Set in a private road, opposite the church in the heart of the village, this wonderful family home offers extensive and well configured accommodation set across three floors. The beautifully manicured and private grounds enjoy a south westerly aspect and extend to approximately half an acre with the additional benefit of a double garage and off road parking.
The property enjoys a fantastic position being ideally located within a few hundred yards of the centre of Brockenhurst Village and a good selection of boutique shops, everyday stores, cafes and restaurants catering for everyday needs. The mainline railway station is within easy reach offering direct links to Southampton Central, Winchester and London Waterloo. The picturesque village of Beaulieu lies 7 miles to the East with the marina of Bucklers Hard on the Beaulieu River. Approximately 4 miles to the South is the Georgian market town of Lymington with its extensive yachting facilities, ferry service to Yarmouth, Isle of Wight and its famous Saturday county market. To the North is the village of Lyndhurst and Junction 1 of the M27 motorway which links to the M3 giving access to London.
This truly impressive architect designed residence was built in 1997 to an exacting specification for the current owners. The property sits in a slightly elevated position offering attractive Michelmersh brick elevations under tile hung rooflines.
A wonderful full height reception hall with feature corner window links to the principal living spaces with a gentle stairwell rising to a first floor galleried landing. The double aspect sitting room features a superb bath stone fireplace and full height windows and doors opening onto the terrace. The adjoining dining room again overlooks the gardens and links neatly to the triple aspect, open plan kitchen/breakfast/garden room which has been fitted with a range of modern units and appliances and French doors opening onto the terrace. Set off this magnificent open plan space is a walk-in pantry and a utility room with side access. Further rooms to this level include a good size, fully fitted office/study to the front aspect and a cloakroom.
To the first floor, a galleried landing overlooks the reception hall below and links to the master bedroom suite, a family bathroom and three further bedrooms, two of which share a ‘Jack and Jill’ shower room. A further stairwell rises to the second floor. All of the bedrooms feature built-in wardrobe facilities and enjoy elevated views across the gardens and grounds.
To the second floor, there is a full length games room/bedroom 5. This multi-functional room offers a fantastic entertainment space and currently houses a pool table, table tennis table and fussball table, but offers options for a variety of uses, including a home office removed from the main living accommodation.
The beautiful grounds are a particular feature of the property and extend in total to approximately 0.5 acre.
A five bar field gate opens onto a gravel parking area providing off road parking for several vehicles and access to the detached double garage and workshop. The area of garden to the front has planted beds and extensive screening from the road.
The grounds wrap around both sides of the house and open into the stunning rear garden area which enjoys a delightful south westerly aspect with a large expanse of lawn flanked by established borders.
Adjoining and extending across the rear of the house is a large paved sun terrace ideal for entertaining and al-fresco dining.
From here a curved pathway leads under an attractive wisteria clad pergola to the rear of the plot.
The gardens feature an array of specimen planting including Acer, Douglas Fir, Tulip and Silver Birch Trees as well as Camellias and Rhododendrons.
