Believed to date back to the 1800's and offered with no forward chain is this charming three bedroom house overlooking an exquisite lakeside setting, as part of the 140 acre Paultons Park estate, set within the New Forest National Park. Forming part of an enclave of converted stables and coaching houses, representing six individual dwellings, 5 Lakeside has been sensitively restored in 1991 to create a stunning home, incorporating traditional features and styling. Although beautifully quaint, it remains surprisingly practical with excellent ceiling height, generous storage space, two bathrooms and a cloakroom. The generous living space is supplemented by a large orangery style conservatory with cosy underfloor heating, which is a versatile all year round reception room. The property rests within a generous flat plot, mainly laid to lawn and backing onto the glorious walled gardens of the estate, with its vast array of Victorian greenhouses and nearby orchards. There is a large double garage, accessed to the rear of the property with ample visitor parking. As a Lakeside resident, you are permitted to enjoy the extensive grounds of the estate, which are truly remarkable and where you can witness the abundant thriving wildlife. Situated close to the nearby communication links of the A36 to Salisbury, A3090 to Romsey and M27 to Southampton and London.


The covered porch features two steps up to the wooden panelled front door. Upon entering the property, you are immediately impressed by the generous dimensions. The hall is welcoming and spacious and provides access to the lounge, dining room, kitchen and cloakroom. The sitting room has a fireplace and enjoys abundant natural light and provides access to the orangery style conservatory with underfloor heating. The kitchen features a matching range of units with complementary worktops featuring an inset four ring gas hob and an integrated double electric oven, space for further appliances and a door to the rear garden. A separate dining room with access to the under-stairs cupboard completes the ground floor accommodation. The landing hosts a loft access hatch with a pull down ladder, three double bedrooms with the master featuring an ensuite bathroom and fitted bedroom furniture, including wardrobes dressing table and bedside tables. Bedrooms two and three are served by the family bathroom with an airing cupboard.


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 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 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. Although picturesque, Lakeside is conveniently positioned for access to the M27 motorway network. Situated on the fringes of the New Forest National Park, within the popular village of Ower, there are two public houses and a shop within easy walking distance. Ower is approximately 5 miles from the local market town of Romsey. The neighbouring village of Wellow is well served, with traditional village amenities, including a post office, convenience store, a choice of butchers, pharmacy and a public house. Excellent local schooling for children of all ages is available and the extensive recreational facilities of the beautiful New Forest are just yards away.
