The property is situated in a quiet cul-de-sac location within easy access of Brockenhurst Village, which offers a mainline railway station with direct links to London Waterloo and a good local community of shops and restaurants. 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.
Constructed in the late 1980s by well-regarded architects Cheshire Robbins, this superb property offers a number of impressive features combined with well-proportioned accommodation throughout.
A wooden front door with full length side window opens into the entrance hall with exposed wooden flooring, which in turn provides access to the main ground floor living spaces.
Positioned at the rear of the property to enjoy the views across the garden, the triple aspect sitting room features exposed wooden floors and an open fireplace set on a brick heath, within an exposed chimney breast.
The sitting room is open to the superb, double aspect kitchen/dining/family room, which has been cleverly staggered across two levels to again enjoy the views across the rear gardens.
The kitchen area is set on the upper level and offers a good size space, fitted with a modern range of wall and base units, granite work surfaces and built-in appliances, including a double oven and induction hob with extractor over. A large breakfast bar extends across one side of the kitchen, providing an elevated vantage point for the lovely rear garden. From the kitchen area, there are two openings where a couple of steps lead down into the dining/additional seating area, which again features exposed wooden floors and views. Both the main sitting room and the kitchen/family/dining room feature doors opening out onto the rear terrace.
Also accessed off the main entrance hall is a good size study with window overlooking the front aspect, a utility room with door opening out to the side and a cloakroom. There is also internal access to the large double garage, which in turn leads through to a separate sound proofed music room, which offers options for a variety of different uses.
To the first floor, a landing area links to the superb, double aspect master bedroom, featuring a vaulted ceiling, separate dressing area and elevated views across the grounds. The master bedroom links through to another double bedroom via a beautifully appointed ‘Jack and Jill’ en-suite shower room.
Set off the other side of the landing are two additional large double bedrooms, both of which feature windows and vaulted ceilings with exposed timber beams providing a real sense of space and light throughout. These bedrooms are served by a modern and stylish family bathroom.
The property is approached via a large brick paved driveway providing off road parking for several vehicles and access to the integral double garage.
The gardens are a particular feature of note, extending to the rear and side of the property and enjoying a southerly and westerly aspect. The gardens are divided into two separate areas of lawn, bounded by established hedge and post and rail borders.
Adjoining and extending across the rear of the property is an area of paved terracing providing a fantastic space for entertaining and outdoor dining, whilst enjoying the evening sunshine.
There is also an attractive summer house set at the bottom of the garden.
The grounds offer a fantastic recreational space for young families or those with green fingers and extend in total to an excess of a third of an acre.
NB. The property comes under two land registry titles. The house and immediate garden under one and the field to the west as the second. The field is classified as ‘open space’ under planning terms and has covenants on it to protect it. Although classified as open space, the land belongs in title to the current owners and has been enjoyed by them as an extension to the 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.
