Harbour Gate is arguably the most prestigious and certainly the most well known house on the Sandbanks Peninsula. It occupies a magnificent Southwest facing waterfront plot, just around the corner from some of the area’s best beaches and of course it benefits from amazing views of Poole Harbour and the Purbeck Hills.
The house is barely twenty years old but the current owners have just lavished millions of pounds on a total refit bringing the specification completely up to the minute with programmable lighting and air conditioning throughout. Mod cons and luxuries include a sumptuous private cinema fitted out by a top London specialist and a leisure suite which includes a beautiful indoor swimming pool and a sauna as well as a fully equipped gym benefitting from harbour views. The wine cellar is tucked away in a basement which no doubt the new owner will enjoy stocking and sharing with friends.
At nearly 9,500 square feet the house is unquestionably substantial and the living space includes an exquisite kitchen with areas for informal sitting as well as informal dining. The fit out includes a full complement of oversize Gaggenau appliances, hand crafted units and beautiful stone tops. The nearby snug opens onto a pretty sheltered courtyard which is perfect for outside dining and above it the impressive galleried office is a must-have in the current day and age.
There is a total of six bedrooms and five bathrooms. The master bedroom suite is split level and of course boasts harbour views. Apart from a superb en suite bathroom it has a simply amazing dressing room which even the most ardent fashionista might struggle to fill. The first floor library was a recent addition by the current owners and like everything else at Harbour Gate it is beautifully fitted out.
Outside the sun trap garden benefits from a choice of sun terraces as well as automatic irrigation. The private jetty has lifts for two jet skis providing a valuable and ideal connection to the water. The front garden also features manicured grounds with an oak frame garage which also doubles up as home for a TrackMan 4 golf simulator.
Lastly but by no means least there is separate lodge - in itself a very valuable property - which extends to just over 2,000 square feet including three bedrooms, two bathrooms as well as an integral double garage. Interested parties are advised to take advice as to whether multiple dwelling relief in connection with SDLT applies.
There is much to admire here at Harbour Gate and too many features to mention in our short description. For anybody seeking an important and exceptional waterfront home this is a wonderful and rare opportunity not to be missed.
