All bedrooms are built overlooking the garden and ocean, as have all main reception rooms on the ground floor, while the south-west facing exterior of the house is made entirely from double-glazed glass with powder-coated aluminium framing, creating a synergy between the house and the harbour. The uniquely-shaped roof, which forms a curved shape in solid metal, adds to the modern beachside theme that continues into the garden itself, which boasts a wooden decking area (with built-in Jacuzzi) and landscaped garden with direct waterfront access.

The interior maintains a holiday home style, with well-appointed open-plan family rooms and linked kitchen/dining/sitting areas, which open out onto a raised terrace looking over the garden. On the first floor, bedrooms are equally highly-fitted, with large dressing rooms in the master and main guest bedroom, and en suites attached to the two smaller guest bedrooms. The two larger bedrooms also feature access to a first floor balcony, which juts out towards the sea in a unique wave-shape form.

The minimalist design of the home is modern contemporary throughout, with pale hues and bold, stand-out furnishings, using a simple colour palette and premium technologies to create a residence that is welcoming and fosters social interaction. The living room and bedrooms use small splashes of colour to complement the sea view, while other living areas such as the kitchen offset the pale shades with linear brown and bronze embellishments. Wood furnishings are used throughout, creating a natural look and feel which extends out to the wooden decking and into the garden, bringing the home together as one cohesive design.

This waterfront property has all the makings of an ideal family or holiday home. A luxurious collection of rooms designed in the most up-to-date styles using high-quality furnishings, it is already one of the most significant properties in Poole, and a magnificent architectural structure both inside and out, contributing a modern elegance to the harbour and coastline.
