Poole’s name has its roots in the Celtic word Bol, which means a place near a creek or water. It has been inhabited for over 2,500 years and has been home to Celts, the Romans, Anglo-Saxons and the Normans – among others. The area has always played an important role in commerce due to its historic harbour, especially as a trading route to North America. It experienced long periods of prosperity but the port was overtaken by other UK ports with deep-water harbours which could accommodate growing ship sizes, which Poole could not. Poole also played an instrumental role in World War II, especially as a base and embarkment point for armed forces heading to France on D-Day.
The Poole property market boasts a wide selection of property types, ranging from small studios and flats to large period homes and everything in between. There is a diverse range of housing in Poole, properties for single professionals, couples, families, retirees, students enrolled at the nearby university and a thriving holiday property market. The array of properties available has attracted buyers of all types and budgets. Whether you’re looking to put down your roots or add to your portfolio, there are certainly opportunities in the Poole market.
Specifically, you’ll usually find a wide selection of period homes in Poole, including Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian properties with bags of character and iconic features. These period homes typically offer wonderful internal and external space, which attracts families looking to climb the property ladder or secure their forever home. You’ll also find older properties that have been given a modern twist through independent high-quality renovations, as well as new build flats and housing developments. Some of the local period homes have been remodelled by investors to create in-demand flats with tall ceilings and more space. There are many modern developments with excellent local facilities and access routes, and of course some of the finest contemporary superhomes on the south coast as well as substantial modern homes built in more traditional styles. The area really does offer something for everyone.
Several areas are of peak interest among buyers, including but not limited to Upton, Canford Heath, Hamworthy, Longfleet, Oakdale and Parkstone. The latter is a highly-desired property location for families and professionals looking to settle in Poole. Those wishing to purchase a holiday-let property should focus their search on properties close to the coastline, either on or nearby to The Quay Road and Poole’s historic harbour, which is only second to Sydney as the largest natural harbour in the world.
