Finished to a high specification, with meticulous attention to detail, this superb property offers flexible, well-proportioned accommodation ideal for a modern day family. The façade offers a stylish combination of exposed brick and panel clad elevations sympathetically blending the extension into the original house.
The ground floor comprises a central entrance hallway linking to a drawing room with feature bay window to one side and a sitting room to the other. The hallway also continues through to an impressive open plan kitchen/dining room fitted with a range of modern units and appliances, an island unit and granite worksurfaces. The kitchen/dining room offers an ideal space for family entertaining linking to both the sitting room and a conservatory with doors out from the kitchen and conservatory onto the rear terrace and garden. Further rooms to this level include a wc set off the hallway and a multi-purpose utility/study with doors opening onto the garden. An elegant balance of fitted carpets and oak flooring feature throughout.
From the hallway, a stairwell rises to the first floor landing which in turn links to five beautifully furnished bedrooms, one of which is en-suite and a modern family bathroom. Three of the bedrooms also feature built-in wardrobe facilities.
NB. If required, the property offers the opportunity to create two separate dwellings by way of splitting the original house from the extension (subject to the necessary planning consents being granted).
The property is tucked away in a popular cul-de-sac location within easy reach of Lyndhurst High Street. The delightful village Lyndhurst has been regarded as the ‘Capital’ of the New Forest since William the Conqueror established the area as a royal hunting ground in 1079. The picturesque high street offers a wide range of boutique shops, everyday stores, cafes and restaurants with access to the open forest from the end of the street. 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 Motorway is accessible from Junction 1 which is just a short drive providing access to Bournemouth, Southampton and the cathedral cities of Salisbury and Winchester.
To the front aspect is a small area of lawn garden with some established planting bordered by a low rise brick wall, with a gravel pathway leading to the front entrance. The good size rear garden is a real surprise, extending across the back and side of the property to the rear access door of the garage. The rear garden comprises a formal landscaped area featuring an area of lawn flanked by timber fence and planted borders. A seating area links neatly to the house to create a pleasant fusion of indoor/outdoor living. Set alongside the lawn garden is a second area currently used for pets. The rear garden enjoys views across the road to open fields and woodland in the distance. Set to the side of the property is a purpose-built car port offering additional off road parking in addition to the garage.
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.
