Priory Quay is an outstanding development of 37 houses built around a central yacht basin with direct access to the River Stour leading to Christchurch Harbour. These superb properties have been beautifully designed to give the best of modern architecture and to complement the surrounding historic building in the Town Centre Conservation Area, resulting in a European Design Award.
No 39 is truly in a prime location on the development being 1 of only 8 properties directly fronting the River Stour with far reaching river and harbour views to the Isle of Wight. The accommodation is arranged over 3 levels and has a terrace courtyard area at ground floor fronting the river together with 4 additional sun decks including a crows' nest roof garden on the top level. These properties are rarely available and viewing is recommended to avoid disappointment.
