This attractive detached family house occupies a superb position and has the benefit of excellent planning permission for extension and redevelopment


Lark Rise Cottage enjoys a superb position within the New Forest National Park in a peaceful, low traffic environment backing onto common land. Located in a small hamlet on the fringes of the very well regarded village of Boldre, the property is conveniently positioned for the thriving and vibrant village of Brockenhurst with its main line railway station to London Waterloo and its reputable 6th Form College, as well as the Georgian market town of Lymington which is renowned for its sailing, marinas and wide range of boutiques and restaurants. This prime position means that Lark Rise Cottage is perfectly balanced for those looking for a quality lifestyle requirement which enables the ultimate mix of country living with all those amenities and services close to hand.

Further afield are the centres of Southampton and Winchester, and Junction 1 of the M27 is approximately 9 miles away, linking in with the M3 and wider motorway network.


Lark Rise Cottage, a charming 3-bedroom detached family house is in first class order and offers well proportioned accommodation over two floors with the principal rooms benefiting from views over the delightful gardens. The cottage, which is highly desirable in its own right, benefits from impressive planning permission for extensive redevelopment. The architects, Sherlock Boswell, have taken the traditional values of the property and given it a contemporary twist, with large open plan spaces and extensive use of glass, particularly on the rear southern elevation. The planning permission also provides for an excellent detached double garage with associated accommodation and large sail loft. The accommodation within the separate garage block could be utilised for any number of purposes.

The site and the plot are extremely special, extending in all to approximately 0.75 acres. The site, which has been restored to create the framework for a stunning woodland garden, leads directly to the rear onto common land, and there are some wonderful walks in the area directly onto the New Forest National Park.
