  • Bedrooms: 7
This stunning family residence has recently been subject to a complete extension and re-modelling programme, providing an impressive five bedroom detached house with a well-appointed, two bedroom detached annexe. Each of the rooms have been refurbished to an exceptional standard, providing high quality fittings throughout as well as tremendous space and flexibility. Outside, the generous plot boasts over half an acre of gardens (with planning consent for large, heated swimming pool), a generous gated driveway, a quadruple carport and a one acre paddock. There is also a further eight and a half acres (approx.) of additional paddocks and grazing land immediately adjacent to the property which is available with separate negotiation. We strongly advise viewing to fully appreciate the scale and presentation on offer within this wonderful home.

LOCATION The property is positioned on a private, wooded lane of just a select few, individual detached properties. Locks House, in particular, boasts an enviable position at the end of the track overlooking Southampton Water across fields and woodland while offering a pleasing, secluded setting. There are various amenities locally in nearby villages which include schools for children of all age groups. Hythe village itself provides an array of shops, bars and restaurants and also has transport links to other surrounding areas, including a passenger ferry service to Town Quay, Southampton. Proximity to the coast means there are a wide range of indoor and outdoor activities to be enjoyed including a recreational centre at Applemore as well as a golf course in Dibden itself. The A326 is close by and allows easy access to the M27 which feeds the M3 and leads directly to London.

ENTRANCE The property is approached via a private track where solid timber, electric gates with rendered pillars open onto an extensive, shingle driveway. The driveway is bordered by an established hedge and decorative flower beds including a well-stocked rose garden. A quadruple, solid oak carport, with power and light connected, provides ample covered parking and the potential for overhead storage. A slate tiled pathway leads to the front door and to the detached annexe.

RECEPTION HALL An oak-framed storm porch with slate tiled roof and security lighting covers the composite front door.
