Entrance to Property & Garage

Up a small flight of steps to a carpeted communal hall for just 2 flats.
Part glazed front door. Inside there is a coat cupboard and a large shelved storage cupboard which the owners had built. Telephone entry security system. Huge hall. Ideal for an office space. It is carpeted and has a thermostatically controlled radiator. There were previously skylights which the new owners can expose. With a ceiling height of 3.3 meters and banisters overlooking the kitchen, the property has a feel of a maisonette.
Living room/Dining Area

Western Court is within a 10 minutes walk of Branksome Chine beach making this location perfect for summer evening and weekend strolls along the promenade. At Branksome Chine itself is Branksome Beach Cafe, a great treat either before or after the walk for a coffee & cake or spot of lunch. There is a 7 mile stretch of award winning blue flag beaches to be enjoyed there is an array of other places to stop for food, drink or an ice cream. From Branksome Chine it is an easy stroll into Bournemouth Centre or in the opposite direction to Sandbanks which is the entrance to Poole Harbour; the 2nd biggest natural harbour in the world.
There are a number of activities to be enjoyed given the close proximity to the beach and Poole Harbour itself, if it is body boarding, kite surfing or paddle boarding you are into you really would be spoilt for choice as the list goes on. And for energetic people Dorset's Jurassic coast is a key destination for walkers. This is over the chain ferry at Sandbanks, which is also the gateway to the Purbeck Hills which accommodates the area's large cycling community. For golfers the area is full of recommended courses the closest being Parkstone which is in the top 100 in the UK. Tennis courts and a green bowls lawn in Leicester Road are a short walk. Or a lazy day on Sandbanks beach is always good.
If you enjoy meeting friends for long lazy lunches or fancy a spot of shopping you have a number of options, especially if you don't want to take the car, Westbourne and Canford Cliffs village are both within walking distance.
Westbourne is full of an eclectic mix of eateries and coffee shops as is Bournemouth. The local Daily Echo ran a recent article ‘Why Westbourne is foodie heaven’. Locally Westbourne is considered very much a village with lots of independent shops and the UK’s smallest cinema with just 19 seats. The pick of eateries are The Dancing Duck, Indi’s. Renoufs cheese and wine bar, the award winning Chez Fred fish ‘n chips and a real traditional pub-The Porterhouse. And in Canford Cliffs, don’t miss going to The Cliff pub.
There are some real 'treat' restaurants locally. On special occasions try out Rick Stein's that sits on the edge of Poole Harbour and the Pig on the Beach in Studland with the some of the most special views over Poole Harbour and Old Harry Rocks.
