Owlswood is part of a small collection of individual architect designed houses known as The Hummicks in Dock Lane. The present owners have lived there since 1995. The property is open plan with a huge conservatory, giving lovely views over the garden, which is usually busy with bird life.

The entrance hall has a door leading to the indoor pool, heated by a separate oil fired boiler. The sitting room and dining room are open plan but separated by a shared fireplace with hood. The kitchen with utility area overlook the dining room and this makes a pleasing family room. The hall leads to the bedrooms with a master bedroom, en suite, 3 further bedrooms (one currently used as an office) and a family bathroom. Separate cloakroom.

Owlswood is a contemporary style dwelling, built in the 70's and set in a beautiful woodland garden on Dock Lane, Beaulieu. The Beaulieu Estate owns most of the surrounding land and the property benefits from having direct access onto the Beaulieu River. There is a shared pontoon to launch a small boat at all states of the tide, river moorings are available for larger yachts and a marina nearby.

Owlswood is in a very special location and ideal for those wishing to sail, enjoy country pursuits and be close to nature with wonderful bird life on the river. However the village of Beaulieu is close by with a range of individual shops, garden centre, post office, hotel, farm shop and a chocolatier. There is a thriving primary school in Beaulieu with other state or private schools a short drive away. The Georgian market town of Lymington is about 9 miles away with a Waitrose, Tesco and many other boutique shops plus 2 more marinas. Brockenhurst station is about 7.5 miles away with fast trains to London Waterloo, taking about 90 minutes. Hythe is about 4 miles with 3 supermarkets, marina and foot ferry to Southampton.

The lovely woodland gardens of approximately half an acre surround the property, with additional use of the Hummick Residence communal land. In the garden there is a summer house with light, power and a suspended wooden floor currently used as a study/store room. There is also a tractor shed and a separate workshop. The large heated garage has an inspection pit and further workshop space. Outside there is a hard standing area with a power point, useful for boat or caravan storage.

A gravel drive leads to the front of the property with access to the pump room for the swimming pool. There is ample parking for several cars, whilst, about at 3 minute walk away, is access to the river and pontoon.
