“Although excited for the future, it will be with a heavy heart that I leave behind this lovely, sunny and peaceful maisonette. It truly feels more like a house with its light and airy staircase to the comfortable quiet bedrooms. The incredible amount of storage space is a rare thing to come by these days too. The period property still has a sense of grandeur with the living spaces enjoying high ceilings for elegant living. Additionally, with its close proximity to one of Dorset’s best beaches for leisurely sunrise walks and the maisonette’s west facing roof garden, for enjoying a cocktail with friends as the sun sets, it truly has been a magical home”
Set in a convenient avenue only a few minutes’ drive from Southbourne Village, this bright and spacious first and second floor maisonette offers contemporary and comfortable accommodation, with a parking space allocated to the front of the property and a westerly facing roof garden. The entrance to the apartment is found to the left hand side of the property via a path leading to the communal front door. There are 6 apartments within the building. On entering this traditional 1920’s styled property, a communal staircase leads you to the first floor where access to this particular maisonette is found. The front door takes you through immediately to a fusion of contemporary living beautifully styled and affording much natural light. The hallway gives access to the first floor accommodation with stairs leading up to the two double bedrooms, the master bedroom benefitting from a stunning ensuite shower room. The hall has been beautifully decorated and has wooden flooring with carpeted stairs. There are double sealed unit doors leading through to the spacious roof garden that has recently been re-decked and enjoys views over the immediate area, has a westerly aspect and the provision for log storage for the wood burner in the lounge, as well as ample space for table and chairs, perfect for those sunny summer evenings. The lounge is an elegant and stylish room enjoying good natural light from a large bay window overlooking the rear aspect and an originally leaded light window to the side. The log burner forms the focal point for the room displayed on a granite hearth and encouraging cosy winter evenings. The kitchen breakfast room is of a good size with a double glazed window overlooking the roof garden. The fittings here offer a bespoke style with an array of storage facilities fitted specifically to suit the accommodation, with base units, work surfaces and a feature breakfast bar, matching shelving and complementary wall tiling.
