With an Edwardian feel throughout, Shoot Wood is an inviting property benefiting from high ceilings and well proportioned light spacious rooms. An enclosed porch leads to a welcoming entrance hall leading to all principal reception rooms and a downstairs WC. Two double aspect rooms both with fireplaces are orientated to the front of the property with one currently used as a dining room and the other as a formal living room. A third reception room with fireplace is located towards the rear of the property enjoying views over the garden and patio doors onto the outside terrace. A large kitchen/diner offers plenty of space for cooking, dining and entertaining. The kitchen is comprehensively kitted out with ample storage, kitchen island, AGA, dishwasher, electric hob, oven, microwave and a large bay area housing a good-sized kitchen table. To the end is an area used as a utility area with ceramic butlers sink and space for a washing machine as well as a further room currently used as a study.
Ascending to the first floor via an impressive staircase, a spacious landing leads to all bedrooms and bathrooms with views overlooking the rear garden and land beyond. The master bedroom is a beautifully light room enjoying an easterly elevation with bay window to the side and plenty of built in wardrobes along the side wall. An en-suite complements the space with a freestanding roll top bath, separate shower, WC, sink and airing cupboard housing the hot water tank and boiler. Mirroring the master bedroom is a spacious dual aspect guest suite with feature fireplace and an en-suite comprising shower, WC, sink and towel radiator. The first floor is completed by two further good-sized bedrooms enjoying an outlook over the garden and land beyond. They’re both served by a family bathroom offering a bath with shower over, WC and sink.
Shoot Wood lies about one and a half miles from the centre of, arguably, one of the most beautiful and sought after villages in The New Forest, ideally situated with direct forest access to make full use of all the wonderful facilities the Forest has to offer and providing some of the best horse riding and walking routes. Whether it be sailing at nearby Lymington (12 miles) or golf at one of the many courses in the area including Brockenhurst with its’ mainline railway station (8 miles, Waterloo 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 easily accessible.
Crossing over a cattle grid, a gravel driveway leads to a turning circle around a mature tree to the front of the property whilst a side lane leads down to garaging to the rear. A double garage with studio above (including sink and a separate WC) offers an area for home working for further storage space. The property offers further outbuildings including stabling for 3 horses as well as a further storage room ideal for tack or hay. A large metal sheeted barn also provides cover for machinery or just further storage area. The property includes paddocks, a fenced manege and a separate five bar gate to the side providing direct forest access. The main recreational garden is predominately laid to lawn with mature planting surrounding the boundary and a summerhouse to the side. The garden is particularly private and secluded and further enjoys a westerly orientation. The total land including paddocks and garden equates to approximately 2.75 acres.
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.
