About this property

  • Constructed in 2002 by Michael Howard Homes, the property is the largest design on the development and enjoys what is probably the largest garden. Its design has been influenced by 18th century Georgian style and architecture, with fine symmetrical elevations including a classical portico. The accommodation is very spacious with well proportioned rooms and high ceilings rising up to 12 feet.

    A fine reception hall includes a feature staircase rising two floors and is overlooked by galleried landings. The principal reception room extends some 30 ft with direct access via double doors onto the rear garden. On the opposite side of the house a dining room to the front would easily substitute as a family room and lies adjacent to the magnificent Mark Wilkinson kitchen, utility room and pantry. The kitchen is comprehensively fitted and includes a full AGA oven. The kitchen units are topped with honed Carrara marble and include a butler-style sink and peninsular breakfast bar. The room is open plan to an orangery which enjoys light-filled accommodation exemplified by deep windows which frame lovely views of the garden.

    On the first floor there are four large bedrooms and three bathrooms. The principal bedroom suite extends the full depth of the house and includes a dressing area and large en suite bathroom. On the second floor there is a two-bedroom suite which, with minimal alteration, may suit as a self-contained teenager's flat with each of the two rooms having access to an en suite facility.

    There are two sets of electronic gates to driveways either side of the house – a drive to the left leads into a courtyard and to the detached double garage. At the rear the gardens, which are believed to be the largest on the Beaulieu Park development, commence with a large terrace, ideal for al fresco dining, which merges into a vast expanse of lawn with mature evergreen and deciduous borders.

    In all about a third of an acre.
