An impressive Victorian family home extending to 6,984 sq ft and offering fabulous reception space with traditional high ceilings, a fine house for family living and entertaining


Ortus House is situated in Pikes Hill which is renowned as one of Lyndhurst's most prestigious addresses and is located in the very heart of New Forest National Park just yards from the open forest. The surrounding area is characterised by a collection
of charming villages and outstanding countryside. The New Forest National Park extends to approximately 193,000 acres of beautiful woodland, heathland and unenclosed pasture. It is a famous haven for walking, riding and cycling. There is also an abundance of watersports as The Forest borders The Solent from Lymington to Fawley, encompassing an inland stretch of the Beaulieu River. The major centres of Southampton, Salisbury, Bournemouth and Poole are all easily accessible via the M27, A31 and A36. Southampton Airport provides connections to several UK and European airports. Ferries run from Southampton, Poole and Portsmouth providing access to the Channel Islands and France.


Ortus House is a substantial family home which has undergone significant refurbishment under the current owners. The resulting accommodation includes a magnificent reception hall with central fireplace and turning staircase up to a magnificent galleried landing. Off the reception hall there is access to all principal reception rooms including a fine drawing room with central fireplace, high ceilings and doors out onto the rear terraces. The dining room is also a well proportioned
room, ideal for entertaining with some attractive period features. The open plan kitchen/breakfast room/snug is a fabulous living space. The exquisitely styled Silverbrow kitchen features a large central island unit with a range of bespoke cabinets under granite work surfaces. A further comprehensive range of bespoke floor and wall mounted units comprising cupboard and drawer sections provides further storage space. There is a comprehensive range of fitted De Dietrich appliances
including a 6-ring gas hob with separate fish grill, 2 self-cleaning ovens, steamer oven and combination microwave oven, plus a refrigerator/freezer, 2 additional drinks refrigerators and 2 Fisher & Paykel drawer style dishwashers. The breakfast area is positioned under an attractive roof lantern and provides a light
and bright space for dining, the attractive snug at the far end with its log burning stove makes this open plan room ideal for family living. At first floor level there are principally 4 bedrooms including a master bedroom suite with dressing area and en suite bathroom, the 3 further bedrooms all have en suite shower rooms. On the 2nd floor there could be as many as 4 further bedrooms; however, the property is currently configured with a games room in bedroom 5 and an office in bedroom 7 so there is flexibility depending on the individual needs. A shower room services these bedrooms on the top floor. Ortus House is truly a house for entertaining and relaxing, and the indoor swimming
pool makes this possible all year round. From this swimming pool area doors open out onto an attractively laid rear terrace where there is access to the outdoor pool and formal gardens.

The property is approached via wrought iron gates opening out onto a large gravel driveway which leads up to the garaging and provides ample space for parking numerous vehicles. The gardens at the front are neatly arranged with attractive
lawned areas edged with some box planting and some attractive shrub borders. The formal gardens lie to the rear of the property and include a fabulous rear terrace with heated infinity edge swimming pool. This secluded garden provides a fabulous
environment for family living and entertaining. Steps from the expansive paved terrace rise up to the lawned areas, which are beautifully landscaped with lawns enclosed by mature trees, hedging and established planting. The entire plot measures
in excess of 0.5 acres.
