A SANDBANKS house has smashed the record for the most expensive sale of all time on the exclusive peninsula.

A London-based woman purchased the house for £8.09million, beating the previous record of £6.4m set in 2008.

The house, named The Moorings, boasts 11,712ft of floor space and is one of the most technologically advanced houses ever built in England.

The Moorings was designed by local builders, Kingsbury Homes, in 2009 with “high ceilings” and “beautifully oversized windows” for magnificent views of Poole Harbour, Old Harry Rocks and Brownsea Island.

Based on the exclusive Sandbanks peninsula, the house has six en-suite bedrooms, and a guest suite fitted with its own kitchenette and living room.

The main house also has a cinema, wine room, office, spa and garden room. In the house 12 Wi-Fi spots can be found and devices like heating and lighting can be controlled via a smart phone.

There is a gatehouse which benefits from a kitchen, shower room and first floor studio.

At the end of the sunken garden, a boat house can be found with a kitchenette, gas fire and wet room. As well as enough storage for four jet skis.

Keith Fensom, who works for Saville Canford Cliffs and handled the sale, said: “I consider this to be the most desirable grand property on the exclusive Sandbanks peninsula.

“The Moorings is a timeless architectural package that will age graciously and charm its owners and visitors for generations.”
