<< Back


There are only six apartments remaining for sale at AJC Group’s Sonnet development, located on a clifftop on the West Cliff, in the coastal town of Bournemouth. The £10m scheme is in one of the most sought after locations in Dorset, with each home boasting uninterrupted views of the English Channel.

The striking contemporary building, designed by ARC Architects, consists of 14 luxury two-bedroom apartments. Each home has direct access to West Cliff Gardens, a secure underground parking space and bike storage, private outdoor space of either a terrace or balcony, and professionally landscaped communal gardens. The high specification includes an air source heat pump, to achieve a high EPC – B rating, enabling purchasers to lower their carbon footprint and benefit from Green Mortgage rates. Prices range from £555,000 to £875,000, with the largest apartment being 1200 sq ft. The remaining six homes are ready to move into.

Mark Adams, Director of AJC Group, said: “We have thoroughly enjoyed welcoming the first purchasers to this luxury development and are delighted that 60% have now sold. Sonnet’s prized location, accessibility to the seafront and Bournemouth’s vibrant town centre, makes it a very special proposition. The large windows maximise the views, creating beautifully glamorous living space. We would urge all those who are interested in moving to a beautiful new home here to book an apartment tour at their earliest convenience.”

Each apartment is fitted with herringbone style LVT flooring, Quartz worktops, shaker style matt kitchen units, with premium appliances throughout. The hotel style bathrooms feature luxury sanitaryware. All homes have access to a communal lift from the basement parking level to the top floor. AJC Group will provide all purchasers with a £1,500 voucher for Interiors by Haroys custom fitted wardrobes.

Only a stone’s throw away from Bournemouth town centre, the development is close to an array of amenities, including shops, leisure facilities, restaurants and bars. Also on the doorstep is seven miles of award-winning blue flag beaches, along with many other picturesque destinations, such as The New Forest National Park in Hampshire, and Durdle Door – one of Dorset’s most iconic landmarks.

Ben Jesty, Manager at Winkworth Estate Agents, who is marketing The Sonnet development, said: “Due to the appeal of Bournemouth’s golden sands, homes with spectacular sea views are scarce, especially this close to the seafront and town centre. AJC Group’s Sonnet development stands out above the rest because of its striking architecture, attention to detail and specification. With so many features included – like secure parking and direct access to the historic West Cliff Gardens – the six remaining homes are very good value for money.”

“This development is popular with people seeking to move away from a life in the city to enjoy the incredible lifestyle benefits of living by the coast. Waking up to a view of the English Channel is so inspiring! With no shortage of train services to London, as well as regional towns and cities, it is a fantastic location, which other neighbourhoods just cannot compete with.”

The development is only a 10-minute drive or 30-minute walk to Bournemouth train station, which has direct services running to London in 1hr 50, stopping at both Southampton and Winchester. With easy access to the A35, it takes only 15 minutes to get to Poole by car. Southampton is reachable in 45 minutes via the A338, with London just over two hours away by road.

AJC Group is on track to deliver over 200 mixed-tenure homes during 2023, reflecting a total construction value in excess of £100m. The firm has become one of the most active residential development specialists across the Wessex region.

Seven schemes are currently under construction by AJC Group, including sites in the villages of Okeford Fitzpaine and Hazelbury Bryan, both near Blandford Forum. Developments on Lindsay Road, The Sloop and Herbert Avenue are all located in Poole. The company has also recently started construction at one of its largest projects, which will deliver 57 affordable houses and apartments for Aster Group within the former Dorchester Brewery regeneration scheme.
