Woodlands is situated in the sought-after hamlet of Sandy Down, in Boldre parish with its C11th church. The New Forest National Park is within easy walking distance with the open heath of Setley Pond to one side and the Lymington river valley to the other. The house backs onto Roydon Woods, a mix of woodlands, streams, and heathland, and a site of special scientific interest. Despite its rural setting, the village of Brockenhurst, is just two miles to the north, and benefits from a mainline station with direct access to London Waterloo and a selection of local facilities including shops, restaurants, primary school, popular tertiary college, and golf club. Lymington, two miles to the south, is a vibrant Georgian market town with world renown yachting facilities, Saturday market, ferry service to the Isle of Wight, good schools and an excellent range of shops.
Woodlands is a rarity, it has the charms associated with a period property, yet offers all the comforts and luxuries expected for 21st century family living. The quality and attention to detail is outstanding. Traditional materials, including Michelmersh bricks with corbel detailing and handmade clay roof tiles, are blended with modern technology.

The gabled entrance porch opens onto an impressive reception hall with limestone flooring, bespoke turning staircase with hand carved oak banister and galleried landing. Wide double doors lead through to the drawing room: an elegant room featuring a Chesney limestone fireplace with granite hearth, while bi-fold doors open the room to the gardens and woodland beyond.

All the principal reception rooms are positioned along the back of the house, so that they benefit from additional privacy and make the most of the impressive views. These rooms ‘flow’ into each other, creating flexible, multifunctional spaces ideal for family life. The drawing room leads into the dining room with its engineered French Oak floor, a Clearview wood burning stove, Chesney fireplace and 1909 dressers.

The dining room opens onto the kitchen/breakfast/family room a light-filled space with vaulted ceiling and bifolding doors to the rear. Fitted with kitchen furniture by 1909 with oak and quartz worktops it features glazed dresser, free standing pantry and a large island unit. Appliances include integrated Miele fridge, freezer and dishwasher as well as an Everhot electric range with induction hob with Miele gas hob, microwave combi oven and separate wine fridge as well as a hidden ‘popup’ power point and USB charger.

Other significant rooms downstairs include a utility/boot room which provides extra storage as well as an additional butler sink and dishwasher. The large airing cupboards contain the hot water cylinder, boiler and water softener. The study houses the CCTV security and WiFi systems. The fifth bedroom / AV room has its own terrace reached via bi-fold doors. Features include underfloor heating running throughout the whole of the downstairs and all the windows to the front having bespoke hardwood shutters with silent split.
Adjacent to the house is a separate games room consisting of a well proportioned room with vaulted ceiling and a bathroom, which could be suitable for use as a gym, art studio, or home office.

First floor accommodation includes four spacious double bedrooms. The master has a vaulted ceiling, views over the gardens, and comprises access to a west-facing roof terrace, en suite bathroom and walk-in wardrobe. The guest bedroom also features a vaulted ceiling with en suite bathroom, while the two remaining bedrooms share a ‘Jack and Jill’ bathroom. All these bathrooms feature classically-styled sanitaryware with brassware by Perrin & Rowe, big walk-in showers with rainfall shower heads and underfloor heating.

The interiors are finished to an exceptionally high standard in a scheme of soft neutrals. The palette of paints and fabrics include Farrow & Ball, Brentano and Osborne & Little. Carpet is 100 per cent wool and feature lighting includes Jim Lawrence, Oka and Vaughan. The attention to detail throughout the house is impressive. Every individual component is the best it can be: from the craftsmanship of the lead work to the underfloor heating system operated by touch screen controls with remote Wi-Fi access.

Woodlands makes the most of its picturesque views and tranquil setting with many rooms having direct access to either the garden or large roof terrace. The garden is a natural haven of approximately an acre and a half, and offers areas of interest including a fire pit, summer house, gazebo, mature borders and its own woodland. Situated within the New Forest National Park and backing onto the beautiful Roydon Woods, yet only a short drive from both Brockenhurst mainline station and Lymington’s shops and marinas, Woodlands offers an exceptional opportunity to have the best of both worlds.

Woodlands is approached through an electric gate which opens onto a wide gravelled drive with turning circle and extensive parking. To the right sits a large oak-framed, double garage with electric wooden doors, a car port, loft and external store. Indian sandstone has been used to create walkways and seating areas around the house. Lawns and mature trees surround the property which has its own woodland to the rear. Established borders and more recent planting provide colour and interest all year round.
