At the end of a very pretty winding gravel track passing through the famous golf course, the property is approximately one mile from the heart of this popular bustling village in the heart of the new forest between Lyndhurst and the Georgian town of Lymington. The village has a mainline railway station with direct links to London Waterloo in approximately 90 minutes and an excellent local community of shops and restaurants. The Georgian coastal town of Lymington is only 4 miles to the south with its famous Saturday country market, world renowned yachting facilities and ferry service to the Isle of Wight. The village of Lyndhurst to the north leads to Junction 1 of the M27 motorway which links to the M3, giving access to London.
The welcoming reception hallway with attractive wooden turning staircase is from where the principal living areas are accessed. The drawing room is impressive in its size and fitted with an integral surround sound system and multi-media suite, including a cinema screen discreetly stored in the ceiling. There is a stone fireplace and glazed bi-folding doors lead to the garden terrace and the beautiful grounds.
The contemporary kitchen/dining room is well designed having a bar complete with a Sub Zero wine cooler and display cupboards as well as a coffee station with integral Miele coffee machine. The dining area is positioned in front of a wall of glazed doors which open to the gardens and provide an ideal space for alfresco entertaining. The kitchen has large glass topped work surfaces by Lechner and a peninsular incorporating Sub Zero Wolf appliances to include a hob and steamer. There are two Sub Zero Wolf eye-level ovens and combination Miele microwave as well as two “draw” dishwashers and a large American style double fronted fridge/freezer. The whole room is designed as a light living space with ample storage provision. The adjacent utility room has ample fitted cupboards and ideal for all laundry requirements. Completing the ground floor is another generous family snug and a well-appointed cloakroom.
The first floor landing incorporates a wonderful library/reading area with windows to triple aspects overlooking the greens of the golf course and beyond to the New Forest. The principal bedroom suite occupies one wing of the house with a large dressing room and separate en suite bathroom including a large bath and separate shower.
There is a further guest suite with en suite shower room and two double bedrooms, served by the family shower room. One of the bedrooms is currently fitted with a range of office furniture and utilised as a first floor study.

Arguably, one of the most spectacular private settings for a property from where to enjoy complete peace and tranquillity being positioned in the middle of the Brokenhurst Manor Golf Club course, yet retaining its privacy from the surrounding course. Accessed via a gravel track which passes the ponds and fairways of this famous club. The five-bar wooden electric entrance gate leads to a large private gravel driveway with parking provision for many cars, boats, campers etc.
There is a detached double garage with a 2.25m deep wine cellar by Spiral Cellars, a pretty Hartley Botanical greenhouse, timber summer house and parkland style grounds. The gardens, which extend to around one acre are mainly lawn with boundaries of mature trees and shrubs and a private gate leading to the open forest. Historically, in the 1970’s there was an outdoor swimming pool to the south side of the house possibly giving the opportunity to rebuild, if required.
