Probably needs some updating, but the location of this 1970s modernist property in Beaulieu, Hampshire will probably overshadow any work that needs doing.
The house, as you can see from one of the lower images here, has an amazing position in a wooded setting, not far from the Beaulieu River, which you can access via a shared jetty. It was a custom build back in the 1970s for the current owners, with the house (as you might have guessed), up for sale for the first time.
According to the agent, the house has a ‘continued feeling of light and space’, with large windows bringing the outside in, while a large balcony brings it even closer.
As for space, the main living accommodation is on the first floor. A mezzanine hallway leads to the sitting room which in turn opens to the dining room. Both rooms have direct access to that large balcony. You’ll also find a kitchen on this level. Elsewhere, there is a master bedroom with en-suite, three double bedrooms and a family bathroom. On the ground, you’ll find a large garage which extends to a workshop area, a further room and large utility. Plenty of garden outside too.
Some of the original features here are a selling point for us, but it looks like some updating and perhaps some tweaking of the design might be necessary to get the best out of this place. Despite that, it’s still not a cheap proposition at £975,000.
