Parkstone is an area of Poole, split into Upper and Lower Parkstone. Upper Parkstone is named as such as it merely lays on higher ground when compared to ‘Lower’ Parkstone.
This being said, Lower Parkstone is the more sought-after area due to its proximity to the shoreline and it is more residential than the Upper area.
Here are a few key points about Parkstone and the surrounding area:
Being a part of Poole means you have easy access to the second biggest natural harbour in the world, which boasts some of the most expensive properties in Britain.
Beautiful public parks, with miles of sandy beaches, makes for a great stroll in the outdoors.
The schools throughout Parkstone and Poole, and in the local areas of Christchurch and Bournemouth are of incredibly high standards.
Parkstone was originally a ‘tything’ of the Parish of Cranford Magna, but in 1833 the Church of St Peter was built here, to serve the growing community.
By 1865, Parkstone had become its own parish. Roughly 1000 people lived here at this point, and the parish stretched down to Sandbanks.
In 1870, there was a decision to make a larger church, of which the construction did not complete until 1883.
This church is one of the largest churches in the Diocese of Salisbury, and even comes complete with a throne for the Bishop.
Later on, a massive Italian Basilica was created up the top of the hill. Recently, in 2005, this church became the first Romanian Orthodox Church in the UK.
Parkstone has seen enormous increases in property prices over the five years, to March 2020 reaching 16.52% on average.
The average house price in Bournemouth During March 2020 £322,996. This is under the average for the county of Dorset by almost £20,000.
Since March 2019, the property market here has increased by 4.37%.
This is an incredible increase for a singular 12 month period. If this increases then properties here will become highly coveted.
In terms of property types, flats in Parkstone sold for an average of £220,019 and terraced houses for £281,075 – This is according to Zoopla estimates.
