The property sits on a generous plot in one of the area’s most sought after addresses where spacious waterside homes are spread along the shoreline. The setting is particularly unspoilt and peaceful as the access road attracts very little traffic while the open spaces of The Forest, as well as a beach and paddle board launching point are also nearby. All manner of outdoor activities are close at hand with walking, riding and cycling across miles of unspoilt tracks in the Forest or sailing at either Lymington or Bucklers Hard. There is a popular local pub at East End and direct rail services to London Waterloo depart regularly from Brockenhurst and take approximately 2 hours.
This charming timber framed bungalow is the ideal holiday retreat or rental investment. To take full advantage of its glorious position there is the possibility to further extend the accommodation by up to 30% or to extend on a single story by up to 4m (subject to the necessary consents). The property is accessed through a five bar gate leading to a gravel drive which leads to a turning and parking area adjacent to the house.
The front door leads to an open plan kitchen and living area with a tiled floor and Aga and the accommodation is well presented throughout. Beyond the kitchen is a hallway leading to two double bedrooms, a family bathroom and a utility/shower room. At the opposite end of the living room is a third bedroom/study next to which is a curving staircase leading to a mezzanine floor.
The bungalow overlooks its gardens which extend to approximately a quarter of an acre and contain areas of level lawn and some mature trees along with hedges at the boundary. There is ample parking for several cars adjacent to the bungalow and the gardens have a southerly aspect as well as a peaceful atmosphere well suited to this charming location.
Living in Beaulieu
Beaulieu, as its name suggests, is beautiful. This village is a jewel of the New Forest, sitting prettily beside the River Beaulieu with Palace House, the seat of the Montagu family, as backdrop. This is an estate village which has been in the keeping of the Montagu family for 477 years. Today Beaulieu is familiar worldwide for the National Motor Museum, but the village attracts visitors, too. It has a quaint High Street of smart independents in pretty brick and timber-framed period properties, including art gallery, chocolate studio, floral designer, plus gift shops, tea room, village stores, garden centre, community garden and the village school (rated ‘good’ by Ofsted).
Beaulieu is also home to Beaulieu Garage (specialising in classic and vintage cars) and Terrace Restaurant at the Montagu Arms, the only restaurant in the New Forest to hold a Michelin Star. Along the road towards picturesque Hatchet Pond is Beaulieu Organic Farm Shop.
As for property, there are some good-sized period country houses, while Dock Lane, which runs alongside the river, is considered one of the most prestigious addresses in the Forest with a selection of stunning architect-designed modern builds.
