Remiss not to include the balcony as an integral and incredibly valuable addition to the accommodation as we would imagine many happy hours will be spent here. This is a very large wrap-around design returning to one side of the apartment and enjoys undoubtedly some of the best panoramic views one could wish for. Not only does the view reach out over Poole Park but extends well beyond taking in the outstanding natural beauty of Poole Harbour but reaching out further to Brownsea island a little into the distance. Unlike so may sea views the Harbour activity ensures that there is always something of interest that catches the eye.
