Comprising half of the original rectory to the neighbouring St Saviour's Church this spectacular family home has been sympathetically restored and updated whilst maintaining its Victorian character and charm. The property is situated within a secluded and quiet private road yet is only a 5 minute walk to the wide range of shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants in the centre of Brockenhurst village. A network of paths and cycle tracks allows easy access to miles of picturesque open forest and heath and within a few minutes' drive of the coast offers fabulous view over to the Isle of Wight and access to numerous nature reserves and only 8 minutes' walk to the mainline rain station that provides access to the whole of the country.
ACCOMMODATION The extensive accommodation (circa 3354 sq.ft.), arranged over a total of 3 floors with an extensive cellar has been beautifully modernised and refurbished to a bespoke specification with great emphasis on preserving many of the features of the period.
A traditional tiled porch to the fore and lobby features a stained glass door opening to a spectacular through reception hall with its associated cloakroom serving a number of fine, well-proportioned elegant reception rooms and an exceptional 'live-in' kitchen/family room with steps serving basement cellarage. A side hall serves a separate utility room, a walk in larder and drying room.
Overhead a total of 5 bedrooms are served by 3 bath/shower rooms (2 en suite) and a cloakroom.
OUTSIDE Externally the property is approached off a gated gravelled drive on which is situated a sizable double garage with access to one side that opens to a fine mainly lawned garden in itself being stocked with an array of mature shrubs that afford seasonal colour and interest with an area devoted to vegetable cultivation.
In all, a fine family home of character in a central village location.
