There is an off road parking area for two vehicles to the front of the property, access around the side of the house to the private terrace where the grounds continue around to the rear garden. The garden is laid to lawn and a large wooden store is positioned to the far end.
Princes Crescent is a highly sought after location on the edge of the village of Lyndhurst and within a short walk of the open forest. The village 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). Located in this quiet backwater, 10 Princes Crescent is situated within a short walk of the open New Forest. The M27 (Junction 1) at nearby Cadnam affords easy access to both Bournemouth, Southampton, Salisbury and the M3 Motorway network.
The hallway has a beautiful light Porcelanosa tiled floor which extends passing the dining room and into the kitchen and music room. The sitting room has an attractive bay window and ornate fireplace and is positioned to the front of the house. The dining room has a log burning stove and is open to the inner hallway where the original staircase rises to the first floor.
The design & built kitchen is a feature of note, flooded with light having two full length windows overlooking the side terrace and a door to the terrace and garden. There is a large central island and the whole is fitted with two shades of white satin gloss storage cupboards with lightly marbled-quartz work surfaces above. Of particular note is the Villeroy & Boch sink, Hans Grohe tap and Laura Ashley handles. There is an integral dishwasher and space for a fridge/freezer and washing machine as well as a range style cooker which sits within an alcove.
The kitchen opens to the music room/study where there are windows and velux roof units making this a lovely light space and where steps lead into the large conservatory with a fitted dresser and doors to the garden.
The first floor comprises the principal bedroom suite with stunning shower room and bay window to the front aspect. There are two further bedrooms and a family bathroom to this level and then the staircase rises again to two further bedrooms.
Agents Note: The property is double-glazed throughout. The front bays, dining room and kitchen are Hard-Wood, bespoke made to match the original designs.
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.
