Believed to have built in the late 1920’s and having been in the same ownership for the last forty years, this magnificent residence offers attractive and imposing white washed elevations combined with well-proportioned accommodation that exudes a sense of elegance and grandeur throughout.
The property is accessed via a solid wood front door set between two windows which opens into a large and inviting entrance hall.
From here, doors open into the main hallway, as well as a snug room to one side and a double aspect formal dining room to the other. Both the snug and dining room enjoy views across the front aspect, with the latter further benefiting from a door opening out to the side aspect. Also accessed from the entrance hall is the kitchen/breakfast room which leads to a small lobby area linking to a cloakroom and opening out onto the side aspect.
The kitchen is fitted with a range of wooden units and built-in appliances and enjoys views to the rear across the garden. Also set off the kitchen/breakfast room is a pantry cupboard and a useful utility room with work surface and space and plumbing for appliances.
NB. The kitchen/breakfast room adjoins the dining room and could be knocked through to create one magnificent, front-to-back kitchen/dining/family befitting the needs of a modern day lifestyle and forming the entire west wing of the house. Set across the hallway to the other side of the house and open to the snug room, is a wonderful, triple aspect sitting room with feature fireplace and oversize windows offering views across the front and rear gardens. This superb space also opens through into a lovely, triple aspect garden room/study which enjoys plenty of natural light and doors opening out onto the rear garden.
Also set off the hall is a lovely covered porch area to the rear of the property opening onto the rear terrace and garden.
To the first floor, a large landing area links to the four bedrooms and family bathroom.
The grand master bedroom suite enjoys a lovely double aspect, as well as a bank of built-in wardrobes and an en-suite bathroom with both a bath and a shower.
The principal guest bedroom is set to the other side of the house and enjoys a range of built-in wardrobes and a triple aspect with lovely southerly views across the rear garden.
There are two further double bedrooms to this level, both of which have built-in wardrobes and windows overlooking the garden.
The bedrooms are served by a family bathroom which again benefits from both a bath and a shower.
Granted planning permission currently exists for the erection of a detached garage at the end of the drive. Planning application 19/00599.
The property is situated within yards of beautiful open forest and the picturesque Setley Pond, in an easily accessible location between Lymington and Brockenhurst. The Georgian market town of Lymington (2 miles South) offers exceptional sailing facilities and a wide range of boutique style shops and restaurants. The popular village of Brockenhurst also offers a range of amenities as well as a mainline rail station linking to London’s Waterloo Station (approximately 90 minutes). Bournemouth and Southampton airports offer both national and international flights. The M27 offers a good motorway link to the M3 into London.
Ground and Gardens
The property is accessed via double gates opening onto a large gravel driveway providing off road parking facilities for multiple vehicles. Set either side of the driveway are areas of lawn garden.
The gardens wrap around the side of the house to the large, south facing rear garden which is laid to level lawn with attractive planted borders. This wonderful space provides a great recreational space for children and adults alike.
Adjoining the rear of the house is a paved sun terrace enjoying a delightful southerly aspect and providing an excellent space for outdoor dining and entertaining. The beautiful gardens and grounds extend to approximately one acre, with established tree, hedge and fence borders providing a high degree of privacy and seclusion.
The open forest is accessible just outside the house, at the top of Jealous Lane. A short distance down the lane is the renowned beauty spot known as Setley Pond.
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.
