A rare opportunity to purchase this delightful detached four-bedroom property, situated in a highly sought-after location in the heart of Burley. Within walking distance to the village and the open forest, this home boasts a charming mature rear garden and comes with the added advantage of access rights through the field at the back to the open forest. While the property could benefit from some updating, it presents a fantastic opportunity for modernization and has its full planning allowance available. Additional features include off-street parking and two garages.


Long Close Cottage lies about half a 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 golf at one of the many courses in the area including Brockenhurst with its mainline railway station (8 miles, Waterloo 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 easily accessible.


Entering the property from the side, you are welcomed into a spacious entrance hall that houses the staircase and the downstairs cloakroom. To the left of the entrance hall is the family room, which leads into the light and airy conservatory. This glorious room, filled with an abundance of natural light, offers wonderful views of the rear garden.

To the right lies the study and a large sitting room, featuring double-aspect views and a large bay window that floods the room with natural light. The sitting room also boasts a feature fireplace. Adjacent to this is the dining room, which leads to the fully fitted kitchen. From the kitchen, you can access a useful utility space with plumbing for white goods, a side entrance to the property, and an additional cloakroom.

On the first floor, there are four good-sized bedrooms, all with single-aspect views of the surrounding area and the beautiful rear garden. Three of the bedrooms feature fitted wardrobes. This level also includes two family bathrooms, both fully fitted with a bath, low-level WC, and hand wash basin. One of the bathrooms additionally features a walk-in shower cubicle.


The property features off-street parking on both sides and includes two generously sized garages. Access to the rear garden is available from both sides of the house. The rear garden is a highlight, with mature, beautiful plant beds filled with flowers and shrubs, and the remainder mainly laid to lawn, surrounded by hedging for privacy. Additionally, there is a brick-built outbuilding and a shed, providing convenient storage solutions. The property also benefits from a right of access through neighbouring paddock land that abuts the rear, enhancing the sense of space and tranquility and providing access to the open forest.
