Sandbanks is recognised as one of the most exclusive property spots in the UK, and is reported to have the fourth highest land value per square foot in the world. Many celebrities have purchased homes in the area, including footballer Harry Redknapp and cricketer Geoffrey Boycott.
Price tags on Sandbanks properties are particularly high, as they afford the buyer direct access to one of the country’s best sandy beaches, as well as direct access to Europe’s largest natural harbour, while of course boasting epic sea views to the south and harbour views to the north.
Most of the properties on the Sandbanks peninsula are large detached houses. All are very modern in both build and design, and several feature heated pools and private jetties onto the water – perfect if you have your own personal watersports equipment. Some properties are so decadent that they actually have two homes in one – these are described as ‘his and her’ houses.
Sandbanks itself is a small peninsula across the mouth of Poole Harbour. It has an award winning beach, which has maintained its Blue Flag status for over 30 years. The beach is ideal for casual swimming, sunbathing and barbecues, but also has a designated watersports area.
Residents can enjoy a wide array of sumptuous restaurants, including Rick Stein’s and the nearby Chez Fred in Westbourne, as well as local boutiques and specialist shops. Poole town centre is only a short drive away, offering residents easy access to supermarkets, shops, bars and Poole Museum as well as dentists, doctors and physiotherapy clinics to keep you fit & healthy.
Transport-wise, Sandbanks is served by the Morebus company with regular services to Bournemouth, Poole, Studland and Swanage; and for trains, Sandbanks is equal distance between Parkstone, Poole and Branksome railway stations – all are less than 3 miles away, providing fantastic transport links to destinations further afield.
