Originally constructed as the local vicarage this impressive family residence enjoys a generous plot approaching half an acre set along a private lane away from passing traffic.

Agents Notes

"From the first day 20+yrs ago we have enjoyed the quiet friendliness of Vicarage Lane in a thriving village community. Making many local friends and sharing the joy of exploring the New Forest through walks from our door."

"In this north-east corner of the New Forest we have rarely been stuck in traffic with all the route options available. We can confidently recommend The Brackens as a lovely comfortable home base from which to entertain or travel from."


Sitting centrally within its plot, surrounded by mature gardens, this wonderfully bright and well proportioned home has not been extended since its construction in the early 70's therefore offering scope to extend subject to the usual planning consents. All of the reception rooms and the principal bedrooms enjoy dual aspects and consequently offer a light and airy feel, with the master boasting a spacious en-suite bathroom and bedroom four benefiting from French doors to a sun terrace. Junctions 1 and 2 of the M27 are easily accessible with the market town of Romsey and the village of Lyndhurst equidistant.

Extensive storage is available supplemented by the larder. Integrated appliances include an eye level double oven and five burner gas hob with ornate extractor hood over and plumbing and space for white goods. The double integral garage can be accessed via the kitchen as well the rear garden. A further reception provides a sizeable study or additional family room with a cloakroom off the entrance hall. The first floor landing houses the airing cupboard and provides access to the loft space via a hatch and serves all four bedrooms and family bathroom. The master and second bedrooms enjoy dual aspects with an en-suite bathroom to the master comprising a corner bath with shower over, bidet, wc and wash basin with vanity mirror.
