An ordinary-looking family home has gone on sale for a staggering £2.5m in Dorset – and it has an incredible selling point.
The 2,244 sq ft property boasts a modern, open-plan kitchen which leads seamlessly into the dining room and two ground-floor living areas.
On top of this, the family home also has three sizeable bedrooms – with the master suite attached to its own private sun terrace.
But while the house has been kitted out with modern interiors, including a sleek kitchen and waterfall showers in the en-suites, it’s the property’s location that explains the staggering asking price.
The family home – which was built in 2004 – is situated in a stunning area of natural beauty overlooking Blue Lagoon in Poole, Dorset.

And if the incredible views weren’t enough, the property also has direct access to the water from the south-westerly facing garden.
A large private deck allows the owners to take a boat out into Poole Harbour and follow it beyond the English Channel.
The current owners – who have lived in the property since 2014 – have also added a wooden bench to the decking to admire the awe-inspiring sunsets.
Poole Harbour is renowned as the second largest natural harbour in the world and the picturesque Brownsea Island is also just a short distance away from the house.
What’s more, the surrounding neighbourhood also plays a part in the property’s £2.5m price tag.
The house is situated in a quiet cul-de-sac by Salterns Marina and is a short walk from millionaire hangout Sandbanks and its award-winning beach.
Sandibanks Millionaires Row is reportedly home to celebrities such as Harry and Jamie Redknapp, chef Rick Stein and Graeme Souness.
Along with the private sun terrace and pontoon, the house also boasts a sizeable driveaway which fits multiple cars.
The local estate agents says the property would make the perfect family home or a holiday hideaway for someone with a passion for sailing.
The family home boasts a modern, open-plan kitchen which leads seamlessly into the dining room and ground-floor living area.

Julia Arden, director at Lloyds Property, who are selling the property, said: ‘Whoever buys the house, it will be for the location. The views are panoramic and there’s direct water access from the pontoon.
‘You can access the lagoon and go on out to the harbour. It is really stunning, it feels a bit like you’re on a cruise ship, it’s just beautiful.
‘For someone who wants to be on the water, there is very little choice available, something like this is rare to come on the market. Waterfront homes is what people want.
‘The owners have been there for about eight or nine years. It’s been their full-time main home and they’ve been very happy there, they love the views.’
