Property description



One of the finest and most impressive properties in Brockenhurst, a magnificent and substantial country house set in delightful gardens and grounds extending to approximately nine acres, with further land available by separate negotiation. The property benefits from garaging and stabling and enjoys direct forest access. Epr: G

Aldridge Hill is situated at the western end of Brockenhurst between Rhinefield and Black Knoll, directly opposite the open forest and close to the much famed Rhinefield Ornamental Drive.

The location is arguably one of the finest in Brockenhurst, with the village offering a mainline railway station with direct links to London Waterloo (approx. 90 minutes), a well-regarded primary school and tertiary college and a good local community of shops and restaurants.

The picturesque village of Beaulieu lies 7 miles to the east with the marina of Bucklers Hard on the Beaulieu River.

Approximately 4 miles to the south is the Georgian market town of Lymington with its extensive yachting facilities, its famous Saturday county market and ferry service to Yarmouth, Isle of Wight.

To the north is the village of Lyndhurst and Junction 1 of the M27 motorway which links to the M3 giving access to London.

Beachern Wood was commissioned and built in 1898 for the Baring family (of Barings Bank). In 1962, the then Duchess of Westminster bought the house and remained in residence until 1970, before selling to the Radonicich family. In 1972, the property was sold to Professor Penny, an internationally acclaimed engineer, best known for his leading role in developing the 'black box' flight recorder. It has remained in the same ownership ever since.

This classic property offers an elegant and varied facade of exposed brick and rendered elevations combined with protruding bay windows and stone surrounds, set under tile hung gabled roof lines. Internally, the accommodation extends to approximately 8,368.9 square feet and is beautifully proportioned across three floors.

Set opposite miles of open forest extending as far as the eye can see, the location for this wonderful residence is arguably one of the finest in the New Forest National Park.

The scene is set by a long sweeping driveway flanked by rhododendron bushes either side leading down to a turning circle and parking area in front of the house.

The stunning grounds surround the property to all sides with established tree and hedge borders providing a high degree of privacy and seclusion.

Set to the front of the property is a large expanse of level lawn with woodland walks set off to the far side.

To the rear of the property, a track dissects an area of formal garden and woodland, leading down to a detached garage block with storage facilities and a neighbouring run of stables.

The track continues beyond the stables, through trees before reaching a large metal farm gate, beyond which is a pathway providing access to two large paddocks.

In total, the gardens and grounds extend to approximately nine acres.

Nb. The opportunity exists to purchase additional land with the property adjoining the two large paddocks. The additional land made available amounts to approximately 18 acres and can be made available by separate negotiation.
