The property benefits from being located in a prime coastal residential suburb, located midway between the coastal towns of Poole and Bournemouth. The area is well known for its natural beauty and micro climate with a reputation for having mild winters and more sunshine than most other parts of the country.

Poole Harbour is the second largest natural harbour in the world, whilst Sandbanks has award-winning Blue Flag beaches, and Bournemouth has just over 11km of golden beaches. Located in Dorset, these stars in the county provide an eclectic mix of town, country and coastal living.

The harbour waters are relatively shallow, making it a popular and well renowned location for Watersports. Along this picturesque shoreline there are a large number of marinas with sailing and wind/kite surfing facilities. Adjacent is one of the UK’s finest beaches at Sandbanks, in which to enjoy a stroll, take in the view or enjoy dining al fresco. Rick Stein's highly successful signature restaurant on Sandbanks is also a favourite with locals, as well as visitors.

Good local schools are numerous and include Canford School, Bournemouth and Poole Grammar schools, Bournemouth Collegiate, Talbot Heath and Park School.

Championship golf is available at Parkstone Golf Course, just 0.8 miles from Sylvan Heights, and other local highly regarded clubs at Ferndown and Broadstone.

Theatres are available at the Poole Lighthouse Theatre, The Pavilion in Bournemouth, The Playhouse Salisbury and the Mayflower in Southampton.
