A substantial country house situated in its own private valley.
Hemmick Court is one of the finest country houses to have been built in the New Forest within the last twenty five years. It stands in an elevated position and has wonderful views to the south over its beautiful gardens, grounds and lake, and across to the Forest and the valley. The house has very distinctive mellow red brick elevations, inset double glazed windows under a tiled and dormered roof with a central pillared entrance portico. Hemmick Court has been refurbished with the help of an eminent interior designer to create a country house of our time'. The quality of the fittings are exceptional, the accommodation flows perfectly and the main reception rooms radiate off a magnificent reception/dining hall. The majority have French doors opening out on to the terrace and into the gardens and also have long views over the grounds and adjoining countryside. Other features include panelled internal doors, moulded architraves, skirting boards, radiator grilles, wall light points, down lighters, ceiling speakers and underfloor heating on the ground floor.
Off the large landing are five bedroom suites. The Principal Suite is sumptuously appointed with a bedroom, balcony overlooking the grounds, and mirror fronted double doors conceal a large walk-in clothes closet. All of the bathrooms and shower rooms have quality fittings including Duravit.
The Coach House
The coach house is situated opposite the main house and built very much in keeping with brick elevations under a tiled and dormered roof surmounted by a clock tower. Three sets of opaque folding glass doors give access to garaging for 5-6 cars, motorbikes etc. There is a gardener's WC.
The cottage: Sitting room, fitted bespoke units, limestone floor, kitchen/dining room, fully fitted with units. First Floor: Three bedrooms, shower room and bathroom.
At first floor level there is also a gym which could be a home office, etc, and has a staircase leading down to the garaging. Off the bathroom is a sauna and a further staircase leads down to a solarium/steam room.
Gardens and Grounds
The grounds are a particular feature of Hemmick Court. The large terrace accessed from the main reception rooms offers a great to place to relax with elevated views over the grounds. There is also a Jacuzzi located on the terrace.
Beyond the terrace are the formal gardens with beautifully well maintained lawns. There is a parterre garden, stepped water garden and parallel to this is a long pergola planted with hydrangeas and roses.
Below the house is a good sized swimming pool, pump house, barbecue area and hard tennis court.
There is also a dog kennel and fenced vegetable patch.
The lake is well stocked with a central fountain, weeping willow and ornamental gazebo.
The driveway from the house continues though the gardens and leads down to the stabling and ménage.
The land lies primarily to the south and south west and is arranged as pasture and paddocks and is divided by areas of woodland. There are three further ponds and beyond here is the mature woodland known as Sticklands Plantation.
A right of way over the rear track exists in favour of the neighbours. A byway and path run through part of the property. Details with the agents.
