Bought by the owners family over 40 years ago, Mallards is a rare offering to the market. It is a distinguished and handsome property dating back it is believed about 100 years, which has been extended in more recent years in what is arguably the best location on the river.The ground floor reception rooms have fabulous views over the formal lawned gardens to the south and east with tantalising glimpses of the river beyond. The double size drawing room extending to 43'6" is a central feature of the house and interconnects with a no less impressive dining room and library with all these rooms having bay windows over the garden. The bedroom accomodation is laid out over two floors with the principal master suite occupying the south and east elevations with a sitting room, dressing room and two ensuite bathrooms. There are 3 further bedrooms on the first floor and 2 large suites on the second floor with a central sitting room. From here spectacular views open up of the river.
Connected to the house via a tunnel and leading to the extensive cellars, is the Pavilion, an impressive building in its own right extending to 8,074 sq ft which comprises an entertainment room, squash court, 60' indoor pool hall, gym, sitting room and summer room overlooking the outdoor swimming pool and terrace.
Along the drive is a 2 bedroom coach house with extensive garaging and stores, and 3 bedroom cottage. The gardens lead down to a 150m hard jetty with a pontoon and harbour and a boat house.

The Beaulieu River is one of the world's few privately owned rivers and plays host to an exceptional range of flora and fauna. The rights were granted to the monks of Beaulieu Abbey by King John in 1204 before later passing to the Montagu family. Custodianship of the river by one family over four centuries has resulted in a largely unspoilt river in terms of its landscape.
The town of Lymington with its array of restaurants and shopping facilities is 7 miles away and Southampton is 12 miles bring its International Airport to within an average drive time of half an hour. The New Forest National Park is on the doorstep.
