Available for the first time since the 1950’s, this pretty country cottage, thought to date back to the 1800’s, now offers a wonderful opportunity to acquire a charming character property set in probably one of the best locations on the edge of Brockenhurst village with direct forest access. We understand that the property boasts some commoners rights including the right of pasture.

The property would now benefit from a programme of modernisation and provides an exciting opportunity for further enlargement STP. The well configured accommodation retains many of the original period features with all rooms having lovely open views across the forest and gardens.

The entrance leads into a sizeable reception hallway with stairs set at the rear leading up to the first floor and a back door leads to the garden. A shower room is set off the hallway.

A comfortable dining room is set to one side with dual aspects and doors leading into the drawing room set across the rear of the property, again with dual aspects and a central feature open fireplace.

The kitchen/breakfast room is set to the other side of the cottage offering a oil fired Aga providing cooking facilities, fitted kitchen units are set to across three walls with inset sink and coordinating worksurfaces. The kitchen offers dual aspect again affording lots of natural lighting and leads in turn into a large utility room at the rear. A floor mounted oil fired combination boiler provides heating and hot water.

A door from here leads into a useful coal/log store which can be accessed from the outside. Further access leads to a useful walk in pantry cold/store and a back door leads out to the parking area.

The first floor landing provides access to the four bedrooms, study/dressing room and family bathroom and benefits from a large full height window with views across the rear garden and has a linen store set at the far end.

The principal bedroom is set to the rear with an ornamental small fireplace and dual aspects providing elevated views. A study is adjoining and would make an ideal dressing room or ensuite.

The three further bedrooms are all good sized double rooms, all enjoying far reaching views.

A small bathroom of it’s time but with a wonderful view from the window, completes the first floor accommodation.

A post and rail fence with pedestrian gate borders the front of the property with a central path leading to the entrance door.

Double gates lead from the lane onto the gravelled drive providing ample off street parking. The rear garden can be accessed from both sides of the property and extend to just under 0.4 acres. Unusually set in an oval shaped plot, the garden is predominately laid to lawn with mature flower beds and a selection of mature trees providing some screening and shade.

A parcel of grazing land is set across the forest track and accessed via a five bar gate leading up to three garages with electricity connected. The enclosed paddock is circa 1.4 acres and houses 2 stables, a tack room, store and field shelter. The land benefits from direct riding out to miles of open forest.

The property is situated in a prime position on the western periphery the village of Brockenhurst in an exclusive area known as South Weirs. The open forest sits directly in front of the property providing many miles of countryside for walking and riding. The nearby Brockenhurst village centre is easily accessible offering a mainline station with direct access to London Waterloo (approximately 90 minutes) and an extensive range of local shops and restaurants.

About 4 miles south is the Georgian market town of Lymington with its extensive yachting facilities, a ferry service to Yarmouth, Isle of Wight and a Saturday market.

To the north is the New Forest village of Lyndhurst and Junction 1 of the M27 motorway which links to the M3 for access to London.

Living in Brockenhurst

It is Brockenhurst’s mainline station (service into London Waterloo approximately 90 minutes) that turns the dream of a country idyll into reality for those working up in London and makes Brockenhurst village a property hot spot.

Brockenhurst is the largest village in the New Forest, a thriving and lively mix of community and cachet, quality and quirky with all the necessary essentials of a proper working village - butcher, bakery and greengrocer, full quota of cafes and tea houses, plus services such as doctor, dentist and post office. Work into the equation the unexpected and the glamorous: premier golf course, luxurious spa and top restaurants such as The Pig (the first in the group of hip country house hotels) and Cambium (fine dining at Careys Manor)... It all makes Brockenhurst a gem in the heart of the Forest.

Property ranges from Edwardian villas to thatched timber-framed cottages, and imaginative new builds to old Forest lodges. Many properties have access or views to open Forest and almost all are within walking distance of the station. Looking for an Estate Agent in Brockenhurst? Spencers are here to help.
