The property is current set up as two separate dwellings but could easily be converted back to a single residence if required.
The West Wing of the house is accessed via a solid wood front door opening into a good size entrance hall. From here, doors open into the double aspect sitting room with bay window and feature fireplace and the family/dining room, where sliding doors open out onto the rear terrace. The entrance hall also provides access to a separate cloakroom.
The kitchen is open to the family/dining room and is fitted to three sides with a range of wall and base units, built-in appliances, a separate larder room and a front aspect window overlooking the driveway.
From the family/dining room, a door opens into the central portion of the house which comprises a large reception hall linking to a study, utility room and the main bedroom at the back of the house featuring built-in wardrobes and views across the rear garden and grounds beyond. The main bedroom is served by a large en-suite bathroom comprising a panelled bath, shower cubicle, dual wash basins and a WC. This central portion of the house can also be accessed externally via a main entrance door and features a turning stairwell ascending to the first floor.
The East Wing of the property is currently configured as a separate self-contained area of the house which can be accessed externally from a front entrance door or internally from the study in the main part of the house.
An entrance hall leads through to an extensive, double aspect annex/sitting room with feature fireplace, bay window overlooking the grounds and sliding doors leading out to the rear terrace.
Adjoining the annex/sitting room to the front aspect is a kitchen fitted to three sides with a range of fitted wall and base units and built-in appliances. The kitchen overlooks the driveway and also links back into the entrance hall, which in turn links into a useful utility room.
This section of the house is completed by a large double bedroom with built-in wardrobe and bay window overlooking the grounds. This bedroom is served by a good size en-suite bathroom comprising a large walk in shower, wash basin and WC.
To the first floor, a landing area links to four double bedrooms, all of which benefit from built-in storage facilities. Two of the bedrooms enjoy stunning elevated views across the garden and grounds, whilst the other two look out to the front and side aspects respectively. Also accessed from one of the bedrooms is a large eaves storage area, which opens into an airing cupboard.
All of the bedrooms to this level are served by a family bathroom comprising a panelled bath, wash basin and WC.
GROUNDS & GARDENS
To the front of the house is a long sweeping driveway providing off road parking facilities for multiple vehicles and access to a double and single carport. An area of hard standing provides an ideal storage space for a motorhome or boat.
To the side of the property is an enclosed yard with a large outbuilding comprising a tack room, hay and feed store and five loose boxes with a water and electricity supply.
The gardens and grounds to the rear are a particular feature of the property, extending to approximately four acres in total. The grounds comprise approximately one acre of formal, landscaped gardens with ornamental fishpond and enclosed kitchen garden and three acres of divided paddock land.

The property is situated on the open forest in a private, but not remote location between Lymington and Brockenhurst. The stunning location, near to the picturesque Setley Pond is a significant feature, with the house enjoying direct forest access and Forest Rights.
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.
Lymington High Street offers a wide range of independent and chain stores as well as cafes, pubs and restaurants.
Lymington’s reputation as a centre for sailing is well deserved with several yacht havens and marinas catering for all types of craft. There are two sailing clubs that offer competitive and casual racing for all.
The house lies within the New Forest National Park and there are attractive walks from the house through leafy lanes that lead to the open spaces of the Forest itself over which there are many walks, rides and cycle trails.
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.
