Property Summary

Situated in the heart of this most sought-after conservation village, tucked away in a private setting overlooking and adjacent to the Greyladyes Estate, a contemporary residence extending to circa 3000 square feet of exquisite accommodation with ample driveway parking and an impressive garage block with two studios.



Broad reach is truly stunning with both the exterior elevations and interior structure being quite striking. My clients purchased the property in 2007 and carried out extensive works; 5 years ago they refurbished the whole property once again both internally and externally to an exacting specification; the result is a delicious blend of contemporary styling with bespoke features. It is apparent as soon as you enter the property that this is no ordinary home; the vast split level reception area centres on a contemporary log burning stove; sliding doors lead to the garden and provide stunning views across the private parkland. Further bifold doors lead to a peaceful inner courtyard. A staircase leads up to an impressive mezzanine reception room with a glorious double height vaulted ceiling, currently utilised as a further sitting room and library with walnut shelving and a library ladder; this stunning area is triple aspect, flooded with light with large picture windows and a balcony overlooking Greyladyes Estate. The kitchen/breakfast room is situated in the heart of the property and benefits from an extensive range of cupboards and a comprehensive range of integral appliances; two openings lead through to a magnificent garden room with two sets of bifold doors leading to the garden- the view is simply breathtaking over the adjacent private parkland. There are four bedrooms, two of which are situated on the ground floor and two on the first floor, of which have vaulted ceilings and glorious views over the private parkland. Three of the bedrooms have ensuite facilities.



The property is approached via an unmade lane, beautifully tucked away in a secluded setting. The driveway provides parking for several cars and leads to an impressive garage block and studio; this was constructed in 2011 and consists of an oversized double garage measuring 26ft in width, currently with two roller shutters and an adjacent work shop. A staircase leads up to a useful room, ideal as an office or studio. There is a further room beneath this accessed independently from outside, which again offers numerous possibilities, it is currently utilised as a music studio so is fully sound proofed. The gardens are truly delightful, adjacent to and benefiting from spectacular views across private Parkland; mainly laid to lawn with steps up to a decked terrace with sunken hot tub, flanked by a stunning sandstone terrace providing delightful seating areas. A further summer house is situated to the far boundary with adjacent golf putting green.



Old Bursledon is a beautiful village on the west bank of the River Hamble and is a designated conservation area. This historical village retains close ties with the sea and the Elephant Boatyard, which still remains, and dates back centuries where Henry VII’s fleet was built.   By the 1870’s the shipbuilding trade had disappeared from the village and the main industry was the growing of strawberries.  The Strawberry Trail heritage walk still exists where walkers can enjoy the easy riverside, coastal and country park routes.  There is also a fashionable pub, The Jolly Sailor, on the banks of the Hamble which has its own public slipway where you can arrive by SUP and enjoy a relaxed vibe on the terrace overlooking the marina.  Bursledon railway line is a local line connecting with Southampton Parkway picking up fast trains reaching London Waterloo in 1 hour 10 minutes.  Equally the village is convenient for motorway links to the M27 and M3.
