Located on a quiet country lane in the extremely sought after village of Boldre with the Georgian market town of Lymington, famed for its rivers, marinas and yacht clubs, a diverse range of shops, well-regarded schooling (both private and state) and extensive leisure amenities within approximately 2½ miles. A little over 2 miles due north is the similarly popular New Forest village of Brockenhurst offering a Tertiary College, excellent shopping, a popular Golf Club and useful mainline rail connection (London/Waterloo journey time approximately 90 minutes). The property enjoys glorious unspoilt views across the picturesque and tranquil countryside of the Boldre Valley much of which forms part of the New Forest National Park. Fantastic walking and riding is close by in Royden Woods as well as throughout the National Park where there is also unrivalled road and cross country cycling.
The property is surrounded by the beautiful countryside and the land is situated within the New Forest National Park offering extensive riding and walking opportunities.
After passing through the double wooden entrance gates, there is a large stone courtyard and driveway. A separate gate at the rear of the courtyard gives easy access for horse boxes etc and leads to the paddocks and kitchen garden. The whole is extremely well designed being beautifully presented and well maintained with a productive growing area to the rear of the kitchen leading to a separate outdoor pool enclosed by a brick wall; ideal for private enjoyment of the pool and pool house. This newly constructed room is ideal for entertaining with bi-folding doors, a bar and wet room and heated with an air source heat pump as well as solar panels.
The paddocks have secure stock fencing and a water supply and are well-drained. There is an area to keep goats and chickens, two green houses and wooden sheds. There is also hard standing for the parking of boats and camper vans.
The property has Forest Rights to include grazing livestock in the National Park and cordage (a cord of wood per annum).
An oak framed entrance leads to the welcoming reception hallway with flag stone floor and turning staircase to the first floor and part galleried landing. Beautiful design touches can be enjoyed throughout this wonderful home, for example, the retro pewter radiator in the hall and contemporary light fittings. The sitting room is a generous area with large windows to triple aspect, a large log burning stove and fitted full-height book shelves to one wall; an ideal area to read and reflect. The study has an ornate open fireplace and built-in book cases. There is a gym and adjacent cloakroom and this could also become a ground floor bedroom. Stepping down there are doors to ample storage and to the laundry/boot room with a door to the gardens. The impressive kitchen/living/dining room is vaulted with exposed timber beams and one entire wall of glazed units and doors to the large entertaining terrace and gardens. The room allows for a family snug area, a dining area and then is open to the kitchen area, divided by a large quartz topped bar. The kitchen is comprehensively fitted with ample storage provision, a range style cooker, dishwasher, space for fridge and freezer and with a picture window overlooking the kitchen garden and paddocks. A door leads into a converted stable providing an additional work room/pantry with a stable door to the kitchen garden.
The first floor accommodation comprises a spacious master bedroom suite with glazed doors to a Juliet balcony, one wall of fitted wardrobes, access to loft space and an en-suite shower room with wc, and hand basin. The guest suite has windows to triple aspects with lovely views over the grounds and an en-suite shower room with wc, and hand basin. There are two further double bedrooms and a large family bathroom. To the landing is an airing cupboard and access to the loft space.
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. Looking for an Estate Agent in Brockenhurst? Spencers are here to help.
