Iridium | Mudeford, Christchurch is For Sale. Please enquire here: Iridium Mudeford house for sale

Iridium is a spectacular curved contemporary 4 storey house on the edge of Christchurch Harbour, near Bournemouth on the South Coast and on the edge of the new Forest. The contemporary large cottage is located within the grounds of the Christchurch Harbour hotel, and benefits from the hotel's facilites on site which include a wonderful spa and indoor pool complex. The harbour is ideal for dinghy sailing, windsurfing and kayaking, we have a jetty and small slipway for sailing dinghies, kayaks, rowing boats and windurfers.

Mudeford Quay is located on the mainland side at the narrow mouth to the harbour, with the famous beach huts on Hengistbury Head just across the narrow run of water. This immediately opens out to a wide, shallow harbour, where Iridium and the Christchuch Harbour Hotel lie on the bank. The harbour has a clearly marked deep channel and from here you can go upstream into Christchurch, a most interesting and pleasant town, where the river becomes three and you can continue to explore upstream in a dinghy or kayak, or hire a small motorboat fron Christchurch Quay.

Mudeford has village shops, cafés and pubs, and just a few minutes walk from Iridium brings you to Avon beach, a wonderful sandy beach with facilities including a beach café. Mudeford adjoins Christchurch which has a large priory church and grounds with numerous footpaths meandering between river and town through historic parts which can make a very interesting afternoon's walk. There are ancient ruins which you can visit on one riverside, and within a few minutes be in the town, then through to the main quay on the other side where the quayside park with a bandstand and excellent childrens playground and new free waterpark, public slipway for motorboats and foot ferry offering river cuises, really has something for everyone.

Christchurch in turn adjoins Bournemouth, which was built as a 'new' resort town in Victorian times and has ome of the best sandy beaches on the South Coast, as well as the shops and nightlife the famous seaside town has to offer.

There are excellent spa and pool facilities on site, which can be booked in advance directly with the Christchurch Harbour Hotel spa. There are two restaurants, The Jetty, formerley Rhodes South, and the Upper Deck in the hotel. Booking is advised before your stay to dine at either restaurant.

Alternatively book our chefs and waiters to provide a full restaurant experience in the cottage's own large kitchen/dining space or al fresco on the large deck with views over the harbour.

The four storey house was designed to make the most of the views from its harbourside location and has large decked balconies on all four levels, with views across the hotel lawn, and over the harbour to Hengistbury Head beyond. The lounge is on the top floor, with the kitchen/dining space directly below, so the living spaces have the best views.

The largest bedroom has wide folding sliding doors to it's decked balcony which is on the first floor at the back of the house, with views over the hotel lawn to the harbour. The other bedrooms are at the front of the house and have juliet balconies looking into the front gardens of the crescent. A ground floor room affords access to a large ground level deck giving you plenty of private outdoor space.

In addition to the delightful catering available on request , breakfasts and buffets tare available by ordering before your stay, we are happy for our chefs or caterers to chat diretctly with you to ensure they meet and exceed your requirements and expectations. Or self cater in the wonderful kitchen with Corian worksurfaces and Gaggenau appliances.
