The house is set back from Kivernell Road and occupies a large corner plot in a highly convenient position in this highly sought after coastal village. The village green with independent shops, restaurants and cafes is a short distance away, as is access to excellent swimming beaches. Milford on Sea is ideally positioned to enjoy both the New Forest and stunning coastal walks. There is a long beach just to the south of the property and the open Forest to the north of the village offers superb walks and bike rides. The Georgian market town of Lymington, some 3 miles away, offers a wider range of shops and facilities that cater for most daily requirements and there are world renowned sailing and water sports facilities at both Lymington and the nearby coastal hamlet of Keyhaven. There are direct trains to London Waterloo from Brockenhurst Station taking approximately 90 minutes.
The main drive is located off New Valley Road with a driveway leading up to the parking/turning area and spacious double garage with twin up and over doors built in the same style as the house. The garage has vaulted storage and could be converted to create a home office, gym, or potentially additional accommodation (S.T.P.P). Behind the garage, and to its side, is a screened area of lawn which offers a private space that could be used to create a kitchen garden with raised beds. The front garden/driveway is sufficient to build additional garaging if required.
The main garden lies to the rear of the house and is south facing with the lawn forming the majority of the space which is surrounded by colourful mature borders, and a variety of evergreen mature trees and plantings providing both seclusion and shade. It is planted to be delightful in spring when the borders are full of daffodils and tulips. There is also the ability to increase the level of privacy by replacing the existing picket fence with a higher panel fence as well as to extend and remodel the terrace to enlarge the space for al fresco dining.

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.
