The house sits on the very edge of the popular village of Everton which has an active community and numerous facilities including a community shop and very good pub. Lymington is approximately 2 miles to the east with the seaside village of Milford on Sea just 1.5 miles to the south. All coastal activities and pursuits are catered for and most day to day items can be found in Lymington or Milford’s many shops. There are superb restaurants and bars in both centres and nearby Brockenhurst station provides direct trains to London Waterloo in approximately 1h 30m.
The house is approached through electrically operated gates and there is ample private parking for four cars in front of the house with room for a further car in the single garage which has an electric up and over door and boarded loft ideal for storage. To the front of the garage is an electric car charging point. The gardens lie predominantly to the rear of the house with a beautiful flagstone terrace separating the house itself from the lawn garden that is interspersed with mature flower beds.

Living in Milford on Sea
Milford on Sea is currently a property hot spot. It is one of the last remaining seaside villages in Hampshire and is delightfully picturesque with a proper village green at its centre. This green is often the focus for popular village events such as maypole dancing and the annual food festival and is fringed by a range of independents (including antiques shops, butcher’s, chemists and greengrocer’s). Recently Milford has developed something of a reputation as a foodie destination with its collection of tea rooms, bistros, wine bar, fish and chips and specialist fish restaurant, plus more.
This is a vibrant village with a friendly and lively community, and appeals to both young families (the primary school has been rated ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted) and older couples looking for somewhere on the coast to relax. The old-fashioned seafront stretches from Hurst spit and Keyhaven nature reserve in the east towards Christchurch Harbour to the west, and enjoys lovely views across the Solent to the Isle of Wight and the Needles.
A good mix of properties includes striking contemporary seafront homes and cliff top apartments with big sea views, quaint terraced old fishermen’s cottages and some substantial 1920s and 1930s Ravenscroft arts and crafts influenced homes in and around Barnes Lane.
