The property is centrally located in, 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.
The main living accommodation comprises a superb, double aspect family room/study room to the front of the property and a lovely sitting room to the rear. The family room features an ornate fireplace with stone hearth, built-in shelving, storage cupboard and a front aspect window overlooking the garden. The sitting room is open to the family room and features a woodburning stove with Bessemer beam and stone hearth set into a brick chimney recess. Both the sitting room and family room benefit from attractive, laminated flooring, with double doors opening from the sitting room onto the rear terrace. The kitchen/breakfast room is a delightful space running from front to back, with the breakfast area having a glazed roof and double doors leading out to the rear garden. The kitchen area offers a full range of built-in units and granite worksurfaces, with a large gas stove and extractor to its centre. Incorporated within the units is a Butler style sink, American style fridge/freezer, washing machine, dishwasher and wine cooler. A turning stairwell from the sitting room ascends to the first-floor landing, which in turn leads to all bedroom and bathroom accommodation. The principal bedroom suite benefits from a lovely, vaulted ceiling with exposed timber beams, a cast iron fireplace and double doors opening to a Juliet balcony overlooking the rear garden. This bedroom further benefits from a fully tiled, en-suite shower room comprising a shower cubicle, wash basin and WC. There are two additional bedrooms to this level, both of which overlook the front aspect and share a family bathroom with a freestanding bath, wash basin and WC. NB. The property benefits from underfloor heating throughout and a water softener.
A gravel driveway split by a five-bar gate offers ample off-lane parking, with a small courtyard by the main entrance providing even more space if required. Adjacent to the front driveway is an area of lawn garden surrounded by a gravel path, planted borders and attractive picket fencing. Continuing along the side of the property there is a large outbuilding incorporating a workshop and separate storage shed. The rear garden is beautifully landscaped and cleverly apportioned into different areas of interest incorporating an area of level lawn surrounded by planted beds, a vegetable garden set under an attractive pergola and an extensive paved sun terrace providing an ideal space for outdoor dining and entertaining. At the back of the plot there is a useful shed and a gate leading out to a rear driveway providing off road parking for one additional vehicle. This driveway is accessed from Garden Road.
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.
