Believed to have been built in the mid nineteenth century, this wonderful home has been in the same ownership since 1977.
The property offers spacious and well configured accommodation throughout, with the potential to create additional living/bedroom space if required.
From the courtyard, a solid wood front door opens into an entrance lobby, which in turn leads to a dining hall with rear aspect window overlooking the grounds. From the dining hall, there is access to a small cloakroom and a turning stairwell ascending to the first floor.
The impressive double aspect sitting room features a gas fireplace set within an attractive brick surround and views to both the front and rear. Doors from the sitting room open into a multi-purpose study and a conservatory/garden room. The study features a rear aspect window and a door opening onto the courtyard, whilst the conservatory/garden room features full height windows to all sides and a door opening onto the rear terrace.
The triple aspect kitchen/breakfast room features windows overlooking the side and rear gardens and a door with windows either side opening onto the rear terrace. The kitchen area is fitted with a range of wall and base units to both sides, work surfaces and space for appliances. Set to the far corner of the kitchen is a dedicated breakfast area with fitted furniture and space for a table.
From the kitchen, a door opens into a useful, double aspect utility area, where a further door opens out onto the side terrace.
To the first floor, a large landing area with storage cupboards and side window provides access to all bedroom and bathroom accommodation.
The main, double aspect bedroom offers an extensive space with a part vaulted ceiling, built-in wardrobes and windows providing stunning elevated views across the rear garden.
The second bedroom again offers a substantial space with a bank of built-in wardrobes and windows providing elevated views across the side garden.
Both of the bedrooms enjoy the benefit of private bathrooms, both of which feature panelled baths, wash basins and WC’s.
NB. The potential exists to create a third first floor bedroom by creating a door into what is currently an inaccessible roof space. (Not marked on floor plan).
NB. The potential also exists to create a large kitchen/dining/family room akin to a modern day lifestyle by extending to the side and or the addition of an orangery to the rear.
(All of the above would be subject to the relevant planning consents being granted – We understand the property has not been extended since 1977 and draft plans are available for review).
GROUNDS & GARDENS
To the front, an open entrance with cattle grid leads across a shared gravelled driveway to an attractive shared brick courtyard and parking area with detached garage.
The beautiful garden extends across the back and round the far side of the house. The gardens are laid to level lawn and interspersed with some planted beds and trees.
To the side aspect is a vegetable garden with vegetable beds, a greenhouse and a small secondary paved seating terrace.
The grounds enjoy a lovely westerly aspect and are flanked by established tree and fence panel borders providing a high degree of privacy and seclusion.
In total, the grounds associated with the property extend to almost half an acre.

The property is located in a rarely available and highly sought after location along a private no through lane, on the western edge of Brockenhurst. The open forest is accessed via a footpath leading down into North Weirs or at the start of the lane, where the forest lies opposite. 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.
The village of Beaulieu lies about 7 miles to the east, to the south of which is the marina of Bucklers Hard on the Beaulieu River.
About 4 miles south is the Georgian market town of Lymington with its extensive yachting facilities, Saturday market and a ferry service to Yarmouth, Isle of Wight.
To the north is the 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.
