The property enjoys a tucked away position on The Rise set opposite the newly completed luxury Holmwood Apartments, in the very heart of Brockenhurst village. The local amenities and open forest are moments away, whilst the mainline rail station (London Waterloo approx. 90 mins) is also within easy reach.
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.
The picturesque village of Beaulieu lies 7 miles to the East with the marina of Bucklers Hard on the Beaulieu River.
To the North is the village of Lyndhurst and Junction 1 of the M27 motorway which links to the M3, giving access to London.
To the front aspect, a cattle grid and accompanying pedestrian gate leads onto the drive which provides off road parking for multiple vehicles and access to a newly built attractive clad garage complex with single garaging and coordinating carport. A separate entrance provides access to The Lodge and private decking areas.
The block paving continues round to the left hand side of the house where a curved rendered wall naturally leads to the entrance into the main house and a separate gate leads to the back of the house and large garden storage.
The attractive rear garden is predominantly laid to level lawn, screened with mature trees to the rear with a children’s soft play area to the far end of the plot and small woodstore. Adjoining the property is a paved seating terrace providing an ideal space for outdoor dining and entertaining.
Believed to have been constructed circa 1969, the main residence offers modern contrasting black timber cladding and white rendered elevations set under a tiled roof.
To the front aspect, a rendered curved wall leads to the main entrance with glazed front door opening into an attractive entrance lobby, with tiled flooring and built in cloaks cupboard. This in turn opens, via glazed doors, into the main entrance hall with painted hardwood strip flooring and feature open tread staircase leading up to the first floor.
The magnificent, triple aspect kitchen/living/dining room extends the full width of the property to the rear, wrapping around a central fireplace with extensive glazing making the area very light and airy. The kitchen area features a range of fitted units, breakfast bar and coordinating worksurfaces. Built-in appliances include a double oven, microwave, gas hob and dishwasher. Leading off the kitchen there is access to the side garden with scope to incorporate a utility area. The kitchen opens in turn into the dining area with aspects over the rear garden and leads round to the living area which features an open fireplace. Sliding doors open out onto the garden terrace and a further door takes you back into the rear of the hallway and into the family room. There is still considerable potential to develop the rear of the property and create a larger open plan space befitting modern day living with bifolding doors for which planning has already been permitted.
The spacious vaulted family room offers a comfortable bright space, currently used as a study and family room, with windows overlooking the rear garden and doors leading onto the terrace. A further door leads to the front of the property providing separate access if required.

A contemporary cloakroom with wash basin and WC completes the ground floor layout.
The first floor landing offers built in storage cupboards, large floor to ceiling picture windows with side aspect and painted floorboards providing a clean Scandinavian feel.
The principle bedroom enjoys large full height glazing again to the side aspect and features a full length walk in wardrobe with extensive storage and hanging rails.
