The house was built 15 years ago and finished to a high standard which the current owners have continued to update over their time at the property. The property has a very good and efficient energy rating of ‘B’ which is unusual for the size of the property.
The views over the nature reserve are superb and it is the lower ground floor that offers direct access to the level garden while the ground floor has an expansive terrace and first floor has large balconies from which to enjoy the views. The front door opens to a generous reception hall with a full height galleried atrium and staircases to both the upper and lower floors. A significant portion of the ground floor can be used as an independent suite complete with kitchen / breakfast room, separate living room, a double bedroom and en suite shower room. This space would be ideal for older children, older relatives, guests or staff. Also on the ground floor is a study and a separate utility room that provides access to the front and rear gardens as well as the adjoining double garage where there is a workbench with sink and a wc. From the garage, stairs lead to a loft room that currently provides excellent storage but could, subject to the necessary approvals, be converted along with the garage to provide additional accommodation. The lower ground floor interacts beautifully with the garden and has a beautifully presented kitchen / dining / living room as well as a cloak room and separate boiler room.
On the first floor is the master bedroom complete with separate dressing room and en suite shower room as well as French windows onto a balcony overlooking the garden and nature reserve. The second bedroom also has a balcony and en suite shower room with two further double bedrooms and a bathroom.
On the second floor is given over to a further large bedroom which also has an adjoining bathroom complete with both bath and separate shower.
The house is approached via electrically operated vehicular gates with a separate pedestrian gate, both of which lead to a wide, block paved turning and parking area adjacent to both the front door and double garage. Accessed from the main rooms on the ground floor is a wide, deep terrace which extends along the entire rear elevation of the house providing a superb space from which to enjoy views over the garden to the nature reserve beyond.
The gardens are beautifully landscaped and designed to take as little upkeep as possible. There is a central ornamental pond flanked by open spaces with ornamental planting at the boundaries. There is a superb open fronted Loggia measuring 23′ x 13′ which is currently set up as an outdoor sitting room and dining room complete with light, power and television. In summer months, the gardens become an additional ‘room’ due to their immaculate condition, privacy and easy interaction with the living rooms of the house.
Whitby Road is a highly sought after address in this extremely popular village. All of Milford’s facilities are close at hand with steps down to the beach just 200 yards to the south. The Danestream nature reserve extends directly behind the house providing both an unspoilt outlook and privacy as well as an attractive woodland walk to the centre of the village. Around the village green are a selection of cafes, wine bars, boutiques and restaurants all of which contribute to the village’s appeal and strong sense of community. The towns of Lymington and New Milton lie east and west respectively offering a wide range of facilities, particularly an excellent sailing facilities at Lymington and a railway station at New Milton offering direct services to London Waterloo in 1h 45m. The open spaces of the New Forest lie to the north and provide endless walks and cycle paths.
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.
