White Gables is an elegant and substantial residence which has been a much-loved family home for the last 22 years.
The property features attractive red brick elevations quoined with coloured brickwork and Sash windows set under a tile hung roof.
The internal space is both light and spacious, being set across two floors with many original features, including high ceilings, cornicing, corbels, and high skirting boards.
A covered entrance porch opens via a solid wood entrance door with stained glass inserts into a welcoming reception hall with a feature fireplace set between two front aspect windows.
The reception hall then opens into an inner hallway with built-in storage cupboards which in turn links to the principal ground floor living spaces and first floor via an attractive turning stairwell.
The beautiful double aspect sitting room features an open fireplace set between two windows overlooking the garden, as well as a full size bay window with double doors opening onto the veranda.
Adjoining the dining room is a good size dining room, which again features a fireplace set between two rear aspect windows overlooking the garden.
The double aspect kitchen enjoys views to the front and side aspect and features a range of fitted wall and base and built-in appliances, as well as built-in storage cupboards. From here a door opens into a double aspect breakfast room, which overlooks the garden and links to the utility room, where doors open either side out onto the grounds.
Further rooms to the ground floor include a double aspect study with views to the front and side and a cloakroom.
From the hallway, a beautiful feature staircase with polished wood balustrades and carved spindles rises to the first floor landing area.
The impressive principal bedroom features a full size side aspect bay window, built-in wardrobes and a feature fireplace set between windows offering elevated views across the rear garden and adjoining fields. This bedroom also enjoys an en-suite shower room with shower cubicle, wash basin and WC.
There are three further bedrooms to this level, two of which benefit from built-in wardrobes and the other, a feature fireplace. All of the bedrooms enjoy elevated views across different aspects of the property and are served by a family bathroom comprising a panelled bath, wash basin and WC.
The detached annexe is set alongside the property and features a large double aspect reception room and an adjoining kitchen area. From the reception room, a stairwell ascends to a small landing area linking to a double aspect bedroom one side and a shower room to the other.
Adjoining the ground floor of the annexe are three large storage areas offering options for a number of uses (subject to the relevant consents being granted).
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.
GROUNDS & GARDENS
The property is approached via an entrance set between high hedgerows, which opens onto a driveway formed around a stunning, central Acer tree. The driveway provides off road parking facilities for several vehicles, as well as access to the double garage and addition parking between the main house and annexe.
The grounds extend round the side of the property to the beautiful rear garden, which is predominantly laid to level lawn with planted borders.
A paved terrace extends across the back of the house and down the side of the garden to a separate walled courtyard set behind the annexe and storage areas.
The property also enjoys a delightful westerly aspect for the evening sun and stunning views to the rear across the neighbouring fields.
In total, the gardens and grounds associated with the property extend to just over one third of an acre.

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.
