A magnificent residence of grand proportions, privately positioned overlooking Southampton Water and beyond.
Locks House is one of those properties that simply has to be seen to be fully appreciated. The property is essentially remarkable, having been freshly re-modelled and extended on a grand scale. The main residence, which is completely detached from the two bedroom annexe, offers a sumptuous reception hall with its central staircase creating a warm welcome home. Two enormous reception rooms compliment the kitchen/dining room that is perfect for huge parties and entertaining. Two sets of folding doors open onto the expansive patio that extends to glorious lawns. A large office room and utility room complete the ground floor. Upstairs the gallery landing gives access to five double bedrooms and the family bathroom. The Master bedroom has its own access to the family bathroom, whilst bedroom two acts as a wonderful guest room with its en-suite and built in wardrobes.
Dibden is situated on the fringes of The New Forest with quick and easy access to the very popular holiday town of Lymington. With only a short, speedy distance to the M27 which links to the M3 for London, commuting to the Capital is very much viable. Bramshot Hill Golf Club and Hythe Marina are very close by, with Exbury Gardens, Beaulieu Motor Museum, Calshot Activity Centre and Lepe Country Park all within a short distance too.
Approached via a private track, and secured by electric wrought iron gates, a vast shingle driveway is bordered by established hedges and flower beds. A four-bay solid oak carport provides covered parking. A slate tiled pathway leads to the front door and the detached annexe. To the rear, a large slate patio adjoins the rear of the house with a low set rendered wall encircling. Beyond are manicured grounds that are mainly laid to lawn with established neat hedges defining the boundary. A five-bar gate gives access to a separate paddock in excess of one acre. A detached garden room also offers a multitude of uses.
