Believed to have been built in The Edwardian era, the property offers attractive combination of brick, render and tile hung elevations set under a clay tiled roof. The property has previously been enlarged and more recently refurbished, to create a lovely home in line with a modern family lifestyle. The accommodation is arranged over three floors and offers an elegant fusion of character features, together with modern day fittings.
To the front of the property, an open entrance porch with terracotta flooring and pine front door opens into the entrance hallway. From here there are doors to all the principal ground floor living spaces. A stairwell from the hallway ascends to the first floor landing area.
The sitting room offers a comfortable space, with an attractive, square bay window and wood burning stove set into an open fireplace with pine surround and tiled hearth.
Adjacent to the sitting room is the dining room, which shares the open woodburning stove with the sitting room and further benefits from a Sash window looking out to the rear.
The double aspect kitchen/breakfast room is located to the rear of the property and features a modern range of fitted light wood units together with granite worksurfaces and a range of built-in appliances. From the kitchen/breakfast room, double doors open out onto the terrace and rear garden.
Set off the kitchen/breakfast room is a useful utility room with storage units and space and plumbing for a range of appliances. From here a door opens into the side return, which leads to a superb storage area adjoining the utility room, at the front of the house.
To the first floor, a landing area leads to the main bedroom, which is located at the front of the house, with a large window overlooking the front garden. The main bedrooms features natural pine flooring, an impressive walk-in wardrobe and a modern en-suite shower room.

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.
