Property SummaryThis 2 double bedroom 2nd floor apartment is in our opinion in the best retirement development in the area, on the basis of location, value for money, security and community activity. No forward chain.
In our opinion, Chartcombe is best retirement block in the area, based on location, value for money maintenance and the community that is engendered by the residents.
This flat does need some redecoration and some refurbishment which is reflected in the price. We will happily point out what we consider should be done and can recommend contractors.
You approach this development from a sumptuous long hedged drive off of Canford Cliffs Road. The drive is next to Compton Acres, which is acknowledged as one of the finest privately owned gardens in England. And owners have a private access to Compton Acres with free entry 52 weeks a year.
As the drive splits there are electronic gates to Chartcombe, a further drive which sweeps round to the entrance to the flats. The drive sweeps around a magnificent centerpiece Oak tree which is illuminated and the focal point of occasions like Remembrance Sunday. Off of the drive there is the entrance to the secure underground car park, with a dedicated space for your flat. There are lots of visitor spaces. With a high quality CCTV system, BPT security video entry system for each flat, hard wired smoke alarms, internal telephone system and Care Tech emergency call system in each flat, safety and security is taken very seriously. There is thorough and planned management of the block and certainly the best managed that we know of in the area, and all the flat owners share ownership of a flat within the block that generates income to help moderate the service charge.
To the right of the flat entrance is a dedicated storage cupboard and in the hall itself there are 3 further storage cupboards located throughout. The hall contains the video door entry pad, Care Tech care line and internal phone to make calls to other flats or main office.
To your left hand side there are double doors opening up the entrance to the living area which is very generously sized. Towards the end of the living room you will notice a small alcove with a sun room and views over both the communal garden and part of Compton Acres, could be a great spot to place the dining table.
All the windows in the flat overlook the gardens.

It is a short walk into Canford Cliffs village where you will find a Post Office, banks, a convenience store, coffee shops, a renowned hairdressers and beauty salon at HND, a good selection of restaurants and 2 excellent Gastro Pubs at The Cliff and The Plantation. A Tesco Express store is due to open in the village. A short walk further and you are at the Harbour Heights Hotel with breathtaking views over the harbour. It is a 10-15 minute walk to the harbour edge and the famous Sandbanks beaches. Going the other way from Chartcombe, it is a similar walk into Lilliput Village for exotic eating at Koh Nai Thai Tapas and the best sausage rolls in the universe at Mark Bennett’s award winning artisan bakery. Major supermarkets, Waitrose, M&S food, Tesco and Lidl are all within a couple of miles.
