Grounds & Gardens
To the front aspect, a pedestrian gate opens into a delightful cottage garden, where a central pathway leads up to the house. The garden offers an area of lawn, together with seating areas and an ornamental pond flanked by established planting, including a feature tree fern and a stunning border of Camellias. Set in front of the garden is a small bank overlooking and sloping down to the small stream below.
Side access leads round to a gate and into the rear garden, which again offers an area of lawn, together with a lovely, tiled seating/outdoor dining area and log store set under an attractive pergola. There is a further area of terrace adjoining the rear of the house, as well as a greenhouse.
A pergola walkway leads to a wooden gate opening out to a gravel parking area providing off road parking and access to the detached garage, which has been recently fitted with a new roof.
This charming property has been in the same family from when it was originally built in the late 1800’s and is one of the few properties in the close to enjoy views of the stream.
The property is accessed via a wooden door to the rear opening into a small lobby/utility area. From here, doors open either side into a cloakroom and the kitchen/breakfast room, which is fitted with a range of modern units to one side and built-in appliances including an AEG double oven and induction hob. A double aspect bay provides an ideal space for a breakfast table and chairs.
Adjoining the kitchen is a separate dining room with exposed wooden floors and sliding doors opening out onto the rear terrace.
Set off the sitting room is a small study area with a door opening to the side aspect. This room feeds through to a double aspect larger study, from which double doors open out into the cottage garden. Both of the study rooms offer built-in shelving.
A centrally positioned turning stairwell leads up to the first floor landing, which features a skylight window.
The principal bedroom offers a bank of fitted wardrobes and storage cupboards to one side and two front aspect windows offering elevated views across the cottage garden and the stream. Set off this room is an en-suite shower room comprising a shower cubicle, wash basin and wc.
There are two further bedrooms to this level, both of which offer elevated views across the rear aspect. One of these bedrooms also offers built-in wardrobe storage.
The first floor layout is completed by a family bathroom fitted with a modern suite comprising a panelled bath with shower attachment over, wash basin and WC.
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.
