The Property:

The cottage is recognised as a non-designated heritage asset. It has been renovated and extended in recent times to a particularly high specification, whilst carefully retaining its character, and now offers superb accommodation to suit a number of buyer requirements with well configured and light rooms. The property retains many period features including exposed beams and brickwork, and has been refitted with quality sage green aluminium framed double glazing and under floor heating to the ground floor. The thatch has been well maintained and part replaced in recent times. The property also features attractive internal doors with individual stained glass panels.

A covered storm porch leads to the main entrance into a generous reception hall which benefits from an exposed brick fireplace with inset woodburning stove with an oak stair case leading up to first floor. From here a step leads down to the rear hall which has a door out to the outside terrace. A cloakroom is set from here and a further door leads into the kitchen.

A cosy triple aspect sitting room is set to one side of the hallway with French doors leading out to the side garden and wooden tile effect flooring. A central fireplace with wooden mantel houses an inset electric wood burner.

Across the hallway the snug is set offering a further fireplace with exposed brick and an electric effect wood burner. A charming seating area is set at the front of this room with dual aspects overlooking the open forest and cricket pitch in front. A large walk in storage cupboard is set to the side and a step leads down into the kitchen.

The kitchen is an outstanding feature of the cottage with an extensive range of wooden soft grey units from ‘Winchester Kitchens’ with the benefit of a kitchen island with coordinating wooden units set under quartz worksurfaces. Integrated appliances include a double oven, dishwasher, induction hob with extractor set over and space for a fridge freezer. The kitchen has an elegant, tiled floor running through to the extended dining area which is set under a large roof lantern allowing for plentiful light with bifold doors providing access out to the side terrace and garden with additional windows and views across the garden and paddock beyond.

The first floor landing provides access to all bedrooms and family bathroom.

The principal bedroom is set to one side of the landing which has elevated views over the side garden and features double built in wardrobes and useful eaves storage. A modern ensuite shower room is set from here and offers a walk in shower cubicle, WC, wash and basin with tiled surrounds.

A rear bedroom provides access to a walk in airing cupboard and benefits from views across the paddocks to the rear. Set at the front of the cottage there are two additional bedrooms with the larger dual aspect bedroom offering a dressing area with superb, elevated views across the open forest and cricket pitch beyond.

Grounds & Gardens: 

The delightful gardens wrap around the property with a picket fence at the front bordering the open forest with roaming ponies and donkeys. A gate opens to a path leading down to the main entrance into the property.

Lawns wrap around to the side and rear gardens with interspersed paving, magnolia tree and flower beds with mature planting. The attractive rear garden offers a terrace abutting the kitchen ideal for seating and dining with ornamental trees and mature shrubs. A feature of the garden is the walled section, which provides a secluded additional parcel of ‘secret’ garden accessed via steps down from the main lawn. The area to the rear of the garage offers additional outbuildings including storage sheds, summer house and potting shed with composting area.

A detached double garage is set to the side with parking in front and to the side which is accessed via double gates.

Living in Lyndhurst

Lyndhurst is nicknamed the capital of the New Forest. This is partly because it is centrally located within the Forest, and partly because it is home to the district council, the Forestry Commission’s district office for South England and the Verderers’ Court (Verderers are the guardians of the Forest’s commoning rights and therefore protectors of the Forest landscape). It is also home to the New Forest Centre with Forest-themed museum, library and gallery.

Its High Street is a busy thoroughfare with numerous tea shops and coffee houses. As a shopping experience it runs the gamut from old-fashioned sweet shop and an award-winning butcher’s, through art gallery and eclectic vintage interiors shop to the Ferrari and Maserati showroom.

Eateries range from popular country inns, such as The Royal Oak at Bank (a hamlet within the parish boundary) and Lime Wood, a hip country house hotel with Good Food Guide recommended restaurant and luxurious spa.

Property is equally varied: from traditional terraced cottages to big country houses. Lyndhurst also appeals to commuters as there are links to major road networks at Ashurst and Cadnam as well as mainline stations at Ashurst and Brockenhurst.
