The property is situated on the north side of the New Forest village of Brockenhurst, with a frontage that looks across the open forest. The New Forest National Park offers many miles of unspoilt walking and riding and covers an area of approximately 92,000 acres.
Brockenhurst benefits from a mainline station with direct access to London/Waterloo and an extensive range of local shops, restaurants, a primary school and popular tertiary college, and the renowned Brockenhurst Golf Club. The Georgian market town of Lymington is approximately 5 miles south with its extensive yachting facilities and a Saturday market. To the north is the New Forest village of Lyndhurst and Junction 1 of the M27 motorway which links to the M3 for access to London.
Extended by the current vendor, this delightful chalet style property offers attractive white rendered elevations and double glazed windows set under a triple dormer window roofline.
A glazed front door opens into a good size hallway, which in turn links to the principle ground floor rooms.
The sitting room which was originally two rooms has been opened up to make one lovely large and light, yet cosy room. The original open fireplace sits at one end with a door going into a lovely garden room and a further door out into the rear garden. A door from the other end of the sitting room opens out onto a covered loggia.
The kitchen/breakfast room is situated at the back of the house and is fitted with tiled flooring, a range of wall and base cabinets and an integrated double oven. There is also space for freestanding appliances, as well as a small table and chairs. From the kitchen/breakfast room, a serving hatch leads to the sitting room and the original stable door opens out to the side entrance and garage. A rear aspect window also offers attractive views of the garden.
Adjoining the kitchen area is a separate dining room with front aspect window. The dining room could be knocked through into the kitchen if required to create one large, open plan kitchen/dining/family room extending the full depth of the house.
Further rooms to the ground floor include a double aspect bedroom overlooking the front and side garden and a separate shower room with shower cubicle, wash hand basin and wc.
From the entrance hall, a turning stairwell ascends to the spacious first floor landing, with a small door opening into an eaves storage space running the length of the house.
The master bedroom is a large and light room benefiting from fitted cupboards and double aspect windows overlooking the open forest to the front and the garden and adjoining paddock to the rear.
Further rooms to the first floor include a guest bedroom with built-in cupboard, single fourth bedroom/study and a family bathroom featuring tiled flooring and half tiled walls, a bath, shower cubicle, bidet and wc. The bathroom also benefits from a rear aspect window.

A side access gate leads to the side and rear garden which again are predominantly laid to lawn, with a vegetable plot set to the side of property. The rear garden is flanked by a number of shrubs, fruit trees and low hedging and features a coal store and two timber sheds.
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.
