The former HARRY Redknapp pad broke the record for the most expensive property for sale on Sandbanks.
Harbor Gate, a waterfront mansion previously owned by Harry and Sandra Redknapp, has been sold for £ 10million.
The eight-figure sum eclipses the £ 400,000 price paid once for the same property in 1995. The Redknapps bought it in 2001 for £ 3million.
Harbor Gate sits arguably on the best land on the Sandbanks Peninsula, backing onto the entrance to Poole Harbor, which is usually packed with passing boats.
It includes a kitchen and breakfast room, a dining room, a living room, a cinema room, a library, an indoor swimming pool, a gym with sauna and an office.
The master bedroom has a large en-suite bathroom, an even larger walk-in closet and a balcony overlooking the water.
Outside there are two sunny terraces and a private jetty which has ‘parking’ for two jet skis which are hoisted into the water by means of a hydraulic lift.
The property also offers a double garage with a professional dog grooming tub and parking for 10 cars – and a three-bedroom detached caretaker’s house worth £ 1million.
The house is being sold for almost £ 2million more than the previous record price of £ 8.09million – which was paid for the neighboring mansion in 2018.
The six bedroom house on Millionaire’s Playground in Poole Harbor, Dorset is owned by entrepreneur Barry Bester.
The Topps Tiles founder has wiped the floor with the property market buying Harbor Gate from the Redknaps for £ 6.9million in 2015.
Steve Isaacs, of local Luxury and Prestige real estate agents, who handled the sale, said: “We can confirm that the house has sold and that this is a historic sale as it is the most recent house. most valuable of Sandbanks to have sold.
“The house has arguably the best position on Sandbanks. It sits on a double lot and comes with a lodge house on the lot which would be a pretty valuable house on its own.
“There are now more buyers than sellers.
“This has been fueled by wealthy people who have moved from London and other parts of the country as well as by those looking for additional accommodation.”
