This is a rare opportunity to acquire a spacious penthouse apartment located in the highly sought after village of Studland. Perfectly placed, The Mount is a small block of apartments conveniently situated approximately 500 metres to the beach and has pedestrian access at the rear to open country. The finest feature of this superior apartment has to be the unrivalled views over the village to Old Harry and the Hampshire coastline, which are enjoyed from all principal rooms.
The Mount is reputed to have been used during the Second World War as miliary accomodation for Winston Churchill and General Eisenhower when rehearsing for the D Day Landings in Studland Bay.
The village of Studland lies at the South-Eastern tip of the Isle of Purbeck, approximately 9 miles from Poole, Bournemouth and Wareham all of which have main line rail link to London Waterloo (approx 2 hours). Much of the surrounding area is owned by the National Trust and is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty including the gateway to the Jurassic Coast and World Heritage Coastline.
