Urban & Country Homes. Arguably one of the FINEST & most SOUGHT after residential positions in the NEW FOREST. Seamless blend of TRADITIONAL & CONTEMPORARY living. NESTLING in approx. 1 ACRE of GROUNDS, stunning RESIDENCE, SYMPATHETICALLY MODERNISED & INTERIOR designed accommodation.

Urban & Country Homes. Burley is one of the most sought after residential addresses anywhere on the south coast. Burley depicts everything you would expect from a traditional, New Forest village. Nestling in the lee of a hill surrounded by an area of true outstanding natural beauty. A dramatic contrast of colourful heathlands, mighty oaks, beeches and lofty pines.

Ponies and cattle roam freely around this lovely village, following ancient forest tracks used for centuries by Commoners and their livestock. Burley is one of the few remaining villages that still practices the old tradition of Commoning, allowing animals to graze on the Open Forest. Picturesque thatched cottages tucked away in unexpected places help conjure up images of how life was in days gone by. Burley has remained untouched by time, steeped in old customs and history.

Merry Gardens Cottage is tucked away in an unexpected place. Approached via automatic electric gates, this exceptional property nestles in grounds which measure in the region of 1 acre. The original property was constructed in the mid 19th century and retains all the charm and character commonly associated with this era of architecture. The external façade are a combination of hung tile and exposed brick under a pitched and tiled roof with various original chimneys adding to the chocolate box first impressions.

Upon entry to the reception hall it is immediately obvious that although significant originality has been retained, there is a seamless blend of contemporary and tradition. Care has been taken to sympathetically modernise throughout. The contemporary is highlighted by the wonderful open plan living area which incorporates the stunning kitchen with sleek handle less units, sun lounge overlooking the pool area, conservatory and dining area. Modern day living demands the kitchen is at the centre of the home, a place to congregate and spend time with family and friends. This exceptional space would satisfy the most discerning buyer. A formal sitting room affording a dual aspect and wood burner complements the ground floor living area.

The bedrooms occupy the first floor. The master bedroom suite has views to the front over the driveway and side gardens whilst the `French` style double opening doors provide views of adjoining paddocks to the rear. Both the master bedroom and guest bedroom are serviced by en-suite facilities each having a distinctly contemporary appeal, as does the main family bathroom. All 4 bedrooms will accommodate double beds with all but bedroom 4 affording a dual aspect.

There are many outstanding features of this bespoke home - too many to mention. However the outside heated swimming pool is one such feature that must be mentioned. Enjoying a secluded position on the east side of the property with a purpose built pool house.

Burley is ideally positioned for those seeking tranquillity and seclusion in the heart of the New Forest. Located to the east of the historic town of Christchurch and just 5 miles from the market town of Ringwood Burley is also within close proximity of the A31 providing easy and fast access to the M27 with routes to Southampton and onwards via the M3 to Winchester, and London via the M25.
