Uninterrupted sea views, energising sunrises and romantic sunsets create an enviable backdrop to daily living within this luxury apartment. From both inside and out on the patio terrace, the views are spectacular, connecting you to the water from both the main living area, and the primary bedrooms. Most sea view apartments in Southbourne are separated from the beach by a road, tourists & noise…not at The Breakwaters- just meters from the clifftop, this development is one of a few developments that will ever be found on the South side of Southbourne Coast Road, offering better privacy and peace of mind; after all, no one will be building in the sea any time soon!
This ground floor apartment makes entertaining easy thanks to a large, sheltered paved terrace, sheltered from prying eyes on the sand (something not many beach apartments offer), directly accessed from a patio door in the main living space, or from the primary bedroom…just imagine- wake, coffee in bed, radio on in the background, overlooking the water. Only a low-level brick wall and wild flower bed separate you and THAT view. The terrace is high enough above the shore that you won’t have beach goers looking up at you, which is rare!
Finished to a high specification throughout and amplified by a list of premium fixtures and fittings, this home really is ready to go. From the modern shaker style kitchen, with its built-in appliances (fridge-freezer, washing machine, dishwasher, triple ovens, hob and wine cooler), to the exquisitely floor to ceiling tiled shower rooms. Even the main living space has a fresh feeling, having been recently decorated and offering plenty of space for large sofas plus a dining set/ work desk. New windows throughout offer great energy performance but more impressively, boast integral magnetic blinds! Gas central heating throughout and underfloor heating in the kitchen add to a feel of luxury, plus towel rails in the showrooms offer the flexibility of traditional water heating or an instant electric burst for warm towels, fast.
With direct access down to the sand, The Breakwaters is as close to our award-winning beaches as possible…and they stretch for miles! Some will look at this as an opportunity for a holiday home, a lock up and leave. Southbourne is currently THE place to be, with plenty of pubs, restaurants, and coffee spots across the coast, and along Southbourne Grove- a booming community hub that offers a seaside lifestyle that many can only dream of. Christchurch and Bournemouth are a few minutes away by car or the reliable public transport network, plus rail services from Bournemouth and Christchurch offer speedy access to London.
Entering the apartment, you’ll notice that there’s no dark, narrow walkway but a wide and bright hallway that sprawls into all rooms. Sea glimpses greet you from the moment you step inside. This means room to move about during the day and space for often forgotten but important items like shoe racks and extra storage. Dual aspect windows ensure the living-dining room is light late into summer evenings and thanks to those magnetic integral shades, you can easily control the sun entering to create an ambiance for TV watching, reading or dining. Bedrooms are found at either end of the home, with the main family shower room next door to the second bedroom, practically an additional en suite for guests. Two large cupboards (one an airing cupboard), keep things tidy in additional to the built-in wardrobes in the primary bedroom. As you’ll see on our 3D virtual tour, the second bedroom is large enough for a full double bed, plus wardrobes; the bedrooms are true doubles here, with the current owner having a massive king size bed in the primary.
Allocated parking for two vehicles is arranged as one outside and one in a secure underground car park- many owners have opted to install extra storage boxes at the end of their spaces (handy for wetsuits, bikes etc!)
Having a Share of the Freehold (with a 999 yr lease), owners have much more control over how the building is managed, a tighter handle on finances and the ability to run a proactive approach to maintenance. It’s no wonder The Breakwaters is in such good condition, with the owners communicating via a WhatsApp group when necessary.
This is an opportunity to secure yourself a brilliant beachside lifestyle capped off by standout restaurants, pubs and cafes along with an array of essential amenities and access to local transport.
