Honey Lane, Burley, Ringwood BH24 4EN

£1,595,000 via Spencers, Burley: 01425 209383

Dating back to 1907, this charming four-bedroom property is nestled in a highly sought-after location in the heart of Burley. Meticulously refurbished to a high standard by the previous owners in 2016, this home offers the added advantage of granted planning permission as it comes to market.



THE SITUATION

The property lies approximately 1/4 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 a round of golf at Burley Golf Club. There is a mainline railway station at Brockenhurst, offering a direct route to London Waterloo in approximately 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 both easily accessible.



THE PROPERTY

Embracing the Clough era and its distinctive style, this property radiates character while presenting ample opportunities for expansion and modernization. Upon entry, you are welcomed by a spacious and functional utility area, complete with storage, a butler sink, and provisions for white goods. This seamlessly flows into the charming country kitchen, boasting dining space, generous storage, triple aspect views, and a stunning Lacanche cooker. With space for an American-style fridge freezer and dishwasher, the painted wooden shaker-style kitchen cupboards and quartz worktops offer modern convenience without sacrificing character—a perfect setting for both entertaining and family gatherings.

Moving through, you'll find the original entrance hall, leading to the staircase ascending to the first floor and the cloakroom. The grand sitting room, adorned with a working open fireplace, beckons with its natural light streaming through double aspect views and a picturesque bay window overlooking the rear garden. Adjacent to this space, there are two additional reception rooms, one currently serving as a playful haven with a fireplace, while the other bathes in natural light and functions as a luminous study, boasting a feature fireplace and a working log burner.

Ascending to the first floor unveils four generously proportioned bedrooms, three of which enjoy double aspect views and feature fireplaces that add to their allure and character. Completing this level is the family bathroom, boasting electric underfloor heating, a shower cubicle, a fitted bath, a handwash basin, and a low-level WC.



GROUNDS & GARDENS

The property is set in the centre of its grounds, spanning approximately 1.5 acres. Upon entry through a gateway and over a cattle grid, you are greeted by an expansive driveway providing ample parking for multiple cars.

Surrounding the house are meticulously landscaped gardens, showcasing a working well, expansive lawns, a former tennis court area, mature apple trees, a dedicated children’s play area, winding woodland paths, secluded nooks, a small copse, and a charming rockery.

The garden boasts a diverse array of mature trees, predominantly beech, along with a variety of shrubs, including a breathtaking avenue of azaleas lining both sides of the driveway. Certain sections of the garden have been recently re-fenced by the current owners.
