A generous entrance hallway positioned to the side of the house has a quarry tiled floor and turning staircase to the first floor accommodation.

An archway leads to the kitchen with ample storage provision and space for appliances. There is a large window overlooking the pretty lane above the kitchen sink.

The open plan living rooms are accessed from the kitchen. There have been walls removed historically to allow for a study/music area. The sitting room opens into the orangery and features a brick fire place. A dining room is set off the sitting room, again with doors to the orangery. The orangery, which was replaced three years ago, opens to the south facing private garden.

To the first floor are two double bedrooms both having southerly aspects and the family bathroom, which would benefit from some modernisation.

Wisteria Cottage also benefits from double glazing throughout.

From The Lane, wooden double gates lead to the side entrance and to the pathway, where there is a mature Wisteria growing on the side of the cottage, and round to the secluded sunny rear garden.

There is a wooden garden studio positioned at the end of the garden, ideal as a home office which has mains electricity and provision for plumbing and waste drainage. There is a storage area to the side of the studio.

The property is located in the highly sought-after Pikes Hill and is accessed via The Lane, which is a short tarmac pedestrian path leading off adjacent roads. Lyndhurst, situated in the heart of the New Forest National Park, provides an excellent range of amenities and facilities including a range of boutique shops and everyday stores, public houses, restaurants, hotels and a well-regarded primary school.

Southampton, by road, is about 8 1/2 miles distant and there are mainline rail services available at Brockenhurst and Ashurst, both approximately 4 miles away, with Brockenhurst also offering an excellent sixth form college. The M27 at Cadnam is within approximately 4 miles, giving access to Portsmouth and Bournemouth via the M27 and Winchester and London via the M3.

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.

A surprisingly spacious two bedroom cottage "tucked away" on a pretty pedestrian lane, betwixt two quiet lanes both leading to the open forest. Surrounded by pretty cottages, this property has a south facing garden with a wooden garden studio, a new orangery with parking on a nearby "no through lane".

The house, which is thought to date back to the Victorian era and which would benefit from a programme of selective refurbishment, would make an ideal retreat from the hustle and bustle of life!
