The property is approached via electric gates opening onto a large front drive providing off road parking for numerous vehicles. A paved path leads to the striking front door whilst the front garden offers cottage styled planting with a separate lawned area to the side interspersed with shrubs and flowers.
A side gate provides access to the rear of the property where a path leads around the back of the house and continues down the rear garden. The garden is well established with herbaceous borders but offers a good amount of space and privacy.
The outside space is complemented by numerous outbuildings including a summer house with power, a large garage with door to the side and an extra workshop at the end, again with power offering a great space for a studio or home office.
The property is located in this pretty hamlet, on the edge of the village of Lyndhurst.
The village of Brockenhurst (about 4 miles south) has a mainline rail connection to London Waterloo (journey time approximately 90 minutes).
For the yachtsman, the Georgian market town of Lymington (10 miles) offers a range of sailing facilities and access to the open waters of the Solent, whilst the historic and much famed village of Beaulieu is only 7 miles away.
The M27 (Junction 1) is some 3 miles north of the property, connecting through to the M3 for access to Bournemouth, Southampton and London.
Entering the property through a solid wood front door, a hallway with WC to the side creates a welcoming feel into the oldest part of the property. To the left-hand side is the sitting room benefiting from a dual aspect over the front garden. This room offers scope for a variety of uses such as a study, snug or fourth bedroom. The property offers two further good-sized reception rooms, one currently used as a dining room with open archways leading to a cosy family room. Internal doors and windows flood the room with natural light from the adjacent glass panelled breakfast room and a wood burner stove completes the room.
The kitchen/breakfast room is a striking feature of this property. The glazed elevation to the rear of the property spans the width of the room allowing views over the rear garden and plenty of natural light into the space. The room has been carefully designed to include a kitchen area in the centre comprehensively fitted with wooden shaker style units, wooden worktop, Britannia range cooker with 5 ring gas hob with extractor over, dishwasher and separate pantry style space for a fridge/freezer. Further cupboard space wraps around the internal wall to provide a utility area housing a washing machine, space for tumble drier, boiler, separate ceramic butler’s sink and a side door leading to the garage to the side. The extended part of the kitchen room provides space for a dining room table and offers under floor heating. To the side, stairs descend into a cellar ideal for further storage whilst patio doors lead down to the garden where a terraced area provides an ideal space for alfresco dining.
To the first floor, all the bedrooms are of generous proportions. The master lies to the front of the property and is accessed via the stairs ascending from the hallway. This dual aspect room with panelled ceiling offers a light bright room with views over the front garden and local church beyond. This bedroom benefits from a jack and jill en-suite comprising bath with shower over, sink and WC. Sharing the bathroom is another good-sized double with built in wardrobes and an adjoining door to the rear bedroom. This bedroom enjoys views over the rear garden and further benefits from two built in wardrobes and a separate staircase linking to the kitchen and family room beneath. The first floor is completed by a spacious dual aspect family bathroom with wooden panelled walls, Victorian styled plumbing with separate toilet, roll top bath, separate shower, his and her sink and an airing cupboard to the side.
Living in Lyndhurst
Lyndhurst is nicknamed the capital of the New Forest. This is partly because it is centrally located within the Forest, and partly because it is home to the district council, the Forestry Commission’s district office for South England and the Verderers’ Court (Verderers are the guardians of the Forest’s commoning rights and therefore protectors of the Forest landscape). It is also home to the New Forest Centre with Forest-themed museum, library and gallery.
Its High Street is a busy thoroughfare with numerous tea shops and coffee houses. As a shopping experience it runs the gamut from old-fashioned sweet shop and an award-winning butcher’s, through art gallery and eclectic vintage interiors shop to the Ferrari and Maserati showroom.
Eateries range from popular country inns, such as The Royal Oak at Bank (a hamlet within the parish boundary) and Lime Wood, a hip country house hotel with Good Food Guide recommended restaurant and luxurious spa.
Property is equally varied: from traditional terraced cottages to big country houses. Lyndhurst also appeals to commuters as there are links to major road networks at Ashurst and Cadnam as well as mainline stations at Ashurst and Brockenhurst.
