SITUATION

Secluded and perfectly located for both village amenities and the open forest, the property enjoys a wonderfully picturesque location. The village of Brockenhurst benefits from a mainline station with direct trains to London Waterloo and the North. The village has an extensive range of local shops, restaurants and cafés, a primary school, a renowned tertiary college and the prestigious Brockenhurst Manor Golf Club. The Georgian market town of Lymington is approximately six miles to the south, with its yachting facilities, popular Saturday county market and ferry service to Yarmouth, Isle of Wight. To the north is the ‘Forest gateway’ village of Lyndhurst, with easy access to Junction 1 of the M27 (links to the M3 and London).

LOCAL AREA

Brockenhurst is the largest village in the New Forest, boasting a thriving and lively community with all the necessary essentials of a proper working village, including a butcher, bakery, greengrocer, cafes and tea houses, plus services such as a doctor, dentist and post office.

In addition, the village boasts an 18 hole championship golf course, a luxurious spa and a number of highly regarded hotels including the Balmer Lawn, the Pig and Careys Manor, all of which offer fine dining restaurants.

In Brockenhurst the New Forest is all around you and wild ponies, deer and cows roam at will. The North and South Weirs streams join and as one flow through Brockenhurst. In Brookley Road in the warmer months of the year the stream flows across the road, commonly referred to as The Splash. There is a second ford in the Waters Green area of the village and this flows continuously throughout the year. From beyond this the Weirs stream meets the river formed by the Blackwater and Ober Water to become the Lymington River.

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.

THE PROPERTY

Built in 1929, this magnificent home offers a striking façade with brick and tile hung elevations with attractive casement windows and brick detailing.

Since being purchased, the property has been subject to an extensive programme of refurbishment and reconfiguration by the current owners, resulting in beautifully proportioned accommodation, with the principal living spaces and bedrooms orientated to enjoy the delightful southerly aspect.

Attention to detail is evident throughout, with statement rooms providing an elegant fusion of modern fittings and character features such as ornate cornicing, feature windows and fireplaces, as well as a combination of Italian ceramic tiled and exposed pine and waterproof oak effect flooring.

The ground floor accommodation comprises a good size entrance hall which links to a cloakroom and an impressive double aspect ‘L’ shaped drawing room, sitting room and study with open fireplace, all of which link to a truly stunning orangery extending across the rear of the house and opening onto the rear garden.

The superb, triple aspect kitchen/ room has been expertly opened out to provide a magnificent open plan space for everyday living and entertaining. The kitchen area has been expertly fitted with a stunning range of Neptune units and an additional Neptune island unit, all of which feature marble worksurfaces and built-in appliances including a Miele double oven and Neff gas hob.

Set off the kitchen is a good size utility, which in turn leads into a converted gym/study, where a door opens into a boiler room and double doors open out onto the front aspect.

A stairwell from the entrance hall with ‘Art deco’ styled wood balustrade leads up to the extensive first floor landing, linking to the sumptuous master bedroom with ornamental fireplace and en-suite bathroom, two double aspect, en-suite guest bedrooms, one of which features a walk-in wardrobe and two additional bedrooms. From bedroom five, a loft hatch with pull down ladder provides access to an attic room with a Velux window. A modern family shower room for these two remaining bedrooms completes the first floor layout.

GROUNDS & GARDENS

The property is approached via a sweeping driveway providing off road parking for several vehicles and access to a newly constructed double carport.

The beautifully maintained grounds wrap around the boundaries of this wonderful home, with the majority being laid to lawn and enjoying a southerly aspect.

Set just off the kitchen/breakfast room is a tiered paved sun terrace providing an ideal space for al-fresco dining and entertaining. The terrace overlooks and steps down to the swimming pool.

Attached to the house is a separate boiler room and gardeners WC, both of which are accessed externally.

The grounds in total extend to almost two thirds of an acre, interspersed with herbaceous planting and flanked by established tree, hedge and fence borders.
