Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A truly magnificent and substantial property that occupies a sizeable plot in a premier location, with delightful gardens backing onto the castle grounds, and with direct private access across the grounds to the beach and sea front.

The house is offered for sale in first class decorative order throughout and benefits from good sized rooms which are arranged over two floors in a very flexible manner, which could accommodate a large extended family or even multiple occupants.

In recent years the owners have extended and updated the property into a very fine and comfortable home with over 3000sqft of living space, and a number of other improvements including independent timed heating control of both floors and air conditioning in the five major bedrooms and conservatory. The property is accessed via in/out entrances leading to generous parking space, the front porch and the remote-operated garage

The front porch leads into the entrance hallway which affords access to the principal living rooms and a staircase to the first floor. To the rear is a large lounge with a handsome fireplace and French door leading into the magnificent rear conservatory, the lounge also opens through to the separate dining room. To the front is the well fitted kitchen with work surface in part to three walls.

The side hall leads to a utility room, cloakroom and a hobby room. This area of the property could lend itself to a self contained consulting suite with its own separate access. To the other side of the property is a good sized study and a double bedroom with en suite bathroom, this part of the house could be used as self contained accommodation for perhaps an elderly relative or teenager that needs a bit of privacy.

On the first floor there are a further four double bedrooms, two of which are en suite; there is also a large family bathroom with separate shower, all of which are fitted to a very high standard.

The gardens and grounds to the property are a joy to behold; the very impressive front to the property incorporates the driveway, lawn and a large concrete base suitable for a garage, boat or large shed. To the side is a very productive vegetable plot arranged as raised beds. The rear garden has a delightful southerly facing aspect and benefits from very pleasant views of the gothic style grade I listed Highcliffe Castle.

There is also a large lawn, which is beautifully enclosed by mature shrubbery and well stocked herbaceous beds, immediately to the rear of the house is an almost full width paved patio. With water features in both front and rear gardens, the grounds include a heated Robinson greenhouse with integral running water accessed from the rear garage door through a mediterranean pergola, as well as 3 other conveniently located watering faucets around the house; and there is a large garden shed for storage, nicely hidden in the glade separating the back gardens from the rear boundary fence.

To the foot of the garden is a private gate giving access to the castle grounds, which can also be used outside the castle opening hours, from the castle grounds there are pathways down to the beach.
