Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Believed to have been built in the 1930s, this unique and very special property offers an extraordinary range of accommodation extending to over 6900 sq.ft. including outbuildings. There is huge versatility in how the accommodation can be utilised, having formerly had an architect’s practice operating from the property, it has previously been granted mixed residential and office use so would work well for someone running a business from home, or indeed someone looking to create a self contained annexe.

Unsurprisingly the majority of the accommodation faces south west to take advantage of the incredible sea views. On the ground floor there is an impressive wood panelled formal drawing room with fireplace. Adjacent is a bright morning room
of over 23 ft. with a walk in bay connecting to the conservatory and a feature fireplace. Continuing through the ground floor is an open plan library and a more informal sitting room again with views of The Solent and a range of built in shelving and glass display cabinets. The study features another fireplace and bay window whilst the kitchen breakfast room is comprehensively equipped with a range of painted units, centre island, space for
a breakfast table and a butler’s pantry. A generous cloakroom/w/c completes the ground floor in this part of the house.

Beyond the kitchen is a lobby area which provides access to a further ground floor w/c, the utility room, the garaging and the meeting room of what was the architect’s practice, a separate staircase
leads from the lobby to the three office areas on the first floor. On the first floor of the main house there is a 22 ft. master bedroom with fitted storage, balcony, dressing room and a large en suite bathroom with sea views. The remaining four bedrooms (one of which is currently used as an artist’s studio) all benefit from the wonderful outlook across the Solent and are served by the family bathroom, shower room and separate w/c on this level. A small corridor links to the a forementioned office areas situated above the garaging which could also be utilised as bedrooms if required but owing to the separate staircase can be made completed self contained from the main house.


The property is situated on the edge of Hill Head and Lee-On-Solent and is an extremely desirable location for those with an affinity for the sea. Hill Head boasts a public House, tea room, picturesque harbour, sailing club and is home to Titchfield
Haven Nature Reserve, thus ensuring its appeal to sailing enthusiasts and nature lovers alike. Lee- On –Solent offers more shops and cafés whilst additional day to day shopping facilities can be found nearby in the historic village of Titchfield (approx. 3 miles) and Stubbington (approx. 1 mile). For commuters the (A27/M27/M3) provides access for journeys further afield, whilst mainline railway links to London are available from either Fareham (4 miles) or Southampton Parkway station (14 miles) adjacent to which is Southampton International Airport offering
domestic and international flights.


The grounds are a super feature of the property, predominantly south west facing they have been landscaped to include a variety of planting providing interest and colour through the year. A rose garden sits to the west of the house and Leads in turn to a mix of shaped shrubs and palms which provide an attractive backdrop to the outdoor swimming pool. Immediately to the south of the house a large expanse of lawn is edged by
hedging and features a lovely seating area maximising on the outstanding sea views. A stepped footpath leads from this section of the garden, giving access to the beach. To the front of the property there is a further area, previously
used as a vegetable garden that could be easily reinstated and includes a greenhouse. The property boasts an excellent range of outbuildings of 247 sq.ft. which include three brick built stores and a pump room for the pool.
