Welcome To Grove Mews! STUNNING PROPERTY NOW PRICED TO SELL! This is a truly unique opportunity, to purchase one of the best presented homes in Eling, synonymous with historical architecture.

Fully restored in every sense of the word, from the loft style living room, to the bespoke and hidden drinks bar to the rear. This property has to be viewed to be appreciated.

Eling is a picturesque village situated on the outskirts of Southampton which is set in a conservation area. Steeped in history and surrounded by natural beauty, Eling offers a charming blend of quaint village life and modern amenities.

One of the village's most notable features is Eling Tide Mill, a working mill dating back to the 18th century. This historic landmark stands proudly along the tranquil Eling Creek and offers visitors a fascinating glimpse into the area's industrial past. The mill is still operational, grinding flour using the power of the tide, and serves as a living testament to Eling's heritage.

Eling Quay is another highlight of the village, providing a scenic spot to enjoy leisurely walks along the waterfront. From here, visitors can take in panoramic views of the surrounding marshes and observe the ebb and flow of the tide. The quay is also a popular spot for birdwatching, with numerous species of wading birds and waterfowl frequenting the area. Despite its tranquil setting, Eling is conveniently located close to the amenities of Southampton. The bustling city center is just a short drive away, offering an array of shopping, dining, and entertainment options.

There are also two fantastic pubs located just a short walk away, a nature trail stretches along the River Test, all the way down to Marchwood Yacht Club, there is also a slipway at Eling Quay for boating enthusiasts. As a whole, Eling is really well positioned between the New Forest and Southampton and major motorway links are nearby. 

When you attend a viewing at Grove Mews, please make sure you have the mobile number of the estate agent, you are bound to miss the secluded driveway amongst the trees. When you get there you will know, the elevated position of the house holds a commanding position on the hill, overlooking the Quay. The driveway leads to the house, with ample off road parking to the front, the open garden provides a serene setting on arrival. Directly infront of you is the garage which is a length and a half, providing ample storage for the home. Steps lead up to the front door, edged by a small and tranquil herb garden with raised beds, the balcony for the patio is here and you instantly feel in love with the lifestyle this stunning home promotes. 

The entrance hall is a warm and inviting space, with a bespoke ceiling light fitting, with similar seen in high end boutique hotels. The hallway offers a storage cupboard for coats, a downstairs W/C and small nook style windows through to the fantastic living room, more about that later. 

To the left hand side of the hallway is a dining area, a window to the rear provides views over the church, to sit and enjoy whilst you eat. This well- proportioned space is open to the kitchen, coupled with the views, families will enjoy this sociable space. The utility room is set to the rear and has been refitted with base level units, providing some essential storage. The necessary plumbing is here, completing the utility space with a door to the rear, the size of this room means there is ample space for this to be a home office as well as a utility. The kitchen is set with a range of hand crafted Laura Ashley wooden units. The feature island with Granite worktop is home to the Butler style sink, in front of you stands a wall of glass with views over woodland and the river. This must be one of the only homes where washing up can be enjoyed.This fantastic island also couples as a breakfast bar, a beautiful setting for a morning bite. The kitchen offers ample space for an American style fridge freezer and the integrated appliances consist of an essential wine fridge, Hotpoint eye level oven and Rangemaster oven with five ring hob and under counter dishwasher(the integrated appliances may not be included in the sale). The kitchen is a really bright and inviting space due to the window to the side aspect and the doors opening up to the balcony which is set with glass, offering uninterrupted views. 

The lounge is next level, with black framed double glazed windows to the side elevation, this room is split level and drops down to a fantastic seating area, nestled infront of the fireplace. There is another wall of glass here and the glazing here makes you feel like you are sat in a New York loft. This room is truly fantastic and only gets better with doors that open up to a beautiful balcony, an oversized space which is ideal for entertaining. 

The first floor accommodation makes you feel like you are travelling back in time and the tasteful decoration includes, exposed brick walls and views over the church to the rear. All of the bedrooms are double rooms, this is really rare for the price range. The master bedroom is a toss up between en- suite or views, a healthy topic of discussion for the next owners. The back bedroom has views over woodland and the river and is home to an en- suite shower room, where as bedroom two is set to the front and has dual aspect windows overlooking the Quay and woodland to the side. Both of these rooms make for a fantastic master bedroom. The other two bedrooms are really well proportioned and have their own touch of charm, one with church views, the other with woodland views. The upstairs is serviced by a refitted family bathroom, which has a fantastic bath for relaxing in this tranquil setting. 

Externally the house sits on a plot which is 1/3 of an acre, but it feels bigger due to the clever design of the sellers. From the utility there is a pathway along the rear of the house, there is also access to a secret, hidden room, a lockdown project which has now turned into a fantastic bar, set with power and lighting, this room makes the house. 

The pathway leads down the rear of the kitchen and then opens up into a raised decked area which edges some beautiful steps that lead up to the kitchen balcony. This area is a sun trap and is set within close proximity to the kitchen, but more importantly, the bar. Steps lead down to another tier of the garden, this is set with artificial grass and is home to a wooden structure, making the LazySpa a permanent addition, the views on a Summers evening from this point in the garden must be some of the best in the plot. Steps again lead down to another area which is ideal for dining and this is edged by the rest of the garden which is predominantly laid to lawn. The amount of grass here and the design, makes you feel like you are looking up at a country home when you are at the bottom of the garden. Other benefits include a beautiful summer house which has power and lighting, a convenient space which could be used as a home office, set with river views. There is also an external storage shed for practicality.
