All apartments have the benefit of private balconies or secluded terraces for outside hospitality.

Riccardo Dawson, head of design at Shape Real Estate, says: “We fell in love with the Sandbanks’ lifestyle the first time we visited and felt that we could add something positive to the area by bringing our London mentality of design, service and great experience, down to the south coast. Our commitment to the area and long-standing customer satisfaction is part of the Shape brand values.

“Crosstrees is one of the developments I am most proud of; a selection of 35 extremely high specification apartments with the vernacular of Canford Cliffs deep-set within its design. The level of attention to detail, from the specification to the entrance sequence, has been painstakingly analysed to create the best experience and usability possible. Every apartment is unique with the owner’s lifestyle driving the design and weaved into the fabric.”
