This beautifully presented family home is located in Hengistbury Head (also known as East Southbourne) which is named after the scenic headland which forms a natural boundary between Christchurch Bay and Poole Bay. This is a pleasant residential area comprising mostly coastal chalets and mid-century family houses on wide roads and quiet closes.
There are golf and sailing clubs in the area. However, Hengistbury Head itself provides a tremendous local facility, and an escape to be enjoyed year-round. This is one of the most important Sites of Special Scientific Interest in England: a nature reserve of grassland and woodland with unspoiled beaches and, from its highest point, spectacular panoramic views over Christchurch Harbour and Christchurch Bay. The inner harbour bustles with yachts and windsurfers. There is a south-facing pebble beach and sandy beaches where the headland narrows at Mudeford spit – renowned for its colourful beach huts. Here there is also a good cafe and ferry services across the mouth of Christchurch Harbour to Mudeford Quay.
Hengistbury Head’s schools are considered to be very good. Accessibility is good, too. The nearest mainline station is Christchurch with services to London taking around two hours, while the A35 provides access to road networks.
