Take a tour of this incredibly impressive Harbour front house in Poole

This is one waterfront property 'shore' to give you house envy!

Welcome to Harbour Front House, a five bedroom property nestled on the riverbanks of Poole, a stones throw from the illustrious Sandbanks.

The beautifully presented house offers a south westerly position, providing sensational views across Parkstone marina, the Sandbanks peninsula and the entrance to Poole Harbour.

As if the panoramic views of the harbour weren't enough to sell this property, wait until you see the space inside...

From the front, although still impressive, the property doesn't reveal the real extent of its prime location.

Wow! That's presumably the first thing every guest says when entering this house. The sheer scale of the entrance is grand, add to that the double cascading staircases with the overlooking floor above.

Then there's the view directly through the center of the house, out towards the harbour.  As far as first impressions go – they don't come much more impressive than this surely?!

This generous kitchen is the definition of coastal chic! The blue colour scheme echos the watery blues of the harbour, while the rounded walnut cabinetry feels like that of a luxury yacht.

The circular window seat and bar stools, at the counter, provide ample seating to make this the social hub of the house.

The elevated decking area is the perfect spot for alfresco entertaining. It's the ideal spot to sit and watch the world sail by.

The magnificent family  home is currently on the market with agents Savills, with an asking price of £5.5million.
