The Triangle, being just a five minute walk from Bournemouth town center or the cliff tops, is an ideal location to live. We have every conceivable convenience on our door step.
The Triangle has seen considerable development in recent years starting with the bold investment by the local council to build the stunning new main library in 2002. This was followed by the revamping of the triangular public open space in 2010. With major growth and investment in St. Michaels C of E primary school in 2012-13, The Triangle is gathering momentum as the place to be and live. There is the close proximity of both new Hilton hotels ( with the attached penthouse up for a cool £ 3 million) and developments such as The Summit ( which is already sold out), Palms holiday flats and Taylor Wimpey- Coast development of flats, to name just a few, a stones throw away.
2015-2016 has already seen so many exciting and changing visions for the future of the area.
Property prices are still relatively low for such a location, however they are steadily rising as the Triangle has seen a revival of its property market, in some instances small guest houses and bed sits are now being converted back into the fashionable individual houses they once were. Considering the internal square footage of such properties, the currently low prices and, of course, the stunning location, a property in the Triangle could be a wise investment. It is said that Savills in The Guardian ( 2015 ) have been predicting Bournemouth in particular to outperform London in its property price gains over the next five years!
