From our office in Lyndhurst proceed down the High Street onto the A35 Southampton Road and turn right opposite the Fire Station into Beaulieu Road. Proceed over the cattle grid and through the open forest, whereupon the property will be found at the head of the eighth gravel track on the right hand side. Parking is available immediately opposite Oak Cottage.

The property nestles quietly within an idyllic woodland setting in this extremely desirable New Forest location and is understood to enjoy the benefit of Forest Rights of Pasture, Mast and Estovers. Although Oak Cottage has the ambience of a detached period residence it is in fact attached and epitomises the traditional Victorian features of red brick elevations under a clay tiled roof, with a wealth of original period features. The property is positioned within private and mature grounds approaching half an acre and is located at the head of a gravel track within the highly desirable cattle grid area of the New Forest National Park, yet still within walking distance of this vibrant village centre with its range of amenities. It is also conveniently positioned within easy travelling distance of several main road links, mainline railway stations plus two international airports for journeys further afield.

Oak Cottage has been cleverly extended and refurbished over the years to create a spacious family home which has been immaculately presented throughout with a fine range of character features typical of the period including high ceilings throughout, cast iron fireplaces, some original windows, stripped pine doors and high skirting boards. The property retains an abundance of period charm and yet still provides potential for further extension if required. The recent addition of the impressive dual aspect Master Bedroom suite with En Suite Bathroom and Dressing Area allows lovely views over open forest to the front and over your own gardens to the rear. In addition Bedroom Two benefits from an En Suite Shower Room, plus a further two double Bedrooms and a stylish split level Family Bathroom which has been refitted with a contemporary white suite centring upon a freestanding bath. The property provides an ideal range of accommodation for those who enjoy entertaining, incorporating a range of four spacious reception rooms, all of which benefit from traditionally high ceilings and two of which benefit from working fireplaces, with both the Family and Drawing Rooms enjoying garden views and access via French doors to a sunny brick terrace. The heart of this property is the light and airy Kitchen which is traditional in design, incorporating painted wooden cabinets under granite working surfaces with a clay tiled floor leading to an open Breakfast Room with low level windows allowing lovely garden views and providing an ideal area for informal dining. In addition there is a generous Dining Room and spacious Inner Hallway/Study, plus a Cloakroom and useful Boot Room.

The property is approached via a shared gravel track which meanders through the open forest to a Detached Garage with electric door, separate Workshop and Utility Room. An original brick wall with traditional wrought iron railings and pedestrian gate provides access to the property, which is positioned within private and mature grounds of approximately half an acre and enjoys the added benefit of direct forest access and Forest Rights. A fine
feature of this property is the extensive south facing garden which incorporates beautifully landscaped lawns, with brick terraces and well stocked flower and shrub borders including a variety of colourful Acers and Camelias, plus a range of interesting tree specimens including Tulip, Maple and Weeping Willow to name but a few. There is also a large detached timber shed providing useful garden storage.

Beaulieu Road is a particularly sought after address within the heart of the New Forest National Park, enjoying immediate access to and lovely open views over the ancient woodlands and common land, which provide unlimited recreational facilities for nature lovers, walkers, cyclists and horse riders alike. For sailing enthusiasts internationally renowned sailing waters, marinas and beaches can be found within a short drive along the nearby South Coast.
