Northerwood House is a magnificent Georgian mansion house set at the end of a long private driveway on the edge of the village of Lyndhurst. The property is attributed to Nash the architect and was formally the home of the New Forest District Council before being skilfully converted by Ashby Renovations to provide a unique development of just seventeen luxury apartments in an elevated and secluded location. This beautiful apartment offers features in keeping with the original building such as high ceilings and skirting boards and a wonderful sense of space and light throughout. Unusually, there is also a good degree of storage for a property of this type.

The grounds extend in total to approximately 6 acres. The property further benefits from a double garage situated in an adjacent block which is accessed off the principal drive.

Northerwood House is situated in highly the sought-after area of Swan Green on the edge of the village of Lyndhurst and is located only a short walk from the pubs, tearooms, shops and amenities of Lyndhurst village, and the open Forest with its many walks and outdoor pursuits. The village of Brockenhurst (about 4 miles south) has a mainline rail connection to London Waterloo (journey time approximately 90 minutes). The M27 (Junction 1) is some 3 miles north of the property, connecting through to the M3 at Chilworth for access to London.

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.
