Milford on Sea is the area’s most popular village. Its long beaches provide the perfect place to embrace outdoor life. Here one can walk, swim or sunbathe and enjoy this picturesque gateway to the extensive nature reserve that extends east from the village across saltmarshes with a sea wall path providing an onward walk or cycle ride to Lymington to the east and Barton on Sea to the west.

The thriving village offers a wide selection of pubs, restaurants, wine bars, cafes and boutiques, many of which are clustered around the traditional village green in the centre of the village which is itself less than half a mile from the house.

Lymington is only four miles to the north-west and offers a wider range of shops and services, as well as a weekly Saturday market, on its attractive Georgian High Street. Lymington is renowned for its range of sailing facilities including boat yards, marinas and sailing clubs.

Communications are excellent and one can join the motorway network just north of Lyndhurst at Cadnam. There are also two direct services per hour from Brockenhurst station (8.8 miles) to London Waterloo in just over an hour and a half.

Over the years Milford on Sea has established itself as an extremely popular place to live.

The generously proportioned accommodation extends to approximately 4045 sq. ft. (including the garage), and has undergone thoughtful extensions, seamlessly integrating a variety of spaces on the ground floor. These include a warm and inviting entrance hall, a spacious triple-aspect drawing room centered around a large fireplace inglenook fitted with a wood burning stove, a substantial study complete with built-in desk and bookcases, a convenient W/C, and a separate utility room for added functionality. The contemporary dual-aspect kitchen/breakfast room boasts integral appliances, a central island unit, and a clearly defined breakfast area, leading out to the beautiful south facing gardens through bi-fold doors. Adjacent, the TV room/snug, with a cozy gas fire, connects easily to the impressive formal dining room, featuring a large box bay window to the front and ample storage cupboards.

From the entrance hall, the turning staircase to the first floor landing provides access to four double bedrooms. Among them, the exceptional principal suite offers stunning sea views across the fields to the Isle of Wight, complemented by a walk-in wardrobe and an impressive modern en-suite shower room. The remaining spacious bedrooms are serviced by a separate bathroom, fitted with a roll-top bath and a separate walk-in shower.

The house is approached over a wide, in-and-out gravel drive way offering plenty of parking as well as access to both the house and the detached double garage which has electrically operated up and over doors as well as a boarded loft storage area and wc with wash hand basin. 

The formal gardens are a particular feature of the house and provide a large, level area, mostly laid to lawn which faces south and enjoys an unspoilt outlook over open countryside. The borders are planted with mature shrubs and trees while a paved terrace running along the rear of the house provides a perfect spot for dining or relaxing.

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.
