In a position that is little known, Baileys Hard is a small selection of well positioned, discreet homes on the renowned Beaulieu Estate, situated at the end of a long single track road. The village centre is within two miles whilst a nearby footpath takes you to Buckler's Hard, a pretty 18th century village with a marina, pub and country hotel, and the place where ships for Nelson's navy were built. The Georgian town of Lymington is just eight miles away and offers an excellent variety of boutique style shops, restaurants, and two marinas, along with a regular car ferry to the Isle of Wight. The M27 and M3 provide good road links to Southampton (17 miles) and Winchester (27 miles), whilst Southampton Airport Parkway (20 miles) provides a connection to London Waterloo in 70 minutes.
Situated in what has to be one of the most attractive and natural settings that you will ever find is this former yachtsman's cabin overlooking a pretty stretch of the Beaulieu River. This particular property has been skilfully updated throughout to an exceptionally high standard, now providing a superb living experience in an unspoilt natural environment that will delight those who seek a sanctuary from a typical everyday hectic lifestyle.
The accommodation takes full advantage of the location, every room enjoying a lovely aspect. An entrance porch with store cupboards gives access to the entrance door and reception hall. On the ground floor there is a good sized master bedroom with luxury bathroom en-suite. This bedroom has a double aspect with two sets of doors opening out onto a decked terrace. A second bedroom is also on the ground floor together with a useful walk in storage area.
A feature white spiral staircase with a complementary semi-circular window leads up to the open plan sitting room with an open fireplace that brings to life this exceptional living space. From here, two sets of double-glazed doors provide access to the expansive balcony, which is ideal for al-fresco dining or just relaxing and gazing at the ever changing scenery. A beautifully appointed kitchen with integrated appliances adjoins the living room, and also on the first floor is a separate luxury shower room.
The property is surrounded by a natural garden that blends with its lightly wooded setting, and there is parking for several cars to the front and side of the house.
The village of Beaulieu is easily found from Southampton via the A35, the A326, and the B3054. Alternatively, from the M3 follow the signs for the M27 West and leave at Junction 2, proceeding south along the A326 following the signs to Beaulieu.
