This popular village has a variety of boutique shops, several high-quality restaurants, three pubs, a tennis/squash club and a lively, ever active Community Centre. It is arguably one of the most sought-after villages on the South Coast. The beaches offer crystal clear waters, making them ideal for swimming and water sports. The picturesque hamlet of Keyhaven is also within an easy walk from the property and has two sailing clubs, river moorings and offers the opportunity to enjoy a range of water sports. The deep-water marinas at Lymington, where there are world-class yachting facilities, are within only 6 miles. The New Forest National Park is also within a few miles offering extensive walking and riding throughout.

There is an alternative front entrance as well as a separate side entrance to the annex. The main living room has an inset log burning stove and a large picture bay window to the south aspect flooding the room with light. The room is open to the dining area to one end with glazed Critle framed doors leading into the lovely hardwood glazed garden room. This generous room enjoys views over the rear garden and has glazed doors to the side and rear of the house. It is open to the breakfast room and to the kitchen. The kitchen has a range of storage cupboards and space for the appliances to include a fridge freezer, dishwasher and oven.

From the kitchen a door leads to the inner hallway where there is a front door, a cloak room and space for a further upright freezer or tumble dryer etc.

Annex: Steps lead down to a utility area with plumbing for the washing machine, storage cupboards and sink unit. This area is perfect to convert to a kitchen area for the annex. There is a side entrance door and a door to the sitting room for the annex. This delightful room has a wall of glazing incorporating doors to the front of the property. A further door from the utility area leads to the double bedroom and ensuite shower room.

The attractive turning staircase from the reception hallway leads to the first floor landing where there is a loft hatch fitted with a ladder to the loft space. There are three light and bright double bedrooms, one with ample fitted cupboards and all are served by the family bathroom with a shower above the bath, hand basin, heated towel rail and WC. 

The main house sits in the centre of a generous plot with a delightful mature south facing lawn with mature planting to the front and where the gravel drive leads from the wooden entrance gates set into the Listed high brick wall providing excellent privacy. The driveway provides ample parking for many vehicles and leads to a timber car port. There are four timber buildings throughout the grounds. Access is to both sides of the house. The rear garden is mainly laid to lawn with a vegetable area and an array of planting with some mature trees and shrubs. There is a timber studio and an area of terrace and decking to the rear of the house. The whole is enclosed with recently renewed close boarded fencing.

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.
