The house sits on the edge of Barton on Sea and therefore enjoys both the proximity of facilities while also retaining a distinct rural feel. The house overlooks the open common across which there are footpaths towards the coast. Barton itself caters for most daily requirements with a convenience store & post office as well as a selection of excellent cafes and restaurants. Nearby New Milton offers a wider range of facilities including a supermarket, a busy High Street and mainline railway station offering direct services to London Waterloo. The beach at Barton offers sandy shores and the New Forest National Park lies just to the north offering countless walks and cycle rides. The sailing centres of Lymington, Mudeford and Christchurch are also perfectly placed for this charming family home.
The house is set well back from this charming lane which retains a distinctly rural feel. There are electric gates opening to the driveway leads through mature trees, which provide a screen from the road, and arrives at a large turning and parking area adjacent to the house and adjoining garage which has an electric roller door.
There is planning permission which was granted in 2020 for a detached garage and double car port that would sit at 90 degrees to the house. There is a large terrace which can be accessed from the sitting room as well as a timber framed, pitched roof garden room that would suit a variety of purposes including as a home office or gym.
The gardens lie to the front and rear of the house and have been carefully planted to provide glorious colour in the summer months. The mature trees form a natural border to the property and add to its unspoilt and tranquil atmosphere.
Extending to over 3,300 square feet this spacious and well presented house offers exceptional accommodation with spacious rooms throughout. The front door opens to an impressive reception hall with stairs rising to the first floor and access to the ground floor rooms. Immediately off the entrance hall is a dining room which overlooks the garden and also leads on to a very spacious sitting room measuring 28′ x 16′ which has dual aspect and French windows opening onto both the front and rear gardens as well as a recessed wood burning stove. There is an equally spacious kitchen / family room with bi-fold doors opening onto the garden. Also on the ground floor is a study, utility room and wc.
Upstairs the master bedroom has an adjoining dressing room and en suite bathroom which also serves as en suite facilities for Bedroom 4. The master bedroom also has French windows opening onto a large balcony which overlooks the garden and also provides a delightful covered area beneath for outside dining. There are 4 further double bedrooms, all of which have build in wardrobes, with the guest bedroom also having its own en suite.
Living in Barton on Sea
Barton on Sea enjoys a stunning coastal location with views stretching from Hurst Castle to Hengistbury Head. In addition it benefits from all of the facilities of neighbouring New Milton, such as mainline station, arts centre, weekly market and range of shops.
Although Barton on Sea has a history dating back to Anglo Saxon times it developed relatively recently and comprises mostly avenues and closes of mid-century and later detached family homes, plus a row of old coastguard cottages, substantial properties in big plots with even bigger views on Barton Common Road and some imaginative new builds including town houses.
Traditionally it has been a popular area for those considering retiring, but it also offers a great deal for families with parks and excellent state and independent schooling. New Milton Junior School is rated ‘good’ by Ofsted, while both New Milton Infant School and The Arnewood School (11-19 Academy), are rated ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted. And Durlston Court Preparatory is ranked an impressive number 46 in The Times list of the top 100 independent prep schools.
