The floor plan has been intelligently designed and flows effortlessly with the main accommodation being on the ground and first floor predominantly. The Lower Ground floor is currently a self-contained annex which can be used as separate accommodation or can seamlessly integrate with the main house. The top floor is an occasional sitting room/games room and home office. In addition, there is a beautiful 409 sq ft summer house, ideal for when entertaining and dining alfresco as it is located on the waterfront level and has its own kitchenette and unrivalled views across Poole Harbour.

This would be my dream family home, as it is a substantial home with an amazing pool and I would love to watch the boats sailing past at the end of the garden.
