The property can be accessed via three pedestrian picket gates with further space for two cars in front of the garage. The property’s garden has been meticulously maintained with beautiful borders and carefully selected planting throughout.
Surrounding the property is a terrace accessed from numerous rooms within the property providing elevated views over neighbouring parkland and fields beyond. Steps lead down onto the main rear garden primarily laid to lawn interspersed with herbaceous planting. A greenhouse can be found attached to the double garage. In total, the grounds extend to just over 0.8 acre.
Approaching the property through a solid wood front door, a large hallway with wooden flooring throughout leads to all principal reception rooms. To the side, the original rotunda offers views over the garden as well as a fireplace making it an ideal snug / home office. Double glass doors lead into the principal reception room enjoying a triple aspect outlook as well as featuring an impressive fireplace.
To the other end of the property is a kitchen with wall and base mounted cupboards, sink and cooker and a space for a table. A further door leads through into a walkway with further storage linking the laundry room at the end of the house. The ground floor is completed by a dining room and a downstairs bedroom with en-suite.
Stairs ascend to the first floor where an impressive master bedroom benefits from built in storage and an en-suite. Two further bedrooms are serviced by a jack and jill bathroom comprising bath, WC, sink and window to the side aspect.
Ancillary accommodation is available above the garage with stairs leading up to the first floor to a studio flat with WC, sink and shower and kitchenette area.
We believe the property benefits from its full planning allowance with previous enlargements having taken place in the 1960s and again in 1980.
Park Lodge lies in 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.
There are multiple sailing clubs in nearby Lymington (12 miles) and numerous golf courses throughout the New Forest including one in Burley itself. Brockenhurst (8 miles) boasts a mainline railway station (Waterloo 90 minutes) whilst Ringwood (5 miles) provides coach links to the Captial. 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.
