Owners Comments

“Over the last 30 years we have loved watching the animals from the comfort of our own home, enjoyed long walks with our dogs and had fun making bramble jam with our children.

We have been fortunate to live in a secluded location with direct forest access whilst benefiting from local pubs under 2 miles away and good local shops under 3 miles away.

We can get to the M27 in 8 minutes, the nearest mainline station to London in only 20 minutes and the cities of Southampton and Salisbury in under 25-minutes.

We have loved the lifestyle offered by the location of our home and hope that the next family will too.”


The Hollies is a sophisticated family home enjoying bright accommodation with many of its views and much natural light afforded via a dual aspect and retains much of its period elegance subtly fused with the convenience of contemporary living.

The property is perfectly nestled within its landscaped formal gardens approaching 1/3 acre, whilst the separate holding paddock extends to over 1/2 acre. This luxurious home benefits from a wealth of superior features completed to a high level of detail including individual feature doors, an impressive vaulted conservatory, intricate lighting and a bespoke hardwood steel and back lit, open tread staircase. Every consideration to convenience has been undertaken and is evident in each room particularly within the spacious kitchen living room which hosts a full range of integrated appliances, including a Casmetal hot, cold and sparkling water tap.

The layout is both practical and well designed, providing an ideal social flow through the ground floor with four double bedrooms on the first floor, each enjoying stunning views, particularly from the Juliet balcony in the master bedroom.

The gardens are equally well maintained, comprising landscaped formal gardens, a host of outbuildings and a holding paddock with direct forest access. Offering appeal to a wide range of prospective purchasers including the equestrian enthusiast, the excellent outdoor chalet could easily be utilised as an ideal annexe or office space for those looking for multi occupancy or working from home (subject to planning permission).


A contemporary glass and steel front porch and composite front door open into the entrance hall which hosts access to a stylish cloakroom comprising vanity unit with oak cupboards, low level WC and hand sensor mirror with inset LED clock. Laminate flooring with walkway plinth lighting flows to the raised carpeted sitting room centred upon a feature gas fire with dark glass back panel. This is a delightful room which, like much of the accommodation enjoys dual aspect, LED lighting and an integrated audio system. Central to the house is the reception hall providing an ideal social flow to the kitchen and conservatory in an open plan styling via large glazed floor tiles. There is LED mood uplighting and the bespoke hardwood, steel and glass panel staircase.

The conservatory is a wonderful relaxation venue to enjoy garden views and the southerly aspect, benefitting from a pitched tinted glass roof and bi fold doors to the sun patio.

The kitchen has been beautifully fitted and comprises an extensive range of eye and base level cabinets with a host of integrated appliances including a seven burner Smeg gas range cooker with AEG extractor, fridge, freezer and dishwasher. The central island offers further storage, work space and a Casmetal hot, cold and sparkling water tap whilst a breakfast bar provides informal dining. The kitchen is supplemented by a utility room with a stable door leading to a useful store accessed via a covered walkway. The dining room extends from the kitchen in a convenient open plan styling and benefits from a feature inset gas fire with simulated brick back plate. The landing features an impressive LED chandelier, and luxurious carpets flow to the four double bedrooms, mainly benefiting from a dual aspect and wonderful views over the gardens and open New Forest. The master bedroom hosts fitted wardrobes with internal lighting and a lovely Juliet balcony to enjoy the views. It also benefits from an ensuite facility, contemporarily fitted and comprising a large walk in shower and seat, WC and vanity unit. The remaining bedrooms are served by the lovely family bathroom equipped with a walk in shower, spa bath, vanity unit, WC and LED “in tile” lighting.

The formal gardens extend to a third of an acre and are beautifully landscaped with feature flower borders enclosed by close board fencing and predominantly laid to lawn. There is a block paved patio area with awning adjacent to the house to enjoy the southerly, sunny aspect. A suite of outbuildings include an excellent timber chalet which could serve as an office, gym or games room served by power and lighting. There is also a workshop with new slate roof, tool store and green house. Accessed via a five bar gate the holding paddock extends to over half an acre and has separate direct forest access.


The highly sought after village of Bramshaw, within the heart of the National Park enjoys a thriving community with active village hall and small shop.
