Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A quite exquisite and substantial five bedroom, four reception room family home. Originally built as two separate cottages in the early 18th century, the properties underwent conversion to the single existing property at the beginning of the 20th century. Bye Cottage retains many original features and is steeped in character, complimented by delightful mature gardens of approximately 0.6 of an acre. The property is bounded on all sides by open forest. An opportunity to acquire a truly unique New Forest home. Energy Efficiency Rating: D

Bye Cottage lies about ½ a 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 golf at one of the many courses in the area including the nine hole course at Burley only a short walk from the property. The village of Brockenhurst is close by with its mainline railway station (8 miles, Waterloo 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.
A half panel glazed front door leads to the entrance hall with exposed beams and cloakroom. Immediately ahead is the sitting room with its twin aspect gothic style windows overlooking the forest, concealed stairs to the first floor with large cupboard beneath and open fireplace. The kitchen is a split level room with part reclaimed floorboards complemented by original flagstones and a range of painted units incorporating cupboards with beech tops over and part splashback, stainless steel sink unit, plumbing for dishwasher, fitted wall shelving, original fireplace with built in large pewter Aga, space for fridge/freezer and windows to front and rear. There is a large walk in under stairs larder. The adjacent utility room has space and plumbing for domestic appliances and overlooks the rear garden. From the kitchen a door leads through to the dining room, a wonderful entertaining at the heart of the house with fireplace, window to the front, a door leading to an original entrance porch and front door which also gives access to the secondary staircase to the first floor. The garden room has French style doors to the rear patio and a further door to the study/playroom with windows to the front and side.

On the first floor the master bedroom enjoys double aspect views over the forest and has a door through to the dressing room/bedroom five which has a full range of built in wardrobes (but could also be adapted to provide ensuite bathroom facilities if required).

The property is approached via a pedestrian gate to the side of the property. The garden is predominantly to the rear of the property, a substantial amount of which is laid to lawn, which in turn is interspersed with a mixture of mature trees, shrubs and flower borders. There is also a rose arbor, a large garden store and a 'wendy house'. In total the gardens extend to approximately 0.6 of an acre and are extremely well maintained having recently been totally re-fenced, offering a good deal of privacy and seclusion.
