Property SummaryAn impressive 5-bedroom modern detached house that provides direct access onto the prestigious Parkstone Golf Club. If you love space, light, minimalism and a "WOW" factor, then we strongly encourage you to view this property that is conveniently located on Compton Avenue, between Lilliput and Canford Cliffs.
This property has been extended and remodelled over recent years and the result is this dramatic, high spec and impressive family home. The property offers approximately 3057 ft² of living accommodation and includes large open plan kitchen/dining room, 3 reception rooms, 5 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms. The property has been decorated in a contemporary neutral black and white theme throughout which creates a WOW factor in every room you enter.
Despite being open plan and minimalistic, the owners have paid extra attention to storage space and cleverly positioned windows/skylights ensure that the whole property is incredibly light throughout. All the building works have been carried out to modern building regulations, resulting in the property being incredibly well insulated and energy efficient, including LED lighting throughout and solar panel heating.
The outside spaces are equally as impressive. To the front you will find an "in and out" driveway, providing ample parking for 4/5 cars, and a garage with an up and over electric door.
The rear garden boasts three patio areas all laid with black Indian Limestone slabs, which provide great entertaining/dining areas. In addition, you will find a hot tub set in a beautifully manicured garden with shaped lawn, mature planting and trees providing a wonderful backdrop.
This property would make an ideal executive or family home.
Upon entering the property, you will find a porch with full height double glazed windows and two skylight windows. Large white porcelain tiles have been used to create an instant impact and these tiles flow throughout the ground floor of the property. This beautifully light space is ideal for a greeting porch or a boot room. LED Lighting and a set of imposing black double doors lead you to the hallway.
As soon as you enter, you will be greeted by your first of many "WOWS". The mix of white walls, black doors and white porcelain tiles create an instant dramatic impact. The hallway features LED lighting and a tall white wall mounted radiator.
Home office/Utility Room
The first door to the left leads you to a room that could be used as a home office or utility room. There is currently plumbing and electrics for a washing machine and dryer inside a cupboard, so they are neatly hidden away allowing you to utilise the rest of the room for another purpose; such as a home office. Full height double glazed windows, a skylight, LED lighting and a tall white wall mounted radiator. Underfloor heating. CAT cabling and wall sockets for a TV.
Directly opposite the Home office/Utility room, you will find a room of a similar size which is currently being used as a home gymnasium. If a home gym isn't of appeal to you, this would also work as a separate dining room or a playroom for the children. The two frosted feature windows allow light to flow through to the dining room on the other side of the wall. Full height double glazed windows, a skylight, black carpet, LED lighting and a tall white wall mounted radiator. Underfloor heating. CAT cabling and wall sockets for a TV.
Just off the entrance hall is a third black door that leads to an impressive downstairs bathroom, perfect for guests to use. A free-standing bath with floor standing chrome tap is the centre piece. Toilet, sink, chrome towel rail and window with frosted glazing. LED lighting, underfloor heating.
At the far end of the hallway you will find a secondary set of modern, part glazed, black double doors leading into the heart of this home; the kitchen. The same large white porcelain tiles flow through this area. The kitchen itself is built into one wall and a large island unit. Within the island unit you'll find a Neff induction hob, Smeg dishwasher and a pop-up electrical socket. A 1.5l bowl sink is set into a white resin island worktop and is nicely finished off with a modern black kitchen tap. There is a built-in fridge, freezer, microwave, two Zanussi ovens and a wine cooler. The kitchen also provides a plethora of storage units. From the kitchen, a set of bi-fold doors lead onto the first of three patios. This patio benefits from a glass balustrade overlooking the gardens which creates a superb entertaining space for alfresco dining. A staircase from this patio leads down to a secondary patio and the rest of the gardens. LED lighting, extractor fan and CAT cabling.
The kitchen and the dining area are separated by a single step with a white LED strip light. The dining area itself is a good size with two glazed windows and a set of double doors leading onto the second patio area, which provides the perfect place for a bistro table and chair set and a beautiful space for a morning coffee. From the dining area, there is a door that leads to the boiler room. In here you will find all the heating controls and some further storage.
From the kitchen/dining room, a black staircase with white LED lights will lead you down to an impressive 21ft lounge. This will definitely "WOW" your guests and is a fantastic entertaining space with two sets of full width/height bi-fold doors which allow natural light to flood in. These doors open onto the third patio that this property offers. As with the other two patios, the large black Indian Limestone slabs have been laid to create a striking entertaining space. Blue LED mood lights run around the perimeter of the ceiling, creating a modern yet cosy feel. Underfloor heating. CAT cabling and wall sockets for a TV.

An "in and out" tarmacked driveway leads down to the property. This provides ample parking space for 4/5 cars. The front and sides on the property are bordered with mature hedging, providing a great deal of privacy from the road. On one side of the property you will find a single garage with an electric up and over door. Inside the garage, you will find lighting, power and a set of double doors at the rear, leading onto the garden. On the other side is a black side gate that provides side access to the rear garden.
The rear garden boasts three patio areas all laid with black Indian Limestone slabs, providing great entertaining/dining areas; one ideal for alfresco dining directly off the kitchen, another which catches the morning sun making it perfect for a morning coffee and a third, for general family play.
In addition, you will find a hot tub set in a beautifully manicured garden with shaped lawn, mature planting and trees providing a wonderful backdrop.
At the rear of the garden, you will find a space perfect for decking, a log cabin or summer house. Currently, the rear of the property leads straight to the prestigious Parkstone Golf Club, but a fence and gate could easily be erected providing both privacy and a direct access to the Golf Club, perfect for the keen golfer!
Parkstone Golf Club, one of the top 100 courses in the country, is on your doorstep. If this is your sport, what a treat to walk to the 1st tee. The property benefits from DIRECT ACCESS to the club's front door through the rear garden.
Sports are a feature of the area. I may guess that an interest in the water brings you to want to live here. The prestigious Royal Motor Yacht Club is on the Sandbanks peninsula, Salterns Marina is the other side of Evening Hill and the sailing centre of the area is Parkstone Yacht Club in Lilliput.
The famous West Hants Tennis Club is within 4 miles. The area has a large cycling community with a favourite destination being to take the Sandbanks chain ferry to explore the Purbeck Hills. Of course, Dorset's Jurassic Coast is a must for walkers. There are local gyms at the Haven Hotel and the Sandbanks Yacht Company and of course AFC Bournemouth is a Premier League club.
The harbour itself is the second largest natural harbour in the world (after Sydney) with many marinas capable of mooring the largest of yachts. Poole itself is the home of Sunseeker Marine. The natural harbour ensures safety and security for the yachts and the wonderful microclimate created by the Purbeck Hills makes for regular use of the water. Watching the kite-surfers and wind-surfers in this UK hub for the sports will leave you open-mouthed. The harbour is known to be the UK's safest venue for teaching children to wind-surf and kite-surf.
If you are so inclined, it is about a 20-minute walk from Compton Avenue to the harbour's edge, part of 7 miles of continuous beach from Poole to Bournemouth and beyond. From there you can stroll along the beach or the promenade to the famous beaches of Sandbanks. All around you in Sandbanks, Canford Cliffs and Penn Hill are wonderful restaurants with "Rick Stein's" open on the edge of Poole Harbour and "The Pig on the Beach" in Studland via the chain ferry. In Canford Cliffs itself is the local famous HND hair and beauty salon plus 2 great gastro pubs: "The Cliff" and" The Plantation". You can walk to Penn Hill and collect your bread from the award-winning artisan bakers at "Mark Bennett's Patisserie". The little precinct here is full of fun places to eat and drink, as are Ashley Cross and Lilliput, which again are within walking distance. For dog lovers the area has brilliant walks, a favourite being the stroll from Links Road to a little-known viewpoint with magnificent views over the golf course, to the harbour, Brownsea Island, the Purbeck Hills and Old Harry Rocks.
For shopping there are Co-Op local and Tesco express stores with the supermarkets of Waitrose, M&S Food and Tesco within a mile.
If you have school age children, the primary level schools of Lilliput 1st and Baden Powell are Ofsted rated outstanding. There are many local bus pick-up points for the private schools of Dumpton, Castle Court, Canford, Bryanston and Clayesmore.
Despite living in one of the most stunning places in the UK, the area is a significant business hub with the headquarters of JP Morgan, Vitality, LV, Sunseeker Marine, Barclays International, the RNLI and Merlin Entertainments all in the conurbation.
From Compton Avenue you are approximately 2.5 hours from London by car. It is just over a mile to the Wessex Way with dual carriageway to the New Forest, Southampton and the UK motorway network. By rail there are direct routes to London and Manchester. Bournemouth International Airport is the fastest growing in the UK and there is a ferry network from Poole to France and the Channel Islands.
A wonderful lifestyle location.
