Property Summary

Foxes are delighted to offer for sale this extremely spacious character apartment requiring modernisation in the former prestigious Victorian Hydropathic Hotel, now 'Grand Marine Court'.

Grand Marine Court is an imposing Victorian conversion situated on Bournemouth's highly desirable West cliff retaining many of its original features.
Constructed around 1880 as the 'Bournemouth Hydro Hotel', it was converted into 35 apartments in approximately 1959.
The building is situated at the end of a cul de sac with pathways giving direct access through West Overcliiff gardens above the golden sandy beaches providing views towards the Purbecks.
Bournemouth town centre shops, entertainment and pleasure gardens are only half a mile distant with regular bus routes only 150 yards away.
The flat is accessed through a grand communal entrance with revolving door and is conveniently located only a few yards down the hallway on the ground floor

The accommodation comprises 3 double bedrooms, bedroom 1 having a wonderful bay window and high ceilings whilst bedroom 3 could provide a second reception room, all served by a modern fitted bathroom. The hallway leads to a spacious Living room with bay window and high ceilings, ornate coving and central fireplace. The kitchen is fitted with a range of base and wall mounted units, adjoining worktop and is in need of modernisation. There are a number of dated electric heaters but we understand there is gas to the building


There is unrestricted on road parking available and an underground parking facility available to residents on a rental basis on a waiting list.
The apartment is available with no forward chain and a 969 year lease and provides a blank canvas to modernise as an investment buy to let or holiday home.
