Grounds and Gardens
Set back off the road, the property is approached via a picket gate set in between a hedgerow providing ample privacy at the front of the property. The front garden has been meticulously designed and maintained to create a cottage style garden with carefully selected flowers, shrubs and boxed hedges creating borders around the two lawned areas. A paved pathway leads from the front gate to the front door and side gate providing rear access to the property. A screened area tucked away to the side provides a sheltered area for a gardening patch with greenhouse.
To the rear of the property is a large lawn with interspersed planting and a stunning bed full of cottage flowers running nearly the full length of the garden. To the end is a gardener’s shed which makes a stunning feature next to the wooden bridge running over the culvert.
Leading out from the property is a patio which wraps around the rear of the property, ideal for alfresco dining. A raised fishpond with water feature creates an inviting sound when sat outside enjoying the westerly and southerly aspect.
To the side of the property are numerous outbuildings benefiting from electricity making them an ideal home office if required. A picket fence with gate allows access to the car port.

The living room benefits from views both to the front and the rear of the property and further offers a feature wood burner and engineered wood flooring throughout. The room is divided by furniture into two and the other half houses a dining room table and chairs. Double doors from the living area and dining area lead to a wonderful garden room with an exposed brickwork wall, tiled flooring with under floor heating and access onto the patio. The room enjoys stunning views to the rear overlooking the garden and fields beyond.
A door leads through from the dining area into a spacious kitchen/breakfast room with tiled flooring and a backdoor leading out onto the patio. This light and spacious room offers a wonderful area to cook, eat and relax with space for a dining room table and sofa; an ideal family room. The kitchen is comprehensively fitted out with a range of wooden base and wall mounted units, a large electric Aga as well as space for a large American style fridge freezer. The kitchen provides ample storage space and further benefits from a utility room which currently houses a washing machine, dishwasher, sink and more cupboards.
Leading up the stairs, the master bedroom offers views over the front and rear elevations and includes built in wardrobes and also access into the eaves providing further storage space. To the other end of the landing is the second guest bedroom of equal proportion. Both bedrooms are serviced by a family bathroom comprising a bath with shower connection, WC, sink as well as a separate shower room with WC and sink further down the landing.
Stairs lead from the centre of the landing up into the loft conversion where there’s space for two beds either end of the room. Velux windows provide light into the room as well as a recessed space for a sofa.
Living in Bramshaw
This is surely New Forest life at its most accessible. Turn off the M27 at junction one and you are immediately plunged into the quiet backwaters of the Forest, gently weaving past donkeys and ponies grazing in front of Hanzel and Gretel-style woodland cottages. This is Bramshaw, an attractive and peaceful parish that encompasses the hamlets of Brook and Fritham. Bramshaw is strung out. Its handful of amenities include Bramshaw Golf Club (with two courses, including Hampshire’s oldest course), village hall, rustic garage and Bentley showroom. There’s also a selection of good inns including The Bell Inn and Green Dragon at Brook and the Royal Oak at Fritham (a Forest institution and part of a working farm). Local groups range from Bramshaw Bunnies for pre-school toddlers to the local cricket club. Back roads through the Forest lead to Romsey, a thriving market town with numerous facilities (including Waitrose). Property comprises big, individual houses, farms and small-holdings, and cottages tucked down country lanes, scattered around glades and greens. The National Trust owns tracts of land here including Bramshaw Commons, thousands of acres of some of the best surviving examples of lowland heath in Europe.
