GROUNDS & GARDENS
The property sits almost centrally within its plot, which is approaching half an acre. The driveway is accessed via a five-bar gate and cattle grid, leading to the generous off-road parking area to the front and side of the property.
The beautifully maintained lawned gardens wrap around the property to the westerly and southerly aspects of the property. Bordered by mature trees, hedges and shrubs offering privacy and seclusion.
A large area of patio, only laid in recent years, runs along the whole rear area of the property, an ideal area for alfresco dining. The outside area also benefits from a shed, greenhouse and access around both sides of the property.
Glazed double doors give access into the entrance hallway, which incorporates a cloaks cupboard and leads to the remaining accommodation. A double aspect sitting room with feature integral gas fire, opens into the spacious dining area with French doors leading out to the rear covered decking with additional seating, creating a wonderful space for entertaining.
The kitchen, extended by the current occupiers, can be accessed from both the hallway and the dining area through an archway. The kitchen incorporates a range of country style base and wall units with laminated wood effect worktops over, integrated fridge/freezer, dishwasher and range-style gas cooker.
To the other side of the property lies three double bedrooms, a family shower room, study area and access into the integral garage. The master bedroom suite enjoys a lovely rear aspect, ample built-in wardrobe space and generously sized ensuite shower room with utilities cupboard which currently houses the washing machine and tumble dryer. Both other double bedrooms are of good sizes, one of which also benefits from built-in wardrobe and cupboard space.
The property lies approximately 1/4 mile from the centre of, arguably, one of the most beautiful and sought after villages in The New Forest, ideally situated to make full use of all the wonderful facilities the Forest has to offer. Whether it be sailing at nearby Lymington (12 miles) or a round of golf at Burley Golf Club. There is a mainline railway station at Brockenhurst, offering a direct route to London Waterloo in approximately 90 minutes. The market town of Ringwood is but a short drive away (5 miles). The larger shopping towns of Southampton (20 miles) to the east and Bournemouth (16 miles) to the west, both with their airports are both easily accessible.
Living in Burley
The first Spencers New Forest office was established here in Burley, a honeypot village that feels untouched by time with its traditional cafes, cider farm, gift shops and tales of old smuggling routes, witches and dragons.
This is the New Forest on holiday as imagined by visitors: quaint and old-fashioned with ponies wandering down the high street. In Burley there’s a perpetual feeling of having escaped, that you are away from it all, especially as it is tucked in the lee of wooded slopes.
In fact Burley has easy access to the A31 (across heathland with spectacular views) and routes west to Bournemouth and east to Southampton, while the mainline station at Brockenhurst is only a short drive away across the Forest.
There’s a lovely sense of community in Burley and it is noticeable that once people move here many are reluctant to move out of the area. A range of activities to enjoy locally includes cycling, horse riding, coarse fishing and Burley Golf Club with a nine-hole heathland course.
The property market is dominated by picturesque thatched cottages and large country homes that feel discreetly hidden away, many with access to open Forest.
