Long Mead is centrally located in, arguably, one of the most beautiful and sought after villages in The New Forest, ideally situated to make full use of all the wonderful facilities the Forest has to offer. Whether it be sailing at nearby Lymington (12 miles) or golf at one of the many courses in the area including Burley or Brockenhurst with its mainline railway station (8 miles, Waterloo 90 minutes.) The market town of Ringwood is but a short drive away (5 miles). The larger shopping towns of Southampton (20 miles) to the east and Bournemouth (16 miles) to the west, both with their airports are both easily accessible.
The covered front porch with timber front door leads to the entrance hall with stairs to the first floor and doors to bedroom fourstudy, with a window to the front elevation and to the dining room which has French style doors opening onto the rear patio and a half round feature window to the side. An archway leads from the dining room into the spectacular sitting room with a vaulted ceiling with exposed wooden trusses and roof timbers of New Forest oak. Further to this are full height windows and double doors overlooking the rear garden, maple wood flooring with underfloor heating, clay tiled floor and a ‘Clearview‘ wood burning stove with exposed herringbone pattern brick hearth. There are three half round windows to the sides and a window to the front making this a delightful bright living space. From the dining room a door leads through to the kitchenbreakfast room with underfloor heating, fitted maple wood units with brushed chrome fittings, ‘Corian‘ worktops, integrated appliances including an AEG dual oven and microwave, four ring induction hob, fridge with freezer compartment, dishwasher, double sink with disposal unit, and ironing board. There is also a fitted table with bench seats either side. A door leads to the rear entrance lobby with a door to the garden, cloakroom (also housing the gas fired central heating boiler) and a separate utility room.
On the first floor there are two bedrooms - the master has fitted wardrobes, bedside cabinets and a dressing table and views over the rear garden. Bedroom two has a window to the front. The family bathroom has a five piece suite comprising; W.C, enclosed bath, separate shower cubicle with power shower, bidet and vanity wash hand basin with storage units below and above.
A staircase leads up to the second floor where there is a further attic bedroom with dual aspect dormer windows overlooking front and rear gardens suitable as a single or possibly twin bedroom or hobby room.
The delightful private gardens, extending to almost half an acre, are laid largely to lawn surrounded by mature hedges and fencing, creating a park- like setting. Immediately to the rear is a delightful, ‘Tuscany‘ sandstone patio with inset edge lighting, with adjacent raised planters containing specimen trees. The detached, four car garage has a pitched roof with extensive loft space and an electric up and over door. To the side is a fitted work bench and shelving and double doors providing access to the garden.
NOTE: In our opinion it could be possible to convert part of the rear of the garage building to a garden room (subject to the necessary Planning Permission).
