The entrance leads you into a hallway from where the majority of the ground floor accommodation can be accessed including a ground floor shower room. Further along the hall a door leads into a large living/dining room with double aspect views and feature fireplace.
At the rear of the property a fitted kitchen with large window allows for ample natural light. A lobby sits beyond the kitchen with access to the gardens and into a W/C and utility room beyond.
Stairs from the main hallway lead to the first floor landing where there are three double bedrooms. The principle bedroom offers double aspect views across the garden and open forest beyond and offers a good size built in wardrobe and vanity unit. The two further bedrooms provide bright and airy accommodation with bedroom three offering further built in wardrobes.
Aldridge Hill is situated at the western end of Brockenhurst between Rhinefield and Black Knoll, directly opposite the open forest and close to the much famed Rhinefield Ornamental Drive. The location is arguably one of the finest in Brockenhurst, with the village offering a mainline railway station with direct links to London Waterloo (approx. 90 minutes), a well-regarded primary school and tertiary college and a good local community of shops and restaurants.
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, its famous Saturday county 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.
A small gravel track off the forest lane leads to the entrance of the property which sits centrally in just under a third of an acre plot. The garden is mostly laid to lawn and is entered via a gated entrance with detached garage at the front. A separate pedestrian gate allows for access straight onto the open heathland at Aldridge Hill.
The boundary of the property is mostly flanked by hedgerow and picket fencing with an array of hedging and shrubs nestled through the garden allowing for a very tranquil and private setting.
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.
