A welcoming porch opens into what is currently the village store but would potentially be a very spacious living room overlooking the open forest. There is an inner hallway behind which leads through to the existing living room with fireplace and on through to the fitted kitchen/dining room overlooking the rear garden. The kitchen is well appointed with a range of fitted cupboards and work surfaces, a range style cooker, space for fridge freezer and plumbing for washing machine & dishwasher. Adjacent to the living room is a cloakroom, utility room, study, rear access to the garden and parking and stairs leading to the first floor landing.
The master bedroom overlooks the open forest with the potential to create a Juliette balcony or roof terrace, subject to relevant planning permission. Bedroom two is a spacious room with side aspect. Bedroom three and four are both doubles with the family bathroom suite completing the accommodation and comprising panelled bath, separate shower cubicle, wash hand basin and wc.
The house is positioned fronting the main street with fabulous views of the open forest and heathland. There are donkeys and horses regularly on the doorstep. The rear garden has been landscaped with a brick patio, mature plantings, fence borders and a range of flowers, bushes and hedges providing ample privacy. There is a gravelled drive running down the side of the property which leads to the store room and private parking for two vehicles.
Living in Beaulieu
Beaulieu, as its name suggests, is beautiful. This village is a jewel of the New Forest, sitting prettily beside the River Beaulieu with Palace House, the seat of the Montagu family, as backdrop. This is an estate village which has been in the keeping of the Montagu family for 477 years. Today Beaulieu is familiar worldwide for the National Motor Museum, but the village attracts visitors, too. It has a quaint High Street of smart independents in pretty brick and timber-framed period properties, including art gallery, chocolate studio, floral designer, plus gift shops, tea room, village stores, garden centre, community garden and the village school (rated ‘good’ by Ofsted).
Beaulieu is also home to Beaulieu Garage (specialising in classic and vintage cars) and Terrace Restaurant at the Montagu Arms, the only restaurant in the New Forest to hold a Michelin Star. Along the road towards picturesque Hatchet Pond is Beaulieu Organic Farm Shop.
As for property, there are some good-sized period country houses, while Dock Lane, which runs alongside the river, is considered one of the most prestigious addresses in the Forest with a selection of stunning architect-designed modern builds.
