Originally built as a family home in the late 1950's for Belinda Lady Montagu, the intriguingly named Kings Rew is a spectacular property that has over the intervening years been enlarged to provide for a superb self-contained sizable ground floor annexe. The property has been continually updated and enhanced.
Set in park-like grounds that extends to an area of a little under 3 and a half acres (Promap) the property offers great privacy and seclusion with an unsurpassed southerly aspect with the majority of the extensive accommodation affording far reaching views. Set just inland from the famed Lepe Country Park and its associated coastline fronting The Solent with the backdrop of the Isle of Wight.
The principal house set out of 3 extensive floors provides for a total of 6 bedrooms served by 2 bathrooms (1 en suite) with 3 garden-side reception rooms opening off a generous galleried reception hall. A rear side hall serves a separate utility room.
Linked to the house is a fine array of equestrian orientated outbuildings providing stabling, tack/feed rooms and open barns set around a gated courtyard.
Set in mature park-like tree'd grounds the formal gardens comprise swathes of lawn offset by ornamental borders, the whole affording a sense of privacy and seclusion incorporating a series of 3 well fenced fields in support of the equestrian element, with one field affording gated access onto the bridleway for access into the New Forest.
In all, a fine family home in a tranquil, convenient near coastal location.
