This superb, Grade II listed, semi-detached, Georgian townhouse stands elegantly in a convenient central location within the historic centre of Christchurch. This imposing home has a large, enclosed lawned garden with outside seating, and private parking for up to four cars, unusual for such a central town setting. Inside, there are six bedrooms (most have TVs), plus four bathrooms, and the spacious living room, with its huge bay window and high ceiling, has a 60" TV with Virgin Media package. Two of the bedrooms have additional beds for guests who require flexible sleeping arrangements. Formerly the vicarage, Quay House is steeped in history and is ideally located immediately adjoining Christchurch Priory and the Priory Quarter, yet less than a 5-minute walk to all of the shops, eateries, amenities and a cinema. The Quay is also only a 5-minute walk, with waterside dining and from where ferries can transport you across Christchurch Harbour to Mudeford, with its fine beaches, and on to Hengistbury Head. The Priory is a beautiful historic church dating back to Norman times, and is the longest church in England, attracting visitors worldwide.
There are some excellent golf courses within close proximity, including Remedy Oak, Ferndown, Queens Park, Meyrick Park, Parkstone and Broadstone. Nearby Mudeford Quay is a calm area of water, and popular with sailing, fishing, kayaking and windsurfing enthusiasts. Stanpit Marsh is a Site of Special Scientific Interest, and the wetlands are popular for birdwatching. Within easy reach are Bournemouth, 6 miles, and Poole, with its award winning beaches and seaside attractions, is also nearby. Other popular places to visit are Swanage, Studland Bay, Brownsea Island, Knoll Gardens, Paultons Park, Furzey Gardens, Salisbury with its medieval cathedral and Marwell Zoo with Peppa Pig World. Further afield, Stonehenge, Winchester Cathedral, New Forest Wildlife Park, Monkey World, The Tank Museum near Wool, Beaulieu Museum, Exbury Gardens and the New Forest National Park, with its miles of scenic walks and heathland and where ponies roam freely, are all worth visiting. Maritime Southampton, with its nautical interest, also has ferry trips over to the Isle of Wight. Beach 3 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 110 yards.
