Prominently situated in the heart of the village, this rare picture perfect 400-year-old thatched cottage stands proud. Solid foundations ensure peace and tranquillity within its walls and to the rear in its secluded and private back garden, is the potential to build a separate dwelling, subject to planning consents.

The property enjoys a fantastic position being ideally located within yards of the centre of Brockenhurst Village and a good selection of boutique shops, everyday stores, cafes and restaurants catering for everyday needs. The mainline railway station is within easy reach offering direct links to Southampton Central, Winchester and London Waterloo.

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

The property is formed from the original cottage, which is believed to date back to circa 1600’s and with the addition of a large rear extension added in more recent times.

The older part of the house features a projecting thatched porch way with wooden front door opening into a charming sitting room with a feature fireplace and exposed ceiling beam.

Set either side of the front sitting room is a dining room to one side and an open snug to the other, which in turn leads to the ground floor bathroom.

From the snug, a stairwell rises to the first floor of the old house, providing access to two front bedrooms. Set behind and accessed from the front sitting room is a cleverly configured kitchen/breakfast room formed around a large island unit with a door opening onto the rear garden.

The main drawing room is a wonderful space covering almost the entirety of the ground floor extension and features an open fireplace, parquet tiled floor, exposed ceiling beams and double French doors opening onto the rear garden.

From here a striking cast iron spiral stairwell formed inside a curved brick atrium leads up to the first floor of the extended part of the house and to the triple aspect master bedroom, guest bedroom and family bathroom.

To the front of the property is a low rise brick wall with inset picket fence and a picket gate opening onto a small pathway leading to the front garden and entrance porch.

The main garden extends to the rear of the old house and along the extended section to the far end and driveway.

The country garden makes for a perfect nature retreat from the rigours of everyday life and features a pond and a number of established shrubs and plants dissected by paved pathways.

Set to the rear of the plot is a large cedar wood summer house, now in need of repair, offering options for a number of uses.

The property is accessed via a gravel driveway to the rear providing access to a large tandem carport and garage.
