Tenure: FreeholdHurn Court.
Ash Cottage is situated in the delightful private grounds of the Hurn Court estate. The ten acre estate is located to the west of the Avon Valley, north of the River Stour and just inside the boundary of Christchurch. At the heart of the estate is a grade two listed manor house, which is now divided into eight individual homes. In total, the estate is home to 35 properties and we are delighted to present a unique opportunity for you to own one of those dwellings. One of the beauties of living in Hurn Court is the convenient location. You have the peace and tranquillity of residing in the countryside, but also have Christchurch and Bournemouth on your doorstep. Hurn Court is accessed by two fabulous private driveways. The north drive access is from Hurn Court Lane and the south drive access is from Holdenhurst Village Road. The south drive is particularly pleasing on the eye as you cross a bridge over the River Stour and a smaller bridge over a tributary called the Leaden Stour. The entrance to both driveways is gated, which provides a wonderful sense of privacy and exclusivity. The grounds at Hurn Court are rich in wildlife. On the banks of the River Stour, you will be treated to the sight of herons and pheasants. Sailing on the River Stour you will be able to enjoy the romantic view of flotillas of ducks and swans. The estate is also home to a range of different species of birds and roaming the surrounding fertile farmland are families of roe deer.
Living at Hurn Court
The convenient position of the estate means that you are only 15 minutes from the centre of Bournemouth or the seaside. Just five minutes outside the south drive you have access to the shops at Castle Point. Just two minutes from the north drive is Bournemouth airport. Access to the A338 is also very quick from both the north and south drives. Residents of the estate enjoy access to two communal tennis courts and also access to the vast communal grounds and gardens. With the River Stour running through the estate, there is the opportunity to enjoy a spot of fishing (permit required). The estate is a utopia for those interested in gardening. In addition, there are communal compost heaps, bonfires for garden waste and a wood store for chopping wood. The Hurn Court Management Company is responsible for the upkeep for the communal areas, which include the extensive well-maintained grounds, driveways, bridges, electronic gates, tennis courts, trees and more.
Ash Cottage is a well-presented, two bedroom cottage, which has a private, south facing courtyard garden and single garage.
