Full Details

The Priory: Built in 1905 this early Edwardian property was originally used as the summer residence, for a wealthy merchant.

In 1933 it became The Priory School, Hayling Island, and was used as an annexed boarding junior school for Lynton House School, Portsmouth (est.1890). Being in a comparatively sheltered position about 150 yards from the beach, the school became a happy haven for the children.

Today the Priory is very much a family home, sympathetically modernised, but still true to its Edwardian heritage.

The Priory is perfect for those who like to entertain. The large reception rooms and spacious downstairs areas creating a light airy ambience, further enhanced with generous access to both the north and south gardens through the Orangery with its vaulted sky lantern, or via the Drawing room with its unique “Shipwrights” ceiling.

A big bonus is the virtually self-contained Annex, ideally suited for an elderly relative or even as a B&B opportunity.

For those who enjoy an outdoor life, the beach is just at the end of the road being visible from the house, and the world famous” Seacourt Tennis Club” with its “Real Tennis” court is just a minutes’ walk away.

For the maritime fraternity, the Priory offers ample space on the front entrance driveway for storing Ribs or even trailer yachts, and is 2.6 miles, 8 x minute drive away from Hayling Island Sailing Club (HISC).

Golfers will find the Priory is 1.3 miles (4 x minute drive) from the challenging Links course at Hayling Island Golf club.

After twenty-three years of family life at the Priory, the current owners (recently retired) have decided to downsize and intend to remain on the island. They hope the new owners will enjoy the character and way of life the Priory has to offer.
