£1,200,000 via Spencers, Brockenhurst: 01590 631661

A fantastic opportunity to purchase a substantial detached bungalow available for the first time in over 40 years and offering considerable potential for further enlargement (STP) close to the heart of the village.

The property has been lovingly maintained and extended by the current owner and extends to approximately 1458 sq.ft. and further benefits from a beautiful mature south facing rear garden, attached garage and off-road parking. The property is set within the cattle grid and close proximity of the open forest at Aldridge Hill.

The property enjoys a prime New Forest location on Rhinefield Road, close to the heart of Brockenhurst village centre. The village offers a mainline railway station with direct links to London Waterloo in approximately 90 minutes and a good local community of shops and restaurants.

The Georgian coastal town of Lymington is only 4 miles to the south with its famous Saturday country market, extensive yachting facilities and ferry service to the Isle of Wight. The picturesque village of Beaulieu lies 7 miles to the East with the marina of Bucklers Hard on the Beaulieu River. To the north is the village of Lyndhurst and Junction 1 of the M27 motorway which links to the M3, giving access to London.

This highly desirable bungalow was built circa 1969 with only two previous owners and has been extended in recent years to offer generous accommodation. The entrance hall links all of the accommodation with a cloakroom and storage cupboards set off it.

A generous dual aspect living room is set at the rear of the property overlooking the private rear garden with a door leading out to the rear terrace. A large bay window and side window allow for plentiful light. A central feature fireplace benefits from a living flame gas fire with complimentary stone surround.

The dining room is set adjacent at the rear of the property and again benefits from views across the garden.

A well fitted modern kitchen/breakfast room is set at the front of the property with access out to the front garden/orchard and windows overlooking this pretty area and forest beyond. There is an extensive range of fitted units and coordinating worksurfaces with integrated oven and hob with space for a small breakfast table and chairs.

Set off the hallway there is a modern family bathroom with bath and shower fitments overhead, WC and wash hand basin.

Bedroom three is set at the end of this hall which overlooks the front drive and forest beyond.

A further inner hallway cleverly leads to the three further bedrooms. The principal bedroom overlooks the rear garden and offers space for storage. Bedroom two has French doors leading out to the rear garden with the fourth bedroom/office overlooking the front and providing recessed space for a desk and which completes the accommodation.

The property is set back from the road in a slightly elevated position accessed via a cattle grid leading onto the driveway which provides ample off street parking. A single attached garage is set to one side with electric roller door. A side gate leads to an enclosed part of the front garden which has previously been used as a chicken run but is currently laid out as a small orchard with a plum and pear tree and a useful shed to the side. The remainder of the front garden features a mature bed of shrubs with ornamental magnolia tree providing screening and privacy. A further gate from here leads round to the side and rear garden.

A wonderfully established south facing garden to the rear is a real feature of this property and has been planted with an array of shrubs and plants providing colour throughout the seasons including azaleas and extensive climbing roses. The garden is predominantly laid to lawn with a summer house set to the rear, a number of seating areas including a paved terrace abutting the rear of the property with an attractive walled area. A feature gazebo is set outside bedroom three with stunning climbing wisteria. The garden offers a high level of privacy and seclusion as well as a safe environment for children to play. In total, the grounds extend to just under 0.25 acre.
