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.

Built circa 1890, this beautiful family home offers an elegant façade of brick elevations and attractive timber double glazed windows with an attractive porch and bay windows.

Internally, the accommodation is set across two floors and provides well-proportioned living and bedroom spaces throughout, extending to approximately 1574 square feet.

There are many character features befitting the period including stripped wooden floorboards and doors, high ceilings, skirting boards and some cast iron period style radiators.

The entrance porch leads into a hallway which provides access to the ground floor reception rooms with a sitting room set on the right hand side with wood burner as a focal point and large box bay windows overlooking the front garden.

A second reception room at the front of the house, currently used as a study/playroom, is set across the hall and again benefits from a central wood burner and built in storage.

A cloakroom is located under the stairs and at the end of the hall a door leads through into a superb extended family kitchen/dining room with large bifolding doors which lead directly out to the rear garden.

The sitting area is arranged around an attractive large feature fireplace with exposed brick chimney breast with an inset wood burner. Grey slate tiled flooring leads through to the kitchen area which is fitted with elegant modern shaker style units and complimentary quartz work surfaces and upstands. The kitchen is fitted with an extensive range of units with glass fronted display wall units and space for a range cooker and large fridge/ freezer. Integrated appliances include a dishwasher and microwave. A wooden breakfast bar is set at the end of the useful kitchen island. Three large skylights are set into the vaulted ceiling over the kitchen area along with extensive glazing with aspects across the rear garden, affording lots of natural light.

A useful utility room is set off the kitchen providing additional floor to ceiling storage and a door from the kitchen leads out to the side.

The first floor accommodation offers four double bedrooms, one ensuite and a superb refitted family bathroom finished in period styling. The principal bedroom is set at the rear of the property with dual aspects across the rear garden and benefiting from a stylish ensuite shower room. There are two bedrooms set at the front of the property, both with built in wardrobes, and a further bedroom set to the rear.

The property is approached via an attractive herringbone paved path with lawned areas set either side and screened with mature hedging to the front and planted borders. A large gravelled area to the front and side provide off street parking for several cars.

A wrought iron gate leads through to the side of the property, a covered storm porch is set over a side door into the kitchen.

The newly laid paved side area provides a private seating area and houses a wood store. The path extends around to the rear of the property and a further terraced area with built in BBQ area, ideal for entertaining, abuts the rear of the property with direct access from the family kitchen.

A low brick wall with a single step leads up to a level lawn. The secure garden is enclosed by lapwood fencing and is planted with a selection of shrubs to the boundaries and benefits from a useful wooden storage shed.

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.
