The original cottage, dating back to the early 1800’s, has been subject to a sympathetic programme of extension in the 1980’s and now provides comfortable and generously proportioned accommodation. The property would now benefit from some updating and modernisation and offers a buyer a number of options to suit individual requirements. Many of the character features remain including open fireplaces, exposed brick and wooden beams and timber framed sash windows.

The entrance hallway leads into the family room with log burning stove and double doors into the study with vaulted ceiling, exposed beams and a door out to the side garden. On the opposite side of the hallway, a cosy lounge with a feature open fireplace which in turn opens up into the sitting room. An impressive bay window looks out onto the gardens and along with the large sash window to the front aspect, creates a light and airy room.

Accessed from both the hallway and the sitting room, the generously proportioned dining room is a real feature of the home featuring a double aspect and French doors onto the patio.

The split level farmhouse style kitchen comprises a range of country style units with complimentary worksurfaces, a gas Aga, range of integrated appliances and tiled flooring. There is then a useful rear porch/boot room off of the kitchen onto the rear patio. A utility room with space and plumbing for both a washing machine and tumble dryer is situated to the back of the kitchen.

To the very rear of the property is a snug with brick window seat, bay window and a mezzanine currently utilised as an additional bedroom.

The first floor accommodation comprises three good sized double bedrooms, the principal room benefitting from a walk through dressing area and en suite bathroom. A further family bathroom is situated off the landing. The balcony area can be accessed from the landing and provides extensive views to the south over the adjacent parkland.

Agents Note: 

The cottage enjoys Forest Rights of Cordage – 1 Cord of Wood per annum. (A standard, full cord of wood is a volume of 128 cubic feet, measured as a pile 8 feet long, 4 feet high and 4 feet wide).

The current owners have made us aware that there is a parcel of 7 acres of paddock land with a field shelter available for sale under separate ownership and by further negotiation. The land is positioned near to the rear boundary of Reynolds Cottage on the opposite side of the track that leads to Boldre Church. For those looking for an equestrian opportunity, this would be a particularly good arrangement allowing the ability to ride out along the track to Roydon Woods and out to the open forest.

The approach is particularly attractive with a circular driveway providing ample parking. The gardens wrap around the side of the property, primarily laid to lawn with mature planting and established trees. An area of patio offers a lovely space for dining and entertaining or enjoying the wildlife.

A double length brick car port is situated to the back of the garden alongside a 5 bar gate giving vehicular access out onto the gravel track. There is also a small orchard, pond and a selection of sheds.

The property is located on Mill Lane and is within walking distance of Brockenhurst village centre which offers a mainline railway station with direct links to London Waterloo (approximately 90 minutes) and a good local community of shops and restaurants. Approximately 4 miles to the south is the Georgian market town of Lymington with its extensive yachting facilities, famous Saturday market and 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 giving 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.
