Perched on the high west bank, overlooking the River Avon's Water Meadows, two miles north of Ringwood in Hampshire - Somerley and its 7,000 acres, sits nestled between the New Forest and the Dorset border.
Somerley is a Georgian stately home with a whole host of incredibly unique features that you will struggle to find anywhere else. These include a 90-foot Picture Gallery, Extensive art collection, 2 Libraries, a gun room (with lots of taxidermy), an ice house built into the side of the bank, a walled garden and huge sash windows that can be hidden via antique mirrors that are hidden in the window frames.
The main house consists of a drawing room, dining room, kitchen, cellar, billiards room, 4 staircases, 10 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms. Within the vast property, you will find the location finished with stone and wooden flooring on the ground floor, while the upper two floors have been carpeted. Each of the 6 state rooms found on the ground floor have working fireplaces completed with very large and highly decorative marble surrounds, while all 9 bedrooms and 5 of the 7 bathrooms also come fitted with fireplaces as well. Smaller and less ornate than those found in the ground floor rooms, but they too have very attractive marble surrounds.
All of the 9 bedrooms include very high ceilings, georgian period features and have antique furniture. They also benefit from great views of the surrounding estate!
Within the 7 bathrooms you will find wallpapered walls, carpeted floors and a whole host of antique furniture. Most have roll top baths and marble surround fireplaces.
There is also extensive grounds that include large formal gardens, a trident water fountain, 180 acres of parkland, an outdoor swimming pool, tennis court and stables.
