The house is set well back from the road and occupies a particularly secluded position on the edge of this highly sought after village. Milford on Sea is ideally positioned to enjoy both the New Forest and the coast. There is a long beach perfect for swimming just south of the property and the open Forest to the north of the village offers superb walks and bike rides. Milford itself is a thriving village with many independent shops and cafes as well as numerous excellent bars, restaurants and pubs around the village green. Lymington offers a wider range of shops and facilities that cater for most daily requirements and there are excellent sailing and watersports facilities at both Lymington and nearby Keyhaven. There are direct trains to London Waterloo from Brockenhurst Station taking approximately 90 minutes.
The house is a substantial detached property that was built by Dunford Construction, a local and well respected builder. The house is set well back from Whitby Road and enjoys an elevated position overlooking its own garden and across the Danestream valley. The house is designed on a grand scale with large rooms and particularly high ceilings and large windows. The front door opens to an entrance hall with coat cupboards and wc. Beyond this area is an impressive staircase hall which gives access to all principal ground floor rooms. On the right hand side is a generous study and separate TV room. On the left hand side of the hall is a superb drawing room with double doors and a focal fireplace. There are French Windows that lead to the terrace overlooking the garden. The open plan kitchen/dining room runs across the rear of the house and enjoys glorious views of the garden and countryside beyond. The kitchen has been recently refitted and contains a range of integral appliances, a central island unit and an exquisite corner bay window which maximises light flooding into this beautiful space. The dining area also has a large window overlooking the garden as well as French windows onto the terrace. Off the kitchen is a utility room with work surfaces and a sink as well as high and low level cupboards.
On the first floor a central landing provides access to four superb bedrooms. Three of these rooms have en suite shower rooms and the fourth double bedroom is opposite the family bathroom. A further staircase rises to the second floor where there is a particularly spacious bedroom which occupies the entire floor and also has an en suite shower room.
The house is approached over a block paviour drive that provides ample parking and access to the wide garage with an electric up and over door. There is a path to the side of the house leading to the rear garden. Accessible from the drawing room and kitchen / dining room is a paved terrace that is raised above the level of the rest of the garden and enjoys commanding views and is the perfect spot for outdoor suppers and barbecues. From the terrace, steps lead down through the well planted gardens to second wide terrace which is partly paved and graveled containing an attractive pond with mature shrubs and plants surrounding it. On a lower level is a level area of lawn with a winding path leading through it to a timber summer house which contains a sauna.
Living in Milford on Sea
Milford on Sea is currently a property hot spot. It is one of the last remaining seaside villages in Hampshire and is delightfully picturesque with a proper village green at its centre. This green is often the focus for popular village events such as maypole dancing and the annual food festival and is fringed by a range of independents (including antiques shops, butcher’s, chemists and greengrocer’s). Recently Milford has developed something of a reputation as a foodie destination with its collection of tea rooms, bistros, wine bar, fish and chips and specialist fish restaurant, plus more.
This is a vibrant village with a friendly and lively community, and appeals to both young families (the primary school has been rated ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted) and older couples looking for somewhere on the coast to relax. The old-fashioned seafront stretches from Hurst spit and Keyhaven nature reserve in the east towards Christchurch Harbour to the west, and enjoys lovely views across the Solent to the Isle of Wight and the Needles.
A good mix of properties includes striking contemporary seafront homes and cliff top apartments with big sea views, quaint terraced old fishermen’s cottages and some substantial 1920s and 1930s Ravenscroft arts and crafts influenced homes in and around Barnes Lane.
