Introduction

The setting of Drifthole Cottage is delightful, providing true peace and tranquillity, tucked away from the country road down a private gravel lane in the very heart of the cattle grid area of the New Forest National Park where ponies and deer roam freely.
The accommodation offers a blend of contemporary and characterful styling yet all with a country feel, characterised by bespoke quality wood finishes, exposed brickwork and feature fireplaces hosting cosy woodburning stoves. The flexibility to adapt the living space to suit is ideal and is one of the many charming qualities of this country residence.


Description

Drifthole Cottage opens into a beautifully crafted reception hall of solid oak beams feature oak panelling and an elegant staircase with bleached mahogany doors and full height windows overlooking the pool and open forest beyond. A feature brick chimney with triple aspect log burning stove services the reception hall from which all other rooms radiate including the downstairs cloakroom. Steps descend to a pretty triple aspect sitting room which enjoys attractive views and hosts a door to the large conservatory.
An inner hall with double doors to the garden leads to the well appointed kitchen breakfast room which is fitted with a range of wall and base units with wooden worktops. Integrated appliances include a gas range and built in double oven and there is a large useful storage cupboard and door to the garden within the breakfast area. Adjacent is a spacious study of triple aspect, with access to the gardens and can easily serve as a fifth bedroom or be integrated to form a substantial kitchen living room. On the opposite side of the reception hall is a further sizeable bedroom offering garden access, extensive wardrobe space and a recently refurbished contemporary ensuite comprising glass double shower cubicle with low level WC and underfloor heating.
The exquisite oak staircase leads to a vaulted galleried landing with exposed beams and timbers and a feature gable end picture window overlooking the gardens. Undoubtedly the most impressive room of the house is the master bedroom, accessed via double oak doors and curved circular steps down to the luxurious 25ft space. There is a feature fireplace with oak mantel hosting a Morso woodburning stove, stripped pine floors and bleached mahogany windows to the front aspects enjoying exquisite far reaching views from each. A staircase ascends further into a converted dressing room with fitted cupboards and potential for an ensuite although there is a separate shower room already adjacent to the bedroom. Bedroom two is equally attractive with exposed beams, a vaulted ensuite bathroom and double doors to a large balcony to enjoy the exceptional views. A third bedroom with storage completes the accommodation and provides ample size for further re-arrangement of bedroom space to suit many needs.


Outside

Accessed by a private track across a pretty green, secure automated gates open into the extensive lawns via a sweeping gravel drive to the brick built double garage. Predominantly lawned and studded with an array of fruit and ornamental trees the gardens offer 360 degree views of the New Forest and host a large outbuilding previously used as stabling/pool room providing exciting potential for development or conversion into a gym, office or possible annex, subject to planning permission. The formal gardens are also private, centred upon a kidney shaped pool and attractive surrounding terrace with retractable awning and lighting. The gardens are fully enclosed, ideal for dogs and children. Within the 1.6 acres there is ample space and opportunity to create a paddock area if required.


Location

The highly sought after village of Bramshaw, within the heart of the National Park enjoys a thriving community with active village hall and small shop. There are a choice of excellent country pubs including The Green Dragon and the revered Bell Inn adjacent to the Golf club, thought to be one of the oldest in the country. The village enjoys an idyllic rural setting yet is perfectly positioned within close proximity of Junction 1 or 2 of the M27, ideal for commuter access and mainline railway at Ashurst.


Agents Notes

The property is served by oil fired central heating, LPG gas for cooking and a Klargester sewage treatment plant. The pool is heated by an efficient air source heat pump and the property is alarmed.
