Queens Road is a highly sought after location on the edge of the village of Lyndhurst and within a short walk of the open forest. The town of Lyndhurst offers a diverse range of general and specialist shops, together with a popular primary school, historic church and visitor centre.
The neighbouring village of Brockenhurst offers additional facilities and a mainline rail connection to London/Waterloo (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) at nearby Cadnam affords easy access to both Bournemouth, Southampton, Salisbury and the M3 Motorway network.
THE LOCAL AREA
Lyndhurst has been known as the capital of The New Forest since William the Conqueror established it as a royal hunting ground in 1079, with Kings and Queens staying at the Royal Manor throughout the centuries.
Lyndhurst is also home to the Forestry Commission and the Verderers’ Court (Verderers are the guardians of the forest’s rights and therefore protectors of the forest landscape).
The delightful High Street offers an eclectic mix of boutique shops and everyday stores including an old-fashioned sweet shop and award-winning butchers, as well as an art gallery, a vintage interiors shop and a Ferrari and Maserati showroom.
There are numerous places to eat out, ranging from popular country inns, such as The Royal Oak at Bank (a hamlet within the parish boundary) to Lime Wood, a country house hotel with a highly regarded restaurant and luxurious spa.
Property is equally varied, from traditional terraced cottages to large 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.
Towering over the skyline is the pre-Raphaelite church of St Michael and All Angels where the grave of former Lyndhurst resident Alice Liddell, Lewis Carroll’s inspiration for Alice in Wonderland, can be found.
The property offers an attractive brick and tile hung façade depicting the period and flexible, well-proportioned accommodation offering an elegant fusion of modern fittings and character features such as high ceilings, ornate cornicing, open fireplaces, some original leaded and stained glass windows and a beautiful hardwood staircase to all floors.
A solid wood oversized front door opens into a tiled entrance lobby which links via another solid wood door to the main entrance hall, with side aspect window and ornamental fireplace.
From the main entrance hall, a grand staircase ascends to the upper levels, with a door opening into a good size study with ornamental fireplace and double doors opening into an inner hallway.
Set off the inner hallway is a stunning sitting room with and large bay window and an imposing dining room with large front aspect window. Both rooms also feature attractive ornamental fireplaces and enjoy views across to the forest.
The kitchen/breakfast room is fitted to three sides with a range of wall and base units and includes a dishwasher, fitted grill and Range cooker set into a tiled recess.
From here, steps lead down into a large self-contained area comprising a double aspect lounge with sliding doors opening out onto the private garden and the main bedroom with walk-in wardrobe and en-suite bathroom. Further rooms to this level include a laundry room, pantry and an additional shower room. This area of the house also enjoys its own separate access from the private garden area.
To the first floor, a landing area with store cupboard links to four double bedrooms, all of which enjoy private en-suite shower room facilities.
To the second floor, a small area of landing with linen store links to two additional double bedrooms, one of which enjoys stunning elevated views to the open forest to the rear. Both second floor bedrooms also enjoy private en-suite shower room facilities.
