'This is the rare opportunity to purchase a home with a magnificent kitchen designed by an internationally acclaimed chef, perfect for all those buyers who have discovered a passion for baking or cooking during the lockdown restrictions.

Fittingly for the home of a professional cook, it also boasts a large 'Parisian-style' open kitchen with pea green shaker cabinets, integrated Smeg appliances and reclaimed school science lab counter tops. 

The property is on the market with Dexters. Ed Burchett, sales director at the estate agents, said: 'The quality of living space on offer and originality of design make this apartment stand out and we are anticipating a very high level of interest from buyers. 

Steve Isaacs, director of Luxury and Prestige in Sandbanks, said: 'Sandbanks is the ultimate lifestyle location in the UK, though we know there's only a fortunate few who are lucky enough to afford to live in the area.

Rachel explained she was inspired by the multi-functional approach taken in European homes. The bed in the master bedroom, pictured, can be folded into the wall to create more space. Meanwhile the bookshelf that separates it from the second bedroom (pictured) can be moved to combine the rooms. There are also two in-built desks in the bookshelf that can be used
