Situated approximately twenty minutes drive from junction 9 of the M27 and twenty minutes drive to Parkway railway station with a direct route to Waterloo station in one hour and six minutes.
This superbly appointed property occupies a secluded rural plot approaching one and a half acres, backing directly on to The Saltings and River Hamble, providing a stunning picturesque moving landscape for those wishing to escape the hustle and bustle of city life.
Constructed in the late 1980’s to a very individual design and incredibly high specification, an enormous amount of thought and attention to detail has gone into creating the perfect waterside retreat.
Entering via electrically operated gates from a private lane, the property provides an instant air of elegance and charm from the moment one enters through the double front doors to the entrance vestibule and stunning central reception hall. With four large reception rooms, ground floor cloakroom, impressive utility room, boiler room and bespoke fitted kitchen/breakfast room, the ground floor provides an immediate feeling of space with airy 9’4″ ceiling heights throughout. The principal ground floor rooms all provide stunning views along the extensive well tended Westerly rear garden to the waterside beyond where there is an ever changing landscape of yachts and boating activities.
With eight bedrooms and four bathrooms in total, the accommodation is spread over three floors, with the first floor providing a superb galleried landing with large shaped picture window providing plenty of light to the centre of the home. With a master bedroom suite including bespoke fitted dressing room, bath/shower room and balcony/terrace enjoying the picturesque views, three further double bedrooms (one with additional en suite bath/shower room) and a generous family bathroom situated on the first floor, the second floor provides three further double bedrooms, central shaped landing and a further family bathroom.
The property has undergone extensive improvements throughout the ownership of the current owners who have maintained the residence to an impeccable standard including the replacement of the kitchen with bespoke units including granite work surfaces, fitted ‘Miele’ appliances, superbly appointed separate utility room, ‘Jetmaster’ open fire to the principal drawing room, bespoke fitted bedroom furniture, recently replaced boilers for the dual zoned central heating system and beautifully tended grounds.
Externally the grounds provide a secluded haven being predominantly lawn with an array of shaped mature beds provding distinctive areas. Immediately behind the property there is a generous terrace enjoying views over the rear garden towards the River Hamble with the main lawn providing the ideal setting for entertaining with plenty of space for a marquee. A covered shelter provides seclusion and protection over the hot tub with adjacent purpose built outbuilding providing the perfect garden room complete with kitchenette and w.c. The forecourt boasts ample onsite secure parking for several vehicles in front of the oversize detached triple garage with self contained one bedroom apartment over, creating ideal accommodation for an au pair of staffing quarter with further secluded lawn behind.
