The property is set back on a large driveway which is accessed from the popular Sway Road, close to the centre of Brockenhurst village which offers a mainline railway station with direct links to London Waterloo 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, ferry service to Yarmouth, Isle of Wight and its famous Saturday county market. To the north is the village of Lyndhurst and Junction 1 of the M27 motorway which links to the M3 giving access to London.
The property offers a modern white render and exposed brick façade with a central open porchway and oversize windows set either side.
A solid wood front door from the porchway opens into a good size central hallway which looks through the house to the beautiful rear garden beyond. From the hallway, a turning staircase ascends to the first floor.
Set off the entrance hallway is a double aspect sitting room fitted with an inset cassette wood-burning stove, slate hearth and wooden floors. Oversize windows overlook the grounds to the front and side and fill the room with light.
Adjoining and set behind the sitting room is a double aspect open plan kitchen/dining room offering stunning views across the rear garden. The kitchen is fitted with a range of modern wall and base units and built-in appliances including a double oven and a four ring gas hob with suspended extractor unit over. From the dining area, sliding doors open out onto the paved sun terrace and grounds.
Set to the other side of the hallway are two bedrooms and a family bathroom fitted with a panelled bath, wash basin and wc. Both of the bedrooms offer built-in wardrobe storage with one bedroom enjoying views across the front aspect, and the other overlooking the rear garden. The ground floor layout is completed by a utility lobby.
To the first floor, a large landing/study area links to two substantial double aspect first floor bedrooms and a bathroom comprising a shower cubicle, wash basin and WC. Both of the first floor bedrooms enjoy elevated views across the front and rear gardens, with one of the bedrooms adjoining a large attic/eaves storage area offering potential for an en-suite bathroom.
NB. The property benefits from granted planning permission to extend to the rear and create a magnificent open plan kitchen/dining/family room with two glass elevations, as well as increase the size of the porch and extend the dormer windows across the first floor with a slate tiled roof to create additional space and an extra bedroom. Please enquire in office for full plans.
Grounds and Gardens
The property is accessed from the Sway Road via electric gates which open onto a large sweeping gravel driveway providing off road parking for multiple vehicles and access to the detached double garage set to the side of the property.
The front garden is mainly laid to lawn and extremely well screened with a front boundary of established high hedging and side boundaries of mature hedging and close boarded wooden fencing.
The front garden extends down the southern side of the property to the sun terrace and spectacular rear garden, which is a particular feature of this property.
The sun terrace enjoys a delightful westerly aspect and adjoins and extends across the rear of the house to an area behind the garage where there currently lies a hot-tub. The terrace makes a wonderful space for outdoor dining whilst overlooking the garden and enjoying the evening sunshine.
The rear garden is laid to level lawn and flanked to both sides by mature trees and established shrubs providing a high degree of privacy. From the garden, there are stunning open views across the adjoining paddock land to the rear boundary.
A superb detached outbuilding (previously a stable block) is formed of block construction with insulated walls, ceiling, floors, weatherboard cladding and a pitched tiled roof. This superb space offers options for a variety of usages and is currently configured as a separate bedroom, sitting room and shower room/WC. The lodge also benefits from a feature wood burning stove and two sets of double doors to the front and side elevations opening onto areas of hardstanding. To the rear is a wood store.
Detached Double Garage
Accessed via an electronically operated up and over door. There are two windows to the rear aspect, as well as a side courtesy door, light and power.
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.
