The English Courtyard Association and The Beechcroft Trust are synonymous with the very best in retirement housing. This attractive two bedroom ground floor apartment with a private terrace overlooking the award winning landscaped gardens is located in the popular resort of Bournemouth, with an historic seaport in Poole to the West; a fine medieval priory in Christchurch to the East; seven miles of award winning beaches; plus an array of shopping and leisure facilities. Sandbourne Court was built on the site of two former Edwardian seaside villas in mature wooded grounds, and was completed circa 2001.


“Our mother bought this special property from new and thoroughly enjoyed her time here in such a fabulously unique home; she always felt that the property was more like a ‘bungalow’ rather than an apartment, especially with the atrium styled hall and the sunny patio terrace that she loved to sit out on. The apartment is lovely and spacious and many a Christmas has been spent with the hall being transformed into a splendid dining hall to accommodate all the family. The tranquillity of this private setting and the extremely well looked after grounds give an overall charm to the property and enhance a lovely sense of peace. Our mother decided to buy this property because it has such a homely feel about it and she loved it as soon as she saw it, saying she felt it was the best one having its own little patio to enjoy the sunshine. As an added bonus there is plenty of storage which is so important when you are moving from a larger property and the security of this refined development was essential for her peace of mind. The eclectic shops in Westbourne are an absolute treat to visit and of course the sea front is within easy travelling distance.”


The apartment offers spacious and comfortable accommodation on the ground floor, with a large dining hall and an open plan reception room ideal for entertaining. The kitchen breakfast room is tastefully styled with a range of units, work surfaces and integrated appliances including electric hob and extractor fan, light and hood over, washing machine, dishwasher, fridge and freezer, built in oven and grill with microwave above, supplemented with wall tiling.
