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.
The property is approached via resin driveway providing parking for several vehicles and benefiting from an EV charging point.
There is a single gate to the right of the property and a double gate to the left side of the property, both providing access to the rear of the house and garden.
The split level garden is offering a large patio area on ground level, perfect for entertainment with family and friends. The raised section is mainly laid to lawn with a garden shed at rear and patio area.
Living in Christchurch
Christchurch is a delight; a harbourside town of character and charm located where the Avon and Stour rivers flow into Christchurch Harbour.
Positioned between Bournemouth and the New Forest, Christchurch is a lively town with mainline station and a good variety of independents and national brands (from Boots to Waitrose). It has become something of a foodie destination: chock-a-block with cafes, pubs, and restaurants, such as The Jetty on Mudeford Quay. It is also the venue for a popular food and wine festival that attracts some high profile chefs.
Other attractions include the priory, castle ruins, nature reserves, nearby beaches and Mudeford Quay with ferry service to Mudeford Spit (with iconic beach huts) and Hengistbury Head. A wide range of activities are available such as cricket, golf and watersports. Another boon for families are the schools – rated at least ‘good’ by Ofsted, while Christchurch Infant School, Mudeford Infant and Junior Schools and Twynham comprehensive are all graded ‘outstanding’.
An attractive range of property includes architect-designed new builds, fine Georgian houses and modern townhouses, some in waterside locations and with views across Christchurch Harbour.
