door. The ground floor accommodation comprises: an exceptionally spacious bedroom with fitted cupboards and access out to the rear garden, a luxurious bathroom with in bath shower, a utility room with a dishwasher, which is convenient after outdoor dining with side door access leading out to the garden, a laundry room with access to large garage, a store/boot room with access to a second garage that would be ideal for storage of water sports gear.

    The first floor landing offers views of the sea from the expansive use of glazing as you walk through to the magnificent open plan kitchen/sitting/dining area. The living area has been cleverly incorporated on to the first floor to take full advantage of the water vista from the upper floors. There is a superb modern fitted kitchen with a range of integral appliances, and a wood burner and ceiling mounted swing chai to the living arear. The balcony offers the perfect space to sit outside and enjoy an elevated position of the view. The en suite bedroom and separate cloakroom completes the accommodation to this floor.

    On the top floor, there is the impressive principal bedroom suite where the views are arguably at their finest with a Juliet balcony, fitted cupboards, and a luxuriously large en suite with bath and shower with the clever placement of glass to enjoy sea views from the bath. There is a further bedroom and a separate bathroom.

    To the outside, there is a good size level rear garden that is mostly laid to lawn with paved patio and several decked areas for sun loungers. The real wow factor is the large level decked viewing platform offering incredible views that stretch along the coastline from The Purbecks across the bay towards Bournemouth, Boscombe Pier, Hengistbury Head and the Isle of Wight in the distance. To the front, there is a large block paviour driveway that offers parking for a good number of cars.

    This property must be viewed to fully appreciate the accommodation, position and spectacular views.
