Description:

Fine & Country are proud to bring to market this one of a kind, piece of architectural Beaulieu heritage. This 1970s four-bedroom, private house has bags of character and an indoor swimming pool, set within a half-acre of Beaulieu Riverside forest land.

This property sits within Dock Lane, a prestigious private road famed for its unrivalled waterside property, and offers an idyllic forest setting for impressive family homes. Just on the edge of the renowned Beaulieu village, it is a short stroll to the shops, restaurants and nature walks along the river.

The property was designed by Sir Basil Spence, famous for such works as Coventry Cathedral and The Beehive wing of the New Zealand parliament – but was also well known for the residences he designed in the 1970s style, of which this is a prime example.

The property boasts a generous stone gravel driveway, with double garage fit for three vehicles. There are four generously sized double bedrooms, three of which enjoying a southerly aspect and built-in wardrobes, with a large en-suite off the master bedroom. The fourth bedroom is currently modelled as a study, with walls adorned with memorabilia of the current owner’s motor-racing career.

There is a main bathroom with additional separate W.C.

The large kitchen connects beautifully to a dining area that enjoys views of the rear garden, as well as the main living room and garden room that adds a great deal of living space to the principle reception rooms, as well as opening up the house to a great source of natural light.

The living room features an iconic central feature fireplace of exposed brick and marble, and benefits both the living room and the dining room on the other side.

The property has privileged access to a resident’s jetty that provides direct berthing access to Beaulieu River itself. This house would make a perfect base for someone who enjoys sailing or motorboating, as berthing here is a great deal more competitive than the local facilities, and the location is unrivalled in the Beaulieu area.

The house is appropriate for some degree of renovation, and there is potential to add value by doing so.
