PROPERTY DESCRIPTION

Hurn Court is situated on the western periphery of the Avon Valley, north of the River Stour, between Bournemouth and the historic town of Christchurch. It dates back to the 11th Century when it was a monastic dwelling associated with Christchurch Priory. The Estate came into the ownership of the Earl of Malmesbury in the 1700s (family name Harris, latterly Fitzharris) who redeveloped the property as their country seat, then known as Heron Court. The property has long association with many notable figures, in

particular the composer George Frederick Handel, Lord Nelson, the author Henry Fielding and the famed "hostess" of Prince Edward, Lillie Langtry.

The surrounding fertile farmland is retained to this day by the Malmesbury Estate who some years ago sold the re-named Hurn Court and it became Hurn Court School.

Following the closure of the school in the late 1980's the main house has been divided into 8 individual units and with the adjoining coach house/ stable block and houses in the grounds, there are now a total of 35 properties on the Estate enjoying approx. 10 acres of grounds adjoining the River Stour and accessed via electrically operated security gates from both Hurn (Christchurch) and Holdenhurst Village (Bournemouth).

Hurn Court is truly a unique place to live, surrounded by open farmland and tennis courts a brisk walk from the main Manor House. Wildlife including pheasants, swans, herons and deer frequent the grounds yet it lies within 4 miles of both the centres of Christchurch and Bournemouth (10/15 mins each by car), 7 miles to Ringwood and only 1 mile to the A338 giving easy access to the M27 and approximately 2 hours to London.

Number 8 Hurn Court is a large and elegantly presented four-bedroom property, that is arranged over four floors, spanning in excess of 3500+ SqFt and offers stunning views.
