The property is situated in a prime position on the western periphery the village of Brockenhurst in an exclusive area known as South Weirs. The open forest sits directly in front of the property providing many miles of countryside for walking and riding. The nearby Brockenhurst village centre is easily accessible offering a mainline station with direct access to London Waterloo (approximately 90 minutes) and an extensive range of local shops and restaurants. About 4 miles south is the Georgian market town of Lymington with its extensive yachting facilities, a ferry service to Yarmouth, Isle of Wight 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.
The property has undergone an extensive programme of refurbishment having been both reconfigured and enlarged to create a free flowing layout. Meticulous attention to detail is evident throughout with character features such as fireplaces, modern Sash windows and exposed Oak flooring combining elegantly with modern fixtures and fittings to create a wonderful balance of old and new throughout. A small lobby leads one side to a lovely front aspect sitting room with log burning stove and to the other, a useful reception/family room. Adjoining the family room is a magnificent double aspect kitchen/dining/living room fitted with a range of contemporary units and built-in appliances and an impressive island unit with Smeg sink. This superb room offers a good sense of space and light which is enhanced by full-width bi-fold doors and skylight windows. There is also a wc set off the kitchen. To the first floor, the front aspect master bedroom features a built-in wardrobe and stunning elevated views across the open forest. Further rooms to this level include a double aspect rear bedroom with views and a family bathroom. From the first floor landing a second stairwell leads up to a multi-purpose, double aspect loft room/bedroom 3.
A pretty picket fence with hatchet gate borders the front of the property and a small area of lawn garden. Side access leads to the rear garden which is mainly laid to lawn with a dissecting pathway leading through to a fantastic double aspect, fully fitted home office overlooking fields and a useful store room. Parking is available to the front of the property.

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.
