The historic village of Beaulieu has facilities which include the Montagu Arms, with an outstanding restaurant, a picturesque High Street with shops such as a good village store, garden centre, gallery, tea room, primary school and more. Beaulieu Road and Brockenhurst main line railway stations are a short drive away and there are excellent travel links to London and the airports by road and rail with direct services to Waterloo from Brockenhurst in approximately 95 minutes. Walhampton School is just over 5 miles away and the Georgian market town of Lymington lies approximately 7 miles to the west with its marinas and yacht clubs. There is also a popular marina at nearby Bucklers Hard.
The entrance hallway has ample coat storage and large glazed panels to one wall, a generous cloakroom and leads to the sitting room, being one of the three reception rooms in this versatile property. The room has a feature gas contemporary fireplace and large windows to the front aspect. The stylish open plan kitchen forms the hub of the house designed with clean lines, handle-less units with ample work space and having a beautiful central island. Integrated appliances include Miele induction hob and ovens and Siemens Fridge and dishwasher. There are ample storage cupboards and an adjacent utility room and laundry with all the necessary plumbing and storage. The kitchen is open to the beautiful dining area with a wall of glazed sliding doors which open this stunning space onto the gardens. Another living room, currently used as the “TV Snug” leads from the dining room with elegant glazed units overlooking the rear garden. Also to the ground floor is a double bedroom with large walk-in wet room style en-suite and fitted wardrobes. There is underfloor heating throughout the ground floor.
To the first floor there are three further generous double bedroom suites, all with fitted wardrobes and enjoying stylish bespoke shower rooms. One of the suites has a bath tub with shower over for those wishing to enjoy a relaxing soak. Features to the bedrooms include full height windows with Juliet balconies and fitted blinds to truly feel like one is in the canopy of the surrounding forest. Only the sounds of the rustling trees and birds can be heard.
For those wishing to work from home or to house a gym, there is a well designed studio/office which is glazed on two sides overlooking the garden and courtyard. This could be connected to the main house and could also accommodate a further bathroom, subject to planning.
The property is approached via an electric gate after passing along a private lane leading to a handful of exclusive homes, nestled in woodland. There is ample room for several vehicles and planning permission has been granted to erect a detached double garage adjacent to the main house.
A timber wall to the front creates a division and privacy to the studio and offers a wonderful sunny spot for alfresco dining. The rear garden is accessed via pathways to the side of the house and has been landscaped with stylish planting and a lawn with terrace to the rear of the house and accessed from the dining room sliding doors. The whole enjoys a high degree of privacy.
Living in Beaulieu
Beaulieu, as its name suggests, is beautiful. This village is a jewel of the New Forest, sitting prettily beside the River Beaulieu with Palace House, the seat of the Montagu family, as backdrop. This is an estate village which has been in the keeping of the Montagu family for 477 years. Today Beaulieu is familiar worldwide for the National Motor Museum, but the village attracts visitors, too. It has a quaint High Street of smart independents in pretty brick and timber-framed period properties, including art gallery, chocolate studio, floral designer, plus gift shops, tea room, village stores, garden centre, community garden and the village school (rated ‘good’ by Ofsted).
Beaulieu is also home to Beaulieu Garage (specialising in classic and vintage cars) and Terrace Restaurant at the Montagu Arms, the only restaurant in the New Forest to hold a Michelin Star. Along the road towards picturesque Hatchet Pond is Beaulieu Organic Farm Shop.
As for property, there are some good-sized period country houses, while Dock Lane, which runs alongside the river, is considered one of the most prestigious addresses in the Forest with a selection of stunning architect-designed modern builds.
