Beech Copse lies about 1 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 golf at one of the many courses in the area including Brockenhurst with its mainline railway station (8 miles, Waterloo 90 mins.) 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.
Originally constructed in 1986, the current Vendors have undertaken an extensive programme of improvements in recent years to include a rear orangery extension and loft conversion. The spacious reception hall has a turning staircase to the first floor, a cloakroom and gives access to all principle rooms, with the dual aspect study/family room overlooking the front aspect of the property. The sitting room has a window to the front and also opens out into the orangery to the rear with a central fireplace housing the Woodwarm logburner.
The kitchen has been well planned and fitted with a wide variety of high and low level units with white granite worktops, a central island unit and serving promontory. Many appliances have been incorporated including Neff microwave and coffee machine, wine fridge, Rangemaster cooker with 5 ring gas hob, butler style sink, dishwasher, preparation sink with instant hot water tap and built in fridge and freezer. This opens through to the orangery which gives ample relaxed dining space and has a lantern roof double doors to the rear terrace and bi-fold doors from the dining area. Adjacent to the kitchen is the utility room which has a door to the side and a range of high and low level units, butler style sink and space for domestic appliances. Both areas also benefit from underfloor heating.
The first floor landing has a large walk-in airing cupboard with access to the boarded loft space and windows to both sides. The master bedroom has an extensive range of built-in furniture and a large modern fitted ensuite shower room. There are three further bedrooms all with ensuite facilities on this floor and a staircase leads to the second floor where there is a further large double bedroom with extensive eaves storage and an adjacent storage room.
Outside there is a large detached annexe incorporating an L shaped sitting/dining room with fitted kitchen facilities, double bedroom and modern fitted ensuite shower room.
The property is approached via an electrically operated five-bar gate which leads to a shingle driveway bordered by an area of lawn and mature plant and shrub borders. This continues along one side of the property and gives ample off-road parking for several vehicle if required. In addition there is a separate pedestrian gate.
Immediately to the rear is a paved terrace area with surrounding raised beds and rockery, beyond which is an expanse of lawn interspersed and surrounded by a mixture of mature plant and shrub borders and trees.
To the far end of the garden is a wisteria covered pergola, a vegetable garden with raised beds, a large garden shed with power, a further storage shed and wood shed.
Immediately opposite the property is the open forest.
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.
