Shelley Mead comprises a substantial detached home with double garage and separate kennel block, standing in gardens and grounds of around 3.6 acres which include exercise areas and paddocks. The current owners have gone to great lengths in creating a spacious family home with potential for further enlargement on the first floor if required which, combined with exceptional kennel facilities, represent an exciting opportunity for anyone with a similar passion for animals and their welfare. Subject to any necessary consents, the potential exists to create a kennels or cattery business but may also be suitable for anyone with equestrian interests, and the property is well situated just inside the New Forest National Park and close to excellent transport links.


Shelley Mead extends to around 2,659 square feet on the ground floor with additional rooms on the first floor, some of which are unfinished, but with the potential to enlarge further to around 3,500/4,000 square feet incorporating an annexe, home office or similar (subject to any necessary consents).

The main entrance opens into a welcoming hall in the centre of the property which is sensibly arranged separating the living areas from the bedrooms. From the hall double doors into a large sitting room which features a brick fireplace with inset wood burner and sliding doors opening into a large conservatory. The sitting room also provides access to the dining room with patio doors to the garden and an adjoining study ideal for homeworking. The dining room adjoins the kitchen/breakfast room, which can also be accessed separately from the entrance hall, and which is fitted with a range of oak fronted units, built-in oven and hob, and flagstone floor. A useful utility room adjoins the kitchen and the breakfast area has sliding doors opening onto a pleasant patio.

The large master bedroom has a range of built-in wardrobes with mirror fronted sliding doors and a spacious en-suite bathroom with a modern white suite. There are three additional double bedrooms all with built-in storage and these are served by a spacious modern shower room.

On the first floor is a large games room adjoining which are a shower room, WC and sauna (presently unused), and access to a large unfinished room from which access is possible to the loft space above the garage. The first floor has tremendous potential to create further en-suite bedrooms if required or alternative uses depending on individual circumstances (may be subject to planning).

Outside, the property is approached via a long driveway that sweeps round to an expansive parking area in front of the main house leading to the attached double garage with twin up-and-over doors, power and light, and stairs to the loft space above. There are formal gardens adjoining the property to the side and rear which are mainly laid to lawn with a variety of flowers and shrubs and the property is well screened by mature trees and hedging. The kennel block is of an exceptional standard with air-conditioning and can accommodate up to 30 dogs. There are eight paddocks of differing sizes adjoining the kennels, a separate training and exercise run, and a larger separate paddock to the north and east of the main house. Subject to any necessary consents the potential exists to establish a kennels or cattery business, or provide facilities for those with equestrian interests.
