Luxury south coast living revealed by Dorset estate agents

Estate agents in Dorset are lucky enough to handle the sale of some stunning properties. Many of the most illustrious homes and apartments in Dorset are set along the county's beautiful coastline, with the fine sandy beaches, cosmopolitan harbours and pine-swathed cliffs forming an irresistible backdrop. Here's Winkworth's guide to where you'll find the most luxurious houses and flats for sale in Dorset. Sandbanks - this part of Dorset, close to Poole, needs no introduction. It's regularly reported to be the fourth most expensive real estate destination in world, when calculated by square foot. Overall sold house prices in Sandbanks over the last year were up a massive 45% on the previous year, according to the latest statistics from property portal Rightmove. It's estimated that there are approximately 70 properties lining Sandbank's peninsula, and the 40 or so that enjoy direct waterside access to Poole's harbour are the most coveted - especially among those with a keen interest in sailing. The older-style houses for sale in Sandbanks are often bought by purchasers with ambitious development plans, seeking to knock down the existing structure and replacing it with an architecturally-designed modern home. Poole - Poole town and harbour, known as a centre of pottery excellence and dolphin spotting, is home to some of the most expensive properties for sale in Dorset. Divided into exclusive neighbourhoods that include Branksome Park, Lilliput and Lower Parkstone, Poole attracts buyers looking for a private setting that's moments from a cosmopolitan town centre. The most coveted addresses include Martello Road, Western Avenue, Haigh Avenue, Bury Road, Dean Swift Crescent and St Aldhelms Close, where buyers can expect to pay in excess of £1 million for one of the sprawling mansions. Highcliffe - Highcliffe is often chosen by home movers who like to a blend of coastal and countryside setting, as the town is a short drive from the enchanting New Forest. Dorset estate agents regularly hold waiting lists of buyers for roads like Mill Lane, Wharncliffe Road (where the new seafront development Seascape is attracting purchasers) and Stuart Road. Christchurch - with its harbour and exclusive enclaves, like Stanpit, Friars Cliff, Walkford and Mudeford, Christchurch is a discerning favourite among high-end house buyers with boats to moor. Dorset estate agents say Willow Way, Beaulieu Road and Quay Road are property hotspots as many homes set here enjoy waterside views with private moorings that grant direct access to the River Stour and Christchurch harbour. If a home on Dorset's coast tops your home moving list, or you have a property of distinction to sell in one of the above areas, please contact Winkworth today.
