Description

The Property and The Land

1.25 Acres of land and 24 bedrooms with 9,000 square feet of internal space, this opportunity doesn’t come around too often, especially in this sought after location.

Standing as once one of the prominent Victorian houses, Furzedown House is now a hotel (Fountain Court) standing in only a small part of the original grounds, with a large stone fountain. Most of the grounds have been untouched or now used as parking for guests.

The 1st ed OS map 1870 (HCC), shows a small house in a modest estate planted with plenty of trees. Henry Pigeon was the owner and resident in 1891 and 1897 according to Mercier & Crockford and Kelly directories. The 4th ed OS map 1932 (HCC), shows a bigger house with one large conservatory or greenhouse and one small one behind.

The gardens have been developed with a fountain in front of the house and a new entrance and sweeping drive around a lawned area. The estate was for sale in 1950, described as having 11 beds, greenhouses, farmery... 3 cottages and about 15a of pasture (159M88/581 HRO). At some time in the 1970s, the house became a Fountain Court Hotel, together with the gardens comprising the entrance and sweeping drive, owned by Mr Stewart (PG).

Around 1985, the hotel was sold on, but the new owner only bought the building and a small part of the garden just beyond the fountain. A tarmac car park was built. A house (belonging to the owner of the hotel) was built adjacent to the car park and extending into the remaining part of the old garden.

We are also ideally situated if you are visiting the area on business. Fawley Refinery, Fawley Power Station, Marchwood & Hardley are all within a 5 minutes drive from the hotel.
