Christchurch is an historic market town located beside the sheltered waters of Christchurch Harbour with the New Forest to the east and Bournemouth’s lively seaside resort to the west.
This charming and picturesque town has been shaped over the centuries by its position at the confluence of the Rivers Avon and Stour. Features include waterside walks and parks, among them the Quomps, a grassland area frequently used as a venue for events, a Saxon watermill, 11th century Priory and 12th century castle ruins.
There is a thriving high street of quality independents, plus an excellent selection of bistros, cafes, pubs and restaurants, among them Captain’s Club Hotel and The King’s Arms. Christchurch is also home to the immensely popular Christchurch Food Festival.
The town attracts retirees, families and the active. Christchurch Harbour is ideal for paddleboarders, sailors and windsurfers, while families are drawn by the excellent schooling, including Twynham secondary school and sixth form college judged ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted.
Property ranges from character family homes and modern chalets to quayside developments. Communications are good: train services from Christchurch’s mainline station take around two hours into London while the A35 provides access to road networks.
The entrance hallway features oak engineered flooring that extends throughout, guiding you to all ground floor accommodations and providing access to the understairs storage.
Next door, a well-proportioned dining room offers ample space for dining furniture.
To the rear of the living area and at the heart of the home, lies a well-appointed kitchen/dining room. It features a good range of wall, floor, and drawer units with stylish compact laminate work surfaces, including a Belfast sink. Traditional radiators and handle fittings add to the charm, with the added benefit of bi-folding doors opening onto the rear patio and gardens.
Integrated appliances include a single oven with a four-ring halogen hob, complemented by an extractor fan overhead. Additionally, there’s a fridge freezer and a dishwasher.
Adjacent, there’s a practical utility room offering ample space and storage for white goods, with a convenient access door leading to the rear garden.
Upstairs, you’ll find three bedrooms, two of which are comfortable doubles with space for storage furniture. These bedrooms are serviced by a beautiful family bathroom, which features a roll-top bath with a rainfall shower head overhead, a hand wash basin with storage unit underneath, and a concealed WC. The bathroom is complete with feature mosaic tiled flooring.
Planning permission has been granted to create a loft conversion. The staircase for this conversion would lead from the landing, beginning from where the airing cupboard is currently located.
Outside, the property boasts generous and private south-west facing gardens, predominantly laid to lawn and bordered by mature hedging and shrubbery. At the rear of the garden, there are two storage sheds, with one providing access to the rear parking area and carport.
