Offering stunning views sweeping across Poole Bay from The Isle Of Wight in the East to The Purbecks in the West, this detached home is offered for sale chain free and presents an exciting frontline opportunity.

Those who know the Southbourne Overcliff will appreciate what a wonderful opportunity this detached property presents.

Featuring a large South facing balcony the views on offer are stunning, stretching across Poole Bay, from Hengistbury Head and The Isle Of Wight in the East, to Sandbanks and The Isle Of Purbeck in the West.

The property would originally have been constructed as a traditional four bedroom, two reception room detached house. In more recent times our clients have very loosely 'split' the property to form independent ground and first floor accommodation with kitchens, bathrooms, and living spaces serving both. This has given our client the ability to holiday let the ground floor whilst retaining the first floor as their own cliff top retreat.

The property does therefore offer great flexibility, and with neighbouring homes have recently been extended and further developed, we believe there is potential to extend in order to create a larger and luxurious coastal home (STPP).

Entering the property there is a useful porch which opens in to a nice sized hallway with stairs to the first floor, and an additional side entrance door. A lockable door leads from the hallway to the ground floor accommodation of which our clients keep locked whilst letting.

Ground floor accommodation is served by an inner hallway which has a doors to a ground floor wc, the kitchen, living room and bedroom.

The living room overlooks the front of property via a box bay window which gives surprisingly good cliff top and sea views. A spaciosu room it affords plenty of space for a wide range of living and dining room furniture.

The ground floor bedroom is set to the rear of property and has a bay window with inset French doors leading on to the rear gardens. Originally this would have been a second reception room and could of course be re-instated as such.

The kitchen comes fitted with a range of white eye and base level cupboards and offers room for a tall standing fridge/freezer and a gas hob. It has a side aspect window with a rear lobby having a door leading to the side of property, and the ground floor bathroom.

Moving up to the first floor, the landing features an original leaded window to the side and has doors to all first floor rooms.

The first floor living room overlooks the front/South side of property. In its original layout this would likely have been two bedrooms which have been 'opened up' to create a spacious first floor living space. It features both French doors, and sliding patio doors which lead on to a full width South facing balcony offering tremendous views over Poole Bay, and giving room for outside lounge/dining furniture.

Adjacent to the living room there is a separate kitchen (originally bedroom 4) which comes fitted with a modern range of white units and an electric oven/hob.

The bedroom is set with the rear of property with a bay window overlooking the rear gardens. It makes for a generous double room and comes complete with fitted wardrobes.

A spacious first floor bathroom features a corner bath and a separate shower with a rear aspect frosted window.

Outside, the front of property has been laid with tarmacadam proving off road parking for 3/4 cars. Double gates open to a wide walkway where there is also room for storage, this in turn leads to the rear garden.

Abutting the rear of property there is a patio area which leads on to a central area of lawn, bordered by a raised area of hardstanding housing a wooden summerhouse. There is then a further area of lawn to the rear with hedge borders and mature trees to the rear boundary.

An excellent opportunity to purchase a freehold home on this increasingly sought after stretch of coastline, internal viewing is essential to appreciate the view, the homes flexibility and further potential.
