These flats were substantially built in 1968 when the focus was on providing significant grounds and these are wonderful. Lawns the size of a cricket ground and just as manicured, a secret garden, and an open air heated swimming pool.

Lets talk about the swimming pool and grounds. Hidden behind shrubs and a wall is a beautifully maintained open air heated swimming pool and sunbathing area. This is open from May until September (7am-9pm) and has an individual locker for each flat, changing cubicles and a shower. The temperature is maintained at 28.6 degrees. There are toilets as well. Behind the swimming pool is a beautiful secret garden with mature shrubs, pergola, benches. This is ideal for a BBQ and well used by the flat community. There is even a communal herb garden.

The flats can be accessed from Western Road or The Avenue and there are garage blocks and visitor parking. The flat comes with a garage with an up and over door, power and light. Although the location means you will barely need a car: walk to Westbourne, walk to the Chines, walk to the beach, walk to the Railway station, walk to the supermarket.

The caretaker lives in the grounds and is everyone’s sounding board and ‘go to’ if anything needs doing. In fact the whole block is meticulously planned and managed with c.£180,000 in the reserve fund. This is the ideal time to be buying, the block having had a new roof 2 years ago.

The owner has had it for 20 years and it has been a rarely used holiday home. It looks like the oven, grill and dishwasher have never been used.

Many of the apartments have been converted into 3 bedrooms, with the dining room changed to become a 3rd bedroom. This is a simple conversion and will add value to the apartment-please ask us for details. There is also the opportunity for the apartment to be ‘turnkey’ i.e. to include all the furniture. Blinds and curtains in place are already included.

The apartment has everything you need. A fully fitted kitchen with all the integrated appliances, a master bathroom that was new in 2023 plus a separate shower room. 4 additional storage cupboards in the hall. There is a 250 sq ft living room, a 22 ft balcony which is accessed from the living room, the dining room and from the main bedroom. All areas have inset ceiling lights. The apartment is carpeted in the hall and living areas with tiled floors to both bathrooms. 

Greenacres is within a 10 minutes walk of Branksome Chine beach making this location perfect for strolls along the promenade. At Branksome Chine itself is the brand new Rockwater Village, which combines restaurant as well as fitness and wellness. There is a 7 mile stretch of award winning blue flag beaches to be enjoyed there is an array of other places to stop for food, drink or an ice cream. From Branksome Chine it is an easy stroll into Bournemouth Centre or in the opposite direction to Sandbanks which is the entrance to Poole Harbour; the 2nd biggest natural harbour in the world.

There are a number of activities to be enjoyed given the close proximity to the beach and Poole Harbour itself, if it is body boarding, kite surfing or paddle boarding you are into you really would be spoilt for choice as the list goes on. Don’t forget that the block is pet friendly and there is no better place to walk with man’s best friend than the beach. And for energetic people(and dogs) Dorset’s Jurassic coast is a key destination for walkers. This is over the chain ferry at Sandbanks, which is also the gateway to the Purbeck Hills which accommodates the area’s large cycling community. For golfers the area is full of recommended courses the closest being Parkstone which is in the top 100 in the UK. Tennis courts and a green bowls lawn in Leicester Road are a short walk. Or a lazy day on Sandbanks beach is always good.

If you enjoy meeting friends for long lazy lunches or fancy a spot of shopping you have a number of options, especially if you don’t want to take the car, Westbourne and Canford Cliffs village are both within walking distance.

Westbourne is full of an eclectic mix of eateries and coffee shops as is Bournemouth. Locally Westbourne is considered very much a village with lots of independent shops and the UK’s smallest cinema with just 19 seats. The pick of eateries are The Dancing Duck, Indi’s, Renoufs cheese and wine bar, the award winning Chez Fred fish ‘n chips and a real traditional pub-The Porterhouse. And in Canford Cliffs, don’t miss going to The Cliff gastro pub.

There are some real ‘treat’ restaurants locally. On special occasions try out Rick Stein’s that sits on the edge of Poole Harbour and the Pig on the Beach in Studland with the some of the most special views over Poole Harbour and Old Harry Rocks.

For shopping there is an M&S food store in Westbourne and a larger store Tesco or Lidl at Branksome , all walking distance from Greenacres. For ladies the famous HND hairdressing and beauty salon is in the local Canford Cliffs village.

From Greenacres you have easy access(less than 2 minutes) to the Wessex Way which is dual carriageway to the A31, from here you have access to the New Forest, Southampton and the UK motorway network. Bournemouth International Airport is within 9 miles and Branksome Railway Station is closeby and has direct routes to London(2 hours) and Manchester. And from Poole Harbour there are daily ferries to France and the Channel Isles.

Flat living but with the benefits, and not the hassle, of the grounds and the swimming pool.

Living in Christchurch

Christchurch is a delight; a harbourside town of character and charm located where the Avon and Stour rivers flow into Christchurch Harbour.

Positioned between Bournemouth and the New Forest, Christchurch is a lively town with mainline station and a good variety of independents and national brands (from Boots to Waitrose). It has become something of a foodie destination: chock-a-block with cafes, pubs, and restaurants, such as The Jetty on Mudeford Quay. It is also the venue for a popular food and wine festival that attracts some high profile chefs.

Other attractions include the priory, castle ruins, nature reserves, nearby beaches and Mudeford Quay with ferry service to Mudeford Spit (with iconic beach huts) and Hengistbury Head. A wide range of activities are available such as cricket, golf and watersports. Another boon for families are the schools – rated at least ‘good’ by Ofsted, while Christchurch Infant School, Mudeford Infant and Junior Schools and Twynham comprehensive are all graded ‘outstanding’.

An attractive range of property includes architect-designed new builds, fine Georgian houses and modern townhouses, some in waterside locations and with views across Christchurch Harbour.
