The estate agent said the apartment would suit a family as the shallow harbour is a safe place for children to paddle. 

He also highlighted the unique features of the property, including the private boat store which has direct access to the water. 

Mr Dunford said: 'It is an unusual apartment, the builder was David Wyatt, whose done some really fabulous buildings and the block of apartments they built just before this one was the highest amount paid per square foot and this was a similar style.

'It's all about the location and with apartments like this the best is either the penthouse or the ground floor. Because this is ground floor it comes with a decent sized garden and the boat store.

The flat is on the market is on the ground floor of an apartment building overlooking the harbour

The property has three bedrooms, with each one coming with a private dressing room as well as an en suite bathroom

Poole Harbour is a tourist hotspot (pictured) with stunning views at both sunrise and sunset, with the apartment facing south west to make the most of the impressive sundowns

The luxury apartment sits right on the waterfront (circled) on the edge of Poole Harbour, close to the exclusive Sandbanks peninsula

The ground floor flat comes with a private boat that can easily be wheeled to the harbour's waters from the house

'This is a large apartment at 3,700sq ft and comes with a large boat store big enough for a full size RIB.

'That section of the water is very shallow. You can walk out 800 metres and still only be waist-deep so it's great for children.

'The Sea Legs boat has wheels that pop down so even if the tide is out you can trundle down with your boat and then lift the wheels in.

'The property is front line, you can come out to your back garden and you're straight into the harbour.'
