This stunning waterside property is an ethereal retreat in the New Forest
Spearbed Copse, overlooking the Beaulieu River, is an exceptional country house in one of the finest riverside settings in the New Forest.
Enjoying outstanding water views and set in a haven of unspoilt ground extending to
11.5 acres, the property has been in the current family for 50 years.
Built in the 1930s in the
Tudor style and finished with an exceptional eye for detail using high quality materials, the large well-proportioned rooms offer sweeping southerly views across the landscaped gardens to the river and open countryside beyond.
The principal rooms have panelled walls and large, leaded light windows overlooking the garden, with both the drawing room and the sitting room having French windows onto the terrace. Opening from the kitchen/breakfast room is a covered courtyard with a mature vine, making it an ideal area for outdoor dining.
There is a generous reception hall, sitting room, dining room and study on the ground floor along with a large kitchen and breakfast room with an adjoining utility room.
There is also a downstairs double bedroom with adjoining bathroom in addition to a wc and a range of store rooms.
On the first floor there are five generous bedrooms accessed off a central landing, two of which have en-suite bathrooms. The principal three bedrooms all have stunning views across the gardens to the Beaulieu River beyond. There is also a family bathroom and separate wc. From the landing, stairs lead to the second floor where there are three attic/store rooms.
Externally, there is also a heated swimming pool, large boat house and slipway and a deep water jetty offering superb access to sailing on the Solent.
