The house occupies a particularly private and secluded position yet its enviable location close to the beach at Milford on Sea affords glimpses of the sea from the principle bedrooms. The house is quietly situated at the end of a short no through road and as a result does not experience any passing traffic. Directly opposite the entrance to Hurdles Mead is the Milford on Sea beach which provides wonderful safe swimming and there is a selection of waterside cafes and restaurants within a short walk. Nearby Keyhaven provides a wider range of coastal activities with a well supported sailing club.
Milford on Sea is a thriving village ideally located to enjoy both the New Forest and the coast. There are a range of shops, wine bars and excellent restaurants situated around the village green and a wider range of national and independent shops in nearby Lymington which is approximately four miles to the north east. Lymington is also renowned for its excellent sailing facilities included several marinas and very well attended sailing clubs.
The nearby New Forest is an unspoilt haven with thousands of acres of open heath and forest providing an abundance of wildlife as well as a variety of cycle tracks and walks.
The house was built in the late 1990s by Colten, a highly regarded local builders. The current owners have occupied the house from new and have recently updated the kitchen and removed a wall to create a superb kitchen / dining room that accesses both the sitting room and conservatory.
The front door opens to a staircase hall from all principle reception rooms are accessed. The sitting room is very well proportioned and features a gas, flame effect fire with a stone surround as well as a south facing bay window and double doors leading to the kitchen / dining room. The kitchen / dining room can also be reached via the hall. The kitchen has recently been refitted and features built in appliances as well as enjoying views over the rear garden. The kitchen opens to a generous dining room that links with the sitting room via double doors as well as being adjacent to a superb conservatory that is centrally heated and has views across the level garden as well as providing access to a secluded and sunny terrace. Also on the ground floor is a charming study at the front of the house and a wc. Beyond the kitchen is a generous utility room with a back door and a separate door to the integral double garage.
Upstairs there are five bedrooms all accessed from a central landing with both the master bedroom and guest bedroom positioned at the front of the house enjoying sea glimpses. The master bedroom is particularly spacious and contains a dressing area with built in wardrobes and space for a dressing table. There is an en suite bathroom with bath, wc, basin and bidet. The guest bedroom has built in wardrobes and an en suite shower room with shower cubicle, wc and basin.
There are two further double bedrooms, a single bedroom / second study and a family bathroom comprising bath with shower over, wash basin, bidet and wc.
The house is approached over a private brick paviour road leading to a very large turning and parking area adjacent to the house and garage. There is also a further area of garden in front of the house on which there currently stands a garden shed. This area would make an ideal kitchen garden or space to park a motor home or RIB.
The gardens wrap around the house and are level and mostly laid to lawn. Protected from its neighbours by mature hedges, the main part of the garden lies to the rear of the house and there is also an attractive dining terrace with a southerly and easterly aspect that is easily accessible from the conservatory.
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.
