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. The property has been extended to its full potential and offers contemporary, spacious accommodation set within a quarter acre of national park. 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 home is currently a successful holiday let and is spectacularly well presented with vaulted ceilings, exposed beams, an open fireplace and full length windows. An oak porch opens on to the formal lounge with open fireplace, wood panelled walls and a rear aspect window. Double sliding doors open in to the main kitchen/family room with wonderful floor to ceiling windows and bi-fold doors over looking the landscaped gardens. The high end kitchen is the heart of the house with a range of fitted cupboards and work surfaces, breakfast bar and integrated white goods. There are three bedrooms, all interior designed, a family bathroom with butler sink, bath and shower and an en suite bathroom.
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 an outside bath with hot and cold taps and a superb covered garden kitchen ideal for outdoor entertaining complete with barbecue. There is ample parking for several cars adjacent to the house 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.
