Located on a quiet country lane in the sought-after village of Boldre and close to Lower Sandy Down. The Georgian market town of Lymington, famed for its river, marinas and yacht clubs, well-regarded schooling (both private and state) and extensive leisure amenities is 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.

A welcoming reception hallway with wooden floor allows room for a desk and where the attractive turning staircase leads to the first and second floors. The drawing room is light and spacious with delightful feature windows including two that are arched. There is a large double sided log burning fireplace and the room opens to the study. This room has a wall of fitted shelves and a large window to the south. The kitchen/dining room is again a spacious area incorporating a family snug. There are large glazed sliding doors from the dining area to the al fresco terrace with stunning views across the paddocks and garden. The kitchen is well designed with a large island unit, ample storage provision and a range of integrated appliances to include a dishwasher, eye level oven, microwave and fridge freezer. The adjacent utility room also has ample storage provision and is where the washing machine and dryer are located. There is a cupboard housing the gas boiler and pressurised hot water system and a further door to the large double garage.

On the first floor is the main bedroom suite with windows to both the east and south aspects, ample room for a reading area and a door to the large en suite bathroom. The bathroom has a free standing shower cubicle, bath, vanity unit and WC. There is an adjacent dressing room with fitted shelves and cupboards. There are two further generous double bedrooms and a well-appointed family bathroom to this floor. The stairs continue to the second floor where there are two double attic bedrooms with Velux windows and a well-appointed shower room.

The approach is via electric wooden entrance gates onto a sweeping gravel driveway with ample parking leading to the double garage. The gardens and grounds are a feature of note extending to some five and a half acres and are well maintained wrapping around the house and mainly laid to lawn with an array of mature planting and some specimen trees. The paddock is well fenced with a water supply and is approximately 4 and a half acres in size with separate vehicular access for hourse box etc. The riding out from the house is excellent with access to open forest via quiet lanes. The garden has discreet stone terraces positioned to enjoy the sunshine and ideal for al fresco dining. One in particular is adjacent to the kitchen/dining room and accessed from the house via large sliding glazed doors.

The setting of this house is a complete delight with the only sound being from the birdsong. It is so tranquil and set back from a quiet lane where there is a footpath nearby leading to the famous Royden Woods with uninterrupted woodland walks amongst the blue bells, at this time of year.

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.
