The house is approached over a gravel drive which provides plenty of off road parking and access to the detached garage. The garage building is very well proportioned measuring nearly 17′ by over 30′ currently arranged as garage and storage space with a workshop towards the rear.

Planning permission is in place for the garage to be remodelled and increased to two stories. The current permission allows for a ground floor garage and bedroom with stairs to the first floor where there is an open plan studio / sitting room with sliding doors onto a south facing balcony perfectly positioned to take in the south westerly views to the sea and horizon.

The gardens lie predominantly to the south of the house and are level and mainly laid to lawn with mature borders framing the boundaries. There is a timber summer house with power and light as well as a paved terrace ideal for dining adjacent to the house and accessible from the French windows in the kitchen.

The house occupies a prime position in Milford on Sea, one of the areas most popular coastal villages offering year round swimming and cliff top walks as well as a strong community with independent shops, bars and restaurants around the village green. The beaches and shops are a short walk away and Lymington lies 4 miles to the north east offering a wider range of shops as well as renowned sailing facilities. Direct rail services to London Waterloo are available from New Milton Station (3.6 miles) and Brockenhurst (8.9 miles). The wide open spaces of the New Forest lie just to the north with outstanding walks and cycle trails.

Copse House is a light and extremely spacious house that is beautifully presented and sits on one of the village’s most popular roads. The sparkling waters of the Solent and The Needles are visible at the end of the road and set the tone perfectly for this glorious coastal home. 

The house has been carefully updated by the current owners and offers extremely flexible accommodation over two floors. 

The main living space is an expansive open plan room with exposed beams, a wood burning stove and several French windows which face south and open onto the garden. This space incorporates a living / dining room which flows into the fully fitted kitchen complete with central island and breakfast bar as well as space for a traditional range cooker and further French windows on to the garden. Beyond the kitchen is a rear hall, wc and a large laundry room with ample space for washing and drying clothes and sailing equipment. There are two further reception rooms, both of which have doors on to the garden which would be an ideal bedroom and sitting room for extended family or holiday let. Between these two rooms is a shower room with twin sinks, wc and large shower. These rooms are linked by a hall with a single door to the main ground floor accommodation. The stairs to the first floor rise from a central hall where there is the front door and a further wc. 

Upstairs there are four very well proportioned bedrooms, all of which have south facing windows with views towards the sea. The master bedroom has a dual aspect, built in wardrobes, a period feature fireplace and a recently updated en suite shower room. The second bedroom is another large room, also dual aspect and featuring a large built in wardrobe. The remaining two double bedrooms are also very well presented, light rooms with views over the garden to the sea. A family bathroom and further wc complete the accommodation.

Living in Milford on Sea

Milford on Sea is currently a property hot spot. It is one of the last remaining seaside villages in Hampshire and is delightfully picturesque with a proper village green at its centre. This green is often the focus for popular village events such as maypole dancing and the annual food festival and is fringed by a range of independents (including antiques shops, butcher’s, chemists and greengrocer’s). Recently Milford has developed something of a reputation as a foodie destination with its collection of tea rooms, bistros, wine bar, fish and chips and specialist fish restaurant, plus more.

This is a vibrant village with a friendly and lively community, and appeals to both young families (the primary school has been rated ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted) and older couples looking for somewhere on the coast to relax. The old-fashioned seafront stretches from Hurst spit and Keyhaven nature reserve in the east towards Christchurch Harbour to the west, and enjoys lovely views across the Solent to the Isle of Wight and the Needles.

A good mix of properties includes striking contemporary seafront homes and cliff top apartments with big sea views, quaint terraced old fishermen’s cottages and some substantial 1920s and 1930s Ravenscroft arts and crafts influenced homes in and around Barnes Lane.
