Property description

Tenure: Freehold

Clobb Gorse was built in 1927 and between 1941 and 1942, within the Beaulieu Estate was one of 11 houses requisitioned for the training of secret agents of Britain's Special Operations Executive (SOE). They were often referred to as “finishing schools”. Today Clobb Gorse offers beautifully presented extensive accommodation over two stories, amounting to approximately 6,728 square foot. The majority of the rooms are all south facing overlooking the wonderful landscape gardens with pastureland beyond. The property certainly lends itself to either cosy family living or entertaining.

Beyond the five reception rooms is a generous kitchen/breakfast room with a boot room and utility room off. Beyond this area is a study and a ground floor guest bedroom with an adjoining bathroom.

Over the first floor all five double bedrooms enjoy south facing views and all have access to their own bathrooms or shower rooms. Above the guest bedroom, bathroom and study on the ground floor is a first floor flat/ annexe comprising of an open plan kitchen/ reception room, double bedroom and adjoining shower room. This annexe is self-contained and benefits from its own access to the eastern part of the property.

Within the immaculately presented gardens is a brick built pool house comprising of a reception room, kitchen, changing room with cloakroom and shower. To the west of the property, close to the entrance gate is the Coach House which comprises of a double garage, a ground floor reception/entrance hall with shower room off and stairs leading up to a large studio room with an open plan kitchen.

Also to the west of the property is a tennis court, whilst to the south is a large expanse of pasture with a pond and field shelter. The gardens and grounds are without a stunning feature and highly compliment this wonderful family home in this idyllic location, close to Bucklers Hard.

In the 18th century Bucklers Hard was an important ship building village and sits on the western bank of the Beaulieu River, a couple of miles south of Beaulieu village. Bucklers Hard has been in the private ownership of the Montagu family since it was founded in 1724.

There are many moorings along the river and the marina has 110 deep-water berths. Within Bucklers Hard there is a hotel, restaurant and bar. The nearby village of Beaulieu provides a range of facilities including a general store, post office, newsagent, cafés, garden centre, hotel and Michelinstarred restaurant.

Its sister 'restaurant with rooms', The Pig, is just 7.5 miles with the award winning Relais & Chateaux Chewton Glen within 16 miles.
