Property Description

With unrivalled views from one of the highest points in Bournemouth, just a stones throw from sandy Bournemouth Beach, this penthouse apartment epitomises exclusivity. Indulge in panoramic views of Bournemouth promenade and inland, from THREE balconies. This apartment offers a sought after lifestyle atop a commanding, popular building.

This exquisite purpose built apartment block offers a private slice of coastal heaven, high up away from the hustle and bustle, while maintaining a feeling of connection to the local area.

Best Of Both.
Up on the 12th floor, you’re truly disconnected from the busy streets below, but never far from your favourite bar, restaurant and of course, our sandy beaches. Whether it’s enjoying evening drinks on the main balcony with guests or getting cosy with a movie up on the mezzanine floor, every moment here is spacial thanks to a rare feeling of homely warmth AND contemporary airiness. Those that draw energy from the water will be brimmed with vitality, comfortable knowing the sea is just a short walk away (we’ve done it in 12minutes, carrying a portable BBQ!)

Buyers need only inject their personal taste over time, with neutral colour schemes, integral appliances and quality materials throughout; this truly is a showcase of luxury, space and style in a sophisticated, light-filled package above all else (literally).

Richmond Gate is just moments from the beach, the gardens, town centre and the Wessex Way is easily accessible for a speedy exit from Bournemouth. Once your day on the water, evening at the pub or long work day comes to an end, retiring to this peaceful sanctuary is a delight. There’s plenty of storage, the kitchen offers ample worktop space, integral appliances and a gas hob. That’s right, gas means proper central heating too!


Panoramic Views. Several Of Them!
It’s hard to not be taken aback by the views from every room, all of which are slightly different. Firstly, full height windows in the living space   frame the skyline over Bournemouth Centre and of course, the sea. Two balconies are accessed from this space, with the smaller of the two facing slightly more easterly. The views continue up on the large mezzanine floor- this is where we’d set up our work station. The current owners utilise this level as a VERY cool guest bedroom space (we’re still waiting for our invite to stay!)

The sights continue in the bedrooms, with a completely different treetop aspect that stretches as far as the eye can see (not pictured, we’ve left you some angles to discover on viewings!). You even catch a sea view from one of two en suites (checking the surf whilst showering really is a luxury!) One bedroom benefits from an en suite with shower, toilet, and heated towel rail (plus an openable window) and the other boasts a walk-through wardrobe, and an en suite with shower, freestanding bath and THOSE VIEWS. Crucially, the bedrooms are bright without sitting directly in the hot sun all day- meaning no stuffy bedrooms to deal with at night time!

Once you’ve unglued your eyes from the stunning scenery, a bright and airy vibe is apparent throughout the penthouse thanks to a flowing layout and super high ceilings. Whilst being open plan, the space is zoned into dining and sitting areas that work naturally with the flow of life- the lounge area opens onto the largest balcony and the dining space is adjacent to the modern kitchen.


Unwind in the deep, freestanding roll top bath or blast away stress under the walk-in rain shower, you choose. You’ll enjoy soul-warming sunset colours across the bathroom either way! Exposed beams continue in the bathroom, extending that amalgamation of contemporary design with classy period features. The cast iron centrally-heated towel rail, a port hole style mirror and sleek, openable windows work together seamlessly in this consciously designed space. There is also an extra WC off the hallway- handy for when entertaining guests.

Offering a true penthouse lifestyle for those with the most refined taste, this home appeals to young and mature buyers, singles and couples, as a main residence or lock and leave base.
Richmond Gate is perfectly positioned to capture the all-day sun and this sophisticated home represents the essence of coastal apartment living, with captivating views from sunrise to sunset. Other amazing features to this gated building include TWO allocated parking spaces, a lift to the penthouse level, pets being allowed with permission and secure door entry system.
