Full description

Eaglehurst is a very special country house with the most extraordinary coastline views of The Solent. The house is tucked away in the south of Hampshire within The New Forest National Park and in a very tranquil and peaceful location. The house is approached via a long driveway through surrounding woodland. The gravel driveway swings to the left around the walled garden to reveal a picture of this very pretty house.

The house had been divided in to separate dwellings at one time; however it has been reunited as one private house over the past 20 years. The main entrance hall is to the north, facing the walled garden and another entrance is at the western end from the enclosed courtyard. The kitchen/breakfast room is perfect for family life and accesses a drawing room which gives on to the garden and sea. Three formal rooms in the original heart of the house each feature vaulted ceilings and decorative stucco work and wall reliefs and, again, French doors giving on to a very substantial terrace and the lawns down to the sea to the south. A study and cinema room form the lower half of the unusual western septagonal tower.

The master bedroom is on the upper floor of the western tower. The views are breath-taking from this room and it also has an en suite bathroom with windows and the same view over the garden and sea. There are six further bedrooms on the first floor of the western part of the house with 4 further bathrooms (2 en suite). The floors are impressive with long oak floorboards, some of which are the length of the rooms. The remaining bedrooms are in the central body of the house on the ground floor and in the eastern tower.

The one bedroom annexe to the eastern side of the house incorporates the other septagonal tower. This accommodation is configured so as to easily be integrated into the main house or used as separated accommodation as needs be. There is also a separate “granny or staff flat” to the western end. This provides excellent additional accommodation for staff and/or family. There is also a separate two bedroom cottage which is currently vacant and a further two bedroom cottage for restoration. This would work very well as a separate office or additional accommodation.

Eaglehurst sits on the edge of The New Forest and has commanding views over the Solent. The house occupies a peaceful part of Hampshire which is surrounded by beautiful woodland. The views from Eaglehurst are stunning and provide the most amazing backdrop for this very historical house.

The nearby villages of Calshot and Fawley provide local amenities, Lepe Country Park in particular is charming. Further afield is the popular and picturesque village of Beaulieu on the Beaulieu River (8 miles) along with Lyndhurst (15 miles), in the heart of The New Forest.

Road and rail links are excellent from Eaglehurst. Southampton Central (17 miles) provides regular services to London Waterloo (from 76 mins). Southampton and nearby Lymington also provide regular services to the Isle of Wight by foot and car. The M271 (12 miles) provides access to London and further afield.

The gardens at Eaglehurst are stunning and surrounded by mature trees which survived the 1987 hurricane. The house sits in the middle of approximately 9.9 acres surrounded by its own land. The listed walled garden features a tennis court and fig trees and has been restored by the current owner over the past 20 years and is a wonderful sun trap. The lawns are immaculate and are interspersed with beautiful yew hedged alleys and feature brick pathways, a rose circle and an orchard. The main lawns are to the south of the house down to the sea, perfect for family life and to enjoy the views of the Solent.
