About this property

  • Lea House is an attractive Georgian style house set in one of the most enviable positions on the Hampshire coast line enjoying magnificent views of the ever-changing Solent, its own gardens and grounds and across to the Isle of Wight.

    Boasting elegant floor to ceiling sash windows and well-proportioned dual aspect rooms, the house is fabulously light even on a dull day. The house is in an immaculate condition with high quality decorations and integrated sound system while maintaining a period charm with fine cornicing, traditional styled radiators and molded roses on some of the windows.

    There are two wrought iron electric gate entrances with separate gravelled drives that meander through the colourful gardens to the front door where there is ample parking, garaging and a smart turning circle with a sculptured box tree. The main drive is flanked by hornbeam ball trees and has a discrete turning allowing access to the multiple elements and buildings within the grounds.

    A pillared porch leads to a spacious hallway with cloakroom where all the reception rooms flow from, providing an ideal layout for entertaining and comfortable family living. These rooms include the drawing room, sitting room, family room, study, and family kitchen with adjoining conservatory and utility room.

    With so many wonderful reception rooms the family kitchen is one of the highlights being large in scale and opens onto a sensational conservatory which capitalises on the view and provides direct access to the terrace and gardens. Adjacent to the terrace is a large elevated oak sundeck, perfect for entertaining with outstanding views of the grounds and Solent.

    A graceful oak staircase spirals to the first and second floor (leading to the skylight – you can see up to the roof from the ground floor) where there are dual aspect bedrooms and contemporary bathrooms benefiting from either the Solent views or the beautiful grounds.

    On the first floor there are three bedrooms, with the principal bedroom suite having a sizeable en-suite bathroom and a dressing room (comprising of fitted wardrobes and dressing table). The second bedroom enjoys an en-suite bathroom and the third bedroom is serviced by a family bathroom.

    On the second floor there is one en-suite bedroom, two further bedrooms sharing a large shower room and a wide landing with access onto a south facing balcony, offering stunning views of the Lymington River and Isle of Wight. Clear views of Yarmouth and The Needles can be enjoyed from the balcony. There is an annex adjoining the first floor which has an en-suite bedroom/bathroom as well as a living/kitchen area with balcony and separate access.
