Outbuildings & Large Barn
Adjoining the property and formed around an inner courtyard is a delightful single storey one bedroom cottage comprising a sitting room, kitchenette, bedroom and bathroom. The cottage offers options for guest accommodation, income potential or redevelopment, subject to planning.
Outbuildings & Large Barn:
Set off the driveway are a number of outbuildings comprising a stable/boot room, stable/tack room, shower room and changing facilities for the outdoor pool and guests.
NB: From the driveway, a further five bar gate opens onto a short track leading to a large area where planning permission has been granted for the erection of a substantial car/boat barn measuring approximately 10.2 m x 9. 2m. The barn would feature a vaulted ceiling and would be capable of housing multiple vehicles, ribs or a boat.
Grounds & Gardens:
The property is located off a private track and accessed via large electric gates which open onto a gravel driveway with turning circle and an additional parking area set to the side with a double brick built open garage. Set off the turning circle is a double garage.
Extending across the rear elevation of the property is a paved sun terrace enjoying a lovely southerly aspect and direct views across the gardens and paddocks.
The rear garden enjoys a lovely southerly aspect and is mainly laid to lawn, interspersed with beautiful specimen plants and mature trees. The garden wraps around to the side of the property to a wonderful little haven where a beautiful weeping willow tree and a barbeque/seating area form around a swimming pool to create a perfect space for entertaining or relaxation with the benefit of a rather lovely shepherds hut.
Set to the rear of the gardens there are two paddocks which benefit from a water supply and separate access to the road and bridle way.
The eastern boundary of the grounds adjoins and offers magnificent far reaching views across Setley enclosure and the new forest.
To the front aspect is a large field flanked by established tree and hedge borders providing an attractive focal point and offering options for various usages.
In total, the stunning and completely private grounds extend to approximately 7 acres and are surrounded all sides by open forest.
We understand the property also benefits from forest rights and is available with no onward chain.
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.
