Situated only 1.5 miles south of Brockenhurst, Setley Farm is located on a private lane leading to the Roydon Manor Estate, which encompasses Royden Woods, a designated conservation area offering a wonderful opportunity for long dog walks, horse riding and enjoying/exploring the 1,000 acre woods on the doorstep. Brockenhurst village is within the New Forest National Park, an area of outstanding natural beauty with areas of ancient woodlands and heathland enjoyed by both riders and walkers alike. The village offers a mainline railway station with direct links to London Waterloo in approximately 90 minutes and a good local community of shops and restaurants. The Georgian coastal town of Lymington is only four miles to the south with its famous Saturday country market, extensive yachting facilities and ferry service to the Isle of Wight. To the north is the village of Lyndhurst and Junction 1 of the M27 motorway which quickly links to the M3 giving access to London.



Setley Farm has an interesting provenance, dating back to the early 19th Century, when it operated as a small working dairy farm serving the main Royden Manor Estate. The original property comprises an elegant red brick façade balanced by casement windows set under a pitched slate roof. In recent years, the property has been extended and reconfigured to provide beautifully appointed accommodation in line with a more modern way of life. The ground floor accommodation exudes a sense of traditional charm and is accessed from a large, welcoming central hallway featuring a vaulted ceiling with two Velux windows, exposed wooden beams and quarry tiled flooring. At the end of the entrance hall is a cleverly concealed utility area and a door opening out to the rear aspect. The beautiful sitting room benefits from a charming beamed ceiling as well as an attractive Inglenook open fireplace and three sets of double windows enjoying views across the land to the south. Adjoining the sitting room is a lovely kitchen providing an elegant fusion of modern fittings and character features such as ceiling beams, exposed brickwork with original bread oven and quarry tiled flooring. The kitchen is fitted with a stylish range of wall and base units, roll top worksurfaces and built-in appliances including a double oven and inset gas hob. There is also space and plumbing for an American style fridge/freezer and dishwasher. Set off the kitchen is a most impressive triple aspect garden room/dining area offering views of the surrounds with a glazed pitched roof and door opening out onto the rear garden. Set to the other side of the entrance hall is an inner hallway linking to a study room/bedroom five one side and a complimenting bathroom with large walk in fully tiled shower to the other. At the end of the inner hallway a door leads through into an additional wing which is currently configured as a fantastic master suite. A substantial dressing room with vaulted ceiling, Velux window and exposed wooden beams features an extensive range of fitted Sharps wardrobe units and French doors opening out to the rear garden. From here, a door leads to the double aspect master bedroom overlooking the front and side aspect, with French doors opening out to main driveway. Stairs from the central hallway lead up to the first floor landing area which in turn links to two double bedrooms, a double aspect single bedroom at the front and a family bathroom comprising a bath with shower over, wash hand basin and wc. Two of the bedrooms feature built-in wardrobes, with all of the bedrooms enjoying stunning elevated views across the various aspects. The main front bedroom further benefits from an original feature fireplace.



A gravelled access lane serving the Royden Manor Estate leads down to a twin gated driveway providing ample off road parking for several vehicles and access to a detached double garage of brick construction with recently fitted electric doors and a pitched slate roof. Adjacent to the garage is a gated holding yard with three loose boxes of brick/block and timber construction with power, water and light connected. The gardens are laid essentially to lawn incorporating attractive shrub borders. To the rear of the property there is an extensive paved terrace with steps leading to an area of lawn. The main garden area then extends up to the edge of the woods. At the end of the garden is a superb timber outbuilding providing a wonderful place to sit and enjoy the stunning elevated views across the top of the house and beyond. This excellent outbuilding provides options for numerous usages and would make an ideal home office/yoga/gym room, from where to enjoy the surrounding nature. Adjacent to the rear garden is a level paddock flanked by post and rail fencing. A further area of land adjoins the boundaries of the top paddock. Directly opposite the access lane there are two well fenced areas of turn out rising to a level from where elevated, panoramic views can be enjoyed of the house and surrounding woodland. In total to land attributed to the property amounts just under 6.5 acres with water laid on. The property offers an ideal prospect for any discerning purchaser with an interest in the countryside and equestrian pursuits, having the open forest within only a few hundred yards.
