THE PROPERTY

Embracing the Clough era and its distinctive style, this property radiates character while presenting ample opportunities for expansion and modernization. Upon entry, you are welcomed by a spacious and functional utility area, complete with storage, a butler sink, and provisions for white goods. This seamlessly flows into the charming country kitchen, boasting dining space, generous storage, triple aspect views, and a stunning Lacanche cooker. With space for an American-style fridge freezer and dishwasher, the painted wooden shaker-style kitchen cupboards and quartz worktops offer modern convenience without sacrificing character—a perfect setting for both entertaining and family gatherings.

Moving through, you’ll find the original entrance hall, leading to the staircase ascending to the first floor and the cloakroom. The grand sitting room, adorned with a working open fireplace, beckons with its natural light streaming through double aspect views and a picturesque bay window overlooking the rear garden. Adjacent to this space, there are two additional reception rooms, one currently serving as a playful haven with a fireplace, while the other bathes in natural light and functions as a luminous study, boasting a feature fireplace and a working log burner.

Ascending to the first floor unveils four generously proportioned bedrooms, three of which enjoy double aspect views and feature fireplaces that add to their allure and character. Completing this level is the family bathroom, boasting electric underfloor heating, a shower cubicle, a fitted bath, a handwash basin, and a low-level WC.

THE SITUATION

The property lies approximately 1/4 mile from the centre of, arguably, one of the most beautiful and sought after villages in The New Forest, ideally situated to make full use of all the wonderful facilities the Forest has to offer. Whether it be sailing at nearby Lymington (12 miles) or a round of golf at Burley Golf Club. There is a mainline railway station at Brockenhurst, offering a direct route to London Waterloo in approximately 90 minutes. The market town of Ringwood is but a short drive away (5 miles). The larger shopping towns of Southampton (20 miles) to the east and Bournemouth (16 miles) to the west, both with their airports are both easily accessible.

GROUNDS & GARDENS

The property is set in the centre of its grounds, spanning approximately 1.5 acres. Upon entry through a gateway and over a cattle grid, you are greeted by an expansive driveway providing ample parking for multiple cars.

Surrounding the house are meticulously landscaped gardens, showcasing a working well, expansive lawns, a former tennis court area, mature apple trees, a dedicated children’s play area, winding woodland paths, secluded nooks, a small copse, and a charming rockery.

The garden boasts a diverse array of mature trees, predominantly beech, along with a variety of shrubs, including a breathtaking avenue of azaleas lining both sides of the driveway. Certain sections of the garden have been recently re-fenced by the current owners.

Living in Burley

The first Spencers New Forest office was established here in Burley, a honeypot village that feels untouched by time with its traditional cafes, cider farm, gift shops and tales of old smuggling routes, witches and dragons.

This is the New Forest on holiday as imagined by visitors: quaint and old-fashioned with ponies wandering down the high street. In Burley there’s a perpetual feeling of having escaped, that you are away from it all, especially as it is tucked in the lee of wooded slopes.

In fact Burley has easy access to the A31 (across heathland with spectacular views) and routes west to Bournemouth and east to Southampton, while the mainline station at Brockenhurst is only a short drive away across the Forest.

There’s a lovely sense of community in Burley and it is noticeable that once people move here many are reluctant to move out of the area. A range of activities to enjoy locally includes cycling, horse riding, coarse fishing and Burley Golf Club with a nine-hole heathland course.

The property market is dominated by picturesque thatched cottages and large country homes that feel discreetly hidden away, many with access to open Forest.
