Property Summary

Perfect 2 double bedroom ground floor apartment less than one minute’s walk to the cliff top. Located in a magnificent property and grounds. Share of freehold, pet friendly and no forward chain.

Property Description:

Magnificent handsome property c.100 years old with an extension that is some 20 years old. Apartment 4 is in the extension. Access is through impressive wrought iron gates to the tarmacked drive. There is also a separate pedestrian entrance. The grounds are stunning with a smaller lawn which the owner feels as if it is private to his apartment and then a larger communal lawn, in which the residents use for sitting in the sun, BBQ’s and community gatherings.

The owner bought the flat 2 and a half years ago as a weekend retreat from his job in London and conducted a labour of love to create the flat in his own taste. He sadly says that circumstances have meant that he will live back in London full-time.

It is probably best described by listing the works he has done to the apartment-he estimates that he has spent at least £40,000:

All walls and ceilings have been re plastered.

All wiring has been replaced including new fuse box. 

New brushed stainless-steel sockets and switches throughout.

New electric heating panels in each room, Wi-Fi connected, thermostatically controlled and individually programmable through an app.

New pressurised hot water system with dual immersion heaters and new plumbing throughout.

New flooring throughout, cushion acoustic gold underlay and 12mm laminate in white oak

All windows have new double-glazing panes. 

New kitchen units and appliances including integrated dish washer, Samsung combination microwave/oven with separate warming drawer, extractor hood, Samsung induction hob and integrated refrigerator with ice box.

New bathroom with wall hung toilet, basin, and designer shower cubicle, fully tiled.

All interior doors and door furniture have been replaced.

Whole apartment has been professionally decorated in neutral tones with designer wallpaper accents.


Such a stylish apartment in a well managed block, with no planned significant expenditure, and a good reserve fund. 

Perfect home or weekend bolthole.

Area Description:

This is just a brilliant location, close to the cliff top(less than a minute) and no more than 5 minutes walk to the beach itself. Of course you’ll want to see the air show from the beach or cliff top but If you’re feeling lazy, you’ll catch a lot of it just sitting on your patio.

Yes parking but will you ever need a car? Bus stops are close at hand on West Cliff Road. From Poole Road there are buses every 3 minutes to Bournemouth and Poole. You can walk to Bournemouth town centre, to Westbourne, to Branksome Railway station(2 hours to London, direct route to Manchester) and to the Redlands Retail Park.

In a car you are within a mile of the Wessex Way and at least dual carriageway to the New Forest and the UK motorway network. Plus Bournemouth International Airport is the fastest growing in the UK. And from Poole there are ferries to the Channel Islands and France.

For shopping, there is M&S Food in Westbourne. Just beyond that is Tesco and Lidl with a new Aldi soon at Redlands Retail Park, which has major stores such as John Lewis Home, Next Home, Home Bargains and Homebase. For fashion shopping the close by top end of Bournemouth has Zara and Primark or catch a bus to the famous Castlepoint Shopping Centre for the likes of M&S, Asda, Sainsbury, Next and Topshop.

Sport is brilliantly catered for with tennis within walking distance in the Bournemouth Gardens. Again walk to the cliff top to the Argyll Gardens Bowling Club(a great place for breakfast in it’s café). The area is rich in golf courses-public courses in Bournemouth are at Meyrick Park and Queens Park or Parkstone Golf Club is in the top 100 courses in the UK. The popular Hallmark Health Club is within walking distance or Everlast Fitness Club is at Redlands Retail Park. You can walk along the beach or the prom all the way to the famous Sandbanks beaches, on the edge of Poole Harbour, the 2nd largest natural harbour in the world and haven to boats of all sizes as well as being a UK hub for windsurfing and kitesurfing. From Sandbanks, you can catch the chain ferry to the Purbeck Hills. There is a large cycling community and Dorset's Jurassic coast is a destination for walkers. Or visit the Natonal Trust’s Brownsea Island.

Eating out? Where do you start to describe? Westbourne is full of an eclectic mix of eateries and coffee shops as is Bournemouth. The local Daily Echo ran a recent article ‘Why Westbourne is foodie heaven’. Locally Westbourne is considered very much a village with lots of independent shops and the UK’s smallest cinema with just 19 seats. The pick of eateries are The Dancing Duck, Indi’s. Renoufs cheese and wine bar, the award winning Chez Fred fish ‘n chips and a real traditional pub-The Porterhouse.And in Bournemouth there are the entertainment centres at the Pavilion Theatre, Bournemouth International Centre and lots of cinemas and of course the famous nightlife. 

Work? Maybe you are at LV or Vitality or Nationwide. In which case you can walk to work. The area has become a significant employer in the South of England. As well as the companies I have just mentioned, the headquarters of JP Morgan, RNLI ,Sunseeker Marine, Barclays International and Merlin Entertainments are all based locally.

Azalea Court is a perfect place to live.
