Largest Sale on the South Coast

  • Date: 4th July 2022

Hellier Langston has just completed the sale of Carlton House, Netley Marsh. Situated in the heart of the New Forest on 5.6 acres, the property has been sold for partial residential conversion and to let offices.

Carlton House is a 37,400 sq ft property located just off the southern side of the A336 Ringwood Road to the west of Netley Marsh. The surrounding landscape is dominated by pasture and woodland, all set within the New Forest National Park and the Forest North East Conservation area. The property was originally constructed in the 19th Century and was adapted and extended from a farmhouse in 1855. 

Carlton House, Netley Marsh.

The unit has 3 main buildings, Carlton House, North and South Lodge and The Studio. 

 Carlton House is a horse-shoe shaped building which provides a combination of single and two-storey accommodation, with brick elevations under a pitched slate roof. The building incorporates many original architectural features common to both the period and the locality which forms part of the Forest North East Conservation Area.

 The North and South Lodge buildings are converted single-storey barn structures, with a lower ground/basement area located under the South Lodge. Internally, the space provides mainly open-plan accommodation, with male and female WCs located adjacent to the main entrance.

 The Studio comprises a modern purpose-built office building over two storeys, with an additional lower ground floor currently providing canteen and kitchen facilities.

Elevations are partly rendered and part timber clad under a flat roof incorporating large ‘north light’ style roof lights.

 The property has been sold by private individuals jointly with Ramboll; a multinational engineering consultancy firm, for partial residential conversion with some areas being retained as offices to let. This is one of the largest sales on the South Coast in recent times and possibly the largest ever office disposal within the New Forest National Park.

Hellier Langston Director Jason Webb said “This was one of the most complex disposals I have been involved with. We had to navigate our way through complex planning policies within both a National Park and a Conservation Area, including issues with Nitrates Mitigation and other Habitats contributions. Whilst also dealing with joint vendors, unregistered land, a high-pressure oil pipeline and having to create a new site entrance.”
