Careys Cottages is a highly regarded unmade road set within the cattle grid with New Forest ponies and donkeys frequently roaming outside the front gate. The location is conveniently situated within a walking distance of the village centre and access to the open forest just yards away off Meerut Road. The village of Brockenhurst offers a good range of local amenities including a butcher, greengrocer and baker, as well as a well-regarded primary school, popular tertiary college, the renowned Brockenhurst Golf Club and an excellent mainline train service to London Waterloo (approximately 90 minutes). The picturesque village of Beaulieu lies 7 miles to the East with the marina of Bucklers Hard on the Beaulieu River. 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 and the south coast.
A front gate opens onto a driveway providing plentiful off road parking and access to the small detached garage/store.
The front garden is bounded by hedging affording privacy from the lane and timber fencing to the side boundaries. It is mainly laid to level lawn with planted beds to the edges. The drive and pathway leads up to the front entrance.
Access either side of the property leads to the rear garden which is laid to level lawn and flanked by timber fence borders. Planted flower beds and ornamental trees offer colour and structure to the easy to maintain pretty garden.
A pedestrian door opens into the garage which provides useful storage or could house a small car.
The property is available for the first time since it was built in the 1960’s. A very traditional layout offers a comfortable configuration of accommodation with the potential to extend further, subject to planning.
The layout comprises a central entrance hall which provides access to all accommodation, an airing cupboard houses the water tank.
A double aspect sitting room features an electric fireplace and is set with large windows with front aspects over the garden and French doors open out in turn onto the rear garden.
Adjoining the sitting room is a kitchen which again opens out onto the rear garden via a part glazed door with coordinating windows overlooking the garden. The kitchen is fitted with a range of wall and base units and built-in appliances including an electric hob, double oven and dishwasher. A useful cupboard houses plumbing for a washing machine.
The master bedroom is set at the front of the property and features a large window overlooking the front aspect and has plenty of space for wardrobes and bedroom furniture.
The family bathroom is adjoining and offers a 3 piece suite with panelled bath and shower fittings, wash hand basin and WC.
The layout is completed by a guest bedroom overlooking the rear garden which is currently used as another comfortable TV room.
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.
