The main residence features an attractive double fronted, wisteria clad façade balanced by Sash and Dormer windows under a tiled roof.
The well-appointed accommodation is set across three floors, with the principle living rooms enjoying views over the extensive grounds and countryside beyond.
To the ground floor, an entrance porch opens into a hallway providing access to a second study/reception room one side and to the other, a drawing room with feature Inglenook fireplace.
Open to the drawing room is a sitting room with fireplace and double doors opening onto the grounds.
An impressive 21’ kitchen/breakfast room fitted with a range of modern units and appliances links to both a utility and a dining room enjoying views across the grounds.
Further rooms to this level include a main study/office room, ground floor bedroom with en-suite bathroom and a wc.
To the first floor, a landing area leads to the master suite, two further bedrooms and a family bathroom, with two further rooms to the top floor.
The property stands on the edge of the much sought after village of Brockenhurst, enjoying a delightful countryside setting adjoining the open forest; yet within easy reach of the village centre and a range of boutique shops, convenience stores and restaurants. Brockenhurst further boasts an 18 hole championship golf course as well as a well-regarded primary school and tertiary college. Brockenhurst Rail Station is also set within the village providing direct links to London Waterloo (approximately 90 minutes) and the North, as well as further destinations along the South Coast. The picturesque village of Beaulieu lies 7 miles to the east with the marina of Bucklers Hard on the Beaulieu River. Approximately 4 miles to the south is the Georgian market town of Lymington with its extensive yachting facilities, its famous Saturday county market and ferry service to Yarmouth, Isle of Wight. To the north is the village of Lyndhurst and Junction 1 of the M27 motorway which links to the M3 giving access to London.
Set around a graveled courtyard, there are numerous outbuildings offering a variety of uses. Of particular note is a stunning double barn with vaulted ceilings opening out onto the pool terrace. We understand that planning was granted for the change of use of the barn to a gallery/studio, but has since lapsed. Set at a right angle to the barn is a home office, with kitchenette, wc and open wash down area. Also set within the courtyard is a separate outbuilding comprising numerous stabling facilities to both sides and a further outbuilding with space above.
The beautifully maintained grounds comprise a large courtyard area, formal lawn gardens and a separate paddock, all of which are clearly defined by post and rail borders. Set to the rear of the outbuildings is a heated swimming pool with paved surround screened by a row of conifer trees. In total, the grounds extend to approximately 1.65 acres, with stunning elevated views across the adjoining open countryside beyond. The rear vista is arguably one of the finest in Brockenhurst. At the far end of Tile Barn Lane is direct access to the open forest for both riding and walking.
AGENTS NOTE – We understand from the current owners that the property has New Forest commoning and fuelwood rights.
Living in Brockenhurst
It is Brockenhurst’s mainline station (service into London Waterloo approximately 90 minutes) that turns the dream of a country idyll into reality for those working up in London and makes Brockenhurst village a property hot spot.
Brockenhurst is the largest village in the New Forest, a thriving and lively mix of community and cachet, quality and quirky with all the necessary essentials of a proper working village - butcher, bakery and greengrocer, full quota of cafes and tea houses, plus services such as doctor, dentist and post office. Work into the equation the unexpected and the glamorous: premier golf course, luxurious spa and top restaurants such as The Pig (the first in the group of hip country house hotels) and Cambium (fine dining at Careys Manor)... It all makes Brockenhurst a gem in the heart of the Forest.
Property ranges from Edwardian villas to thatched timber-framed cottages, and imaginative new builds to old Forest lodges. Many properties have access or views to open Forest and almost all are within walking distance of the station.
