Believed to have been constructed around the turn of the last Century, Harbourside House is thought to have been one of the first dwellings in this exclusive and now highly desirable coastal location. The current layout offers well presented accommodation and is clearly shown on the attached floorplan. Approached via electric double gates from Panorama Road, a long driveway leads up to the house and the deep frontage provides full seclusion from the road. There are many outstanding and unique features to this home, but without doubt the main attraction is the access from the rear to Poole's famous natural harbour and the simply breathtaking uninterrupted westerly views across the harbour towards Brownsea Island. The sunset from this location and elevated position has to challenge some of the finest in the world.
The design of the house is such that the views are enjoyed from all of the principal areas, including the kitchen/day room, library, drawing room, master bedroom, guest bedroom, "Captain's Quarters" offices and the multi tiered terracing to the rear. There are also balconies accessed from the guest bedroom, a Juliet balcony from the master bedroom and a front elevation balcony from bedroom three. The property enjoys an enviable elevated position in comparison to nearby properties.
The property is ideally suited for marine themed activities, in particular there is a private slipway leading down from the rear garden boathouse and a long, private jetty of 56 metres with steps positioned on the end for boat access. There is also a private "outhaul post". Also included within the sale is the buoy and ground tackle attached to a most convenient deep water mooring, positioned only a short distance off the end of the private jetty. (Please note that the mooring is NOT conveyed with the property but might be assigned to new owners of Harbourside House via license from the Harbour Master).
Large detached garage with electric roller door - Covered car port - Multi tiered rear garden with various terraces providing options for sunbathing, al fresco dining and general enjoyment. The swimming pool is positioned on the lower tier adjoining the jetty decking and whilst functional, is in need of refurbishment.
The Sandbanks Peninsula is located at the entrance to Poole Harbour, which is regarded as the second largest natural harbour in the world. Sandbanks is internationally renowned for its watersports and boating facilities. For those less inclined to take to the sea, the County of Dorset offers some of the UK's most beautiful countryside, with a vast array of lifestyle opportunities from the wilds of the New Forest, to manicured championship golf courses. All that Sandbanks has to offer is easily accessible by car and train from central London. Bournemouth and Southampton airports operate direct flights to many European destinations. For many reasons, it is easy to see why Sandbanks has long been regarded as one of the most desirable places to live in the UK.
