This attractive property stands in a superb position and offers an elegant façade of white render elevations and casement windows, set under a tile hung roof.
To the ground floor, a front door with windows set either side opens into a welcoming entrance hall, which in turn leads to a larger inner hallway, where a turning stairwell ascends to the first floor.

Within the kitchen is a useful larder cupboard with a granite ‘cold shelf’ inside and next to this, ample space to fit full height drinks chillers or further units and work surface if required.
Laid throughout the kitchen/dining room and hallway is stunning, solid stone flooring, which benefits from under floor heating.
To the first floor, a landing area with wooden flooring links to all four of the bedrooms as well as the family bathroom.

A modern, family bathroom comprising a panelled bath with Villeroy & Boch wash basin and WC completes the first floor layout.
NB. The potential exists to extend into the large attic space to create additional living/bedroom accommodation if required (subject to planning consent).
The property is situated on the edge of the popular New Forest village of Brockenhurst, with views across the open forest to the front and adjoining fields to the rear.
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.
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.
