From our office in Lyndhurst proceed down the High Street, bearing right opposite Meridien Modena Garage onto Gosport Lane, keeping in the right hand lane. Bear right around Goose Green and follow the signs for the A35/Christchurch onto Chapel Lane. Take the first right turn into Sandy Lane and the driveway to Wymering House will be found on the left hand side, denoted by our For Sale board (there is also a brick wall with a sign saying Chart House at the entrance to the driveway). The property will be found at the end of this gravel drive.

The properties are positioned within a sizeable private plot measuring approximately 1.25 acres and could also provide exciting redevelopment potential, however this would naturally be subject to obtaining the necessary planning consents. This mature plot is located at the head of a quiet gravel track which is positioned away from the main thoroughfare in this highly desirable village location.

Wymering House has origins believed to be in the mid 1900's and provides a spacious character home comprising three generous double bedrooms and three reception rooms. An attractive stone archway provides access through the original solid oak door to a spacious Entrance Hall and to the extensive Dining Room (measuring approx 6 x 4 metres) which features two bay windows and an exposed beam. The adjacent Kitchen / Breakfast Room is fitted with a range of solid light oak units with integrated Miele appliances and a dishwasher, in addition there is plenty of space for a breakfast table and doors providing access to the the rear garden, spacious Utility Room and Cloakroom. The light and airy Sitting Room enjoys an enviable triple aspect and centres upon a stone fireplace (currently blocked), with an exposed beam and original leaded French doors leading to the Sun Room, and is also open to a useful Study area with walk-in bay window and fitted shelving. The Sun Room is of particular note, providing a sizeable conservatory style room with marble flooring, featuring a stone chimney breast (currently blocked) and providing access to the heated swimming pool and surrounding sun terrace. On the first floor the dual aspect Master Bedroom Suite features a range of fitted furniture, with an En Suite Bathroom and twin French doors providing access to a sizeable private Balcony. There are also two further Bedrooms, a Family Bathroom and a separate W.C. It is worth noting there were originally four bedrooms however the current owner knocked through two to create a large bedroom and this could very easily be reversed if a fourth bedroom was required.

The detached Cottage is believed to have once served as the original stable block to neighbouring Hill House and over the years has been converted to provide spacious self-contained living accommodation in the form of an extensive Sitting / Dining Room and two double bedrooms.

Outside, twin wrought iron gates allow access onto the tarmacadam driveway and to the extensive grounds which measure approximately 1.25 acres, which are fully enclosed by a variety of mature Lime, Oak and Fir trees to ensure a high level of privacy and seclusion within. The gardens are mainly laid to lawn with mature shrub borders and feature an enclosed heated swimming pool, timber Summer House and Greenhouse. There is also a detached Double Garage with an adjacent lean-to Potting Shed, plus two useful storage rooms attached to the Cottage.

This popular New Forest village provides a thriving semi-rural community along with a variety of day-to-day amenities, church, public houses & eateries, in additional to its renowned educational and recreational facilities. Ideally located for the commuter with several main road, mainline railway and airport links all found within a short drive and for nature lovers, walkers & cyclists alike miles of open forest are found within easy walking distance, in addition to the internationally renowned sailing waters of the south coast which are also found nearby.
