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.
Just moments from the property, there is a wooded shortcut giving access to Burley village via the scenic Burley Golf Course and the village cricket pitch. Overall, this charming trail gives convenient access to the village amenities in no less than 10 minutes on foot.
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 property is accessed through a covered porch leading to the welcoming entrance hall, featuring tiled flooring and stairs ascending to the first-floor accommodation. To the front of the property is a cosy sitting room with a bay window offering a pleasant view and a feature fireplace housing an inset log burner. Adjacent to this is a spacious reception room, currently used as a family room.
Spanning the entire rear width of the property, the open-plan kitchen/dining room enjoys a delightful sunny aspect overlooking the rear gardens. The fully fitted country-style kitchen comprises a wide range of base, wall and drawer units with worktops over, a cooker with a gas hob and extractor, and additional space for freestanding appliances. A rear door opens onto the expansive patio area, perfect for alfresco dining.
The principal bedroom suite is a generously sized double room with views of the rear garden and neighbouring paddocks. It offers ample space for wardrobes and a dressing table. The large en-suite shower room includes a double-sized walk-in shower unit, WC, and washbasin.
There are two additional double bedrooms with built-in storage and a single room that could be utilised as a study. A three-piece family bathroom suite completes the upstairs accommodation.
Agents Note: The property has undergone a programme of refurbishment during the current ownership, including brand new, double glazed Evolution windows fitted throughout.
GROUNDS & GARDENS
The property sits almost centrally within its plot, allowing for a great feel of privacy and seclusion, whilst being able to enjoy its own grounds that wrap around. The property is flanked by a cattle grid, leading to a gravel driveway with ample space for parking, along with a detached single garage. Side access along both sides of the cottage leads to the rear garden, primarily laid to lawn with established planting and mature hedging to both side boundaries. A paved patio area at the back of the house is ideal for dining and entertaining. Rear fencing abuts neighbouring paddocks, providing pleasant views, and a shed situated in the corner completes the garden.
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.
