A rare and exciting opportunity to secure a delightfully refurbished character cottage in the desirable village of Exbury perfectly situated in the heart of the New Forest National Park within walking distance to the sea.


Originally built by the Rothschild family as part of their plans to create a rural village idyll within the Exbury country estate. This charming home has undergone an extensive programme of works creating a stunning live in kitchen and open dining area, beautifully styled with quality units and solid granite work surfaces, a large central island and breakfast bar. The impressive decor is evident throughout the property with the three double bedrooms on the first floor served by a luxurious bathroom which includes a freestanding Villeroy & Boch bath and highly contemporary art deco style sanitary ware. The generous plot approaching a fifth of an acre of mature gardens benefits from rear and side access as well as timber outbuildings, an attached brick shed and a gated access to the enclosed front garden.


This picturesque cottage sits back from a country lane as part of six architect designed semi-detached properties and being part of a conservation area due to their ‘arts and crafts’ design and local significance.

Walking under the rose arch, through the gate and down the cottage garden path leads to a striking red front door opening into the welcoming entrance hall. The cottage immediately exudes quality, rich with character with a hand crafted settle and storage bench, high ceilings and vibrantly carpeted stairs to the first floor. The charming sitting room features a corner log burning stove with period fire surround whilst enjoying natural light from dual aspect windows. The stunning kitchen breakfast room offers a range of high quality wall and base units which include a large central island and breakfast bar complemented by solid granite worksurfaces. Integrated Bosch appliances include an induction hob with hood over, two single ovens, double fridges, dishwasher and a pull down spray monotap in addition to a filter/ boiling water tap. French doors lead to the mature garden.

The dining area is open to the kitchen creating a sociable space, ideal for entertaining. A large walk in larder with window provides additional storage and utility space including plumbing for the washing machine. The first floor landing allows access to the loft space and serves the three generous double bedrooms. The second bedroom has been thoughtfully portioned to offer two sleeping areas. The master bedroom boasts fitted and walk in wardrobes and enjoys views over the green and cricket field opposite. The fully tiled bathroom comprises a beautiful free standing Villeroy and Boch bath, high quality art deco style black sanitary ware and separate glass shower cubicle.


The property is accessed over a gravel forest track with a green and large oak trees to the front with gated access to the mature garden creating an attractive and colourful frontage. Double gates to the side of the property lead to the rear garden past a useful garden store. The large rear garden is predominantly laid to lawn and is brimming with a variety of shrubs and flower beds as well as a number of fruit trees. Two timber sheds provide useful storage along with an insulated cabin fitted with power and light adjacent to a barbeque area. The garden extends to the rear boundary where there is a five bar gate offering access onto a quiet and rural track leading to footpaths through the local bluebell woods.


Exbury is situated at the southern edge of the New Forest National Park known for the location of Exbury House and the famous Gardens built and owned by the Rothschild family. Exbury is a quiet and rural retreat providing the very best of country living including access to bridleways, footpaths, woodland and the coast including Lepe Beach. Exbury has a thriving social club and a small yet very warm community feel. In front of the cottage is the village cricket pitch and the fields beyond lead down the shore and the walk is level and beautiful in all seasons. Although Exbury has a quiet and secluded feel it is minutes from local shops, public transport and other amenities. The stunning village of Beaulieu with its individual shops, hotel and palace is a short distance away. The market town of Lymington and bustling forest village of Brockenhurst offer a wealth of amenities including a direct link to London Waterloo. The open forest and coast on the doorstep offer fantastic walking and riding with sailing and many other country and coastal pursuits available locally.
