The village is approximately a ten minute walk away and offers a mainline railway station with direct links to London Waterloo (approx. 90 minutes), a well-regarded primary school and tertiary college and a good local community of shops and restaurants.
The picturesque village of Beaulieu lies 7 miles to the east with the marina of Bucklers Hard on the Beaulieu River. Approximately 4 miles to the south is the Georgian market town of Lymington with its extensive yachting facilities, its famous Saturday county market and ferry service to Yarmouth, Isle of Wight. To the north is the village of Lyndhurst and Junction 1 of the M27 motorway which links to the M3 giving access to London.
This excellent family home has been enlarged in recent times to offer a flexible layout to meet the requirements of a modern day family requiring ancillary accommodation.
A covered entrance porch opens into a welcoming entrance hallway which in turn links to a useful utility room, garage and wc, with stairs ascending to the first floor.
Also set off the entrance hall is a superb sitting room extending the full depth of the property which includes a feature fireplace with stone surround and hearth and a large front aspect window overlooking the garden.
From the sitting room, double doors open into the kitchen/breakfast room with a rear aspect window overlooking the garden. The kitchen is fitted with arrange of modern Howden’s units with wood block work surfaces, a breakfast bar and a range of built-in appliances.
Both the sitting room and the kitchen/breakfast room open into a superb triple aspect, multi-purpose garden/dining room with glazed pitched roof, underfloor heating and double bi-fold doors opening out onto the rear garden.
Also accessed from the sitting room is the annexe living space, with engineered oak flooring extending throughout the entire ground floor layout.
To the first floor, a large landing area with built-in storage cupboards links to the master bedroom with en-suite shower room, three further bedrooms and a modern family bathroom comprising a panelled bath, shower, wash basin and wc. All of the bedrooms feature built-in wardrobes.
A small additional area on the landing could be used as a small study area.
Adjoining the property and cleverly built to fuse perfectly with the original house is an excellent two story, one bedroom annexe.
This superb space can be accessed via its own private front door or from the sitting room of the main house, meaning it can form part of the existing dwelling or ancillary accommodation depending on requirements.
To the ground floor, a hallway links to a double aspect sitting room with feature fireplace, underfloor heating and double doors opening onto a small area of private garden, a wc and a Howden’s kitchen fitted with a range of modern units and appliances.
Stairs from the hallway lead up to the first floor bedroom with built-in sliding wardrobes and an en-suite comprising a large shower cubicle, hand wash basin, wc and towel rail.
NB: The property offers considerable potential for income generation/holiday let by way of the adjoining annex.
Grounds & Gardens
To the front aspect, a driveway provides off road parking facilities and access to the integral double garage. Set alongside the driveway is a small area of garden which is laid to lawn.
A side access gate leads round to the main entrance for the annexe accommodation and into the main area of garden. The rear garden is apportioned into different areas of interest comprising areas of formal lawn, a vegetable garden with raised plant beds and a delightful Mediterranean garden providing a haven of peace and tranquillity in suburban surrounds.
The grounds are flanked by timber fence boundaries with a couple of timber sheds set within the rear garden.
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.
