About this property

  • Savills Canford Cliffs are absolutely delighted to offer for sale this recently built contemporary home designed by renowned award winning local architects David James. The well organised accommodation and full height glazing take full advantage of the magnificent views across Poole Harbour that also extends to Poole Bay towards Bournemouth and the sandy beaches from the upper floors. The house has been designed so that all the principle rooms benefit from these breath-taking open views.

    This stunning home is located on Banks Road and is situated on one of the highest points of the Sandbanks Peninsula providing an elevated viewing platform to enjoy the vista. The award winning sandy beaches for which the area is famous and the picturesque shore line of Poole Harbour are both only a short walk away as is the Sandbanks passenger and car ferry which provides a short link across the entrance to Poole Harbour to Shell Bay, Studland and the Isle of Purbeck with its World Heritage coastline.

    The property can be approached via either a pedestrian gate from Salter Road or by car from Banks Road, which is accessed by remote controlled electric gates that lead to the detached double garage. There is parking for a number of cars as well as the addition of a car port by the current owners. A gate leads through to the private garden and front door.

    On the ground floor, there are three good sized bedrooms with the second bedroom benefitting from having its own en suite and dressing room. A well-appointed family bathroom serves both bedroom three and four. There is also a separate cloakroom. The large boot/utility room has its own side entrance and is the ideal area for coats, shoes and even wetsuits after enjoying time on the water and walks along the beach. A particular feature is the garden/sitting room that overlooks the garden, with an impressive glass atrium up to the first floor. The architecturally designed stair case leads up to the upper floors.

    To the first floor, there is a superb open plan kitchen/dining/living area, which is filled with natural light from the dual aspect and height of the glazing. The kitchen area looks down to the glass atrium to the sitting/garden room below creating a connection between the living areas. The owners have added a bespoke kitchen, which has a range of high quality appliances and a large work surface for food preparation. There is a separate pantry. The generous terrace is a delightful area in which to sit out and enjoy the vista and is ideal for al fresco dining. The spacious main bedroom has a luxurious newly fitted en suite, and a large dressing area with newly fitted custom built wardrobes. A separate cloakroom completes the accommodation on this level.

    The upper floor reception room and extensive terrace provide a real wow factor. Perfect for entertaining or relaxing. The views are outstanding and need to be seen in person to be fully appreciated.

    Externally, there is a landscaped low maintenance garden to the rear with automated external lighting. The double garage has fitted Dura workshop cabinets to maximise storage capacity. There is also a recently installed Pod Point electric car charging point. To the front of the property, there is a private gated stepped path that leads to Salter Road and from there it is a short walk to both the Royal Motor Yacht Club and the Sandbanks Yacht Club.

    - Door entry panel with intercom and camera
