£1,050,000 via Spencers, Brockenhurst: 01590 631661

This picturesque country cottage is situated in the heart of the New Forest, boasting period features throughout along with an extensive outbuilding. There are fields on three sides and a square mile of open heathland, at the front of the property, which is part of a New Forest Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI).

Throughout the period that the owners have lived here, they have made numerous alterations and upgraded throughout making a truly warm and cosy home. The ground floor of the cottage consists of a quarry tiled porch, triple aspect spacious living room and kitchen with an oil powered Stanley range and Miele appliances including an induction hob. Both the living room and hallway benefit from solid oak flooring. Further rooms include the dining room, shower room/WC with underfloor heating and storage cupboards where the water softener is located.

On the first floor there are three double bedrooms, two of which have en-suite facilities, one including a bath. The property has Common Rights, for grazing animals on the open forest land. As you approach, gates lead over the cattle grid to the property, where there is a private driveway with parking for multiple vehicles. This in turn leads to the outbuilding, containing a double garage with electrically operated up and over doors, utility room, workshop and cellar. The outbuilding also benefits from a fully owned 4KW solar panel array providing additional electricity. A covered pergola connects the cottage to the outbuilding, originally containing four stables, which have been converted into two office spaces, a store & a photographic dark room. There is a fourth bedroom above, in a Tallet (hay loft), that offers a bedroom/living room and shower/WC which has previously been used as a self-contained annexe or a holiday let.

Outside, the situation of the cottage is stunning with views of surrounding fields/paddocks. The garden is mainly laid to lawn with a stone barbeque, storage shed and a functioning well. The various planted shrubs provide year round colour. There is a large patio area at the rear (south) aspect, ideal for entertaining.

At the front of the property you walk out onto Penn common and Canada common with its lovely riding and walks of what is considered some of the New Forest’s best open land. Despite its rural location the property is close to good commuter links. Junction 1 of the M27 is just over 2 miles away. Southampton Airport Parkway train station offers a direct train to London Waterloo in 1 hour 10 mins. Southampton and Bournemouth airports are within easy commuting distance, and the market town of Romsey is approx. 7 miles away. The local primary school is in Nomansland and a South Wilts bus from Canada Common will take pupils to Bishops Grammar School in Salisbury.
