A most interesting 1930s character home in parkland-style grounds of over 3 acres with opportunity for further development if desired. There are also two access points, a large detached double barn-style garage as well as an office/studio complex of outbuildings. Energy Efficiency Rating: D.

Situated in the highly regarded area of Boldre, a delightful and rural enclave of individual properties situated within a short drive of both Lymington and Brockenhurst. The coastal town of Lymington has a range of boutique shops, gastro pubs and supermarkets, two private marinas and the Royal Lymington Yacht Club. There is a range of private and state schooling in the area. The New Forest National Park offers outstanding natural beauty and extensive walking and horse riding opportunities.

Lymington 0.5 mile. Brockenhurst 3.5 miles (London Waterloo from 93 minutes). Beaulieu 6 miles. Southampton Airport 23 miles (London Waterloo from 69 minutes). (Times and distances approximate).

This delightful property was built in 1931 and is a home of great character and charm. Whilst fully renovated it has the additional attraction of planning permission in place to extend the main property to one side with a double storey extension. It is set within a stunning plot of land with two access points and the potential to not only develop the existing property but also an office/studio complex of outbuildings. There is also a large detached double barn-style garage.

Steeped in character features from the 1930’s including the original character front door, a solid oak turning staircase in the hallway leading up to a part-galleried landing, original Crittall windows and working servants’ bells. The main reception room has a stripped floor and a wonderful open fireplace. There are ample windows and glazed doors to the garden room. There is a formal dining room and a comprehensively and recently refurbished fitted kitchen/breakfast room. A cloak room and storage cupboard are accessed from the hallway.

The first floor part-galleried landing is a feature of note with dual aspect windows over the stairwell including an unusual Oriel window. There is a large airing cupboard, separate cloakroom and four bedrooms, two with fitted storage cupboards and serviced by the family bathroom.

Agents Note: Full planning permission has been granted for the addition of a double storey extension to allow for a master bedroom with en-suite and rooms to the ground floor.
Extending to some 3 acres and designed with both formal areas and wooded walks with a separate entrance from Boldre Lane, the grounds enjoy a parkland feel having an array of rhododendrons, other colourful shrubs and stunning mature trees. A long gravel driveway leads to the property passing the barn-style double garage building. There is ample parking for vehicles and boats and access to the office building with adjacent outbuildings. These offer great potential to further enhance the property already having water and power supplies. There is a raised entertaining terrace to the rear of the house next to the garden room and the whole enjoys complete privacy.
