Warnes Lane 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 both easily accessible.
Upon entering the property is a welcoming entrance hall, hosting the stairway which leads to the first floor and provides access to a good-sized family bathroom comprising a low level WC, hand wash basin and fitted bath with an overhead shower. The kitchen/dining room was extended in 2015, creating a wonderful bright and airy room with a vaulted roof and two sets of glass doors leading to the orangery and rear garden. The kitchen is fully fitted with base and wall storage, space and plumbing for kitchen appliances, space for a double oven and breakfast bar. The sitting room is of a good size with double aspect views, a brick-built fireplace and an additional set of double doors leading to the orangery. The orangery features an array of windows and double doors leading to the rear garden and beyond.
The first floor offers three generous bedrooms, two of which are double bedrooms and both benefit from a double aspect, providing an abundance of natural light. Bedroom 2 and 3 have the additional benefit of built-in cupboards. The bedrooms are serviced by the shower room, which comprises a walk-in shower cubical, low-level WC and hand wash basin.
Agents Note: There is the potential to extend into the loft space to create an additional bedroom (subject to planning permission).
GROUNDS & GARDENS
To the front of the property is a lawned area, with a pathway leading to the front door, interspersed with mature shrubbery and enclosed by a picket fence and gate. To the side of the property is a shingle driveway providing off-road parking for several vehicles and access to the detached garage. There is also a side gate providing access to the rear garden.
The rear garden is predominantly laid to lawn, with the addition of a pleasant terraced area which would be ideal for alfresco dining. To the rear of the garden is a hard standing area which could be used as an additional parking space as there are double gates leading onto Honey Lane.
The garden is also host to a timber garden shed and a generously sized outbuildings which is currently used as a music studio but would also be an ideal home office.

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.
