Stacks has had an office covering Dorset, and especially the coast, since 1984 and has huge knowledge and experience in finding the right coastal home for you.
The coast of Dorset is as varied as the property that can be found in the county; from the spit of Sandbanks, jutting out into Poole Harbour, to the sandy beaches of the Isle of Purbeck, and around to the coves and harbour at Weymouth, the coast continues to the shingle and pebbles of Chesil Beach to the Jurassic cliffs to West Bay and beyond to Lyme Regis.
Properties in the area are just as varied, ranging from well-built bungalows to striking modern designs, with splendid Georgian townhouses and Coastguards’ stone cottages in between!
The coastline of Dorset from the west heading east encompasses the Jurassic Coast, which was made England’s first natural World Heritage site, capturing 190 million years of the earth’s history in 95 miles of geology. Chesil Beach is an 18 mile long shingle bank, reaching 40 feet high which separates the sea from the Fleet, a large lagoon, famous for its diverse habitat and bird life.
Further east one finds the famous horseshoe shaped Lulworth Cove and the standing rocks of Durdle Door, the sandy beaches of Swanage and Studland and the huge natural Poole Harbour, with its numerous islands. Sandbanks, a spit of land, now famed for its celebrity occupants and their ‘grand designs’ homes juts into the harbour at its entrance, affording a great two-way view to Sandbanks inhabitants and those looking on!
Just around the corner is Bournemouth with its sandy beaches and thriving community. With some of the highest sun hours in Britain, a University, airport and a huge variety of property, it is no wonder it ranks highly in ‘best places to live’ reports.
The whole coastline is as diverse as the county and can offer something for everyone; the huge knowledge that Stacks brings to the area’s property market saves you time finding the right part of the coast that suits you, and then securing it for you at the right price.
