A rare opportunity to acquire a detached bungalow in an idyllic location. Situated directly opposite the open New Forest heathland in this sought after hamlet, yet just a short drive from Lymington, this property offers excellent scope for improvement and extension, subject to planning permission.
This lovely bungalow has an area of garden to the front with a good size drive to one side and a cattle grid to keep some of the forest residents at bay! The front door opens into a welcoming hallway. There is a living room to the front, three good size bedrooms and a bathroom. Across the back of the property there is a further sitting/dining room with a conservatory and sun room which overlook the garden. The kitchen also overlooks the rear garden. Outside: The drive leads to a detached single garage. The rear garden is very private with a bright and sunny aspect, backing onto paddock land. There is a patio, an area of lawn, a large greenhouse, a summer house and brick outhouse/utility with gardener’s WC and timber workshop to the rear. There is also an area of garden to the side. Mains electricity, water and drainage are connected although there is no mains gas available. Situation Surrounded by open forest, yet only a mile to the Solent Shoreline, the hamlet of East End encapsulates the serenity of the New Forest. The rural beauty of this part of the forest is quite stunning, offering peace and relaxation throughout the year – even in the height of summer. There are endless walks and tracks for cycling through the woods, past ponds and streams frequented by free roaming ponies, donkeys, cattle and the odd pig or two. The nearby coast is a fabulous place to spend some time and offers glorious views to the Isle of Wight. The closest shop is in the next village – East Boldre. For more shops and supermarkets, the pretty Georgian marine town of Lymington is just 4 miles away. You won’t have to get in the car for a wonderful meal though, The East End Arms owned by John Illsley of the Dire Straits is a short walk away. It’s a friendly pub with superb food and drinks.
