The block was built in 1994. Cleverly designed it is still standout handsome. And because it is older it has a sizeable grounds which are beautifully maintained.

Part of the individual design is that this apartment has a private entrance which gives a space for additional storage.

Excellently managed block which is run by a board of flat owners which has enabled the service charge to be at £2k per year which is extremely low for Sandbanks and in effect lower than most managed blocks in the surrounding districts. And it should be remembered that this sum includes maintaining the substantial gardens. There is £27k in the reserve fund and the exterior has recently been jet washed and sealed.

The apartment itself is very well presented and has been recently redecorated throughout. There is number of perks to this flat to include, solid wood flooring throughout, newly installed boiler, newly fitted en suite bathroom and of course the living room, main bedroom and balcony get good value of the sea views. It faces exactly South and so you get sun from sunrise until c.3pm and if you want more sun, then it’s just a 200 yard barefoot walk to the beach.

Storage is catered for particularly well in this apartment with an airing cupboard, another storage cupboard, and fitted wardrobes.

The current owner have bought the apartment 25 years ago and it has been a perfect home for them, but it could also be a great lock up and go.

A well designed apartment and wonderful lifestyle choice.
