Old Coastguard Road, Sandbanks

Coastguards, 17-18 Old Coastguard Road, Poole, Dorset, BH13 7RL

Guide Price:



Coastguards occupies a unique and beautiful plot in one of the United Kingdom's most exclusive waterfront locations. Old Coastguard Road is in the most historic part of the Sandbanks Peninsula where the crew & families of the local lifeboat station lived in a very quaint terrace of cottages which was built in the 19th Century and which still survives to this day. The views across this tranquil stretch of water are simply mesmerising taking in Brownsea Island as well as the working port in the distance where lights shimmer on the horizon after dark. For watersports enthusiasts there is a private jetty at the edge of the second largest natural harbour in the world and beaches are easily accessible by way of a short stroll. The acclaimed Royal Motor Yacht Club is conveniently located at the end of the road. The current dwelling has been in the same family ownership since the early 1960s and it is a time capsule remaining largely unchanged since that time. Coastguards could be successfully remodelled and brought up to date although there is an extant (protected) planning permission in place for two dwellings. Alternatively the house could be completely redeveloped into a much larger single dwelling (subject to the necessary consents) for which a nationally acclaimed architect has already prepared a feasibility sketch. The property also benefits from valuable foreshore rights down to the low water mark.
