Sandbanks is a small peninsula or spit crossing the mouth of Poole Harbour on the English Channel coast at Poole in Dorset, England. At this place, favorite destination of billionaires, you’ll find magnificent villa that is looking for a new owner. It is the largest, most expensive and most luxurious real estate on the peninsula that has been in sale, and its price is a whopping €10 million.
Its name is Mooring, and this is logical, given that this luxurious villa has its own private wooden port and is one of the most desirable properties in the eyes of English rich people. Its owners, successful entrepreneur Chris Thomas and wife Sue, have invested around €6.5 million in building this palatial villa that can without any doubt compete with prestigious five-star hotels.
Spread over 13,000 square feet – the equivalent size of seven detached houses – the state-of-the art property comes with five en-suite bedrooms, three reception rooms, an office, cinema room, indoor swimming pool, sauna and steam room, gym, changing rooms, garden room and a wine room. There is also a guest suite that has its own en-suite bedroom, kitchenette and living room.
Outside the mansion, there is a gate house which has a bedroom, kitchen and shower room and a boat house, which boasts of its own kitchenette and wet room. Terraces and balconies make the most of the harbour views and the sunken garden leads to a private jetty. The house is ‘fully automated’ and the entertainment system, lighting and shutters can be controlled by an iPad.
