GROUNDS & GARDENS
The property is accessed via double gates opening across a cattle grid onto the driveway, with an accompanying pedestrian gate adjacent. The driveway provides off road parking for multiple vehicles and access to the detached double garage, featuring a storeroom which could provide accommodation when accessed by an external stairwell. Set behind the garage are a couple of useful timber sheds.
The grounds associated with the property extend to approximately three quarters of an acre, with the majority of the gardens enjoying a southerly aspect and sunny orientation.
Adjoining and extending across the property’s southerly elevation is a paved seating terrace within which is situated a heated swimming pool.
Set in front of the terraced area is a large expanse of lawn interspersed with a variety of ornamental trees and shrubs including spectacular rhododendrons, camellias, magnolia and azaleas, which ensure all year-round colour and interest. At the end of the lawn is an attractive ornamental pond and water feature set against a backdrop of mature planting.
Located behind the house is an additional area of lawn garden incorporating raised beds and a small kitchen garden area.
The boundaries to the property are well defined by established hedge and fence borders, affording the occupants a high degree of privacy and seclusion.

The property benefits from additional gated access off Pikes Hill Avenue leading to a separate parking area and a large, detached outbuilding comprising a double and single stable, as well as a tack room and hay loft. This excellent outbuilding offers the potential for conversion for a number of uses (subject to necessary planning consents being granted).

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.
