Situated in the village of Ower, within the New Forest National Park in a lakeside setting, this property forms part of a conversion of outbuildings and stabling belonging to a former country residence dating back to the 1800s. Set in beautiful mature gardens and adjoining walled paddocks and an impressive pillared entrance yet only a short drive from the market town of Romsey giving a full range of shops and amenities close at hand. The property is also a short drive from the M27 motorway, from Southampton, Southampton airport and the docks.

Converted in 1991 into six dwellings, this highly desirable home, is set within the Paulton's Park Estate. Number 5 has a generously proportioned sitting room with a feature fireplace with a double aspect window/patio doors giving both views of the lake and mature trees and the rear garden respectively. This leads to a large conservatory leading to the large back garden approx 125 ft in length laid mainly to lawn. The property has a fully fitted kitchen with ceramic tiles and attractive wooden units and a door to the rear garden. The hallway leads to a downstairs cloakroom and a dining room/study. Upstairs there is a generous master bedroom with a well appointed en suite bathroom, a family bathroom and two further double bedrooms. To the rear of the property, accessed through an impressive coaching arch, is allocated parking and a double garage.

The approach to the enclave is most impressive, along a tree lined private drive with visitor parking to the fore of the historical brick pillared entrance. A driveway between the properties leads through an archway to the private parking and double garage, which offers power, boarded loft space and a personal access door to the rear garden. The front lawns are dissected by a path to the front door and overlook the banks of the lake with kingfishers, ducks, moorhens, swans, and Canadian geese in residence. The rear garden is approximately 125 feet in length, level and laid to lawn with a large wooden storage shed and summer house in situ. From here, the outlook is impressive over the estate owned walled paddocks and beyond to the orchards.


Lakeside is an enclave of six properties, fronting onto an attractive lake and within the grounds of Paultons Park with its 140 acres of grounds, situated within the New Forest National Park, providing an idyllic setting.
